Follow These 7 Lean Style Tips

Swimsuit shopping could possibly be the most (or only) dreaded thing about the summertime. As fashionable and diverse the options, how do you find the perfect suit that doesn't draw attention to areas of your physique you would rather not highlight?

Well, these 7 lean style tips should definitely point you in the right direction:

Fall In Love With The Halter Strap

Thick halter-style straps naturally draw the eye upwards and tapers your torso, creating the illusion of a slimmer physique. Plus, it highlights your shoulders, which are typically a slim part of most women’s bodies.

Plunging Neckline

Want to show a little skin without wearing a two-piece? Opt for a plunging neckline on an otherwise modest one-piece, which is extremely flattering (and every bit as sexy as a skimpy bikini.) A plunging halter neckline elongates the body and keeps attention on your upper half.

Welcome Tropical Prints, Peplum And The Beloved Sweetheart Neckline

Peplum styling detail both flatters and lengthens your bodice. A sweetheart neckline both supports and enhances the bustline. This couldn't be more perfect for those of you looking for a little extra boost on top!

Be Bold And Beautiful In Bright Solids

There’s no need to stick to your basic black bathing suit. Bright solids can also be quite slimming. It has the look-at-me confidence of an Itsy Bitsy bikini with less exposure. Look for bolder neon shades when you’re already tan, and primary colors for lighter skin tones.

You CAN Too Look FABULOUS In A Bikini! 

Never think you can't rock a bikini! If you still have doubts, look for the most flattering option. Opt for a retro style that features a high waist so that you're only showing a chic sliver of skin at the slimmest part of your midsection.

The high-waisted bottom creates a slimming look, while the pin up polka dot bustier swim top with adjustable straps and padding inserts gives you complete control of your "boost" level.
