Swimsuits For Every Body Type
Finding A Swimsuit You Are Comfortable In
Bathing Suit Season!
Summer is here and the only thing on your list should be sipping margaritas by the pool— in a cute bikini of course— showing off that toned physique you worked all winter and spring for. Now let’s be real, not all of us are “summer bod” ready, and that’s okay. As long as you wear your confidence, any swimsuit you choose will look great. It is key that you find a swimsuit you are confident in. With so many styles and colors to choose from, shopping for a swimsuit can be overwhelming. Don’t be afraid to try something new this summer, but always make sure to choose a swimsuit that will enhance your confidence. Here are a few tips and tricks to follow when choosing a swimsuit that is right for your body type.
For the ladies with an athletic build you want to find a swimsuit that will give you a nice silhouette.You want to look for a bottom that has a high cut, like a Brazilian. A high cut will accentuate your waist and give you an hourglass shape. Avoid strapless tops, unless you are strictly tanning and want to avoid tan lines. Instead, opt for halter tops and tops with cut outs that create dimension and enhance your strong upper body. You can also opt for a one-piece with side cut outs to give you an elegant but feminine silhouette.
High waisted bottoms are perfect for an hourglass body. Think Marilyn Monroe. Choose high waisted bottoms with a thick band that will keep everything compact and in place. You don’t want the bottoms too high because it will shorten your torso. Your tummy and waist will look leaner, and a halter top will provide enough support for your chest.
Tall and Thin Frame
For a thin frame, there are many styles and cuts that will flatter you, but certain styles will flatter your shape even more so. You want bottoms that have a higher cut at your legs, but sit low under your belly button. A higher leg opening will accentuate your long legs and will enhance your bottom. If you are flat chested, don’t fret about extra padding or having a push-up top. A busy print or a ruffled top will add volume and dimension to your chest. A tiny triangle top that hugs your chest will also flatter your small frame.
If you have a big bust and you like to cover up, a swimsuit with a high neck line is a great choice. If you are comfortable showing cleavage, a swimsuit with a deep cut that allows your chest to rest, but still gives enough support is important. A halter top is a great choice because it allows you to adjust the amount of support you are most comfortable with. When choosing a design for your bottoms you want to aim for a swimsuit with side panels. Different colored panels give the illusion of a smaller waist. You don’t have to wear black to look smaller so have fun and play with color.
