Finding a perfect swimsuit is like finding the perfect jean. It’s rare; feels impossible sometimes, but once it happens it’s such a magical feeling. I can't just go to forever 21, or h&m and purchase one. I used to only purchase online, but the problem with online is sometimes I would luck up and sometimes I would fail miserably. I finally found one store that has swim suits that fit girls who were more on the curvaceous side, and that store is Aerie.
I first saw a few blogger friends rocking Aerie swim suits and decided to take a chance. Upon visiting the store, I found myself surprised about their products. Aerie had not only trendy, but also cute swimsuits that actually flattered me. Their swimsuits are not exactly for women on the more conservative side, instead they lean more so toward the woman who openly embraces her curves, no matter big or small, and doesn’t mind showing them off. The best part about Aerie is the price range. You receive merchandise made of great quality material for only 20-40 dollars. You can’t beat that!!!
If you are a online shopper, a few other places to take a look at thought I have purchased from in the past. A few swim wear sites with decent prices include Asos, Amazon, Icon Swim
Fig leaves, Andrea iyamah, Khongboon Swimwear, and River Island
When it comes to picking out swimwear that will be the most flattering on you, this may take some real work. If you have any type of love handles or hips stay away from low rise swim bottoms. Far away! All they do is emphasize problem areas by giving you a muffin top and actually makes you look bigger then you actually are. Who wants that? Stick to high rise or mid rise bottoms. High rise is better because it flattens your love handles and stomach and shows off your waist line. Now, let’s move on to tops. If your girls sit up at attention without a bra you are blessed and you should thank God daily. That being said, you could try swimsuits that don’t have an actual wire or cup if you like. Swimsuits that cut and give you a little side or underneath boob action is fine for you. Don’t feel like you can’t show your girls off. People pay a lot of money to have what you are born with. Now if you need the extra support, which most of the world does, look for tops that have actual cups or wires to have the girls sitting! When you pull the girls up this only makes your waist look smaller which gives you that hour glass look that everyone is looking for
Now for my small girls out there you also need to thank God because you can pretty much wear what you like and can shop low and high end. H&M has a lot of cute swim suits this season you all should check out for great prices
I hope this helps anyone looking to purchase swimsuits right now. Let me know in the comments where your favorite places are to shop for swim so we can help each other out.
