Are you already thinking about what kind of swimsuit you’re going to wear this summer? You’re not alone. The winter is actually the perfect time to start thinking about those summer plans and an even better time of year to find deals on summer fashions. When it comes to swimsuits, however, finding one that’s appealing for your age and flattering to your body can be a real pain.
There are so many guides out there, but by the time you’re done reading them you can’t help but start staring in the mirror comparing your body type to a piece of fruit. Is there an easier way to find a swimsuit that will meet your needs and make you look great? Check out these tips below:
If you have a fuller chest than you want to find a bathing suit that provides moderate coverage up top. This means looking for a bathing suit that has wider straps as well as perhaps a wire underneath for additional support. You’ll want to avoid spaghetti straps and extra padding in the chest area as this will boost your breasts and show too much cleavage.
If you have a smaller chest, on the other hand, you’ll want to draw more attention to that area. In this case, a push-up swimsuit with additional padding will help bring them out.
If you’re a curvy girl then there’s nothing wrong with showing off your figure. Accentuate the areas you want to show off with vibrant colors and hide what you don’t want to be seen with darker colors. They have full swimsuit options that come in flattering colors and patterns for plus-size women. If you’re a bit self-conscious walking out on the beach or to the pool in a swimsuit you can always pair it with plus size rompers and some cute flats.
If you don’t have very many curves, there are quite a few swimsuit options available that will look flattering and appeal to your best features. Two pieces are the best fitting for your body type. You want to bring out both your top and bottom so look for a piece with a lot of design and detail. For instance, a full coverage bikini bottom with a belt and a top with ruffles or a vibrant print would look amazing.
Ladies with a shorter torso would be best served by purchasing a swimsuit that elongates the body. One piece swimsuits are a more flattering choice. Look for patterns or design that help to add length like vertical stripes and other asymmetrical designs.
Taller ladies might want to draw attention away from their height and might, therefore, prefer to go with a two piece which helps to break things up. Opt for horizontal designs and/or two-toned colored pieces for a more flattering appeal.
What woman isn’t worried about her tummy in a swimsuit? If you’ve got a little extra to love around your stomach and you’d like to cover it up, there are swimsuits with stomach trimming technology to help pull everything in.
So, as you can see, you don’t have to compare yourself to a pear or an apple to figure out what type of swimsuit you should get yourself this summer. Take a look in the mirror and determine which features you want to emphasize and which you’d rather keep hidden, then look for a bathing suit that accentuates those areas. The last trick of the trade is, whatever swimsuit you get, rock it with confidence.
