How to choose the perfect swimsuit

Choose a bathing suit that fits your body type & your style.The backyard pool party season is here and you need a new swimsuit.

Sears Canada's Apparel Trend Manager, Sarah Chrystman, offers advice on how to choose a bathing suit - one piece or two - that looks great, feels comfortable and enhances your best features while minimizing those trouble areas waist, hips, tummy and bust.

"Knowing your own body shape can help you narrow down what looks best on you and takes away a lot of the stress associated with buying a new swimsuit," says Chrystman. It's just a matter of knowing what to look for to enhance your best features.

Shopping for the hottest and best fitting swimsuit is as easy as 1, 2, 3

The classic advice by fashion experts regarding swimsuits still holds true today, especially when it comes to choosing the best style and cut that flatters your own particular body shape:

Sears fashion experts have classified swimsuits into body type categories and have assigned each body type an icon.

  • A-Shape - These suits draw attention away from your hips.

  • I-Shape - These suits give you the illusion of a waistline, often with tummy control.

  • V-Shape - These suits play up your bust area.

  • X-Shape - These suits have a balanced effect whether due to pattern or cut.

  • Specialty Suits - These suits provide support and shaping for those with special requirements (e.g. long torso, post-mastectomy)

Make sure to measure your bust, waist, hips and torso correctly to get a bathing suit that fits well.

No matter what the fashionistas say, you know your body and style better than anyone. Look for construction details and styles that appeal to you. You are the one who will be wearing the bathing suit. Clothes that make you feel uncomfortable are never a good fashion statement.

Have fun!
