Oh No It’s Swimwear Season!
Its summer and everyone wants to hit the beach or the pool, but for many of us choosing the right swimwear can be a daunting task, do you go with the two-piece or the one piece, do you actually plan to go swimming or just splash around, what is going to be comfortable, and so on. Not every swimsuit is going to flatter everyone, but with so many styles to choose from the right suit is out there and waiting for you! Of course, it’s all in what you are comfortable with and to help get you started here are a few suggestions:
For the fuller figure, look for swimwear that highlights your curves. Halters, cup styles and those styles that bring in the waist are always a good place to start.
The use of ruffles to the top half, creating more volume is a great trick for pear shapes with a small bust. In addition, cupped styles and padding will assist in creating the look of curves.
Ruffles added to the bottom are good for top heavy figures, doing so gives balance to the hips with your bust. You will however want to avoid any swimwear that doesn’t offer support, and stay with more structured styles and halters.
Looking to lengthen your body? If you are into the two-piece style try pairing a printed top with a colored bottom. This will bring attention upwards. Another idea suitable for both two-piece and one piece styles is swimwear with high cut thighs.
Want to show off your toned physique? Backless styles and crochet are for you and will definitely make the right statement.
The main thing to remember is to not be intimated when shopping for swimwear, we all have something we are dealing with and no one has the perfect body! And if you are unsure where to go, Broadway at the Beach has several retail shops ready to help you in finding your perfect swimsuit match; tooQt, Ron Jon Surf Shop, Tsunami Surf Shop and Tango Bay Clothing, just to name a few.
