Temperatures are heating up and you know what that means ladies? More pool time! Pools, although refreshing and fun can be intimidating for most women who are uncomfortable showing off their bodies in a bathing suit, but that’s all going to change!
First of all, I hope every lovely lady out there knows that no matter what shape you are, that you are without a doubt BEAUTIFUL! The female form, whether curvy or thin, is a magnificent creation and should never be looked at or treated as anything other than that! The secret is knowing what clothes and in this case, swimsuits, compliment your body type the best. You’d be surprised at how big of a difference you can see and feel by simply changing the cut or size of your suit!
- For Bigger Busts: Try to go for a bathing suit brand that allows you to choose your top by bra size, this way you can make sure you find a top that you know will fit! Also, underwire and straps that are wide and sturdy will keep the girls where you want them! I would also lean towards a halter shaped suit, this raises your top up and gives you more support.
- For Bigger Bottoms: If you have a bigger booty, don’t fret, it’s a good thing! For my more modest women out there the skirt bottom is always an easy go to that you can feel comfortable in, but you can also choose bottoms that are a bit more high-cut this lengthens your legs and lifts your bottom instead of widening it. Don’t forget just because you may be pear shaped, doesn’t mean that’s all anyone sees; If you choose a bandeau style top it will help to balance out your entire figure!
- For Smaller Tops: If you aren’t to curvy, there are a ton of easy fixes. Most bathing suits come with padding that can help enhance and enlarge the look of your chest. You can also choose bandeau tops and tops with cups built in. Another tip is to choose tops with embellishments like ruffles, this can add attention to your top, but instead of seeing a smaller chest, people will see your cute swimsuit!
- For Bigger Bellies: There is no need to put your belly out there if it’s not in a shape that you are happy with, so when trying to slim down your look and conceal your torso try tankinis, but make sure the top is long enough and a big enough size or you can create a dreaded muffin-top look. Rouging, chevron stripes, and retro style bottoms also can all help help hide your tummy!
