Swimsuit styles for your body type.
If you are anything like me, then you love the changing seasons of New Jersey. When winter first rolls around, snow flurries and icicles can be exciting. However, snow shoveling and bitter winter mornings get old quickly and by the time March arrives, we are over it! Bundling up in a coat, scarf and gloves will be a chore no more; get ready to strip down and strut on the beach because Spring Break is here!
For many, Spring Break is an escape – the perfect excuse to take a hiatus from the cold and enjoy a hot vacation lounging on the beach in a fabulous bathing suit. There’s just one problem: finding the perfect swimsuit. We are all too familiar with the stress of shopping for bikinis, tankinis or a one piece. Today, we are provided so many different styles of swimwear, which is both good and bad. It’s challenging to decide what best suits your body type. Read on for the do’s and don’ts of swimsuit shopping and get ready to soak up the sun in style.
You are curvy in both the hips and thighs, but your upper half is small. For a visual, think Jenifer Lopez or Jenifer Love Hewitt. Look for a swimsuit that provides balance. Your proportions are your assets; a great fit will cinch at your high waistline, showing off and enhancing your curves. If you are concerned about your bottom half, go for a simple skirt bottom, circa 1950s. It is best to avoid anything that is a boy short or thick-banded bottom. A deep neckline is also super flattering and flirty because it attracts the eye upward.
Jenifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz are prime examples of the athletic body. Your shape is a little more straight than curvy, so it’s important to purchase a swimsuit that creates the curves! To give this illusion, look for a top or bottom with ruffles. Ruffles add texture and give volume, even if it is subtle. Additionally, big embellishments or bold prints work wonders for your figure. If you are a one-piece gal, a monokini is the ideal suit for you. Cut outs in the right places (hips, waist, neckline) are curve magnets.
Curves All Around
Think Scarlett Johansen. For coverage, be sure to highlight and accentuate your curves. In no way are you restricted to a one-piece, in fact, bikinis can be most flattering! It is all about the cut and print. Color blocking is always a good idea when creating a bold look. Also, a high waist cut is extremely flattering as well as a sweetheart neckline. Mix and match cuts and colors to heighten every inch.
