Celebrity Swimwear: Liv Tyler Goes Retro-Glam In Lisa Curran

Who says curvy girls have to cover up in one pieces during beach season? Certainly not glamazon Liv Tyler, who foregoes binding "miracle" fabrics and instead shows off her hourglass figure in a Lisa Curran bandeau bikini. Liv makes a smart choice by pairing a strapless, twisty top ($75) in a retro polka dot print with a solid-colored bottom ($75) with subtle ring details. The dark bottom downplays Liv's lower half (yes, black is even slimming when applied to teeny-weeny bikini bottoms!) while the bandeau's big, busy print and volume-adding shape draw attention upwards.

Even if you're not as curvy as Liv, you can still cop her '50s-inspired beach bunny look. If you've got more of a boy shaped bod than Liv, opt for a similar cut patterned with horizontal stripes that give the illusion of curves; ShopBop carries the perfect option— a Lisa Curran striped bandeau two-piece in either classic black and white or more daring red and white ($160). Or maybe all-over dots are more your thing—a medium-sized, repetitive pattern on top and bottom keeps the eye constantly moving, which has an overall slimming effect (no time to pause on body "hot spots"). Get Lisa's Curran's fresh kelly green bandeau and ring-bottom set from Bluefly ($101). Uncertain about going sans straps? Not to worry—Lisa Curran's suits are all fitted according to cup size, so you'll get the coverage and support you need, even if you're not exactly an A cup.

Looking for a look like Liv's? Here are some tops, bottoms, and sets that play on the shape, dotty pattern, and mix-n-match effect Liv masters. Pick the pair that's right for your body shape, and get out there and catch some rays!
