I don’t know about you, but the summer weather makes me think about heading to the coast and hitting the beach! Each Friday you can tune in to scope out some of the summer’s best swimsuits. And the best part- you’ll be as comfortable and supported in these suits as you are in a well fitted bra! The days of having your bosom smashed into a shelf, feeling a bit floppy, and worried about being shapeless are gone- I’ve scoped out suits for every body type and breast size. Maybe a little beach volleyball won’t be out of the question this year for fear of getting a black eye (just kidding!) or having a swimsuit malfunction (not kidding). Why wouldn’t you want a swimsuit that fits, flatters, & feels fantastic so that you can strut your stuff with confidence? I’ve got your needs covered from top to bottom with a (mostly) Photo Blog of accessories, advice on care, one pieces, bikinis, & this week’s selection- tankinis.
What’s to love about a Tankini? Well, what’s not to love?! For those of us who have always struggled with differing top, middle, and bottom sizes, this style allows for a mix & match size options. If you also happen to be short-waisted, the tankini solves the issue of extra fabric bunched up in the waist area, as can happen with a traditional one piece. Varying necklines and strap placement guarantee you’ll be able to play up your top and still feel secure. Most styles have more than one matching bottom available, so you get to choose the best shape and how much coverage you want for your backside!
