Ah summer – the perfect time for playing on the beach, catching some waves, and working on that tan. And best of all, you don’t even have to spend half your summer in the changing rooms, trying to find a swimsuit that does the job. Simply follow these easy tips below to help you find the perfect women swimsuit, every single time!
Knowing what your body type is, is going to cut your effort in half. If you know what you’re working with, you can play to your strengths, and more effectively disguise what you might perceive as your weaknesses. We’ll take a bit of a dive into body types shortly, but for now, let’s talk about confidence first.
If you are someone who enjoys exercise and does it often, you might feel confident about your body. In general, however, people tend to carry several deep insecurities about their body, and in particular, its size. Here’s the first hack to looking good in absolutely anything: if you wear it with confidence, you will feel great wearing it! Think about the last time you saw someone walking slumped over, making themselves smaller, or insecurely tucking in their tummy to give the illusion of being lighter than they are – they didn’t fool anyone, did they? Counter this by proudly being the size you are, are walking tall no matter your shape or size – confidence is contagious, and you are gorgeous exactly the way that you are!
What shape are you?
A slim body type, can benefit from a swimsuit cut that creates the illusion of more curves. Think about bikinis or one-pieces with detailed cut-outs to help break up the straight lines. If you would like to give a smaller bust a boost, the classic triangle top goes a long way in creating an appearance that makes you look more full-busted. Small on the bottom? Lucky you – you can go to town with ruffles, embellishments and other bedazzling elements without looking unbalanced!
Comfortable, Stylish and Flattering
The point of slimming swimsuits for women is not to feel as though you are being squeezed into a corset – the right fit will leave you feeling comfortable and looking like a million bucks! Remember that you will need to move around in your swimsuit, so steer clear of anything that will hinder your movement (and by implication, your fun!)
Smooth out your tummy with a ruffled or ruched one-piece, and look for something with body control sections if you really need to feel very sure of yourself! You will be amazed at how well vintage looks suit a fuller figure, and anything with drapery or wraps will go a long way in smoothing out any troublesome bumps.
Luckily, slimming swimsuits come in a huge variety of colors and designs – just be sure to pick a color that flatters your skin tone.
