A bathing suit is an essential part of every woman’s wardrobe. It is the go-to item for destination weddings (and honeymoons), summer vacations, out of the cold winter getaways, and more. However, choosing the right bathing suit is a feat for most of us. Women’s bodies come in different shapes and sizes, with small tops and big bottoms, big tops and small bottoms, muffin tops, belly pouches, plump thighs, etc, etc.
We can all find something that’s wrong with our bodies. But, selecting the right bathing suit– regardless of your body type– can enhance your not-so-flattering minor imperfections. And, most importantly, it can give your beachwear a makeover. The first step to getting your swimsuit is finding one that is chic and trendy. A designer swimsuit store is the first place you should look.
So the question on many readers’ minds is, “how do I pair the right bathing suit with the right body”? These are some of our helpful tips:
For muffin tops – try going with a shirred bottom at the waistline. These bottoms do not cut into the skin but sit gently at the waist, visibly decreasing or eliminating the muffin top issue. Designers such as Vix and Sabz offer this trend.
For belly pouches – try going with a monokini that covers the belly button area. That way you can still be sexy while diffusing attention on the pouch. Another option is to go with a two piece with a high-waisted bottom. Our new designer, Marysia Swimwear, specializes in designer high-waisted swimsuits. Or you can check out this one from Agua Bendita.
For plump thighs – there is really no bathing suit that covers this, so we suggest trying a swimsuit cover-up that is knee-length. We have a wide assortment of cover-up dresses that can be worn for day or night.
For big tops, small bottoms (or vice versa) – try going with a two-piece bathing suit that is sold as separates, meaning you can purchase a different size for top and bottom. Designers such as Lady Lux Swimwear, Vix, and OndadeMar all offer these items.
