Women in swimsuits

Best bathing suit for your body type?

Jun 13, 2020

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

It’s finally summer! We know as far as the pandemic is concerned, we aren’t out of the woods yet, but some time spent in the sun certainly helps you feel better. Whether you are in your backyard, at the beach, or poolside, we really hope you can take some downtime to enjoy this short season! Now let’s get right to it:

WHICH SWIMSUIT IS BEST FOR ME?

Do you have a figure like Kim Kardashian West? Beyoncé? Jennifer Aniston? Most women dread the process of trying to find a suit that fits, because each of us is unique. A size 8 that works for you might not work for me, simply because we have different body types. I mean seriously, is there anyone who likes to shop for swimsuits??? Not us! We figured since it’s one of our least favorite things to do, it might not be high on your list of happy times either! Here comes the good part: we created a YouTube video to help (link below). We talk about and demonstrate bathing suits that work well for various body types.

Alison doesn’t love the names commonly used for body types- “apple shaped”, “pear shaped”, “large chest”, etc., but she hasn’t had time to come up with more creative descriptions yet, so we will stick to those for the sake of time! We are here to solve your issues, not hurt feelings, but time’s a-wastin” and summer is flying by. 

CAN WE SEE AND SHOP BATHING SUITS FOR OUR BODY TYPE TOO?

Yes, most definitely! We want to make things as painless as possible, our goal is to always get you looking fab quickly so you can live your most stylish and fearless life, remember?!

Watch the video, read this blog post, and shop according to your body type. You can also shop for coverups, and there is a section for “matchy matchy” sets like Alison has too (see below).

One note: “Curvy” includes “figure 8 body types”. You may be a size 00 or a size 24W. We have included all of them. Figure 8, hourglass, you get the picture. Shoulders and hips the same size, with a smaller waist. 

Another note: if you are still struggling with your body type after watching the video, you can measure yourself, keeping in mind: 

Pear: sloped shoulders with shoulders narrower than hip

Curvy: see above

Boyish figure/Athletic build – no waist 

Apple: tummy with smaller arms and legs

IF WE NEED HELP, CAN WE REACH OUT?

Of course! Email alison@thestylethatbindsus.com. Let us know if a size has sold out (this is happening daily unfortunately, because of fewer pieces available due to factories being shut down during Covid, and time of year-we are already in June, etc.)

You can also set up a virtual style appointment with Alison. It’s less expensive than you think, and you save money in the long run!

Hope this helps! All you will need is your sunscreen and sunglasses and you’re ready to go!

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN YOU ARE TRULY BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT, NO MATTER WHAT SIZE OR SHAPE YOU ARE!
