Swim Suits are next to dresses on my list when it comes to finding the perfect fit for my body. They are always either way too big or extremely small –it is SO hard to find something in between! I am such a fan of online shopping, so I thought I would give y’all some tips on how to choose the perfect suit!
1.] READ REVIEWS
Read, read, read! I go through at least 10 reviews before I decide if the bathing suit sounds right for my body. We are all different shapes and sizes and not every brand fits the same. I love when there are photos of a curvy girl wearing a swim suit [body positivity right here] so that when I view it, I can see how it truly fits and not just on a size 2 model. When reading reviews, I also like to find out how the suit holds up. There are a lot of online stores that are crazy cheap and it is possible to find a good quality suit!
2.] REVIEW THE RETURN POLICY
Bathing suits are notorious for not fitting on the first try. From the variables of body type, support, style, material, and coverage, it’s always better to be on the safe side and check the site for the return policy. You are looking for a FULL refund because chances are you will have to return it if you haven’t purchased from the site before.
3.] ORDER TWO SIZES
I always order two sizes [unless the return policy does not allow a full refund] if I haven’t purchased from the site before. It is always better to have options so that you can see how each suit fits and you can decide what works for your body.
4.] USE THE MEASUREMENTS
Nine times out of ten, the measurements on the website are correct. If you ever doubt how the sizing is on a certain site when you normally order a specific size such as a large, look up the measurements. Make sure you do this for each suit because a lot of times, different suits are completely different measurements from one another.
5.] BE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN
It is SO important that you feel comfortable in what your wearing. Order bathing suits that make you feel good and feel sexy. If you receive the suit and hate it, send it back ASAP! There are always so many trending suits, and sometimes they look good on, but you don’t feel good in it. Be yourself and comfortable in your own skin!
