It’s time again for the yearly event that encourages women to join the gym, diet, layer on self-tanner, and submit to the pain of bikini waxes – the anxiety of finding the perfect bathing suit! It is easy to find a triangle bikini or flimsy one piece anywhere you go, but for women with curves and full busts it is harder to find swimwear.
The best style of bathing suit for women with larger chests is one that provides full coverage and support. Knickers of Hyde Park offers fashionable swimwear styles ranging anywhere from 30D to 34H that are comparable to the styles seen on catwalks and celebrities.
Here are some simple tips for you to keep in mind when searching for the perfect suit. Whether you are curvy, boyish, bottom heavy or something in between, this guide will help you find the most flattering bathing suits for your body type:
-Just like a bra, start with a perfect fit from an experienced lingerie professional. For women with larger busts, underwire is very important for support and lift. A snug band and perfect fit size cup with underwire can be a wonderful solution for those a little extra curvy. Knickers of Hyde Park has a great selection of suits in 2 pc bikini and tankini styles. With swim top styles ranging from bandeau, halter, balcony and tankini. Most styles with underwire that are flattering, supportive, sexy and provide just enough coverage to give you confidence for sun, surf and swim.
-Know the right patterns for your body style. Bright colors and wild patterns are always popular in swimwear, but for fuller figured ladies, solid colors and geometric patterns are the best bet. Solids give your body a sleek silhouette and geometric patterns counter fullness and width of the body. If you want to minimize, choose darker colors and see the slimming effect.
– Two words: Banded halter. The banded halter top is a great shape that offers coverage and support without the sometimes more obvious outline of an underwire. It is important to have a thicker, double stitched band that goes around the body directly under the bust line. Stay away from the string halters and go with a slightly thicker strap.
-Choose a fabric carefully. Tight fitting fabric, like Lycra or nylon, may sound scary but with the right style can lift breasts and make the body look leaner all over. The tight elasticity of the fabric squeezes your trouble areas in and lifts the body, making you look thinner, smoother and fit.
The trick to finding the perfect swimwear is balance. You want your bottom and top halves to balance out and look proportional. Humans love symmetry, so a balanced body is the most universally pleasing aesthetic for the eye. Come to Knickers of Hyde Park and we will find the perfect suit for you!
For best maintenance, do not machine wash your swimwear. You are dealing with synthetic, delicate fabrics that get beaten up by salt water, chlorine, sunscreen and sand. Treat your swimwear carefully so that it keeps its shape, elasticity and fit for more than one season. It is best to wash with a specialty swimwear or lingerie detergent in cold water and lay flat to dry, much like you care for your favorite lingerie.
