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.
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.
