If there’s someone qualified to give advice on how to find the ideal swimsuit that’s flattering, comfortable, casual, and sexy at the same time it’s the supermodel, style icon, swimwear designer and mother of four, Heidi Klum!
After years of modeling lingerie and swimwear, she assures that there are only 3 things you MUST look for in a swimsuit: The best style for your body type, the right size, and most importantly, the suit that makes you feel comfortable and confident. If you find a bikini or one piece that has these three elements, that means you’ve found the perfect swimsuit for you.
Aside from these 3 essential elements, here are some other tips from the supermodel:
- Always prefer comfort over fashion: if you choose a bikini or a one-piece swimsuit, they both should look great and still be able to hold up against ocean waves. Keep in mind that being in a swimsuit is the closest you’ll get to being naked in public, so you want to be comfortable all the time, it’s the only way to feel confident.
- One-piece swimsuits can be simple yet stylish: this trend looks flattering on women of all ages, it’s comfortable and it can be very sexy with cutouts or cute added embellishments.
- Mix and match for greater support: if you have a big bust you should try to mix and match to find a Bikini top that gives more support so you don’t have to keep readjusting your top everytime you go into the water. Halter tops are great to pull up and in to give an extra lift.
- Your swimsuit can last for years if you take good care of it: be gentle to your swimsuit as you are with your lingerie, hand-wash it as soon as you get back from the beach or pool and let it dry naturally and your favorite swimsuit pieces will last for so much longer.
