Swimwear Basics

Summer is fast approaching and many of us who may be living near coastal areas will be heading off to the beach for a summer getaway. This would be the most appropriate time to show off the bodies that we have long been working out for the past couple of months. Many of us may not have the exquisite bodies of supermodels but if we just know how to accentuate our body parts according to our body type, we'll still look like a million bucks in our swimwear. In my own opinion, I don't really care what other people have to say with regards to how I look in my swimsuit as long as I am confident and comfortable in it.

For those of you who have boy shaped bodies, create the illusion of curves or an hourglass figure by wearing bottoms that are high in the thigh area. Sexy cuts or those with string sides would be best. Bikini tops with prints and decorative designs can give you fuller looking breasts. Try to avoid wearing a single solid color one piece suit as well as those with vertical stripe design.

For those of you who are curvaceous on the hips and thighs, you can create the illusion of smaller hips with a skirted bottom especially for those with pear shaped bottoms. A v-neck top would make your body appear more proportionate as well. You can create a trick also by wearing a darker bottom and a lighter colored top.

For someone who is well endowed with bigger bosom, opt for a top in a halter style that shows off just a little cleavage and provides ample support. You can find tops that offer extra support, even those with cups and under wire to hold your breasts in place. I would strongly suggest avoiding tops that offer minimal support or are flimsy giving only a small amount of coverage like those in strapless design or triangle tops.

For women who are conscious of their stomachs or bulging middles you can find tankinis that has a bikini bottom but a top in a tank top design. You can also find swimwear with panels for tummy control functioning just like a girdle would. You can always cover up with stylish sarongs, tunics and swim or surfer shorts.

Get the right swimwear and people will surely notice you at the beach. Enjoy some fun in the sun this summer.
