Choosing the Right Swimsuit

From Rhianna to Beyonce, it seems that celebrities are embracing one piece swimsuits on their holidays. These costumes have long since deviated from the days of the iconic Baywatch swimsuit and there are now a huge variety of styles to suit all body shapes and sizes. As well as providing more coverage than your average bikini, one-pieces work especially well for those that are more active on the beach as they can offer more support and control.
Before browsing the shops and searching on the internet it can be worth thinking about the type and style of costume that you require. It is also worth considering your body shape and the type of coverage that you want from your costume as this will ultimately affect its style.
For many women, the greatest emphasis is often placed on drawing attention away from the tummy area. However, there are far more effective ways of flattering this area than simply choosing a plain black costume.
Costumes with detailing towards the top, such as a halterneck or clasp detailing are a great way of drawing attention upwards. Additionally, a costume with a band of different colour underneath the bust area can help to create a perfect waistline and the illusion of that much desired hourglass figure. When it comes to choosing colours, contrary to popular belief, patterns can be a great way of breaking the costume up and detracting attention from the tummy or other areas.
Tummy control costumes are also ideal for those concerned about this area. These work by having material panels which help to pull in and smooth the tummy area. What’s more is that this is completely invisible to the eye, so no-one need know that you are wearing a tummy control costume at all!
Many one-pieces now offer hidden underwire support, which is ideal if you have a larger bust, as this provides adequate support without impairing the overall design of the costume. Certain costumes may also have a side boning which means that they pull the costume in and helps to provide a perfect fit so it is worth looking for these additional features in a costume.
A poorly fitting costume can be both unflattering and uncomfortable so it can be beneficial to choose a costume with adjustable straps – either tie up straps or with a clip adjuster similar to an adjuster found on a bra strap.
For slightly less coverage, one shoulder or strapless costumes can work well. Or alternatively, think about a costume with a low scoop back for added sexiness. This style can also help to shape and flatter the bottom area. Generally speaking these details can give the illusion of more curves so they are great for boyish figures.
When it comes to choosing a swimsuit there is certainly a style out there to suit each and every body shape. The important thing is to think about the style and type of coverage that you want from a costume before beginning your search and assessing the swimsuit on your criteria. Finally, it is also important to ensure that the costume fits well by using a quality material that will maintain its shape after being in the pool and the beach.
