The spring season is upon us, the air is growing warmer and we are slowly starting to reduce the amount of items we layer on our bodies in the morning… which means that the beach is only a few steps away. There are a number of styles that have come to fruition this spring season, and there are some that have resurfaced.
This elegant and delicate design creates a gorgeous image around the frame of the body. This style is found in both bikinis and one-pieces, and both are equally stunning. Also look out for crochet shawls or wrap around skirts to add to your beach wear items. Only thing to be warned of here- these provide less support due to the material, oh and they can end up giving you some rather strange tan-lines.
VINTAGE, VINTAGE, VINTAGE!
It seems that calling on the classic look is rearing its head all over the fashion world this season. Join the vintage revolution with their high-waisted bikini bottoms or rounded neck straps. This style also works in that it makes covering up look sexy! So if you are a little unsure of your figure and are looking for a trendy way to play it safe then this is the perfect style for you. Color and pattern design on the swimwear items can range from bright bold and solid colours, or a polka-dot display, or even a vintage print.
We saw the one-strap first make its debut around 2010 but the phase was soon overcome and people seemed to have moved on. As it where, it appears that the phase did not last long enough- the demand is back. And this time the design comes in a whole range of variations. This is definitely something worth taking a second glace at as it can please a whole range of bathing suit requests while still providing you with the fashionable twist of the single strap.
Your best fit…
If you are anything like me and have been relying on those winter layers to cover up the extra “warmth” you’ve been accumulating this cold season then here are a few hints of how to swimsuit-up according to your shape.
Little bust, big bum (the pear): to equalize your appearance and add volume to your breast area consider using ruffles or material detail, perhaps even padded cups. You can do this with both a bikini and a one-piece.
The big bust: ruffles can be used here again, except now on the lower half of the body. Make sure that you opt for an item that will provide you with the adequate support, such as a halterneck, and avoid items that are too flimsy, such as strapless or crochet swimsuits.
Full Figure: instead of hiding behind bulky towels or throw-overs, embrace your curves, items such as cupped breasts or halternecks will add femininity to your figure. Concentrate on detail coming in towards the waist to enhance the hourglass figure.
Lacking the height department: the best thing that you can do here is to draw more attention to the upper part of your body, therefore allow the eyeline to follow your figure upwards by wearing a printed bikini top and single coloured bikini bottom.
Athletic: if you would like to give your figure a feminine bathing suit appearance then elect items that show off more of you toned silhouette, this can be done with the use of crochet, strapless or backless styles.
