We’ve waded through winter, splashed through spring, and now it’s time to swim into summer. Swimsuit Season is fast approaching, and while it can be a great time to soak in the sun, too many women stress over putting on a suit and heading into the water. Whether you plan to dive in, or just relax in the sand, finding the right bathing suit for you can ease your fears and make you fabulously fashionable. No matter what shape or size, every woman can feel absolutely amazing with a flattering swimsuit that accentuates the right areas.
One of the latest trends in swimwear is the retro style, popular among many celebrities and fashion A-listers. The identifying feature of this style is the high waist design, and it can work as either an old fashioned bikini or as a one piece, like Chamela's striped and flower retro bathing suit offered at Yallure. The waist is accentuated by a solid band that highlights and shapes your figure. Adding ruffles to the top of the suit draws the eyes up, and try to avoid shorts and skirts, as they can make your legs seem shorter.
Just about any type of swimwear works, so you have your choice of the floor. Triangle tops were designed with you in mind, so go for it! If you’re looking to add more volume, try anything with ruffles, padding, or horizontal stripes. Any top that draws attention to your shoulders is ideal.
If you’ve been blessed with a chest, you’ll want to find a bathing suit top that offers support and style. A swimsuit like the Halter Style Tankini by Chamela offers full support and control, without sacrificing quality or design.
Hips, Thighs, and the Other Side
Minimizing these “problem areas” (and they’re called that cause EVERY woman deal with it) is all about proportions. Balance out your top with a blousy one piece, like the digital printed tropical style offered by Yallure. Still feeling exposed? Opt for a pretty skirt or sexy boy short cut bottom. Side details can gave the illusion of smaller hips as well, so pieces with hardware rings or designs suit you well.
Beachwear doesn’t have to be all about the bikini. The one-piece bathing suit is making a comeback, and recent styles are sexier than ever. If you are less inclined to expose your midriff, seek out vertical stripes to elongate your torso, and opt for a tankini design or a tummy control swimsuit. Stand out by picking a suit with a unique pattern or neckline.
No matter what body shape or size you have, there’s a design to fit you perfectly and express your inner goddess. One important tip to remember is that you have to feel comfortable in your swimsuit, as you’re going to be spending some time in it. Make sure it brings out your features and lets “you” shine. With all the colors and designs on the market, let your swimsuit make you look as hot as the season feels!
