So many people don’t put as much effort into choosing swimwear as they do when choosing underwear. This can be a mistake, especially when you consider the majority of people will not be able to see your lingerie, whereas a lot of people are going to see you in your swimsuit. Therefore, taking the time to ensure your swimming costume fits and suits you well and you have all the accessories you need, is incredibly important.
Below are 5 useful tips that will help you successfully pick out the best costumes to wear on holiday, whether lazing on the beach or by the pool or doing laps in the pool and playing volleyball on the beach.
Even if you know all your sizes, it is still crucial you try on swimming costumes before making the purchase. So many sizes will differ depending on what store you are shopping in, or even on the style of the costume, so you should never be overly confident that you do, in fact, know your size. Trying before you buy, especially if you take a friend, family member or partner with you, will also ensure the swimwear you buy is the most flattering on you.
To ensure you have a range of costumes for your holiday, it is a good idea to buy a few separate pieces. This will allow you to mix and match throughout your holiday, without the need to spend tons of money on multiple costumes. You will be able to not only mix colours but styles as well, so you can adapt your costume depending on the mood you are in and how you are feeling about your body.
For instance, if you feel a bit body conscious one morning, you can wear normal bikini bottoms but with a tankini top, or a normal bikini top with short brief bottoms. If you have a great selection, you will find you’re never at a swimsuit loss.
Holiday activities can vary greatly so you need to consider what you will be doing throughout the day, each morning you get dressed and then plan your swimsuit accordingly. For instance, if you are having a lazy day by the pool, you may just wish to wear your smallest bikini, whereas if you plan to play Frisbee or volleyball on the beach, you may wish to wear shorts and a firmer bikini top to give yourself a bit more support.
Many people stick to black because this tends to be the safest option and makes people feel the most comfortable. However, it is also very boring to stick only to black. Try to have a variety of costume colours but be warned you will need to check they suit your body tone before you buy them. For instance, if you are very pale skinned, you may wish to avoid brilliantly bright colours as these can look very unflattering on your skin tone.
It’s generally a good idea to leave wearing bright colours and white costumes till the end of your holiday, when your tan will be at its best, although some people will have skin tones that can get away with this. Most people, however, would do well to start off their holiday with costumes that are a bit darker in colour, such as browns, purples, dark blues and greens.
Everyone has off days when they really don’t want to be stripping off in front of everyone beside the pool or on the beach. It is therefore really worth buying a few cover-up items of clothing, such as sarongs, kaftans, beach dresses and even camisoles. These can also help you when you start feeling a bit sun-burnt but don’t wish to go inside just yet.
Alternatively they are a good option for when you’ve been sunbathing but wish to go into a restaurant for lunch without having to go back to the hotel to change. They are, therefore, the perfect quick way to cover-up; they look good and also ensure you don’t ever have to waste time and miss any part of your holiday.
