We have to face the obvious, ladies. Yes, our figures were “hot” and “sexy” at one time but somewhere between before and now that gorgeous shape lost its sizzle. Child bearing years stretched that perfect contour; as did weight gain; in some cases little or no exercise left the body un-toned; and let’s not forget… each year does take a toll on our bodies!
That being said, making a trip to our favorite store and finding a flattering swimsuit is a major challenge. Let’s be real, those adorable “itsy-bitsy,” “teeny-weeny,” bikinis that we used to wear are in most cases out of the question today. In addition to the barely there skimpy suits are the plunge front and back numbers that leave little to the imagination, especially the ripple effect that has somehow appeared in layers down our sides and our backs. Another that not too many can wear is the waist high-leg cuts that successfully provide more attention to our cellulite thighs which overnight made an appearance down our legs. So what do we do when we are in search of a flattering swimsuit?
I am happy to report fashionable, sexy and age appropriate swimwear does exist! Magicsuit by Miracle Suit, a manufacturer of figure flattering swimwear, designs functional and fashionable styles that slim, trim and hide some of our visible imperfections. Another company that provides similar attributes is Lands’ End. This company designs a collection of swimsuits that suit almost any body type in the most flattering way with their “Fit Solutions” collection. Solid or in print the suits hug and taper with some incorporating racing stripes that slim your body. They even have shorts or skirts that have additional tummy control. It’s up to us to coordinate how we want to see ourselves. So ladies, now we can make a splash and have fun in the sun all summer long. Isn’t that refreshing!!!
