Hello 1st day of SUMMER!!! Today I’m talking swimwear! And all the ladies said “Ughhh!” I personally don’t know anyone that says they absolutely love trying on swimsuits. It may not be our favorite thing to do but there are a few things you can do to make the process better.
Tip #1 for making the swimsuit try on process less dreadful…Try them on at home. Whether you order online or pick a few up in store, try them on in the comfort of your house. Why? Because have you seen dressing room lighting? It highlights things that aren’t even there. Plus you will just feel more comfortable and not have the sales people pressuring you to buy something. We’ve all had that experience.
Tip #2… Try a few different styles. Many times we stick to the same styles because we think, why reinvent the wheel? We also don’t want to try on a million different items. I would challenge you to try at least 3 different styles and you never know, you may find one you thought you would never wear.
Tip #3… Choose a bright color. I think sometimes many women opt for black because they think it’s slimming. If this is your tendency, find a swimsuit in your favorite color and see how it makes you feel. Everyone wants to feel good in a swimsuit and who doesn’t feel good in their favorite color.
Tip #4… Mix and match. If you wear a lot of two piece swimsuits, don’t be afraid to mix and match your pieces. I am bigger on the bottom than I am up top so a lot of the teeny tiny bottoms don’t work for me. (I’m not really comfortable with letting it all hang out.) So I find a flattering bottom that goes with the top and then I have a one of a kind swimsuit!
Tip #5… Be willing to spend a little $$$ on one good swimsuit. There is something about the more expensive swimsuits, they just fit better. I usually buy one really nice swimsuit (this year was #3 below) every summer and replenish my collection with a couple of inexpensive items. We go to the lake a lot and your swimsuits get gross so I wear one that I don’t mind messing up and save my nicer swimsuits for the pool or beach.
Tip #6… Be confident and remember that we are our own worst critics. The thoughts running through your head on how you think people see you are most likely not running through their heads. They are probably worried about how they look. Just have fun and be confident in who you are!

I hope you all have a great first day of summer!!!!
