It’s here, the dreaded swimsuit season -ha! But with it comes a whole lot of fun if we can just be a little nicer to ourselves and tell that small voice in our heads to be quiet, damn it! (Yes, that’s the first time I’ve used a bad word on this blog, but that’s how passionately I feel about that little voice. It needs to be told to be quiet.) Here’s the thing, we may not have the bodies we used to, but it’s all we’ve got. Instead of allowing that little voice to eat away at our summer fun, let’s cheer ourselves on, own these bodies, and buy a great swimsuit that makes us feel fabulous! After all, you know we’ll be looking at pictures 10 years from now and think, “Man, I should have been nicer to myself.”
I decided to categorize the swimsuits by “attributes” (yup, that’s my glass half full approach to the word “issue”). You may roll your eyes, but we must correct that voice. Tell it, attribute NOT issue. And, just in case you are wondering if I have an attribute I worry about or a little voice I hear, you can read about it here.
Oh, and most of these swimsuits could be for multiple attributes, so I have added succinct side notes. 🙂
Attribute: Small Chest
Clearly I like the ruffle idea for a small chest this year -ha! Well, why not?! It’s super cute and totally on trend! The ruffle adds a little fluff to the chest area. Side note: 5 would also look good on someone with a bottom.
Attribute: Big Chest
All of these swimsuits come in a D cup or would support a D cup. Support is the key with big chests. Otherwise they can make you look bigger or over take you. Side note: 1 would also look good on someone with a long torso, and 2, 4, 5 would be good options for someone wanting more tummy support.
What can I say? The grecian drape and the ruffle are in -ha! But it’s a good thing, because it’s the perfect way to cover the tummy attribute. Side note: 3 has a really cute cut out detail you all have to see. All of these suits would look good on someone with a bottom.
If your bottom is your attribute, it’s important that you try to elongate. That’s why all of these have a deep v. If you feel uncomfortable with the v, order the swimsuit and try it on for your husband, boyfriend, or bestie (not your mom), and see what they say. I know they will say you look great and you can do it! Side note: All would look good with a small chest and 4 would look good with a tummy.
