Trendy Swimsuits Styles in 2019
Your body is one-of-a-kind. Your curves, contour, and shape are unique only to you. The right swimwear that can highlight the features you want to flaunt or downplay those you wish to understate. It can make you feel sexy and confident whether you’re lounging at the pool, swimming at sea, or tanning by the lake.
With the variety of swimsuits specially designed for curvy women available in the market today, you can take your pick. Of course, with the sheer number of options you are faced with, it may be a challenging decision.
Here are some of the hot trends in swimsuits for women today, as well as a few tips on choosing the ideal bathing suit for you.
Styles of Swimwear
The most popular trend in swimwear right now is the classic, retro look ― but with a modern twist. Whether in a bikini or a one-piece, clean, classic lines with added ruffles, shearing, or a scalloped edge for a touch of whimsy are the big things today. Overall, buying a swimsuit is about finding a swimsuit that reflects what is unique about yourself and that you feel comfortable and confident wearing.
Swimsuit Trends for Plus-Sized Women
Ruffles are a whimsical and playful addition to any outfit. On a swimsuit, however, they are more than just dainty embellishments. Ruffles can add volume to narrower areas and add balance to your shoulder-to-hip ratio.
Shirring, whether on swimsuit tops or bottoms can create a slimming effect, or alternatively make narrower areas look fuller — depending on the shirring style and position. A one-piece that’s shirred around the waist or on the sides can create the illusion of an hourglass figure. Vertical shirring on the bust area can create a fuller look. Shirring on the back of bikini bottoms can give your posterior more definition.
- Swim Dress
A swim dress is the combination of a minidress and a one-piece bathing suit. It has a skirted bottom that goes over a brief for greater thigh coverage. Women with hourglass figures can really rock the figure-hugging swim dress, but well-chosen accents can make this style work for anyone. Strategically-adopted ruffles can help accentuate your better features, and an A-line-cut swim dress can slim the waist down while making hips appear fuller.
Off-the-shoulder tops can provide balance to your silhouette. It makes the shoulders look broader and the bust fuller. This style also works well when accented by long, flowing ruffles.
- Sweetheart Neckline
A sweetheart neckline can add definition to your upper body for a more proportioned silhouette. This style can also provide additional bust support for fuller-figured women.
Bra-type swimsuits with underwire support can give an extra lift, playing up the bust and shoulders for a more balanced look and offering enhanced bust support.
High-neck tankinis and swim dresses can balance proportions and enhance your silhouette. They can be worn with a high-cut bottom to add volume to the hips. One-piece swimsuits with a high neckline and belted waist can provide additional definition to the waistline.
- Plunging Neckline
A swimsuit with a plunging neckline is a sexy number that plays up your curves and draws attention to the right areas. It can be used to enhance your silhouette or to elongate the torso and arms. You can create the illusion of a plunging neckline with a mesh insert strategically placed into a high-neckline suit for the best of both worlds.
The versatile tankini can be paired with any bottom to create a flattering look for anyone. They can be used to highlight the hips or to draw in the waist while emphasizing the bust and hips.
- High-Waist Bottoms
High-waist bottoms can sculpt a body and provide a slimming effect. This style can also add definition to the hips and the waist.
- High-Cut (or High-Leg) Bottoms
High-cut bottoms enhance the curves of most body types. This trendy bottom can be used to create a more defined silhouette. Extremely high cuts with wide shoulder straps can accentuate the hips and buttocks, while a more moderate cut can create an elongated leg line and balance overall proportions.
Tips On Choosing Your Swimwear
- Take your measurements.
- Use your old swimsuits as a reference point. Use pieces that worked well with you in the past as a guide to determine what styles to go with on your next purchase.
- Prioritize support. The right support, whether it be an underwire or two-layered top, can offer curvy ladies the right lift.
- Select swimwear that makes you feel good. It’s not just about style — it’s also about the comfort and confidence that a bathing suit can offer you.
- Experiment. Trends are transient. You don’t have to stick to what’s in to find the right swimsuit. If you manage to get your hands on a piece that fits you to a tee (whether it’s in vogue or not), then by all means, rock that suit.
Finding The Right Fit
Finding the right fit is essential when buying new swimwear. Ask yourself questions like: ‘Is it comfortable?‘ ‘Does it support well?’ And, of course, most importantly, ‘Do I love it? Is it “me”?’ Like the rest of your wardrobe, your swimwear should both meet its requirements and reflect your personality.
It may be challenging to find high-quality, flattering swimsuits for low prices; however, the cost does not determine comfort and appeal. Finding a style that suits you and a material that’s equal parts comfortable and flattering is far more valuable.
The most important aspect of finding that perfect swimsuit for you is finding the right store, one that values the life experiences of all women and is dedicated to providing you with a memorable experience for all the right reasons. You need to select a swimwear store that dedicates itself to meeting your needs.
