Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 11.41.31 AMYes, we are well into that often dreaded time of year . . . swimsuit season.  We are always on the lookout for a great one-piece suit and more importantly, a perfect cover up.  Whether you like a strapless, a halter or a plunging we have gone shopping for a timely selections.  We like bright patterns or colors to deflect the eye from our structural flaws.

The strapless is the most universally flattering style of suit.  There a allure created from the  graceful expanse of arms to shoulders to chest and neck.  It is also is ideal for getting an even all over tan without strap marks.   Make sure the suit has a hidden or attachable strap for dips in the water, and some kind of structure for support.    A bit of a sweetheart neckline, is also a feminine and flattering way to go if you are not too top heavy.  For slimming the middle, either a bit of ruching or a bright pattern will take the attention off the center.   For those with fewer curves on top, try a v-neck halter or a bit of embellishment to enhance the silhouette.   But the most important tip of all is to embrace your body, whatever the shape and get out there to pool or beach and enjoy the best of summer’s fun.

Soft and Feminine
