Summer is Around the Corner: How to Choose the Right Swimwear for Your Body
Thinking about your entire wardrobe, it becomes clear that swimwear may be among the most personal and revealing clothing that you put on your body. Each year as spring approaches, women all over the country start dreading the inevitable shopping trip to buy a new swimsuit, imagining all the horrors awaiting them in the three-way mirror.
Most women focus on the things they don't like about their figures. Looking at the negatives can make shopping for your swimsuit a miserable experience. Instead, suggest fashion experts, look on the bright side. Consider the things you like about your figure and shop for a suit that makes the most of them. If you've got great legs, for example, choose swimwear with high-cut hips that make your legs look longer and shapelier. A one-piece maillot with cutout sides will play up that curvy waist-to-hip ratio, while a bandeau bikini will minimize your chest and play up your hips and legs.
Aside from the general admonition to accentuate the positive when you're looking at swimsuits and bikinis, there are other more specific tips that can help you choose the best swimwear for your body type.
* Get a good fit. A too-tight swimsuit will add bulges where they don't exist by compressing flesh and cutting into your body at awkward spots. A bathing suit that's too big can be just as bad. Loose bottoms will lead to a saggy butt that makes you look like you're wearing a diaper, while an oversize bikini top won't offer your girls the support they need to look their best.
* Choose your swimwear tops and bikinis separately so that you can get the perfect fit for each part of your body. When you mix and match, you can also play off styles so that each part of your swimsuit flatters your body. Team up boy short bottoms with a bikini top to show off your cleavage while camouflaging your bottom, or match up a tankini with bikinis to give yourself a little more coverage up top.
* Be careful that your attempt to cover up doesn't backfire by calling attention to the problem. Choosing bikini bottoms with a high waist to cover up a little tummy can make your whole body look blocky and stodgy. Instead, choose a one-piece with a splash of pattern or color to divert attention to your bust or waistline. No one will ever notice the tummy bulge.
* Choose a suit with some structure if you need support. New swimwear features extra spandex to pull in your tummy and pick up your butt. Swimsuit tops with pads, underwires and halters can give your bust the lift it needs to look spectacular.
Shopping for a swimsuit doesn't have to be horrible. Just concentrate on the positives and be clever about the way you cover up those things you don't like.
