Suns Out Buns Out … Swimsuit Shopping!

Suns Out Buns Out … Swimsuit Shopping!

Suns Out Guns Out? More like Suns Out BUNS Out (this year) … Have ya’ll noticed some of the trends lately? (1) High-cut (um who wants your swimsuit cut up so high that your muffin top comes out the bottom? No thanks). (2) Itty bitty scrunch butt (Lord, I can barely fit my junk in a full-size bottom!) (3) Side boob swimsuits (enough said). (4) Bandage style (I prefer NOT to look like I’m still wearing the same swimsuit … WHEN I TAKE IT OFF. Those tan lines are FOR REAL ya’ll)!

Nothing causes us [women] to break out in hives quicker than realizing we are upon ….. I’ll just say it …. swimsuit season. It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 10 or a 2 … we ALL have areas of our bodies that we would like to replace, and the sheer thought of unzipping our skinny jeans to replace them with, well, basically underwear for the world to see is – simply put – terrifying.

With that said, I’ve done my fair share of swimsuit shopping … near, afar, in person and online. So I’ve come up with a few of my favorite breakout performers, and then, some that are tried & true and sure to flatter.

Hope you enjoy my “research” …. 🙂

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 9.56.22 PM PROS: I’ve found this style to be super flattering on several body types! CONS: The tan line is serious.

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 9.59.07 PMPROS: I’m kinda loving these vintage-style swimsuits. Sexy yet conservative. CONS: Looks best on the long and lean ladies 🙂 And no cup support on front (uniboob action).

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 10.06.11 PM PROS: I’m a sucker for stripes. I feel like big, bold stripes are flattering. This is a fresh look for the sporty gals! CONS: Farmer’s tan potential for SURE! ha!

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 10.11.46 PMPROS: This is my PERSONAL current favorite from my closet. LSpace makes a quality and flattering suit! And I feel like the illusion of the vertical fringe is flattering and elongates! CONS: I feel like the fringe look is on the way out. But oh well! I’ll enjoy it this year for sure!

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 10.20.32 PM PROS: Very trendy and eye-catching! Love this color (it comes in other colors). CONS: Very fashion-forward and it takes a fearless lady to pull this off!

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 10.26.21 PMPROS: This is kind of a mom’s best friend. On the border of being “too much,” but acceptable as a momsuit! It seems to be forgiving in the areas that most “moms” hate … yet shows some skin on our smallest stomach section! CONS: While this is considered appropriate for our age …. our parents would still probably cringe if you wear this in their presence 🙂

Hope I’ve given you some inspiration! Happy Shopping!
