ITS ALMOST THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN!
Swimsuit shopping can be daunting BUT it doesn’t have to be so painful when you know how to shop for your body type.
As a Style coach, I’ve had LOTS of practice when it comes to helping clients select the most flattering one for their silhouettes.
I’ve had countless Style Coaching clients tell me post swimsuit shopping together how easy, painless and successful it was when we knew what their body type and colours is AND which swimsuit styles and brands are best for them.
(I even offer online shopping experiences)
In my new blog post, I am sharing my swimsuit shopping tips for how to shop for a swimsuit successfully!
Solve your swimsuit problems by implementing my style tips below!
Know your body type and best colours. That is the first thing I do with my clients.
By knowing your body type you can then easily assess a swimsuit, whether it be in person or online, and determine if it’ll flatter your figure or not.
This will save you so much time and energy (and probably sanity!) trying on swimsuits as you’ll avoid ones that are just never going to work.
For example, if you are an hourglass you want to focus on styles that have a wrap-like silhouette.
If you are more of a triangle, then a swimsuit with an off the shoulder or boat neckline can be very flattering.
When I am shopping for swimsuits for a client I always ask them what areas they would prefer to conceal, AND which areas they wouldn’t mind accentuating.
For example, I often have clients that don’t love their upper thighs so we go with a cute skirted swimsuit or a swimsuit with a kimono wrap.
Or a client that has had multiple c-sections and prefers to have her tummy concealed, so we focus on high waisted bikinis or ruched bottom one pieces.
But you can’t just focus on the areas you want concealed, you also have to accentuate the positive!
I know this can be challenging as women because we can be too hard on ourselves, but I believe in you!
If you have a pretty collarbone, then why not get a swimsuit with a pretty ruffled or detailed neckline.
Or if you have a more defined waist, then opt for a swimsuit that’s belted at your natural waist.
When you are honest with yourself you are able to really enjoy shopping for swimsuits that will really serve and flatter you.
If you have a larger bust, then finding a swimsuit with underwire or good support is important.
It’s not always easy to try on swimsuits, especially after the winter and spring when we’re used to seeing ourselves more covered up.
But remember at the end of the day we are often our own worst critics.
By implementing my swimsuit shopping & style tips, you will find success in finding a flattering swimsuit that you are both comfortable & confident in, just like my Style clients have!
