Tips for Finding the Right Fit
Shopping online makes finding the perfect fit a little harder but it is not impossible. You can look at many stores while saving on the travel time and the trauma of the change room.
- Know your measurements before you start shopping. Get out the tape measure and a piece of paper and take your bust, waist, and hip measurements. Some websites even allow for torso length.
- For every shop you visit online the first place you should check is their size chart then their style selection. Not all size charts are the same for every retailer.
- Know your shape. If you are a pear shape than you will benefit from two piece suits where you can buy a different size top and top. If you are an apple then a suit with a waist shaper would be of benefit. If you are heavier on top you will need more coverage and support. If your bust and hips are symmetrical then a one piece will accentuate the curves. A swimsuit is not just a swimsuit. Read the items descriptions for hints on what will work for your body.
- Do not discount the miracle of underwire! It gives a wonderful shape to a heavy breast. And they usually don’t fit like a bra so don’t be afraid.
