FASHION — 25 June 2012

Before hitting the beach this summer, it’s imperative to shop for the chicest bathing suit to fit your body.  Many of us end up wearing something trendy for the beach and we end up being uncomfortable all day long.  When bathing suit shopping this season, remember to find a suit that accentuates what you’ve got and minimizes what you don’t like.  For example, if you are small chested, a bandeau bikini or something with a ruffled top will enhance your top.

If you have a body to die for, perhaps a cut-out bathing suit is perfect for showing off those chiseled abs.  Packing extra pounds in your mid-section? Opt for a one piece with ruching to hide that bulge.  Don’t forget a nice pareo or a Missoni beach coverup.  Make sure not to leave the house without sunscreen.  I love Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen in an SPF of 30.
