Question 1: Body Types
Natty Styles: As women, we've all got such different bodies! What are some tips for finding swimwear based on our body type?
Heather Carlos: To avoid that scenario of you in the dressing room with a pile of rejected swim suits and an overwhelming urge to just throw on a mumu to your next beach or pool destination, the best advice I can give is to know your body type and stick to the shapes that best “suit” your type:
Support and coverage in the right places is key! Retro suits are all the rage now and with their bustier tops and sexy ruched silloutes, you can show off your curves, while still keeping everything in its place.
With its ruched center and underwire cups, this suit forms the perfect hourglass shape.
A hidden underwire bra in this one piece give the perfect support without looking like a bra, while a higher cut leg elongates.
