Swimsuits That Will Give You Confidence

It’s been proven that the most anxiety producing clothing item a woman can shop for is a swimsuit!! Not many women take comfort in buying a garment that has them parading around in public half naked with nothing to hide behind unless they choose to wear a muu-muu? In order to build confidence and feel good about the way you look, it is important to learn what will flatter your body to its fullest potential! Here are my swimsuit picks for common body concerns…

Conceal a large chest- Look for swimsuits that have built in bras, underwire, and adjustable straps. Try a two-Piece suit that you can purchase in your actual bra size, it will actually give you a custom fit that you need. So many companies are doing this now! You want the girls well supported and not sagging, overflowing, spilling, or bulging!

Enhance a small chest- Choose anything that adds volume…ruffles, fringe, padding! Stay away from triangle string bikinis!

Conceal a tummy- If you haven’t thought about ever trying a two-piece, now is the time! High-Waisted two-piece swimwear is all the rage and is a perfect swimsuit choice for those who are looking to hide a belly! Or try one-piece swimsuits with ruching detail, ruching works miracles! Plus, anything that is lighter on top and darker at the mid-section will divert the
eye up and take attention away from your mid-section!

Create a waist- Look for swimsuits with color blocking, and defined definition at the waist! Bikinis are not ideal, but a tight fitted ruched tankini will work!

Elongate short legs- ok, so this is were less is more! Think of the signature Baywatch babe red swimsuit, with the super high cut legs! You want to stay away from heavy fabric on the hip and thigh area! No swim skirts for you ladies!!!!

A Second Try With Stitch-Fix!

image
So if you haven’t already read my first post about my Stitch-Fix experience then I’ll fill you in briefly…it wasn’t good. So I decided to give Stitch-Fix another try.

So I completed an online evaluation of my first fix. Where I explained my surprise in the things they chose, I requested a second delivery and recommended that this time they actually look at my Pinterest boards!? With that I requested my second fix!

First Item…

I can honestly say I really like this item! It spoke to the boho/hippie side to me! Also, the fit was amazing! I envision wearing this with a pair of white jeans and wedges or over a purple bikini I already own!

Next…not sure I’m feeling this one..

I will tell you I’m a huge fan of statement necklaces! I own many already. But not sure this one is me. So I’m on the fence!

A black top…

If you read my first review, you know I also like garments that have a little edge and that appeal to my rocker side. I have to say this did, especially once I put it on! It looked amazing and I love the ruched, studded sleeve detail!

Item #4…

The perfect summer tank! Love the fabric…soft and lightweight! But I especially loved the sheer back panel! Will definitely keep this one!

Last but not least…

image

A chevron print maxi skirt! I have to say I love maxi skirts! This one had a great fit, hugged in all the right places! But mostly I like the chevron pattern. It has the ability to hide flaws and definitely has a boho feel. A keeper…

Decided to pair these two together…

image

Definitely will wear these together!

Overall this experience was a 180° from my first shot at Stitch-Fix! My “stylist” definitely reviewed my previous feedback and even commented on my Pinterest activity saying “you have good taste”! My recommendation is go ahead give Stitch-Fix a go, just be patient!
