We know that buying swimwear can be tough, which is why we are here to help! At Cristalina Store, we offer styles that suit every body type and will make you look like a mermaid when it's time to go to the beach!
This week, we want to share with you five essential tips to keep in mind when shopping for that perfect bikini/one piece:
- It’s important to know your body, including size and weight. This will help in choosing a swimsuit that best fits your body type. There are three important areas that should know how to highlight: Hips, waist and bust. These are the main references that help make any piece work for you. Also, it's important to define what areas you would like to accentuate. Love your bust? Don't be afraid to try on a triangle top. Want to hide your hips? Maybe a high waisted bottom or one piece is the way to go!
- Take colors into consideration when it’s time to get a new suit. Understand your skin tone and learn which colors contrast well with it. Tan or darker skin tones usually go well with whites or neon pieces while lighter skin tones usually do great with black and red suits. It's definitely all in the details. Believe it or not, choosing the right color can accentuate your favorite features while making you feel confident in a bikini.
- Take advantage of the styles and perks of each swimsuit. Bikini tops with under wire or padding add a lift that help your bust sit higher, resulting in a slimmer waist appearance. Ruched bikini bottoms (those with an elastic on the back side) help give an illusion of a perfectly lifted bum!
- Posture matters. Believe it or not, the posture you have when you go on a swimwear shopping spree makes all the difference! Standing straight help keeps your tummy tucked in and will give you a new perspective on the fit of that swimwuit.
- Your plans for the beach day. The type of activity you have planned for your beach occasion is very influential when you buy the swimsuit you'll wear that day. If you’re going surfing, active tops and neoprene bikinis, rash guards and spring suits might be the way to go. On the other hand, if you're going for a relaxed day of tanning, you might want a strapless top that will leave no unnecessary marks and a skimpy side-tie bottom.
