How To Choose Right Swimwear  

by Pool Builders on 08-05-2009 in Articles

As the temperatures rise, you may begin to think of beaches, swimming pools, and the dreaded trip to the department store to pick out swimwear in plus size. More than ever, there are a multitude of different styles, colors, and fabrics that are available to full figured women.

Selecting the right swimwear for you is an intensely personal choice that's driven by a whole lot more than just price, color, style and size. This is why the majority of women you talk to will tell you that buying swimwear is one of the most frustrating experiences associated with buying clots.

Swimsuit For Swimming

If you're into swimming, definitely get a one-piece. Find one that doesn't cut

into the shoulders, has comfortable, stretchy fabric and doesn't creep up the

backside. Forget bikini strings. You just don't want anything to come undone while

you're doing laps or snorkeling off a crowded beach.

Hourglass figure

An hourglass figure? You don't really need help with swimwear with a figure like yours. Still, you can mess up your look if you wear ill-fitting swimwear or a bikini top or swimwear top that doesn't provide enough support for your breasts if yours are heavy.

Curvy figures

* Halter necks with broad bands provide support for fuller busts.

* Hipster bottoms add an illusion of height to shorter bodies and legs.

* Block colours or simple patterns work well on bigger girls.

If you are just looking to take a mommy and me swim class with a toddler while expecting or participate in a mom's aqua- aerobics class or simply prefer the one piece look, a texture heart style is a great all purpose suit and at a lower price due to a lighter less supportive fabric. This suit is very stretchy and has a shelf bra. The straps criss-cross in the back to form the shape of a heart.

A Big Tummy

If you do have a big tummy then look, for swimwear with different colours and vertical panels down each side. This will give the illusion of a slimmer body and will also streamline your shape. Don't let it all hang out in a bikini, it won't make you feel good.

One piece maternity swimwear is very pretty - if you don't mind your tummy sticking out, as you can definitely see your shape as the suit hugs your belly. If you don't want to look pregnant that much, then the full coverage styles, which are longer in the front are better for you.

Just remember that nobody has the perfect body and whatever you see on the magazines and billboards is nothing but digitally edited images. You have to trust that you also have certain aspects of your body that you can emphasize with a swimsuit such that you'll feel good about yourself when you're at the beach or lounging around the pool.
