It’s inevitable that as soon as summer is here, then it’s swimsuit season. Sometimes it’s difficult to find a flattering, comfortable swimsuit. So, I asked my team to share what swimsuits they find comfy and the most flattering for their body type. Also, I wanted to share what I wear and why. Here are some tips on what we all wear and what works best for Team SOS. Aimee:
Body Type: Slim
Preferred Style: One Piece, High Waisted Bottoms
Why: If you’ve seen my Instagram then you know I like high-waisted bikinis and one pieces. Why? Well, I think they’re super flattering especially for my body type. They’re also quite forgiving since you guys know how much I love to eat (especially my coconut chocolate balls). Also, they’re the most comfortable for me and high waisted bottoms are flattering for my butt. A lot of bottoms give granny butts, but I like when my cheeks show a little because I have a smaller butt.
My Picks: Solid and Striped Polka Dot One Piece (I recently got this in an unboxing), Frankie’s Bikini One Piece Swimsuit, Midsommar Swim Gingham Bikini
Body Type: Wide Hip Area, No Boobs
Preferred Style: Cheeky
Why: Bandeau-style bikini tops and high-rise bikini bottoms are my go-to. Since I am more flat-chested, I like to draw attention to the lower half of my body. A bandeau-style bikini top is great because it feels like a crop top. I feel the most comfortable when it’s paired with a cheeky bottom. Also, I like to wear a button down as a cover up over my bikini.
My Picks: Solid and Striped Shirt Swimsuit (bikini version here), Frankie’s Bikinis Alana Bikini, Midsommar Swim High Waisted Bikini Bottoms
Body Type: Slim
Preferred Style: Any
Why: I’m pretty comfortable with my body. Granted it took me awhile to accept the skin I’m in, but I did. With that being said, I still have my moments. I like to leave more to the imagination, so I’m all about the fabric being comfortable and my more intimate areas to be FULLY covered. This can be done in a one piece, high waisted bottoms, and even a bikini.
My Picks: Solid and Striped x Re/done Black One Piece (bikini version here), Frankie’s Bikinis Greer Bikini, Midsommar Swim Gingham Swimsuit
Body Type: Petite, Bigger Chest
Preferred Style: One Pieces and Bikinis
Why: I’m not a fan of high waisted bikinis because they make me look even shorter than I am. I think a low back one piece that shows off your sides is a little understated sexy. Plus, one pieces make me look taller. I like bikinis too just because I don’t think you can’t go wrong with a classic silhouette.
