Yes, You CAN Rock A Swimsuit!
Imagine wearing a swimsuit that is so comfortable, you don’t even think about the fact that you’re wearing one! Imagine the freedom of engaging in all the water activities you love, without worrying about what your swimsuit is going to do next. With the right fit, colour, cut and coverage for your body type, this is all possible!
Central to pulling off a good look in a swimsuit is confidence. Of course, showing skin is difficult, and for many women swimsuits pose a particular form of intimidation, but try to look past that when you try something on in the store, and go for something comfortable and flattering.
It’s about the person who wears it.
Although you might be in the habit of dressing chicly, looking good is a lot more difficult when you are only wearing a small piece of material! Before you brave the stores, try to analyse your body type. Being over- or underweight doesn’t matter – it’s dressing for the body you have.
There is no shortage of appropriate swimsuits for women on the market, but before you can buy the right kind, you will need to discover, accept, and make peace with the body you have. Once you know what you are working with, you will be able to set goals for how you would like to look in your suit.
You should also be clear on WHY you are buying a particular swimsuit. Are you an athlete? In that case, you will need a high-performance material that is resistant to multiple training sessions in chlorine. If you’re not much of a swimmer but need something pretty to wear while sunbathing on the beach, you can get away with more embellishments and decorations on your swimsuit, as you will not need to worry about performance.
Dealing with problem areas
If you are self-conscious about your tummy, go for a swimsuit with distracting detail, like a ruched front of cut-out shapes. Opt for something with extra support if you would like to ensure a bit of extra control.
A high-cut pair of briefs is the ideal way to reshape your bottom. Steer clear of shorts if you want to make your bum appear smaller!
What about the top and the legs?
Swimsuit tops should always fit snugly and securely. This will help to prevent embarrassing mishaps where a too-large top might end up having you showing far more skin than you had bargained on!
Long, lean legs create a streamlined look. Boost the appearance of your legs by flaunting them in a high cut style, to create the illusion of legs that go on for ever! Consider a pair of tummy-shaping bottoms to keep any flabbiness at bay! Of course, as always, dark colours will go a long way in creating a minimised appearance and help you look lean.
