Searching for excitement in a sunny destination? Instead of packing resort-wear, are you thinking more about how to cover up then uncover? It’s not surprising since the average woman would rather get dental work than go bathing suit shopping. A woman’s top concerns when she looks for a bathing suit are –ample coverage in the bust, a slimmer tummy, troubled thighs and lack of curves. Turn heads by following these tips:
Large Busted Ladies: Women will be pleasantly surprised at this season’s variety. Look for tops that have underwire support, no padding and thicker straps. Also consider higher necklines to hide any spilling décolletage. If you are looking to minimize go for solid colours and avoid this season’s busy prints and 3-D effects such as ruffles, sequins and rhinestones.
Minimizing Midsection: Because you’ve skipped the gym, relax! Minimize with built-in tummy control and ruching along the waistline. Contrasting non-matching suits are trendy and flattering as they draw your eye upward. A two-piece tankini with a wrap top are also great for providing waist definition. And let’s not forget this season’s hottest trend – the belt! Cinch the waist to accentuate curves.
Minimize Thighs: Try a skirted suit or cover-up and an eye-catching coral, cobalt or citrus bikini top. Emphasizing the upper body with bold colour or a big statement necklace or earrings is the best way to minimize attention to the troubled area.
Creating Curves: If you are long and lean and lack curves try a monokini in a sexy black and white or python print to match the season’s runways. You will have all the cabana boys calling you their goddess.
No matter what your shape or size, fit is paramount because bathing suits stretch. Buy the right size or you may end up with sagging or an unsightly bulge. Embrace your curves with this season’s vibrant colours and pattern trends. Be confident and walk proud!
