Finding the Perfect Swimsuit

posted by on 2014.08.05, under Chriselle Inc.



As LA peaks past 90 degrees every day, I feel like this post has been a long time coming. It’s so important to find a suit that’s not only trendy, but above all, can help you look sexy and confident. The first step in finding the perfect swimsuit is to first find out your body type and then dress to flatter your body. I’ve listed out 5 of my favorite swim suits to help give you a better idea of a swimsuit that will flatter and enhance your body shape to maximize your confidence in the waters!

the Dynamic Two-Piece- Ruffled Bikini 

If you are the Athletic type, I would recommend getting a swim suit with volume. The ruffles in this bottom piece creates dimension and movement that can give the illusion of fuller hips.

the Vintage Two-Piece – Barrymore High Waist Bikini 

I absolutely love the vintage inspired design of this suit. A high waisted two piece is perfect in slimming your midriff because your waist begins at the slimmest part. The underwire in the top piece can also provide great chest support.

the Classic One Piece - Seafolly Goddess One Piece

I love a good classic swimsuit. It’s slimming and classy, and can create a nice silhouette for most body types!

the Long Sleeved Two-Piece – Vitamin A cropped Rashguard

I love this because it’s such a non-conventional swimsuit. The long sleeves is perfect for broad shoulders and I love the bold blue color!

the Classic Two-Piece- Triangl swimsuit 

The two piece swimsuit is another classic swimsuit that every girl should have in her closet. But be careful– this swimsuit provides the least coverage!

And there you have it, my fav 5 swimsuits for the different body types. Which one did you guys like the best?

Love this breakdown…I’ve been wearing high waisted bathing suits much of my adult life (my midsection is my least favorite part of my body). So good to hear the benefits of each swimsuit type!

I am in love with the classic one piece suit, so effortlessly perfect! Too bad I haven’t had a true beach day all summer— and probably won’t get the chance before school starts again! Ah well….

The first one is so fun and flirty; the long sleeve one is perfection, so different; and Triangle swimwear gives me life! C x

I love that high waisted bathing suit! I find that silhouette is so flattering most of the time! And the print on this one is absolutely wonderful.

Thanks for sharing Chriselle!
