Best Bathing Suits For Your Body Type..

People shop for a bathing suit with more care than they do a husband or wife. The rules are the same. Look for something you'll feel comfortable wearing. Allow for room to grow...

I don't know about you, but let me tell you as far finding the most figure-flattering bathing suit possible-- and all the trial and error that entails-- is one of my least favorite summer rituals.  I love the shopping part what I don't enjoy is not being able to find the right suit no matter how much I look.  There is always something that's just not right.  Either the top is too little...the bottom too big or vice-versa.  Then comes the fact that it's either too skimpy (according to Arvid).  As far as he is concerned I should wear a tee-shirt and shorts.  I try to meet somewhere in the middle.  Here though is some great advise from experts as to how to solve this dilemma...For instance, we all know that black is slimming, but if you have a pale skin tone, black won’t necessarily flatter. Your best bet is to choose a variety of colors that flatter your skin tone.

Everyone has aspects of their body they like less than others-- even supermodels. The key here is balance and knowing how to fool the eye. Higher cut bottoms elongate legs. Ruffled tops add volume to small busts...Here are some great options below for each body type.

Pear Shape 

Look for suits with high-cut bottoms. You don't want to be cut off at your widest point. A top with a deep V will attract attention to your sexy upper body.

Tall and Thin

Toss out athletic-style tank suits and opt for frills and romantic detailing to give the illusion of a more shapely figure.

Apple Shape
Ruching is your best friend. A suit with side details like a tuxedo stripe or sequins will also make tummy bulges less apparent.

Big Bust
Shop for bathing suits as you would for a bra. Look for underwire or a thick-banded bikini. A supportive fit is key.

Small Bust
Say "no" to bandeau tops. Try a ring-top halter or a triangle cut with ruffle trim to add volume to your chest area.
Full Figure
Avoid anything with strings-- it won't have much support. Pick your best feature and accent it. If it's your decolletage, an embellished plunging V-neck will draw the attention upward.

Real women have curves, so choose your swimsuits like you would your clothes. Look for silhouettes that flatter your body. Think about your shape first, your size second - that way you’ll be drawn to suits that will accentuate your assets and downplay the rest. If you’re plus size, shop for swimwear like you would your shape wear. You may not want to cut corners - there's too much at stake....HAPPY SHOPPING!!!

Bathing suits are like T-bags...you never know how strong they are till you put them in water

until next time..
