Are your upcoming summer plans rapidly approaching, but the thought of it makes you cringe? I’m right there with ya sister! Time has escaped me… I’ve cheated on my diet and have not been loyal to my treadmill as originally intended. But there’s hope for us yet! I have a few tricks up my sleeve that will help make the most of what we’ve got.
First and foremost, suit your shape. Knowing what styles flatter your frame is crucial. Play up your attributes and de-emphasize your trouble spots. Or in other words, work what your mama gave ya!
If you’re small upstairs: Add dimension with fringe and ruffles to your top. Embellishments pump up the volume, creating an optical illusion of fullness. Triangle tops, plenty of padding, demi cups, and horizontal lines are your new BFF. These styles help to make the bust appear fuller.
If you have a bit of a belly: Draw attention to the narrowest part of your body with a belted one piece. A cinched waist creates sexy curves and detours from areas that are less flattering. A tankini or cami will help camouflage trouble spots. As always, black and dark colored solids are slimming miracle workers.
If you have a bigger booty: To help balance a larger behind try a plunging neckline, drawing attention to your upper half, which balances your body. Boy shorts are a great option for more coverage. Also, selecting dark bottoms with a lighter top helps to play down a curvy caboose.
If you’re busty: A v-neck is your new partner in crime. A v-neckline style shows just the right amount of cleavage, elongates the neck and minimizes the fullness of the chest. Look for thick straps or a halter top to keep the girls in place. Avoid spaghetti straps or strapless tops at all costs (they do not provide enough support). To best secure your assets, look for tops with underwire.
Once you’ve found the perfect swimwear, it’s time to focus on your physique. If you can’t tone it, tan it (with a self tanner of course)! Apply your favorite self tanning lotion all over the body. Make sure to pay close attention to the inner and outer thighs and tummy for a svelte silhouette. Finish off your hot lil’ bod by spritzing NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi Shimmer Dry Oil – Golden Shimmer Spray generously for a radiant bronzed glow.
Now there’s absolutely no excuse to pass on a last minute invite to the beach or pool party this summer!
