Swimsuit - Scottsdale Living Magazine Spring 2012

What Swimsuit Suits You?

Not sure which swimsuit to buy? Or what would look great on your unique shape? Here are a few guidelines to keep in mind.


Full coverage and support is key. Curves are a beautiful, and the best way to show them off is to make sure they stay put. A full-coverage bottom and a bra top will highlight your bombshell body that will make other women green with envy.

Your goal is to create curves and interest. Ruffles and bottoms with a skirt will look great on you and will add the extra oomph you’ve been looking for. Or, try cut-outs; these will help create the illusion of curves. Own it; this trendy look is difficult to pull off.


It’s all about balance. A full-coverage bottom will give you the support you need for a “bootylicious” behind, and a ruffled top will give you some fluff upstairs.


Again, it’s all about balance. Although you need support up top, stay away from bra tops because they will make your shoulders look broader. Instead, look for a sportier-cut bikini, this way the girls are secure, and the halter-style top minimizes the shoulder area.
