Choosing the best fit swimwear

link to bikiniluxe

 

Choosing just right swimwear can be rather stressful, especially when you are not mannequin figured (like majority of us 🙂 ) or have different top and bottom sizes.

Start by assuring the right size for your body type (measure your torso, bust, waist and height). Then try to mix and match your favorite pieces, choosing the amount of coverage and support you feel most comfortable in.

The trick is to use the right cut for you, based on your preferred activities on the beach.

Choose colors of swimwear that contrast with your skin tone

White, sensitive skin that almost doesn’t tan, porcelain type

-Choose dark and cold shades – you will look great in black swimwear, navy blue, emerald green, deep purple, red or brown. Avoid nude colors, white, yellow and orange (your skin will look simply pale)

Light, Olive and Golden skin

In the beginning of your holidays use dark colors for swimwear. Once you get tanned, you may use what ever color you like! You will look great both in cold or warm colors, nudes or neon shades, plain or printed models. Lucky you!

Dark skin

Choose the colors that contrast and highlight your skin color. White, yellow, orange or neon will look amazing on dark skin. You can play with color, patterns and contrasts. Intense colors (red, fuxia pink, blue, green) will also perfectly match!

Enjoy your beach time!
