Guide To Picking The Right Swimwear For You

Guide To Picking The Right Swimwear For You

Summertime is here, vacations are planned, the weather is hot, and the water is calling you for a dip. With the right swimwear, you can enjoy your swim with more confidence. Yet, many women find it hard to pick the right swimwear that fits their needs.


That’s why we have prepared this guideline to help every woman make the right choice.

Swimwear market

Today, the swimwear market is on the rise. The fashion industry has started to focus on swimwear trends in their summer collections, which are available in many shops during the summer season. Not only that, but many brands and manufacturers have worked on considering a wide range of women’s needs since not all women feel comfortable in a bikini or a one-piece bathing suit. Furthermore, online shopping has given women more versatile swimwear options. Whether you want modest plus size swimwear or trendy maternity ones, you can easily find all types online. Especially, for women out there who like to engage in water activities and feel more confident and comfortable; they can find surfing shorts, rash guards, or suit ups in one-piece skirted pants.

Swimwear features

No matter what style you will pick, always prioritize the following features. Swimwear fabric needs to protect you from the sun, so pick at least 50 SPF fabrics; you will find this information written on stickers or side labels. Chlorine-resistant fabrics will keep your swimwear protected from water chemicals, preserving their material. If you do not want your figure to be shown when your swimsuit is wet, then a non-clinging fabric will do that job perfectly, this type of material keeps its shape after getting wet. Double-lined swimsuits will do the trick as well. Take into consideration that many fashionable swimsuits are made out of fabrics that are not quick-dry, which can be uncomfortable.


 Guide To Picking The Right Swimwear For You

Swimwear style

After knowing how to pick the right quality, it is time to talk more about swimwear style. It is a fact that not all bodies can fit into all styles, so first identify your body type, then choose what will compliment your beautiful curves. If you have a smaller bust, then padded styles, triangle bikini tops, horizontal stripes, and ruffles will add volume on top. Otherwise, with a busty figure, a halter neckline, V-neckline one piece, and bra-style swimsuit will enhance and smoothen up your overall look. Sometimes it is better to try on different styles in the shops, even if you will end up buying online because women’s bodies have more natural variations than what guides can provide; for example, it is known that lower rise cuts or rings on the side give the hips a smaller impression, but that will not work for one in ten women.

Swimwear color

Colors make a huge difference in swimming suits. It can make a new style look flattering on you and can adjust certain body variations, like minimizing hips by wearing dark bottoms and lighter tops.



The most important thing when you are shopping for swimwear is comfort. Whether you want more or less coverage, the above guidelines will help you pick a good long-lasting swimwear that will support your body, especially when it gets wet. Don’t pick one just because it looks good, because choosing the wrong swimwear can spoil all the fun you could have had under the sun.
