Everyone seems to be waiting on summer’s friendly rays, but for some people, bathing suit season may mean agony in the dressing room. Your time in the dressing room shouldn’t be painful. Shopping for plus size swimwear in any size should be fun and easy when you take the time to do it right.
The first step is that you have to make note of your assets. Pick out your most appealing features and choose colors, shapes, and patterns to compliment them using some of the slimming tips mentioned below. Taking the time to understand exactly how we can use these shapes, colors and patterns in the swimwear to work to our advantage will help you create a slimmer look this summer.
Take a good look at your body shape in the mirror. If you’re uncomfortable with the way you look, don’t simply opt for the one-piece suit complete with sewn in skirt! Learn to dress your body type to maximize what you have.
For instance, pear-shaped bodies are those who are comparatively curvier on the bottom and more narrow in the middle. The pear-shaped body can most often get away with any two-piece bikini, but definitely needs more support up top. Be sure to choose a top with bra-like qualities to ensure you are adequately supported by the straps.
A triangle shaped body, one with a small chest and larger hips, will want to attract more attention to her top half to better balance her proportions. A push-up top will help set off the proportions as well as making great cleavage! An inverted triangle shaped body will want to attract more attention to her lower half. To do this, add a skirt or sarong to help better weigh down the bottom half.
The most difficult shape is that of the oval, small on top and bottom but larger in the middle. Have no fear, swimwear designers have long been making control-top one-piece bathing suits to help tuck everything that needs to be kept in place.
Dark colors are excellent at concealing areas that you would like to hide, whereas light colors and patterns do the exact opposite. If your bust is ample, but your stomach equally so, perhaps a light top and dark midsection would be the perfect match for your body shape.
Still feeling uncomfortable? A sheer robe as a cover-up can help quell fears and cover skin. Amazing heels will help lengthen legs and make them appear more shapely but if you will be walking in the sand, heels are not advisable. But of course, confidence is the most alluring asset of all.
If you want to better flaunt your assets, you should opt for brighter colors. On the other hand, if you want to draw attention away from a particular body part, then you should choose a dark solid color. As for skin tone, women with pale skin would do well with swimsuits with darker hues like navy, maroon and dark purple whilst women with darker skin tones should opt for swimwear with light colors.
Another thing that you should consider before buying plus size swimwear is which cut you should settle on. If it is your desire to divert attention away from your waist, then opt for a one-piece swimsuit. But should you like to attract attention to it, you may buy a tankini. Boy shorts can create an hourglass body shape effect so women with large busts may use it to make their hips look broader. On the other hand, women with short legs or long torsos will look best in high-cut bikinis because they make the legs appear longer. If you want to move the attention to your bust, halter and tie-front bikini tops are effective. Bandeau tops can make the bust look wider and are therefore perfect for women with pear body shape.
Trends come and go, but determining the right plus size swimwear in terms of body type, color and cut can help you stand out during the summer season.
A good tan may be the most important part of finishing off your look. This tan does not have to be real, it can a spray tan by one of the many products available on the market. Never jeopardize your health for swimsuit season and be sure to wear sunscreen when under the suns harmful rays for an extended period of time. Above all else, have fun with your look and enjoy the summer season!
