In the last decade or so, plus swimwear has come a long, long, long, way. It is definitely more fashion forward with it’s alluring designs, slimming features and expanded choices. However my curvy sisters, can still face some difficulty in choosing the right suit. So I have a few tips that I hope will make your summer a bit more spectacular!
Shop By Body Type:
Shopping for a suit is in a way an art and a science. You want to find a suite that accentuates your best features while detracting from those shall I shall problem areas. We all have them so there is no shame here. You can determine the best style for your body with a lot less stress once you know your body type. There are lots of variation on body types. All stem from the core types, I will hit the most common types in this post.
Pear-shaped women should try to focus on accentuating their bust and upper body, while concealing the lower part of their body.
This will include ladies with larger legs, thighs and booty. Pair solid bottoms with bright colors and patterns that draw the eye upward. The best styles for you will be Shirtinis, Tankini sets, or one-piece with brightly colored tops.
Apple-shaped women with larger shoulders, chests, stomachs will want to draw the eye down with flowing designs and styles. Choosing an all over print instead of solids will be the best option to channel the focus to your legs and covering more boobage will also help. Try a Swim dresses or one-piece suits with all over print.
Women in this body type have a waist that is smaller than both bust and hip measurements. This most sought after body type is pictured in most every magazine in the world. Even so there are still issues for the women with this coveted silhouette.
Find swimwear that emphasize the waist by drawing the attention to the smallest part of the body and in this case that is the waist. This can be done by choosing a suit with a belt, pop of color or print that is positioned at the waist.
Above all look for styles that offer comfort, support and coverage where needed. There are also special features available like tummy control, underwire and strategically placed slimming details that create somewhat of an optical illusion for the body. If you are looking for the perfect two piece try sites likehttp://www.swimsuitsforall.com/ andhttp://www.forever21.com/ that allow you to purchase separates to better customize the fit of your suit.
Remember… Be bold and never basic! Listen to the little voice inside you that reminds you how fabulous you are. Be confident! Take a chase and step outside your comfort zone. Don’t allow the limited minds of others to confine you to what you should or shouldn’t wear. Trust your own instincts and dress the body you have until you decide to change it. Have a #fatgirlfabulous summer!
