Bathing suit season is FAST approaching. How do you survive that dreaded time of the year when that extra slice of cake, or choosing to eat pizza instead of salad, can’t be hidden. It is never too late to try to eat better or watch what we eat, so go ahead and start those good habits today. In the mean time though, we need to find a bathing suit that fits and flatters the person we are now.When we think of bathing suits, the first thing that comes to mind is not camoflauge. But, that is exactly what we need to think about. How to hide our flaws and accent our better assets. I am going to start at the top and go down.
If you are large chested, you have to keep your “assets” under control. One way to do this is to pick a suit with wide straps. Suits with underwire support and molded cups, are really important for those of you who are large chested. Here is a plus size suit that fits all those requirements.
Small chested ladies have issues also. You want to add volume to your chest area, and ruffles are one way to enhance your assets. This swimsuit has padded cups and an added bow across the chest, giving you double enhancements. If you are small chested, you can wear the bandeau-top or the bustier-top.
W i d e Shoulders:
Having wide shoulders can make you have the illusion of having an hourglass figure with a little help. If you pick a solid color suit with designs down the sides, this will give the illusion of a smaller waistline. You can also rock the one-shoulder look that is so glamorous.
There are many ways to disguise a thick waistline. This is the one bathing suit that I am VERY familiar with. I like the crisscross or wrap design suits. They draw your eye inward, away from the sides which are thicker. A fly-away top or a tier top, can hide unwanted poundage.
The swimdress is a very popular style that can look cute-as-a-button and hide a problem area with ease. Another style that can help minimize the heavier thigh is the garbo style. This incorporates boy shorts in a bathing suit. Everyone will be impressed at your choice of a vintage-style bathing suit.
I really like a wide variety of bathing suits, well as much as anyone can actually LIKE a bathing suit, so I thought I would show you some of my favorite styles.
Remember when you are shopping for a tankini, the tops and bottoms can be sold as a suit, or as separates. Make sure you read the fine print so you aren’t disappointed when the mail runs and you only receive a top. I am not saying that might have happened to me. Haha
A bathing suit is just another piece of clothing. Don't stress over how you look. Pick the one to best fit your body type, and then be confident that you look GREAT! I guarantee that you only you care how you look, everyone else is just glad that you joined them at the pool, lake, or ocean. Don't let a bathing suit keep you from enjoying yourself.
