Summer is just around the corner, and you know what that means! Yep, it’s swimming, sun and fun season. This is the season you get to kick back and relax at the beach or swimming pool. It’s also the season that allows you to show off your bodily package – with a swimsuit.
And, if you’ve lost weight, this time of the year is even more enjoyable. After all, you get to go shopping for that perfect swimsuit that allows you to accentuate the bodily features you only thought you’d attain.
5 Tips To Help You Find Your Perfect Bathing Suit
When people are buying their swimsuits, they base their decision on three things:
· How does the swimsuit make me look?
· Do I look good in the bathing suit?
· What kind of tan lines will I get?
However, it’s much more than that. Here are some helpful tips to assist you:
1 – Learn What Your Body Type Is
The shape of your body – how your body naturally distributes weight – will dictate what swimsuit will suit you best. Get your swimsuit size by measuring the bust at their fullest point, the waist at the littlest point and the hips at their widest point.
2 – Make Preparations For Your Swimsuit Shopping Excursion
Before you go shopping, shave the areas of hair you don’t want showing while in the suit. And, make sure you’re wearing underwear when trying them on.
3 – Swimsuit Store
Go to a store that specializes in swimsuits, if you need some special help. You can also go to a department store if you’re not that picky. Online shopping should only be done when you know what you can wear.
4 – Pick An Appearance-Flatting Swimsuit
When picking your swimsuit, choose colors and designs that highlight your features and don’t draw out the negative aspects of your body. By doing this, you’ll feel comfortable and look your best.
5 – Choose A Suit Based On Reason Of Use
When buying a swimsuit, keep in mind what you’ll be using it for. You don’t want to buy a swimsuit that’s not activity-appropriate.
What Type Of Swimsuit Should You Get
Now that you know how to choose a swimsuit, it’s time you pick the perfect one. This can be a little problematic, as there are all kinds of swimsuits out there.
The choices are numerous, and it can be a daunting task to find one that’s perfect for you and your body type whether it’s curvy, athletic, petite, short-torso, long-legs, etc.
One Piece – Many people avoid one-pieces because they’re worried they’ll look fat in them or they may look younger than they are or are pale-looking. Here’s one thing to remember: one-pieces looks good on all body types and can tan the right places if you purchase the right ones.
Strapless – Strapless bathing suits are ideal for the no tan lines, tan lines look, and can be worn with any top of top. The only key drawback is when they fall down, droop or have no shape.
Halter – This swimsuit top can accentuate your chest and doesn’t have the “back straps” people often dread. One of the best things about the halter top is that it goes with every body type.
Bandeau – This swimsuit is the top section of a two-piece swimsuit that’s worn simply around the woman’s breasts. It can be fastened at the back or front or may have elastic with no fastener to it. The strapless bandeaus can be worn casually.
Bikini – This two-piece swimsuit is simple in design: two pieces of fabric that cover the breasts along with two pieces of fabric to cover the bottom area – groin and butt. The area exposed is the mid-section.
If you want tan lines, avoid the tankini and boy-shorts swimsuits.
