The Perfect Swimsuit For You

By Jackie Silver

Shopping for and buying a swimsuit or bikini can be one of the worst, most depressing experiences for women. Contrary to what fashion magazines would suggest, not all women wear size four clothing and can easily slip into a sexy, thong bikini.

They are often lined with a fabric that prevents them from becoming transparent when wet. Some of the main trends include fun prints, 50s-inspired (including one-piece suits) and bright colors (Ashlee Simpson was recently spotted poolside wearing a bright yellow bikini).

For these women, each successive visit to the dressing room in the endless search for the perfect, wonderfully fitted swimsuit, is a further reminder of how far their bodies are from model perfect.

Half coverage to the fanny include the mens and womens Rio swimsuits. Three quarters coverage to the fanny include the mens and womens bikini bathing suits.

All women, regardless of size or figure, can be properly flattered and displayed in the right swimsuit. As you enter the summer season, keep these figure guidelines in mind while shopping for the perfect swimsuit for you.

If you fear you have no shape to accentuate in a swimsuit at all, you may have a boy shape. To gain more Marilyn Monroe style curviness, try a one-piece swimsuit with a low, plunging neckline. The top of the suit should gather to add shape and curve to the bust and shoulders.

To emphasize curves in the hips, try a high-cut leg that sits just above the hipbone. This type of cut will make the legs seem longer and curvier. However, if you would like to embrace your boy shape, try pairing triangle-shaped bikini cups with short boy shorts.

Boy shorts are incredibly popular but look attractive on only a small percentage of women; women with boy shapes make up the majority of this small percentage.

While swimsuit shopping may seem too depressing and panic-inducing to even attempt, you should not sacrifice your summer fun for fear of the dreaded experience. Just remember that every woman, regardless of size and shape, has aperfect swimsuit laying in wait for her. All she need do is know where and what to look for.

Swimming in a chlorinated swimming pool is effectively equivalent to soaking your swimsuit in bleach for a couple of hours. Needless to say, this is hardly a practice that encourages the durability and color-fastness of your swimsuit. - 16651
