Bikini Flair

With my recent swimwear observations at a local beach, and my own personal obsession with shopping bikinis, I feel equipped to share some tips for looking great while frolicking in the surf. Style is key, and good color choice essential. With the ability to purchase tops and bottoms separately there is simply no excuse for blending into the crowd at the beach.

First, determine what style of top flatters your figure the best. You may already own one, and if you do, try to find it in other colors or patterns. Here is a tip: very few women look good in bikinis without a little support in the top. You either must be a perky 18 year old or have been enhanced. Unfortunately, those supportless tops fill up racks everywhere and flaunt many tempting textures and colors along with a less expensive price tag. If you wear a bra with a little underwire or push-up, look for the same in your bikini. Shop them. You won't love your shape on the beach otherwise. Also, reconsider ruffles, as they flatter the bustline by design.

Don't bottom out! So many bottoms look good on the models, but not on the average woman. If possible try them on before purchasing. Or, if shopping through a catalog, buy a couple of different styles, and send back what doesn't flatter. Ruched and skirted bottoms flatter many figures. The idea is to look well- proportioned, and feel confident with your choice.

Dare to enjoy the wild new mix-it-up trend! Wear your paisley top with your solid bright bottoms, or your striped yellow bottom with a polka-dot top. Use good color sense but don't be afraid to swap tops and bottoms. In fact, I intentionally and strategically bought a top and bottom that delightfully contrasted. Don't be caught wearing the same exact suit as the stranger under the umbrella next to you. Too many fun patterns grace the stores to ignore and the availability of a wide variety of color calls you to originality.

These days cover-ups scream 'look at me' with their dazzling colors and often sheer fabric. Also, they have become skimpier. While many ladies love to match their suits exactly, others choose colors that dramatically contrast their suit. Either idea shows savvy. I have worn a strapless yellow cover-up dress to match my yellow suit, but have also paired a bright orange skirt with a hot pink bikini. Look intentional with your beach attire.

Lastly, don't be afraid to find a bikini that suits you, and wear it with confidence! Don't underestimate the power of the right bikini!
