The Summer Swim Guide
May 20, 2016
What is the biggest mistake people make when shopping for swimsuits?Assuming that a larger size will fit better. Most of the time, when people opt for a larger size, there ends up being too much fabric causing sag in the butt area (especially after getting out of the water).
How can you figure out your size if you’re shopping online?All bikini sizes for different companies tend to run differently. Check the size chart that is specific to their brand. If you are unsure, buy both sizes and try them on in the comfort of your home.
The most flattering styles for your body type…
Curvy: High-rise bottoms and color blocked suits that help to highlight your shape.
Small Bust: Suits with embellishments and ruffles help to create the illusion of curves. Suits that tie around the neck help to give an extra lift.
Large Bust: A suit with adjustable and thick straps to provide extra support. Bikini tops with cups and underwires.
Petite: Suits that have adjustable features to fit perfectly to your body. Plunging necklines and low-rise bottoms help create the illusion of an elongated torso.
Fitting room light is always the worst. What are your tips for trying on swimsuits so we don’t get discouraged?Exfoliate, apply self-tanner and lotion really well before going to try on swim. It will make the experience much easier when you were not pale and ashy. Know your body and go with a shape in mind, don’t let trying on bikinis ruin your day.
What are your care tips for swimsuits?Hand wash in cold water and hang in the shade after every use. To prevent color fading from chlorine and salt water, rinse as soon as you can after wearing.
