Choosing A Flattering Bathing Suit
Choosing a bathing suit does not have to be painful. It's a matter of knowing your strong points and your weak points. As with make up and hairstyles it is entirely possible to look beautiful and and confident, or entirely out of place, It all depends on making the right choices, and honest analysation of your weakest points. Women can use color and design to camouflage flaws while at the same time making the most of their assets. The biggest figure flaws that women are concerned about are a large tummy, dimpling upper thighs and rear end, or an overall shapeless figure.
This Suit is Loose around the midsection, and has Ruffles to take attention away from tummy
For Dimpling Around The Rear and Thighs
A dark color is always the best choice because it is so effective in minimizing overall size by adding shade and drawing attention away from trouble areas. A suit such as this one hides the upper thighs with a straight mini skirt. Many women have loose skin and cellulite in this area, and are uncomfortable with the traditional cut of a bathing suit.
The black suit on the left is a perfect example of a classic suit for the average woman who is a few pounds overweight.
The fact that it is black, and has the shirring at the waist will make the waist look smaller and the simple tank top of the upper portion makes the most of a full bust line. Enhancing the large upper portion of the body will always make the center seem small.
Women who are forever trying to lose a few pounds seldom realize that there is another side to that coin. Some women are shapeless, and would love to add curves.One of the best ways to do this is to take advantage of the large selection of suits available today. Fuffles have made a comeback. By adding ruffles to the upper portion of your suit, you create the illusion of a fuller bust.
These ruffled suits add the illusion of curves in all the right places.
The Wrong Suit
Here is example of a woman who chose the wrong suit. She could easily look a lot better than this.
Had she chosen one of the suits for full figured women mentioned here. A full piece with some gathers or color variation crossing over in the center, her figure would actually look nice, as she really does not have many serious flaws, however, this suit enhances every one of them to the hilt.
