There are many women out there who have a great body and are looking to get into a sexy bikini. The problem is, they sometimes run into bikinis that are ill-fitting, less than flattering and not very supportive. If this is happening to you, take some time to read this article and get some tips on selecting the right swimsuits for your full figure body.
Among the many styles of swimwear on the market, there are full figure friendly bikinis. These bikinis are often times thrown into the mix with the other bikinis and sometimes get overlooked. Use the tips below to select a bikini that will look and feel great.
Focus on Support and Comfort
One of the first things you should focus on is supporting your chest. Not only is this better for your back and other parts of your body but it also looks better. Think about it, when you look in the mirror after trying on a bikini that looks less than fabulous – one of the first things that you will probably notice is the breasts are sagging and therefore making your stomach look shorter. When this happens, everything else, proportionally-wise, is thrown out of whack.
So what does this all mean? Steer clear of string bikinis if you are larger upstairs. Not only will you run the risk of spilling out of the string bikini on all sides, you will also have an unflattering frumpy look. On top of that, the string bikini straps will cut into your skin. This is especially horrible when the strap ties around the neck – as most string bikinis do.
Do, however, choose a bikini that has supportive underwire cups. You will be amazed at how wonderfully perky your bust line will be after slipping into a full figured, underwire bikini! One of the biggest worries women have when selecting an underwire bikini is that it will look like they are wearing a bra. This is farther from the truth and a good quality underwire bikini will never have the appearance of a bra. In fact, many women prefer underwire bikini tops to ensure they get the support they need while keeping everything in place – even if they might not need it.
If you are completely against underwire bikinis then consider a thick band halter top bikini style. This still gives you the support you need while getting rid of the underwire. This is a great option for women who can not where underwired garments or simply feel too uncomfortable in them. Halter style bikini tops will do wonders for your bustline as well.
Full Figured Bikini Bottoms
So we talked about what we should look for in the top? Full figure bikinis can address a lot of different areas. If you are full figured in the bottom portion of your body, you have a few different styles that will minimize as well as accentuate your curves.
One of the most popular full figured bottoms on the market are those with a thick, supportive band. This is great for women who might have a little bit of a belly or even for the many women who have the "lower pouch" most often courty of having a child. The thicker band helps keep everything tight creating a sleek and trim look. There are also bikini that are band bikinis which has an extra layer of material sewn so you are able to extend it upward all the way or somewhere in between.
Like many apparel tips, if you are trying to make the lower half of the body appear slimmer, you might want to try pairing up a dark, solid colored bottom with a print top. This will help draw the attention upward instead of lower.
In order to get the perfect look, you need to know what type of body you have. A full figured bikini is just as sexy as a string bikini or any other style. The best part about it is that you will not only look fabulous but you will be comfortable as well.
