Does the thought of buying swimwear make you break out into a cold sweat? Let’s talk about purchasing swimwear online, would you ever?
It's daunting facing up to our bodies and our perceived imperfections but when you're armed with a few swimwear guidelines I promise it will be easier. Today we are spoiled for choice but there's swimwear and then there's quality swimwear, with that in mind what should you be looking for when purchasing swimwear online
Tips for purchasing swinwear online
When purchasing swimwear online always check the size guide tab and know your measurements. Don't be afraid to send online stores an email if you have any enquiries, and always use the zoom to really check the swimsuit for features.
It pays to always read and understand the returns policy too, if you tick a box at checkout or just process a purchase then you are agreeing to the online store terms and conditions
What to look for in swimwear
Features should offer benefits, and there's plenty out there for curvy and plus size bods like power mesh to pull in your tum or draping to camouflage problem areas. It’s features like these that will help you forget about your worries and hit the beach or pool with confidence.
A high leg line will make your legs look longer but a mid-rise will flatter every time.
A retro skirt gives confidence and provide modesty, plus they are super cute and playful.
Adjustable straps are essential if you are taller to prevent camel toe, adjustable straps also give you extra control over where your breasts sit. Win, win!
In my experience if I buy cheap swimwear chances are it will be saggy and loose in all the wrong places half way through my summer. Uhuh, we've all been there!
There’s lots on offer for breast support, like underwire, a shelf bra and wider straps, removable straps, and a crossover is a girl’s best friend.
A black cozzie is always going to be chic!
Sometimes we need to step out of our comfort zone and try colour and print, not only for the fun factor but it can camouflage lumps ‘n bumps.
How to look after your swimwear
Once you have your new cozzie treat it with a little TLC rinsing after use in cool water, lay it flat in the shade to dry and don't wring or stretch it or leave it wrapped in a wet towel for days. When travelling always pack a couple of cossies to let one set rest and dry properly in between uses. A little care goes a long way.
There you have it, I hope this post will help you to get the perfect swimwear and remember...it's just a swimsuit so have fun!
