3 Summer bathing suit tips

Buying a swimsuit that flatters, can be a time consuming task, but a must-have for summer and when on vacation. Buying that perfect swimsuit will give you the confidence needed to enjoy your time at the beach or by the pool.

Although bikini’s are a good choice in your teens and twenties, older women may feel more comfortable in a one piece. One piece bathers can be just as sexy and flattering as a bikini and all the more chic. Here are a few tips on how to select the best one piece for you.

Construction matters – For example, if you have a bigger bust, it is advisable to look for swimwear with a built in bra, wider straps and halter necks for added support. For those who have a tummy, choose swimwear with control panels with a higher percentage of lycra. Seamless bathers, will provide for better comfort and a smoother silhouette.

Figure-flattering choices – For larger women it is best to choose dark colours. If you want to attract the eye to your bust or bum, choose one with a light/ bright hue in that area. An overall print, like polka dots or floral, can draw attention away in a subtle way.

Geometry lessons – Stripes that move vertically can lengthen a shorter silhouette. If you have a long torso, choose a horizontal design. For those with shorter waists, choose up down designs or mesh inserts.
