For many women, buying new swimsuits for women is not a pleasant experience. Swimsuit shopping forces you to face up to all of the problem areas on your body that you can usually cover with clothing. Shopping for a swimsuit needn't be a nightmare, however, as long as you know how to select the right one for your body.
1. Take stock of your body type. Whether you are pear shaped, apple shaped, heavy on top, boy shaped, flat chested or short waisted, you need to know, so that you can look for the appropriate swimsuit. If you can't look at your body honestly, you won't be able to maximize your assets and minimize your figure flaws.
2. Pick a top that works with your bust size. Large busts can be minimized by wearing supportive halter-top suits in solid colors. Conversely, patterned or ruffled-bandeau tops or padded-bikini tops can give the illusion of fullness to a small chest.
3. Choose the right bottom for your rear. If you have a large rear, you can either cover it up with a skirted bottom or boy shorts, or you can draw attention away from it by wearing a patterned top. Perfect backsides are accentuated by the low rise and string bottoms.
4. Select bikinis that allow you to mix and match tops and bottoms. Many women are shaped differently on the top and the bottom, and these suits allow you to get the proper fit everywhere. Some makers even let you interchange solids and patterns, so you can choose where you want the eye drawn to on your body.
5. Opt for a one-piece suit or tankini to camouflage a flabby middle. You can find suits with a little extra tightness around the tummy for shaping your waist.
6. Bite the bullet and try on swimsuits. The best way to determine whether a swimsuit is right for you is to see it on your own body. If you don't like looking at yourself in the swimsuit, odds are other people won't either.
7. Select a swimsuit in which you can jump around. Some women's swimsuits are not built for action, and the slightest movement can cause a wardrobe malfunction. A trial run can help prevent embarrassment.
