finding the perfect swimsuit for your body type

Let’s not beat around the bush here – choosing the right swimsuit can be hard. Whether you’re heading on vacay or just gearing up for the warmer months, you may find this task a little tricky. The fact of the matter is that there is just so much choice out there and you may not know where to start! Sigh.

Luckily, we’re here for you! If you’re struggling to get started, you’ve come to the right place.

Here’s just about everything you need to know to help you find a swimsuit that not only looks wonderful, but also fits you perfectly in every way. What could be better than that?

Check out the latest trends

As with any clothing item, swimsuits go through trends from time to time. While the classic suit tends to stay the same, you may find that there are loads that you had no idea existed. Before you do anything at all, it could be worth checking out what the latest trends are and trying to decide which (if any!) you want to try out. You could look in magazines or online to help you get a brief clue of what’s out there.

Figure out the right size

Before you get shopping, you need to make sure that you know what size you are. High-end swimsuits will have bra sizes (just like your lingerie!) which means that you may already know what cup size you will need to get. You should also make sure that you are aware of your sister size and how that affects different styles of suit too.

When it comes to bikini bottoms or the rest of your suit, you will find that the sizes tend to be extra small, small, medium, large, or extra large. Be sure to get measured or try on some briefs in store so that you know what size you are before you order your dream suit. It could make all the difference when it comes to finding the right one for you.

List your swimsuit priorities

Think about it – what is it that you want from a swimsuit? You likely want to have a suit that’s comfortable, practical, and fashionable. That’s not too much to ask. However, different suits are fit for different purposes. For example, if you’re a pro swimmer, you may find that a sporty one-piece suit is right for you. On the other hand, if you plan on relaxing by the poolside and soaking up some sun, you may like a daring bikini number.

So long as you know what you want ahead of time, you should be able to find something that is right for you. It may be worth writing down what it is that you value in a swimsuit so that you know just what you’re looking for.

Avoid ‘fashion only’ suits

Be careful where you buy swimsuits. Many fashion brands sell pieces that may look good but are not practical at all. These suits are a waste of money and should be avoided at all costs. The last thing you want is to spend your hard-earned money on something that just will not do the job at all!

You can tell when something is a fashion suit quite easily. First of all, the material will be thin and low quality. Also, much of the time, the bra element of the suit will not have a cup size but a standard small, medium, or large size. Instead of opting for this choice, you need to go with a quality retailer who stock excellent suits.

Consider your body shape

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that different styles of suit will be right for different body shapes. For example, a retro design tends to flatter an hourglass figure, while full briefs and a bikini top tend to look best on pear-shaped ladies. No matter what your shape or size, you can be certain that there is a suit that will be ideal for you. Figure out what traditional ‘shape’ category you fall into, and take things from there.

Choose a gorgeous color or print

Remember, swimsuits are supposed to be a celebration of style and fitness in one neat package. That’s why you can afford to go a little wild here. Choose a swimsuit in a bold pattern or print that suits your sense of style. The point is that you get to explore all of the various options until you find something that is oh-so-you. Don’t shy away – choose something you love.  

Check out the details

Finally, you should remember to check out the finer details before choosing your suit. When you’re buying things online, each product will have a little description and some details about the material that is used. By reading up on these things before you click ‘buy,’ you can make 100% sure that you get the right suit for you. The more research you do and the more time you spend choosing the right piece, the better chance you have.

Now that you know what to do, what on earth are you waiting for? Start looking around to find the ideal swimsuit for you. You never know, a flattering, gorgeous piece may be just around the corner! Good luck.
