The official start of Spring typically also marks the beginning of the beach wear season as well. Between Spring Breaks, Memorial Day and the anticipation of summer vacation and weekends spent at the beach - women across the country begin the search for the perfect bikinis! We believe that no matter what your size or body type, there is a bikini out there for you!
Smaller Bust Line
Clean lines, no pinching and flowing. These are the key attributes you are looking for when buying two piece swimsuits. Believe it or not, it is much easier to buy a bikini and look good in it, if your bust line is smaller. You do not have to deal with the control or weight that comes with larger bust sizes.
To add the appearance of fullness to a smaller bust line, you can use padding that fits comfortably in the bottom of the breast cup. These pads will push your breasts up, and give an appearance of a fuller bust line. A ruffled top can add more volume. If you still feel uncomfortable, prints will also keep the eye busy and draw attention away from your bust line. Finally color-color is key-if you mix and match, a dark colored bottom and a bright colored top will give the appearance of clean lines and a sporty look.
Larger Bust Line
Who says bigger is always better? When it comes to finding the perfect clearance swimwear arger breasts can be public enemy #2! Bigger breasts are, of course - heavier. The heavier they are, the more support they will require. Look for bikini tops that feature a wide strap or underwire for support. Halter top styles are also a great way to control the support you'll need.
No Waist/Boy Shaped: The first thing you'll want to do is avoid solid colors and one piece suits. This will make you look square and boxy. Bikini's with embellishments or texture on the bottom are great. Look for suits with ruffled bottoms or bottoms with belted/banded waist lines. Adding this extra fabric at the hip will give the illusion of a curve in the waist.
Thick Strong Thighs
Who said that strong thick thighs were a problem? Swimsuits with high cut thighs were designed just for you. Don't kid yourself, you will likely look incredible in a high cut one piece or Brazilian style swimsuit. Again use colors to your advantage, dark on the bottom, bright on the top.
Plus Size Shape: Solid colors and one piece suits are going to work best for you. Muted colors and dark colors are most ideal. V-Necklines are great, primarily when then top is a halter style that types at the neck. Look for suits with adjustable lengths/ruching at the hip. Depending on your size and comfort levels - you may want to wear a two piece. If this is the case, follow the tips given for thicker thighs/full bottoms and larger chest ladies.
Last But Not Least-One Word- CONFIDENCE -Nothing is more beautiful and attracts more attention than confidence. Make sure that you purchase a swimsuit or bikini that you feel confident and comfortable wearing.
