How to choose swimwear

So it's time to find the perfect swimsuit! There are plenty of ways to accent your good parts and down play those you aren't so thrilled about. Start with sizing up what your body is all about and what kind of swimwear style you feel most comfortable in. It's important you like the style of your swimsuit selection otherwise it will sit in your drawer and not get used.

If you tend to be smaller busted, then choose halter and triangle bikini tops and take advantage of the under wire bra tops that offer you more lift. Try wearing lighter colors, shiny fabrics, metallics, and prints that embellish what you do have.

If you have the opposite problem and prefer to downplay your endowment, try wrap, surplice tops, strategically placed floral prints, stripes and color blocking to look great while achieving the desired look. First and foremost should be concerns of support, under wires and built in bras are easy to find and do the job. Be sure whatever you buy has sturdy straps.

Your tummy and bottom need just as much attention as the bust does. Control fabrics are commonplace and offer contouring where it's needed. Patterns that can be helpful as are vertical stripes and dark solids, which tend to balance things out. If your legs tend to be on the short side, beware the boy-leg shorts or the flirty skirts. Try a style that rides high to lengthen your legs.

TIP: When you find a suit that really works for you buy two in different patterns; never hurts to have an extra one on hand. Have fun picking out the swimsuit of your dreams.
