If you’re like me, you love winter clothing. I love knee-high boots and wool skirts and beautiful, colourful scarves. But I love when the sun comes out and the weather starts getting warmer. The only issue with summer is that it also comes with the need to wear the dreaded swimsuit! In the winter, it’s easy to camouflage the parts of my body that I don’t like or that I don’t want on display…in a bikini, though, it’s a bit harder. Those small triangles of material that most stores call a bikini top just make me want to run, screaming, from every beach in sight!
So how do you maintain that classy, confident persona that you have in the winter when you’re on the beach? Is it even possible? Helen Mirren, at 63, knows what she’s doing, wearing a bikini that’s supportive. And to think most of us put an age limit on bikinis!
Choosing a swimsuit is like choosing any other article of clothing: it’s about knowing your shape and buying what fits, not just what might happen to be your size. For example:
If your stomach is your problem area but you want to wear a bikini: try a folded or ruched bikini bottom
If you want to show off your shoulders, opt for a halter style swimsuit
If you’re hiding scars on your torso, check out tankini options
If you want your bust to look fabulous but not look like it’s spilling out of your swimsuit, wear something supportive!
The great thing about the swimwear that we carry is that they’re made by the same companies that make the lingerie that you love, so you can be sure that they know what they’re doing when it comes to support and fit! But these companies also have style, so they've created swimwear that’s cute, in some gorgeous colours, and some have ruffles or detachable straps, and various options for bottom styles. We carry options that fit not only your size and your shape but also your style, so you can be classy and confident, even on the beach!
And as always, if you’re looking for something that isn't on the website, please contact us and we can special order something for you, at no additional cost.
