Curvy Girl’s Guide To Swimming Suits
Going for swim-suit shopping can get really tedious, and not to forget, mind-wrecking as well as torturous if you, like the majority of women, are on the curvier side of the wheel. No, you do not need to be over-weight or bulky in order to classify as the curvy woman. If you have those killer curves, be it a little on the heavy side like Huma Qureshi, or even if you are a petite curvy woman like Malaika Arora Khan—curves are meant to be adored, and adorned with dignity.
Agreed, swimming costumes need you to show off a little skin, sometimes a little more than what is required; and that is the main reason why women dread wearing swimming costumes in public. So we, here at wiseshe, decided to craft out the Curvy girl’s ultimate guide to swimming suits.
Keep in mind your body shape
Curvy comes in all shapes and sizes—fleshy curves, petite curves, or even perfectly curved hour-glass kind of figure. The best way to dress up your curves is to dress according to your body type. If you have more weight on the lower part of your body, divert your attention towards the upper half with the help of fringes, bows, and or, or plunging necklines. Similarly if you carry weight on your bust area, divert the onlookers attention towards the other slender parts of your body like your waist or hips and legs.
Chose bold, bright and deep colors
Deep neutral colors are always said to be a curvy girl’s best friend, or so it is believed to be—but I am not here to repeat the already known facts. I would suggest you to shut your ears to the toxic stereotypes imposed on curvy women. Instead, try bold and bright hues which attract attention towards your assets. Better, try color blocking, which when done right, can look gorgeous.
Wear small patterns
The thumb rule of fashion—i.e, if you follow rules at all—is to match curvy bodies with smaller prints, and to embrace petite bodies in bigger, more attention seeking prints. Wear smaller prints, and if you like, try and opt for sequined swim suits or swim suits which have metallic detailing on them. Try and avoid frills, bows and ruffles on the heavier parts of your bodies.
Opt for high waisted lowers
High waist swim suits scream retro-chic, and are in true sense, a curvy woman’s best friend. If you are into two piece swim suits, opt for high waisted lowers—try skirt type or u-shaped lowers instead of boy shorts or clingy v-shape lowers. High waist lowers help you achieve a clean silhouette and trims in your tummy very neatly.
Chose under-wire bra style tops
If you are one of those women who are confident enough to carry a tad bit revealing two piece swim suits, try and opt for bra style tops. If you are on the bustier side, opt for under-wire bra styles with broader straps to create more support for your girlies. Pair them with high waisted skirt style lowers and see heads turning.
Opt for cross-type ruched swimsuits
Curvy women are advised to, and should comfortably wear ruched style bandeau swimsuits—oh man, how gorgeously it drapes around curvy figures. Want an even better looking silhouette? Try wearing a cross-style ruched body suit in color-blocked patterns or mono colors (whatever you prefer wearing). Bold colors go perfectly with such swim suit designs.
So here were some cult favorite tips from the most confident curvy-women across the globe.
So which tips are you going to rock while wearing swim suits this swimming season?
