Choosing Your Swimwear...

Choosing a swimsuit can be very frustrating.  Standing in a department store looking at rack after rack of different styles and colors can be enough to send you screaming from the store.  There are a few things to look at when choosing your swimwear.

One of the easiest things to figure out is which color/colors look the best on you.  It can be as simple as grabbing your best friend and having them look while you model different colored clothing to see what compliments your skin and hair color.  From your deductions you can choose which colors you like the most and go with those.

A good example for guidance is fitting the pear shaped woman.  Her shoulders are narrower than her hips.  The trick is balancing the look.  Try a swimsuit that draws the eyes away from the hips toward the shoulders or chest.  This swimsuit might have embellishment on the straps or shoulders. It might have a structured cup or a V-neck.  All of these features will draw the eyes away from the hips and toward the neck.

Another example would be the straight-figured woman.  She is commonly called a banana in body-shape-speak.  She might opt to choose a bikini or a swimsuit that accentuates what curve she does have.  A monokini with cut out sides will give the appearance of curves.  A bikini with triangle top and string bottom will also give the illusion of curves.
