There are many factors one should understand when it comes to swimming clothes. They elevate the experience and help one feel comfortable while at the beach. One must select fashionable yet stretchy pieces that provide two benefits in one. This article provides tips on choosing the best type of swimsuit for a body type so that it looks great when worn at the beach or poolside during summertime. Here are a few factors to consider before purchasing.
Consider the size.
Swimsuits are made to fit certain body types and sizes, which means that no two women’s bodies will look exactly alike in their swimwear. Additionally, when it comes to size and fit, one woman’s “small” could be another woman’s “medium.”
The first step to finding the perfect suit is figuring out the exact measurements (or at least as close as possible). Bodies are ever-changing. One must understand and pick sizes that will complement their body for as long as possible and help them look their best.
One-piece or two-piece suit.
If one wants more coverage and modesty, a one-piece suit is the way to go. Two-pieces offer more skin exposure and are great for showing off the body, but understand that they have less support than a traditional suit. They can also be uncomfortable if one is not used to wearing them yet or if the chest is big enough that it causes the top part of the suit to dig into the back when it’s wetted down after swimming.
One option is an underwire bra-style top with adjustable straps (so wear them in different settings depending on how much support is needed), which will allow lift and reduce bouncing while swimming.
Pay attention to the straps.
Straps are an essential part of any suit. They should be comfortable, not dig into the shoulders, and stay in place once one puts them on. If they slip off or dig into the skin, it will ruin the experience at the pool—and possibly cause a nasty rash.
The straps should still be adjustable to fit well even if one gains or loses weight during off-seasons. Additionally, make sure that there’s enough room between the neck and chest for air to circulate.
Choose a colour, pattern, or style that works well with your skin tone and body type.
Choosing the right swimsuit is all about balance. Select a colour, pattern or style that works well with the skin tone and body type.
- Skin tone: For example, if one is fair-skinned and has green eyes, consider wearing a bright blue bikini. If one has pale skin and blue eyes, choose an outfit with orange or yellow (but avoid oranges that are too bright).
- Choose patterns that complement the body type: For some people, stripes make them look bigger; for others, polka dots make them look smaller. Try different styles before finding what works best for one’s personality and body shape!
- Avoid patterns that make the body look bigger/smaller than it is: Consider this tip as one way of helping avoid any “wardrobe malfunctions” while swimming or sunbathing at the beach!
Flattering Styles Have the Right Fabric.
- Fabrics should be smooth and stretchy. One wants their suit to move with them, not hold them back.
- If a fabric isn’t breathable, it can even cause chafing and blisters on the skin during long swims!
- The material shouldn’t be too shiny or dull either — both can make the body look unflattering under extreme conditions like the harsh sun’s rays or dimmer light.
