Happy Tuesday! Welcome back from the weekend! Hope everyone had a great long holiday and soaked up some sun. I spent most of my weekend in not much more than a bikini and sunglasses. I am obsessed with this suit mostly because of the way it works with my curves and cuts me up in proportions that work for my body type. That's really the key in choosing the right swimsuit. It's all about emphasizing the good bits and playing down the bits that you don't feel overly confident about.
Finding and highlighting your waist is something we talk about a lot when choosing the right garment and it's starting to show up in swim silhouettes now as well. Since it tends to be one of the smallest parts of a women's body, it's an awesome spot to emphasize so all of your curves really come out and be celebrated. Back in the day women would spend so much time and effort using a corset to get the look of a whittled waist, which seems so antiquated to the modern woman, but ever since Khloe Kardashian grammed about using a "waist trainer" we can now expect to see this come back into fashion. I'm not sure I'll latch on to the idea of walking around uncomfortably while something is sucking the life out of me but hey, maybe those gals were on to something!
For now, I'll just stick to finding swimsuit like this one that visually tricks your eye into looking like you have a tinier waist. I also really like this one as well for the same reason.
