Curved side seams

Hello all! I need to query the sewing expert database for the first time:

I am drafting a pattern for a swimsuit and want to move the hourglass shaped side seams to the side front - where princess line seams would go. Is this possible? Is it somehow like rotating a dart? Do I simply widen the back and narrow the front? That doesn't seem like it would get the right shape where the side seams should go, but it's stretchy swimsuit fabric. I'm trying to envision how that would work, but just can't quite wrap my head around it. That could also be because it's getting late. :)

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
