Hey Dolls! It's me again! This week I'll be talking about swimsuits! Eeekkkk!!
Summer is getting closer by the day! We need to prepare now for the perfect suit to fit our bods and make us feel AMAZING!
Are you guys ready? Let's get started!
While I was perusing the internet for today's blog post, I came across this on fashionising.com. This is great information for trying to find the right swimsuit for your figure. Check it out.
On-trend swimwear for your figure type
The reality is that when it comes to swimwear, not every cut is going to flatter every figure. But between all of the trending 2014/2015 styles there’s certainly something for everyone. It will certainly always come down to what you’re most comfortable with, but if you’re after a starting point here are some shape-based suggestions:
Embrace the vintage trend and use it to accentuate rather than try and hide your curves. Try halternecks or cupped styles, and anything that brings in the waist to play to an hourglass shape.
Pear shape / small bust
Use ruffles to your advantage by adding volume at the top half. Ruffles around the bust can make it seem visually larger. You can also use vintage cupped styles with padding to create curves.
Use ruffles to your advantage by conversely adding them to the bottom to balance your hips with your bust. Avoid unstructured crochets or string bikinis if they don’t offer any support; instead stick to strucutred styles and halternecks.
To lengthen the body pair a printed bikini top with a block-coloured bottom, drawing the attention upwards. Avoid boy-legs and go for high cut thighs instead so as to not shorten the legs further.
If you’re not big on the curves make the most of styles like statement strapping, backless styles and crochet that instead show off a toned physique.
