Temperature is rising and summer is approaching fast. The beach season is just around the corner, so it’s time to start shopping for swimwear!
Summer 2009-2010 is all about bright colours! Bold floral designs, animal prints, tribal art inspired prints, geometrical ornaments, black-and-whites are absolutely hot this season!
So, what colour would you choose?
Look for colours that suit your skin tone. If you have fair skin, you should choose warm colours, such as yellow, gold, orange, peach and brown. They enhance worm shades of your skin and make you appear more tanned. If you have darker skin tone, any bright colour will look great on you.
As you know, dark colours make your body look slimmer. However, many women trying to achieve this result make mistake to wear swimsuits in plain dark colour. In fact, it does the opposite, drawing attention to uncovered legs and thighs. Instead, choose swimwear with bold, contrast elements, like prints or embroideries, on dark background.
What style is best for you?
Bikinis are always hot! They are sexy, comfortable and versatile. There are many different styles of bikini available these days.
The most popular style is a triangular cup bikini. It suits most women with A to D cup whose breasts don’t require much support. If you want some extra volume and shape, choose bikini with padded cups. Rounder shape cups are also good for women with smaller bust.
Bandeau bikini is another option for women with smaller breast size. Bandeau is literally a band of cloth worn around the chest. This style is very trendy this season. Bandeau tops can be with or without straps. When choosing a bandeau bikini, look for tops with supportive boning at sides.
If you have large breasts requiring more support and coverage, halter top with underwired cups is ideal for you. Halter is also perfect for active women as it will stay in place when you move.
G-String bikinis (also known as thong bikinis) are the most revealing swimwear. They are extremely sexy and designed for confident ladies who are not afraid to show off their assets. They are a perfect option for those who love to tan.
There is a wide variety of other bikini bottom styles available on the market: briefs, shorts, hipster pants, Brazilian cut pants, etc. It is important to choose the style that suits your body shape. Bikini brief with thin side straps will make your hips look smaller. Boy shorts, on the other hand, will add some curves to hip area. High cut bottom will make your legs look longer, while low rise hipster pants will emphasis your waist.
Classic one-piece swimsuit is another hot trend for this summer. It has the benefit of providing more coverage from the sun and giving you a flawless silhouette.
Contrary to the popular belief, one-piece swimsuit is not just for mature or plus-sized ladies. With all major swimwear designers offering one-piece in their collection this season, it is a must have item for every woman. One-piece suit is more ‘formal’ than bikini and is great for pool parties as well as for the beach.
Many modern one-piece swimsuits provide hidden breast support, like built-in moulded cups or underwires.
Monokini – is a one-piece swimsuit with cut-out sides. Or it can be seen as a bikini where two pieces are connected together by a strip of fabric.
Monokini is the most seductive swimwear! The design accentuates your best parts by keeping some areas covered, leaving more to imagination. Cut out sides create an illusion of perfect hourglass figure by making the waist line appear thinner.
Monokini is more than just a swimwear, it’s a fashion statement. You are sure to be the centre of attention at the beach if you wear one.
With so many styles and designs of swimsuits available these days, we hope it will be an easy task for you to find the perfect one. Enjoy your shopping and good luck!
