Halfway through July and I'm writing about finding a swimsuit? Well, whether you were waiting for the sales, or were invited to an impromptu pool party, or just haven't found the perfect suit yet, here are a few tips to take some of the frustration out of your search.
There is no such thing as the perfect swimsuit.
Take it from me- when it comes to swimwear, there's no such thing has having it all. A perfectly fitting suit might not come in your favorite color, and if you find a print that you can't live without, be prepared to take it in for a few alterations.
Don't be a penny pincher.
Most of us are on a budget, but swimwear is not the time to skimp. Spending a few extra dollars on a well-made suit won't only extend the life of your purchase, it will usually come with a more flattering fit and classic style.
Try on. Then try on some more.
There is probably nobody in the world that appreciates online shopping as much as I do. I hate, hate, hate trying on clothes. But when it comes to swimsuits, there is no substitute for trying them on. Set aside a few hours and hit the local mall. I've found that department stores are great first stops.
And last but not least...
Don't get discouraged! The right suit is waiting for you, now go find it :)
