How to pick a fabulous swimsuit!

Summer is here and I am not ready! I am not sure when I fell off the “get my body ready for summer wagon” but now I feel like this baby, LOL!

I enjoy hanging out at the pool and going to the beach so I try to buy a new swimsuit every summer. Shopping for swimsuits can be a challenge especially when you have a few “problem areas” LOL! I am always on the hunt for a cute one piece but, I was surprised to see some nice high waisted two piece swimsuits out there that I may consider! I usually find a swimsuit I like at Target! They always come through with cool designs that look great at a reasonable price.

Through years of trial and error, I have come up with my Top 5 things I look for when buying a swimsuit:

  1. Ruching! I just love those flowing pleats. They gather across your middle which is so flattering for your waistline.

2. A little black swimsuit is always a great choice. You can count on it to be slimming and chic!

3. Stripes done right! This one-piece has ruching that gathers the stripes for a great look. The two-piece is high waisted and flattering for a curvy figure.

4. Wide supportive straps are important. No string bikini tops for me, I am not trying to have a wardrobe malfunction! LOL

The last picture is a swimsuit romper! I have never seen one before but it looks like it would be flattering for any body type.. I will have to check it out at Target!

5. Interesting designs and matching wraps. I love to find cover-ups or wraps to match my swimsuit. It is such a bonus when there is a matching pattern that goes with the swimsuit.

  1. Like you, Kery, I absolutely love water play, any my family spends many days at the beach or poolside. I wish I greeted shopping for swimsuits with the same vigor as my other clothing.

    1. I know. Every year I have to get my mind “right” for swimsuit shopping. I think this post was my pep talk, LOL

  2. Great top 5 tips! I especially need to consider adding interesting designs. I think all of my suits are solid colors, I need to branch out.
