Bikinis, one-piece suits, cut-out monokinis, tankinis, swim dresses, jumpsuits… There are so many choices of swimwear available today! Here are some tips on how to choose the most flattering piece.
Look for colours that suit your skin tone. For fair complexion choose warm colours: yellow, gold, orange, peach, warm pink and brown. They enhance the warm tones of your skin and make you appear more tanned. Classic black is also a great choice. If you have darker skin, go for bright colours, white or pastels. Monochrome prints look great on any skin tone.
As a rule, dark colours make your body look slimmer. However, you should avoid wearing solid black or dark coloured one-piece if you don’t want to draw attention to you uncovered legs and thighs. Instead, go for dark swimsuits with contrasting prints or embellishments.
Prints can help create optical illusions to influence perception of you figure. Vertical lines have slimming effect and visually elongate your body. Horizontal elements can enhance and widen certain body parts. Busy high contrast prints are a great way to camouflage imperfections.
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. 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 designed for confident ladies who are not afraid to show off their bodies. 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 the hip area. High cut bottom will make your legs look longer, while low rise hipster pants will emphasise your waist.
One-piece swimsuit is not just for mature or plus-sized ladies – it is a must have item for every woman. It is very flattering and provides more sun protection than skimpy bikinis. One-piece suit is great for champagne pool-side parties as well as for the beach. Many 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 a bikini where two pieces are connected together. 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!
