I'm trying do cardio 3 days a week and knock out 400 crunches 5 days a week to get my tummy together because I want to look extra right in my swimsuit. :)
I was inspired by Jessica White's Sports Illustrated photo (above). Isn't she GORGEOUS?! She looked so beautiful and fashionable in her 2 piece. She choose a suit that was flattering for her body type. It inspired me to want to find the right swimsuit for my figure. Also, I gained additional inspiration from Luli Fama's 2011 swimwear collection. She embraced the power of busy colorful prints from animal to floral with a tribal touch the theme created a variety of beautiful swimwear pieces.
So what swimsuit can flatter your figure? Remember that there are no perfect bodies. Even the women that you think have the perfect body would tell you that that they would love to change something about their figure. I remember reading an article that featured Halle Berry and she even stated that she is not content with her body type. We all may think, "What - Halle Berry is absolutely gorgeous and well proportioned. Why would she say such a thing?" Again, this reinforces the fact that no one's body is perfect...
This should not shake your confidence...you can and will find the right, fashion forward swimsuit for you!
Curveless Body Type
If you have an athletic body or are built straight up and down, you have a lot of choices to choose from! Find swimsuits that have embellishments, ruffles, or belts that help to accentuate your waist which will turn your figure into a shapely one.
If you are heavier on the bottom, opt for a top that is lighter than the color of your bottom. Find halters and scooped bottoms.
If you are busty, wear boy shorts, a high-cut leg, or bottom that is colorful to detract from your bustline. Ensure that your top has padding & an underwire for extra support. Halters are also a great top choice.
Plus Size Body Type
There are many stylish choices for you! Do not cover yourself up or look matronly since high cut bottoms can be so appealing. Look for the ruched styles and avoid horizontal stripes on your waist. Know that the more skin that you show, the more thinner you look. Purchase a one-piece black swimsuit as a staple item.
Go out and enjoy some fashionable fun in the sun as the weather permits! :)
