It’s time for the big reveal. You’ve spent the last six months blissfully unaware of everything that was going on from the neck down, delivering your favorite foods to your mouth with a devil may care attitude, keeping the lights low in the bathroom, living in leisure and now the days of reckoning have come.
It’s summer and that means its time to come out of hiding. Time to don that bathing suit, and shed the baggies. But, have no fear. If you don’t feel up to snuff, there’s a bathing suit for that. Here are some bathing suits to suit every body type.
For a Slimmer Bottom
If you carry most of your weight in your derriere, you need to add a little extra oomph to your top. Look for simple bikini bottoms in solid colors paired with some molded cups on top for added volume and lift.
If you’re looking for a suit to add some curve to your figure, utilize design and pattern. A two piece with bold stripes and ruffles on top will add dimension to your bust and hips while showing off your lovely legs and flat stomach.
Ladies with hourglass shapes need a suit that will play up curves without overpowering your frame. You can wear a bikini with a bold floral print to add some color while letting your body take center stage.
Pear Shaped Body
Learn to love your lower half. Bikini bottoms tend to cut into your thighs and hips, making them bulge. Try a one piece with a V-neck or halter top and high cut bottoms. Suits with a little padding or detail on the top will help balance your figure. Patterns like slimming stripes or polka dots can work wonders.
Need an extra lift on top without the discomfort of underwire? Flatter your upper body with a full coverage top, with a supportive band beneath the bust and halter straps. You’ll feel confident and comfortable, without sacrificing style.
Petite women often have the extra challenge of finding something that fits them snugly. The solution? Adjustable bottoms. String bikinis allow you to cinch the sides so you can adjust accordingly. You’ll be surprised just how flattering these can be to your figure.
Vintage Suits with Coverage
Some situations are a win- win. The resurgence of the retro bathing suit means that you can be stylish while covering a little more area.
Try a one-piece with cut-outs or look for a bikini with a full sized bottom.
