Choosing Fabulous Swimwear

Winter is a distant memory and spring has awakened you to the fact that summer is quickly approaching. Since summertime is swimsuit season, now is the perfect time to begin your hunt for the perfect swimwear. It does not matter if you are a woman or a man, there are fabulous choices in swimwear for everyone and all you need to do is pick the swimsuit that suits you best.

Women know they want style in their swimsuits, but that it also comes through proper fit and cut. The following are suggestions on styles based on body shape. Maybe you can discover the best swimsuit options for your body.

  • Large Stomach. The two-piece tankini is a great option to disguise a large tummy. If you select a one-piece, get one with built-in tummy control and either draping or pattern, which will help to further conceal your actual size.
  • Small Bust. Add size to your bust with a bikini top that may have light padding or an underwire for shaping support. Triangle-shaped tops are known to give the impression of a fuller bust line. Select a top that has either a tie-front or adjustable straps to help ensure a proper fit.
  • Long Torso. If you have a long torso, finding a swimsuit that fits can be a true task and fit is definitely a priority for you. Whether choosing a one-piece or two-piece style suit, a high-cut leg is a great choice to help elongate your legs. One-piece suits should be embellished with some sort of cut-out or accent design to add dimension to the long plain line of the body.
  • No Waist. Both one-piece and two-piece swimsuits are right up your alley. High-cut hips are great for creating the illusion of longer legs. Also, accents that give the look of a nipped-in waistline will add splendid curves to your body.
  • Plus Size. A one-piece suit will work wonders for you when chosen in a darker color for a slimming effect. However, add pizzazz to your look with swirling-type patterns, deep necklines, or fancy cut-out designs. Big is beautiful, so select a suit style that compliments all that you have been given. Avoid suits with too much fabric because they will only appear to add to your overall size, and nobody makes that their goal.
  • Pregnant. Some women are afraid to put on a swimsuit in the full bloom of pregnancy. There are suits made specifically for maternity wear. Go for a one-piece or tankini that has the built-in straps to allow you to adjust the waistline, as well as the shoulders, to give you greater support.

Men, you have not been forgotten, and you should be pleased to know that you also have choices in swimwear. These days the trunk and board shorts are the most popular with the average male, but for the more active swimmer the fitted brief-style and bikini are equally popular, with Speedo remaining a prominent brand name. Choose a suit that fits your aquatic lifestyle. Focus on the style, fabric, and water durability. If you like to jump around in the water or hop on a boogie board, then longer swim trunks may be your preference. While active swimmers who are concerned with making time on their laps, may find the fitted swimsuits a better option because there is no extra fabric weighing you down in the water. You can express yourselves beyond cut and fit by adding style with color and pattern, such as Hawaiian floral or block print.

Every year before the swimming season begins, try on your suit for fit, wear and tear. Chlorine is harsh on swimsuit fabric and eventually breaks down its overall elasticity. If it gives more room where it should not, it is time for a fabulous new swimsuit.
