When swimwear season rolls around, most women feel the pressure to have the perfect body complemented with the perfect tan. There’s a lot of stress involved with swimwear, and that stress only gets worse when you feel like you don’t have the appropriate swimsuit for the occasion.
Chances are, you have a variety of events this spring and summer where you might be expected to wear a swimsuit. From company-sponsored parties to beach dates and pool days with the kids, each different occasion demands your attention to dress. After all, you can’t very well wear a string bikini to a corporate pool party, but you might feel a little over dressed if you wear a one-piece complete with skirt to your hot date where you’ll be playing beach volleyball. If you’re unsure what swimsuit to wear, make sure you match your dress to the audience and occasion.
Think of the people who will be attending the event. Will there be children there? Neighbors? Coworkers? Family? How comfortable are you in these situations? The less comfortable you are, the more you should cover up. It’s always better to be modest than to risk offending people or showing too much (though some might disagree). While your hubby might appreciate your hot stuff, your boss might view it as unprofessional, and your mother in law might have her own thoughts about your red bikini.
Tankinis are a good alternative if you’re unsure of what swimsuit to wear. They offer a good mix of coverage and stylishness, so much like the ambivalent “semi-formal wear,” a tankini works for a variety of situations.
Of course, you always want your swimsuit to be flattering, but make sure that you flatter the right curves and hide the ones that might be showing more than you would like. Look closely at the situation and who will be there before you purchase a swimsuit, and when all else fails, a tankini is a safe bet.
