Choosing the Best Bathing Suit for You

Choosing the right bathing suit for your shape can be a tricky business. While it’s always advisable to choose outfits which flatter your shape, it’s never more crucial to get this right than it is when it comes to swim wear. It’s the one outfit you will wear outdoors which shows your body, and it’s important to feel comfortable.

Consider your body shape and be honest with yourself about the type of bathing suit you feel most comfortable with.

Bikinis can look great and if you’re young and confident you probably wouldn’t think twice about wearing one. But Bikinis aren’t only for the young. If you are confident in your body and still love wearing them, there’s no reason to give up the bikini just because you’re over forty.

However, whatever age you are, there are some important points to remember when choosing a bikini. Think about the areas of your body you feel most confident with and choose a bikini accordingly.  If you know you have a great bottom, bikini briefs will help you show it off.  If you aren’t that comfortable showing your behind, bikinis with shorts are perfect for covering up those areas you aren’t so happy about. If you are curvy, but don’t like showing your stomach,  bikini shorts are also good for covering your stomach while still allowing you to make the most of your breasts with a bikini top.  For a fuller-busted lady,  a more structured bikini top is a good idea. Bikini tops are available with wires, padding and even gel-filled, for the maximum in support.

Unless you are a size small all over, go for separates when buying bikinis.  Few women are the same dress size on their top half as they are on their bottom, so buying a bikini off the peg as a set rarely gives a good fit. Always try swim wear on before you buy. A good fitting bikini, especially the bra  half, will exude confidence.
