Choose a Fitting Swim Suit

When you are buying a bodysuit, select one that suits the shape of your body. The many body types include hourglass, pear, apple, and straight shape. Your swim should be comfortable and make you feel confident. It should also reflect your style. As a lady, whether your hips are large or have a flat bust, swimwear fits you well.

For full-busted females, a halter bra having a band under your bust will fit perfectly. The swimwear should also have wider straps that you can tie behind your neck. The neckline can be V-shaped to flatten your large bust, giving you a beautiful silhouette naturally.

Suppose you are a female with a small bust, select pushups, and underwire bras. Horizontal stripes also give you volume on top. When buying a swimsuit, you should avoid the lure to buy one that one size up. You should buy your exact size. The correct-sized swimwear will give an illusion that you are smaller than you are.

Prioritize Your Comfort

When trying on a swimsuit, keep your attention on how you feel in it. Your swimwear should not make you feel confident and not self-conscious. It should make you feel comfortable.

You also avoid a swimsuit sold as a set. A different set of swimwear allows you to select different sizes for the bra and bottom. Also, keep in mind that bathing suits usually have smaller sizes compared to regular clothing. Therefore, if you see a bigger one, don’t be afraid to select that.

Consider the Swimwear Purpose

You may buy a swimsuit for various purposes. For instance, you may intend to go sunbathing, surfing, or paddling. It would be best if you chose a swimsuit that supports your intended activities.

Consider Quality

How would you determine a bikini quality? Check the compression, fabric stretch, and stitching. Thin material can get baggy once you hit the water. It’s also best if the fabric is thick to avoid the see-through effect when you get into the water.

A piece of stretchy fabric is good, too, since it makes the swimwear fitting. Before buying a swimsuit, you should try it on. When trying, move side to side, bend, adjust your straps, ensure it does not dig up your hips, and ensure it is not see-through.

Buy a Swimwear That Compliments Your Skin Color

It’s best if you choose swimwear that compliments your skin tone. A colorful bathing suit can complement you even if you are pale-skinned. For fair complexions, the blue color matches well.

Color can also hide some prominent body parts. For instance, you can mix a dark-colored bottom and a light-colored top to minimize your bottom size.

You can search for swimwear online in Australia and get bathing suits that perfectly complement you. When doing so, chose what fits, prioritize your comfort, consider quality, and buy one that compliments your skin tone.

Style Icon: Karen Huger

Back to the stylish Karen Huger. This woman has an amazing sense of fashion; her personal style is fabulous and she nails it every time. I love watching her on The Real Housewives of Protomac because I am sure I would be inspired by her outfits. This woman has great charisma and she makes everything she wears stand out. She doesn’t have to try too hard to be stylish, she does it effortlessly.

Karen Huger had an interview with Paper Magazine not too long ago and she spoke about her personal style and how it has evolved in the last few years. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

My style is and has always been classic elegance with a modern twist,” Karen explained. “While I remained true to my everyday which simple fashion throughout this season, I definitely took my fashion sensibility above and beyond. I sprinkled more couture purses, dresses, and wraps throughout the season. The couture addition took my fashion to the next level.” 

The couture addition has definitely taken her fashion to the next level. I love how couture accessories a lot. They finish up her looks nicely.

What do you think of Karen Huger as a Style Icon?

 

What is fashion and am I fashionable?

What is fashion? That can be defined in many different ways. I see fashion as modern/change, which isn’t surprising as the French word for fashion is La Mo, which is the short form of la modernité, which also means modernity. Fashion is what we see on the high street, the fashion magazines, the top designer stores, and on the runaway. It changes every season and to stay on top of fashion means to literally keep updating your wardrobe with every new collection that pops up. How possible is that especially now with all that we have going on?

Are we supposed to focus on fashion or style?

To be honest, I have never really been fashionable. Instead, I prefer having a capsule wardrobe that shows off my personal style. I stick to my personal style and not to the dictates of the never-ending fashion industry. Like many things, it takes a while to find your sweet spot but you know it once you find it. Being fashionable will clearly put many of us in debt, struggling to keep up with credit card payments and even store card payments. It amazes me every time when I am offered a store card for a fashion store. Why would I want to buy clothes on credit only for them to be out of season in a few months? That makes no sense. Now don’t get me wrong, I love looking good and I like to invest in my clothing and accessories, so I don’t have to keep shopping every few months. I also love spoiling myself and I have a lovely closet with more items I can count but I only shop for things I need. Going along with what is considered fashionable would be a waste.

How do you see fashion?

According to the editorial policy of Fashion Theory: The Journal of Dress, Body & Culture on Fashion History Love to Know Website, fashion is defined as “the cultural construction of the embodied identity.” Do you agree with this definition? How do you see fashion and would you call yourself fashionable?
