Finding the Perfect Swimsuit for Summer


It may not seem like it, but summer is coming. The sun’s beams, warm and sometimes uncomfortable, will make and appearance this summer, so you need to be ready.  That means finding the perfect swim suit for your body.  Every woman’s body is different so naturally, some clothing options work and others end up looking horrendous.  Here are six options, each unique and trendy for the summer for you to pick and choose from.  Throughout the summer, a little more skin is revealed than in the average winter weather, so we want you to be comfortable in your own skin.  Here’s some way to do it:
1. The Triangle


The first on the list is the very reliable triangle swimsuit.  It’s the most basic look that is both suitable as a trendy just walking on sand or wading in the water look or for the more “sporty” type that indulges in wake boarding and surfing.  Think Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush.  

2. Strapless


A strapless bikini, is the epitome of feminine as bikinis come.  With cute florals, ruffles or a jeweled connection, this style of swim suit is classic, sweet and perfect for lounging.


3. Push Up


Push Up swim suits are the fun, flirtatious and sexy.  They give you an air of sexy confidence.  With either a halter or spaghetti strapped styling, this type of swim suit knows how to accentuate your body in a cool confident way.  They’re even quite cute and feminine with a cute tie in the middle.

4. Retro


Retro and vintage swimsuits became trendy recently, but there’s something about a mix of a high waisted conservative floral bottom and cute corset-ish top that makes this look addicting.  Think how great Taylor Swift looks donning her vintage swim wear with her cute pony tail and a pair or round lens sunglasses.  It’s a new design that show a woman who is not afraid to change with the tides of fashion, but yet owns her own sense of self in no matter what she wears.

5.  Tankini


Think back to the days of the effortlessly beautiful Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model.  Think Cyndi Crawford smiling proudly on the cover.  The tankini is one of the most basic designs: a top hanging off at the waist and a cute ruffled bottom.  It’s the swimsuit where you don’t have to worry about what your body looks like, about bloating and such, and you can still look and feel beautiful.  Add a cute sun hat and shades and you can channel any fashion time period in this timeless piece.

6. The One-Piece or Monikini


The first time I saw a monokini was in the CW show Nikita where Maggie Q plays a seductive rogue agent.  Her job, naturally, was to seduce men and her red hot number certainly did the job.  The monokini is essentially a one piece swim suit, but it has been re-vamped, and really re-vamped.  Straps still hang from the shoulders and the swimsuit covers your body, but in the midrift area, cutouts are made.  Now cutouts are on top of the current trend listings with shirts and dresses, so why not put them into swimsuits?  The monokini is possesses power and attention with its intense design.  It hones in on sexy and carries it all the way through.


Each swim suit, from the traditional bikini to the daring monokini are unique, beautiful and stylish for any water outing.  So choose which look is your key look and which will you be trying out.
