It’s okay to admit that you don’t have a supermodel figure. Similarly, it’s okay to admit that you are no longer a 16-year old girl. You can look fantastic by choosing trends that fit your style and make you comfortable. Additionally, you do not have to sit on the beach in a smock after you turn 30, and you do not have to follow strict rules. Focus on swimsuits that accentuate your best assets instead of swimsuits that hide the less flattering parts of your body.
Color Blocking Works With Every Figure
Choose different sporty styles that have large blocks of colors and bold lines. Many women have a naturally slim body and want to draw a little extra attention to their best features. On a related note, many women that are not super slim want to draw extra attention to the right places. Instead of hiding under an umbrella, wear a tank suit with bold color blocks and stripes. After all, who doesn’t want to add shape without adding bulk?
Flatter a Small Bust
Go retro to choose what you want to show off. Choose a one-piece suit with higher cut bottoms to elongate legs, and choose a great color to go with it. Embrace different vintage patterns and detailing to draw attention to your swimsuit and your best features. Retro styles are flirty, feminine, and diverse. Don’t forget to choose a color that makes your hair and face pop.
Keep a Large Bust Under Control
No woman wants to lose half of her swimsuit in the pool or accidentally flash throngs of unsuspecting sunbathers. It’s the kind of things nightmares are made of. Get a suit with a solid bra, and choose bold prints to make it more modern. Hawaiian and island prints are a great way to turn a matronly look into a fun one, and they are popular this season. Bright prints with fuchsias, pinks, and purples look good on almost any skin tone, and a bikini might be the way to go.
Big and Beautiful
Plus-size swimwear does not have to be depressing. Get away from traditional black, and choose chic shades of gray. Opt for a tank that has an overlay. Tie the overlay up or down, and feel confident. Show off curves with a plunging neckline, and be ready to turn heads in all the right ways. It’s important to find the shade of gray that looks best with your natural skin tone and does not wash you out.
Should You Go for the Bikini?
There is a bikini out there that can help balance different proportions for different body types. A bikini can help boost a small bust or draw attention away from larger bottoms. Women with pear-shaped bodies can choose to pair a detailed top with a plain bottom to draw attention upward. Similarly, women with A-line bodies can choose a bikini that fits well and does not overpower fine features.
The Biggest Swimwear Fashion Mistake
With few exceptions, the biggest mistake women can make is to hide under an umbrella in a large black suit. Follow the latest summer fashion trends to find the swimsuit that makes you look and feel great about your body, and look forward to swimsuit season.
