Swimsuit for your Body Type

Main photo

Shopping for the best swimsuit for your body type can be a nightmare. Of course we want it all, to look great, feel confident and sexy. You can accomplish this with a little patience and a few tips. The indications below are for women of all sizes whether you are small, average or plus size.

The goal is to balance your figure to be in proportion.

IF YOU ARE A TRIANGLE SHAPE, your hips are larger than your top.

Avoid a one piece, monochromatic bathing suit that will accentuate this shape. Instead you will want to enhance the top and play down the bottom to balance out your shape.

Opt for a halter top,  bandeau or V neck with embellishment, ruffles, ruching, pattern or underwire to create the appearance of a fuller bust.

The bottom should be simple and a dark color. A high cut will elongate your leg and a low cut will camouflage your hips. This really depends on your size and height. Read the rest of this entry

Households usually spend between 3 to 10% of the income on clothes, the average being 6% for your entire family. If you have children, they have huge needs and wants, so it is important to use your budget wisely.

Know what you have in your closet and make a wardrobe plan. A shopping list is a great tool and stick to your list. This will avoid impulse buying, purchasing doubles and items that do not fit you nor your activities.


Dressing well is not about wearing the latest trend or wearing designer labels. Read the rest of this entry
