Bodysuits are not worn by every body, but it’s a great fashion item to have, it looks like a one-piece swimsuit, however you wear it not on the beach or by the pool, you wear it in normal daily life or special occasions.
Worn nicely, bodysuits can easily put a fashion entitle on your head without a doubt. When you sit down and have a close look, actually bodysuits are not that intimidating — it’s good idea to layer your choices of clothes, to half cover it, to expose the upper part with a long sleeve underneath, or put a blazer on top of it, or a daring short skirt to show a glimpse of it from time to time… the options are endless.
For example this DKNY bodysuit, you can wear a maxi skirt or a Bermuda shorts under to be presentable outside gym or personal space.
This one will look fantastic with a white or black blazer…
This CHANEL bodysuit is so lovely and I myself would choose something made of sheer chiffron and you can see through… why not? this is so pretty!

New News! Facekinis?!
In Qingdao (a beautiful beach city), China, a new trend of swimwear has been spotted. Apparently not appreciated by me, but many Chinese women chose this way to protect heir skin from the UV rays at the beach while enjoying what the summer can offer worry-free.
People call these masks “facekinis,” such a new thing this summer, but so far still within the boarder of China, where pale skin represents beauty and wealth. Tanned skin, on the other hand, represent labor work and poverty. From the photos, you can also see many people pair their facekinis with a long-sleeved shirt or swimsuit to ensure maximum protection in the water.
The mask doesn’t really flattering one’s look, leaving only the wearer’s eyes, nose and mouse exposed, so much so like what the robbers in the movies look like. However, the power of pursuing beauty is much stronger than temporary fanny scene. I guess. Also there are many people do the same thing, so no big deal.
A lot of people bought their facekinis online, these only cost between $2.40 to $4, with multiple designs & color, as well as sizes.
What do you think? Are you going to wear facekinis?
If you like sparkling clothing or accessories, you are not alone. One of the biggest hit on the beach or pool side this season and will continue to next season is Sequins Swimwear.

All kinds of prints can look awesome if designed well. Swimwear gives designers a broad canvas to express their artistic feeling and experiment on different materials, with various styles.

Liz Hurley just finished her photoshoot for her new 2013 swimwear collection & beach collection. Close to 50, she still looks amazing, much younger than the women at her age. You can see the grace, the maturity, the elegance as well as the confidence.
Her body looks stunning, you can’t tell the mark of the time in it. She posed with her boobs without bra in a turquoise kaftan embellished with silver sequins (which is definitely a trend for next year, we will talk about it later posts)
The shot of her lining towards a flower-covered stone wall in figure-hugging orange bandeau dress was one of my favorite. All her beauty has been exposed without any intention to hide.
Another sexy shot saw Liz Hurley in gold bandeau dress lying on the floor, with smokey eyes and pink lips, looks thoughtful and attractive.
Honestly, the whole collection does tap into the trend in swimwear, however from the limited photos, I didn’t see too much novelty, waiting to see more.

While I was at the Phuket for holiday, went to the beach every day. Low season, the water was quite rough. When I was jumping with the wave, there was a common scene (including all the female friends there), the bikini tops and briefs sometimes were flipped by the strong water, and your private part probably got a big chance to be exposed! Luckily there were not so many people around and we are not celebrities to attract the unnecessary shots! However, this made me think again – maybe bikini is never suitable for the water, literally.
I changed to the one-piece swimsuit and all problem solved!

A lot of her collection are full of vibrant colours and watercolour floral prints. Printed kaftans and maxi-dresses as part of the collection.
Megan Gale intends to keep things simple. Her collection features more bikinis than one piece. Since she likes her customers to mix and matach colors with prints.

A bit lavender, big portion of blue, big portion of white… the colors simply splashed on the fabric, so casual, so relax and so peaceful… With beach hat and the oversize bangles… love it!
I know Alice + Olivia is not a big swimwear brand, however this time, the design shines through…

When we are happily talking about the one-piece swimwear, bikini, tankini, etc. and our summer holiday trips, one thing to remember – you also need to pack something a bit longer, bigger and warmer with you. Just in case you get cold after swim, or lying on beach till evening, the wind won’t be too pleasant and most importantly, you don’t want to get sick, which will definitely ruin your well planned holiday!
So. Think something like cover ups, caftan, capes, even silk jumpsuit or playsuit.
Nookie Beach Eco Cropped Front Cape
This beach cape is crafted in a lightweight, semi-sheer fabric. It has the cropped style at the front, a racer back and full maxi length at the back, this style has gained a lot of popularity since last year, I recommend you wear it with matching color swimsuit or bikini, given your brief will be exposed. But it’s super cool when you walk on the beach.
Ted Baker Beach Jumpsuit With Rose Bug Print
If you don’t want to worry too much about the cloth being blown away by the wind, this is a good choice. It is crafted in a sheer chiffon fabric with a rose floral print with wide cut trousers and a fitted elasticated cuff. fun and pretty.
This zebra-print gauze caftan is crafted in semi sheer material, features a V neck and back with draping at short kimono sleeves.
Jumpsuit might be fun, but not as feminine as the long cover up which shares the same functionality. Look at this beautiful blue, yellow, green Lightweight ‘Balinese Ikat’ patterned sheer silk chiffon, you will get too much attention there…

Today is the Bikini day!
French designer Louis Reard unveils a daring two-piece swimsuit on July 5, 1946, at the Piscine Molitor, a popular swimming pool in Paris.
How do you define a bikini? Louis’ idea is - if both pieces could be pulled through a wedding ring, it was a bikini, not a bathing suit or other type of women swimwear. That’s so true! But i bet it also depends on the fabrics, these days, some fabric might give much more weight than another.
In celebration of this big day in Fashion, we present here some hot bikinis picked by our editors.
Seafolly Limited Edition Phoenix Print Bandeau Bikini Set
Seafolly Bikini features a lovely contrast, tropical print, bandeau bikini top, gathered soft cups with boning for support, twist detail to the center with matching briefs. This bikini set will put you in a dreamland in a hot summer day…

Another point I want to make based on the Stephanie Rice swimwear incidence is that the bondage inspired one-piece swimsuits are making a comeback this year. There will be more cut out tank style rather than little string bikinis which cut in your skin. If you want to grab the trend of swimsuits 2012, continue to read.
One-piece swimwear is getting more popular, however, but with various twists, they might look even more sexy than bikinis.
From a lot of new season designers’ collections, you can see quite a number of gold rings and ropes strapped around the pelvis part- bondage like swimwear is quite popular, but after the hype of S and M novel ’50 Shades of Grey’, they got even more popular.
Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier & Herve Leger are the masters of the bondage designs.
Let’s see some bondage inspired swimsuits that you can find on our website.
Maaji Cut Out Mix Print Suit
First look at this swimwear, you might find it has a lot of element and don’t know where to focus, however, after a few looks, you will find the logic. The contrast mixed print design with ruched cross front straps, a tear drop keyhole detail, a floral printed bust, cut away sides, an open back, everything makes sense.
Red Or Dead Bridget Cut Out Swimsuit
This vintage style Red or Dead swimsuit features a graphic abstract logo pattern, with a halter top, featuring a tie to the neck and a clasp to the back, with cutaway sides and full cut vintage style briefs.
ASOS Mesh Lattice Suit
This lattice effect swim suit is crafted in a soft stretch fabric. Featuring a tie-up halterneck, shaped cups with a contrast mesh lattice overlay, front and side cut-out panels, a high cut to the leg and a tie fastening to reverse
Juicy Couture Chain Print Cut Out Suit
Juicy Couture’s cut-out swim suit features an all over gold chain print design with a plunging neckline, halterneck tie straps and gold-tone chain detailing to the centre, cut-out sides with chain inserts to the side straps and an open back with a hook clasp closure to the reverse. I am sure you will have a good looking tan line!

After writing about the Stephanie Rice’s incidence, I could not help writing a bit about Speedo.
A lot of people mistaken that Speedo as American brand, actually Speedo was born on famous Bondi Beach, Australia in 1928. Over the years, Speedo has became the world’s top-selling swimwear brand. Unlike a lot of other swimsuits brands, Speedo’s fame is built on the competitive swimming sports, not as leisure fashion. One interesting fact is more Olympic Gold Medals have been won in Speedo swimwear than any other brand.
American World Champion Michael Phelps wore Speedo when he made history in Beijing Olympic 2008, winning eight gold medals and rewriting the record books. As Phelps’ belief in Speedo’s history of innovation and quality, the mission to deliver the best swimming performance.
I was much influenced by Speedo’s spirit too. I own 2 Speedo swimsuits, swim cap and goggle respectively. I just wish myself can swim better!
Check the Speedo swimwear listed on the swimwear blog -
Highlights: beautiful snake prints, Xtra Life LYCRA fiber is engineered to have five-ten times more durability than ordinary spandex fabrics; providing resistance to suntan lotions, skin oils, and chlorine better than conventional fabrics, helping resist against sagging to keep swimwear fitting like new for longer period of time.
Highlights: Slick & chic design. Conservative cut provides greater coverage in the leg, neckline and backside for increased modesty. Designed to last longer, great endurance+ 100% chlorine resistant fabric helps quick drying and retain its shape swim after swim.
Speedo, Flipturns Extreme Back Laser Cut
Highlights: Firstly, hot pink makes you look really hot! Extreme Back construction has thin shoulder straps that crisscross at the back, creating an exciting, feminine statement against an open back; Endurance Lite fabric delivers four-way stretch, 100% chlorine resistance, and 20 times the durability and color fastness of traditional spandex fabrics; Laser cut openings down sides create resistance and drag to make you work harder during training… If you are keen on performance, then this one is for you!

Can’t wait for the London Olympic 2012 to start! Counting down…
Swimwear supermodel Kate Upton has just transformed into a high-fashion clothes horse in the July issue of Vogue. See the photo below. Comparing to her image in my mind, I could not even recognize her from here… very vaguely I can relate to her eyes and nose. With the fully wrapped by Michael Kors and Altuzzura clothes & heavy make up if not computer touch up (Are there any fashion photos for supermodels without Photoshop?) , I can even say this is not Kate Upton. But it is.
Kate Upton has always almost portrayed naked in all her photos (apart from attending some events or shows). She is Best known for her curvy bikini body and largely self-created Internet phenomenon, she really grabbed the fame by leveraging the powers of social media (all internet marketers take note here) – she has about 430,00 Twitter followers, the notorious Cat Daddy YouTube video quickly went viral (anybody worries about the case study of producing a viral video, study this).
Although Victoria’s Secret didn’t appreciate Kate’s figure, commenting as ’too obvious’ a face & Page 3 girl that everyone can buy with money - Vogue’s apparently think differently – bet Miss Upton might be very competitive world of high-fashion, at least for the PR value.
Kate Upton said in an interview: ‘People told me I couldn’t be fashion, that I’m just an old-fashioned body girl, only good for swimwear. But I knew that I could bring back the supermodel. What can I say? I’m relatable.’
Fashion designer Michael Kors agrees with Kate, he told the press that Today it’s not enough to have beauty. You have to have personality, be smart and love fashion, or else you’ll disappear quickly.
Some fan argues that Kate being famous and can do all these only thanks to her rich uncle and well connected family. but what we can do in this world? And Miss Upton is up for it, she did something that maybe a lot of us only talk about but didn’t do or even give it a go.
Oh well, one of the biggest news on the internet for the sports industry/ fashion industry is the story of Olympics swimming Gold medalist Stephanie Rice (Australia) posted a Twitter photo picturing herself wearing a swimsuit given to her as a birthday present “Thank you to the Gorgeous @elliegonsalves for my birthday @veveswimwear bikini,” which caused all the controversy followed after.
The followers of her on Twitter threw out some very negative comments, something like Stephanie Rice brought disgrace to Australian swim team and she should focus on the upcoming Olympics game, etc. etc. Some also worried that her photo might harm Speedo’s sponsorship for her, but you know what? she doesn’t have relationship with Speedo anymore. Some also think the cross band under the chest implicate the element of ‘slave’ and ‘racist’ (see how Adidas withdrew their controversial ’slave’ sneakers) , which probably think too far? I don’t think Stephanie Rice would have ever thought of it. She is just a simple swimming girl and want some public attention.
It is not the first time Stephanie Rice has posted a revealing self-portrait on social media – in 2008 she posted her photo wearing police officer’s costume to Facebook. Another photo she posted on Twitter following breakup with Wallaby player Quade Cooper also raised some eyebrows. Oh well, I guess that’s her style. This won’t be the last time either.
She is going to London for the 2012 Olympic in a few days, and hopefully she will focus more on defending her championship now instead of posting bikini photos. But overall, to be in a fair position, the swimsuit itself doesn’t look bad at all.
What do you think?

Last post we talked about sea concept swimwear - Beautiful, natural, fresh… This post we are going to talk a very on trend style in 2012, not only in swimwear fashion, but also in general fashion -
Not sure if Andy warhol effect got into all designers’ head, 2012 so far is a year with color blocks, we see so many in women shoes, clothing, accessories, even the homeware design.
Get a bit flirty in this cool DKNY maillot – with bold color-blocking stripes, high neckline, adjustable halter strap, elasticized band under bust – the pattern elongate the body, the strips form the curves – you will look much slander!
This strapless, colorblock one-piece swimwear features a sweetheart neckline and molded underwire cups. The color block combination is interesting and very natural to my eye. Detachable spaghetti straps can be removed or add on anytime you want. I would put them on actually, current photo looks a bit like mikey mouse for me. lol
Make a retro splash with this high waisted, two-piece swimsuit from Cynthia Rowley swimwear. Orange and Pink color is not a common combination, but there they look awesome. It give me some idea to mix & match my other swimsuit too. Brilliant!
Wetsuit has no need to be just black or monotone, right? This colorblock neoprene wetsuit features topstitching at the bonded panels. Very feminine color block combination, different shades of blue with a bit touch of pink, yellow and grey. Love it!

It’s a visual joy to look at the Chanel Resort 2013 collection.
Karl Lagerfeld is talented and for the result after 12 months planning, her was joyful. He described the show as “Versailles in a Socialist France”, which said it all. With the background of rocks and waves, the sound, the wonderful clothes, what other senses haven’t been satisfied?
Karl Lagerfeld uses formal 18s century details, like fichus and panniers, recreate them in casual 21 century fabrics—tech denims, plastics—dressed up with frothy lace ruffles and cuffs, and dressed down with short shorts and gold platform trainers. At some point, it might look a bit strange, but after a while, you won’t anymore – you got the girlish feeling, the exuberant energy, the smell of hot summer. Lagerfeld said he wanted something floating and frivolous and oh yes, he did achieve that.
I didn’t put the whole collection here, just to our topic - swimwear… these are not really for swim, just for show, for a great show on the beach and by the pool. For you to tan, to walk around, sipping cocktails, to chat with people, to stare, to lose yourself in the beautiful summer days…
What do you think for Chanel swimmers?

Yesterday’s topic on 2012 summer trend was on PINK color swimsuits, with different shades of pink, you can also pair with pink sandals if you want to be pink all over, or just bear feet to enjoy the sun and waves…
Another trend in 2012 summer swimwear is floral prints. Actually who doesn’t like floral prints? Including all our designers. However, from last season, the floral made a huge come back, different combinations of material, texture, shades have added too much quality to every piece of swimsuit they produce.
4. Floral print
Elegant print bikini set – Bandeau top features a twist between the cups and boning at the sides. Bottoms feature ties at sides. Look great with nice tan.
Juicy Couture print swimsuit. It has an all over contrast floral print, a heart shaped neckline, super slim cut and ribbon detail to sides. This one I goes nicely with a fairer skin tone.

Love this printed swimsuit! The white color, the sketched floral placement print, the deep plunging scooped neckline – everything is perfect! Classic with a bit ‘Zen’ feel!
Apart from floral print swimsuits, there are a lot of printed cover ups, tunic and play suits, rompers for you to choose this season. This strapless floral silk romper features a scarf overlay at the bodice, simple, fun and sexy!
Make your summer as sweet as flower, add the floral prints in your wardrobe, in your beach bag…
Last post we talk about bling bling swimwear, actually the swimsuit with metallic element, a lot of time will be gold, silver and the metallic treatment for all other colors…
Another trend of 2012 summer this year is PINK. Pink is one of girl’s life -time loving colors. From a baby girl being wrapped in everything pink, to later teenage, adult women… we can always find something pink around us. Talking about swimwear, different shades, texture, pattern through pink have given us the brand new interpretation of how beautiful this color is.
3. PINK wave
Pink mesh bikini set with contrast lining. Bandeau top features a twist detail between the ruched cups. Boning at sides. Simple, lively, sweet.
This light pink one piece swimwear features an asymmetric neckline, a looped string fastening to the back. The multi-tiered ruffle trim adds too much fun to this swimsuit.
This stylish Juicy Couture bikini set is crafted in fine, pink nylon stretch, cute polka dot print: slim triangle top with fine ties and striped chest band, matching tight bikini panties – you will look super trendy, dressy and sexy in it! What a stylish young lady!
Apart from swimwear, I also want to show you this stylish & vibrant Pink sweet pea swim cover up tunic. Burberry Britain adds instant luxe to your resort wear – Pair with bikini set and embellished sandals or even can style with skinny jeans for a garden or city look!
Last time we talked about the clear cut swimsuit trend this year, today, we continue with the bling bling. Especially for women who have nice tanned skin or natural olive skin, it will be a great advantage to wear golden color swimwear & you need to be bold enough.
2. Bling bling
Gold color is a magic color, can be constructive or destructive at the same time. Before you put something on, you need evaluate the skin color, you hair style, accessories. Yes, it sounds a bit overkill, but the end result will make you feel worth it!
If you can’t wear the gold gold color, try some soft shade or different material. Like this double-layered bandeau bikini soften the extravagance of gold, but still remain the elegance.
High self-confident with your tan, try this gold monokini, the frilly fringes make it even nicer… sexy and flirty, but nobody will complain on a Saturday afternoon by the pool. Enjoy the compliment!
Just want a bit bling bling, but not gold gold. Try this bikini set which has a metallic, animal print, bandeau bikini top, a detachable halterneck strap with gold-tone bead detailing.
Just in need a of a little bit gold. Try this Michael Kors swimsuit – Take a deep dive into a mystifying adventure…
If you want a easy solution, just wear some jewelry or some accessories, like hats, thongs with gold or other metallic colors.
In summer, swimwear becomes the another layer of skin of us, they are beautiful, sexy, elegant, they will be what we want them to be.
The fashion comes around, with some highlight and changes… we want to be in the trend, for swimwear at least, because they are supposed to stand out and make a splash in this wonderful summer.
2012 Summer swimwear, what’s in the trend?
1. Clear Cut
Google is such a great thing happened to mankind, I found this newspaper dated May 25, 1960 “Eugene Rigister Guard”, talking about the clear-cut swimwear by Jantzen – “Around the pool we have a saying… ‘Just wear a smile and a Jantzen’.. for these Oregon inspired suits curve into focus with an ease of fit, a brilliance of color, a true simplicity of clear-cut comfort that Oregonian, and the rest of the country, know and appreciate…”
Jantzen is till active in the US, however, there are many more new swimwear companies and swimsuits brands coming out and offers thousands thousands different styles for fashion conscious swimwear lovers.
Do you have the similar experience as me – always losing one earring of a pair, getting holes on only one sock out of a pair or getting either top or bottom of bikini broken? What to do? Normally I would just get a new pair, or if possible, I put the lonely one with another to create a new pair – mix and match it is!
So maybe sometimes, we don’t need to stick to the offered pair by manufacturers or brands, we can put L*Space bikini top with Seafolly bikini bottom, or Marc by Marc Jacobs tankini with Juicy Couture swim skirt… you potentially can create something amazing & better than the original design!
A lot of celebrities like to try mix & match -
Let me show you some of my creation:
Inspiration from the color of blue as the link, tops interprets white cloud and blue sky, the brief is showing earth, plants and flowers.
This mix & match is so much fun, apart from women swimsuit, you can mix and match a lot of other clothing too. Feel like a stylist! Try it and you may get amazed what a magic that you can create!
British Designer Roksanda Ilincic has been really really hot these days.
Her new 2012 summer collection has gained too much attention already. She said there is an American spin to the look of this line – “I was imagining all those photos of stars walking around pools in Old Hollywood—not swimming, of course, but maybe having a martini,” she says. “I sort of tried to hit the niche I have for my cocktail dresses—the color-blocking, piping contrasts, and the minimal French lace edgings I use, but seen as swimwear. I tested all the shapes myself, as I do with all my fittings; you’ve got to be certain and safe as a woman that they’re right. So even where I’ve used nude colors—which have the illusion of being quite daring—most of the pieces are actually quite covered up.” I am sure the Mad Men loving ladies will dying to wear all these beautiful swimwear.
Roksanda Ilincic has dressed Penélope Cruz, Carey Mulligan, Michelle Obama, Samantha Cameron,and the Duchess of Cambridge – Kate Middleton on her visit to the United States. Now she is busy completing a project for a major British music star and a troupe of dancers, what a productive designer!

Continue the topic of how to choose the swimsuits based on body types
6th one – no curves
You know what? We really examine our body shape a lot – many ladies complain about that they have too much flesh so need to hide or their body has no curves or lack of femininity when there is no extra flesh. Anyhow, we can always find flaws on our body.
We talked about different body types in the previous posts, this time we will talk about what you can do when you think that you are not curvy enough. Actually, it can be really simple, really can just rely on style or color to solve the problem.
For example – pick a tankini that mixes things up; pick a floral or print for the part that you’d like to look more curvaceous, either top or bottom, plus a solid color for the other piece. These are all helping create the illusion of curves. The blow picture using the drapes to enlarge the bust and the black color is very helpful on shrinking the visual effect of the waist.
German issue of Vogue for May 2012 blow off all our clothes. Georges swimwear photos with Guinevere van Seenus by Knoepfel & Indlekofer Beach Chic. Supermodel Guinevere van Seenus hits the beach packed with Lanvin jewelry and a Chanel handbag plus a few precious pieces of season 2012 designer swimwear.

5th one – broad thighs
If you have a broad thighs, the problem might be your legs look bigger and shorter. The best way to use swimsuit to help is finding a cut moderately high at the leg. Now low, but high – if that cut is low, it possibly will digs into your thigh and makes it look even bigger. Higher cut will help elongate your legs, adding some inch visually to look slimmer.
Or, the easiest way as we solve the problem as big bottom, you can add a bit more coverage, wear a swim skirt over boy-cut shorts. However, if you have any flesh on your thighs and you are not 15 years old anymore, the boy-shorts wont look good since they will dig right into your thighs, which will make things worse and contrary to what we want to achieve. So a slim skirt, perferably with a nice slit, allowing to show just a hint of thigh from time to time, in this way will make you look thinner & slimmer.

I fall in love with photography sometime in 90′s when I was just getting into my teen years. That took me to bachelor degree in photography and lot good & fun time. One of the iconic publications was Pirelli Calendar. Every year, Pirelli, famous Italiano tyre company, would come up with calendar full of supermodels in swimwear. And all done by top photographers in the World. This Pirelli traddiotna stood for years and still running today.
Somewhere around year 2000 one photographer stood from the pack. It was young Italian whose provocative images apread in fashino publications around the World. Artistic, but with strong and sometime rough note of reality. Dream and reality mixed. Exactly what I always admired in photography. It was Mario Sorrenti. OK, without further introduction, below is video about Pirelli 2012 Calendar featuring Kate Moss, Milla Jovovich, Isabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly and other supermodels. This time without swimwear. Naked. Through lens of Mario. Enjoy.

4th one – Big Bottom
A lot of women complain that they have far too big bottom – oh well, if by what you mean the bottom like Jennifer Lopez, just relax – you are the gold, millions other women want to look like you – Accept it gladly and go with the flow. You can basically wear anything, show off the broad bottom, as long as it’s toned.
However, if you have non-toned bottom and cellulite is an issue, apart from keep exercising (of course this might take a while), in terms of choosing swimsuit — go ahead with a swim skirt or Skirtini- anything dark that isn’t flimsy, something with double weigh lycra will cut down on jiggles successfully.
These beautiful swim skirts use stretch microfiber fabric, holds its shape and resists fading for lasting wear; Flattering skirted hipster stylishly covers the hips, rear, and upper thighs — so you look fitter & nicer. Never afraid that the cellulite on your bottom will reveal the secrets!
Wear skirtini if you really don’t want to show anything, they will cover most parts of your body with nice fabric and patterns.

3rd one – thick waist
If you think your waist might be too thick, the miracle fabrics to contour waistband, shape with comfort, so find miracle suit.
Also don’t forget that color is your friend. In order to ‘narrow’ your waist, look for one piece swimsuit with dark side panles and a lighter color or print in the center. You must have seen the similar effect on normal dresses, a lot of celebrities like that. Same with the swimsuit, you’ll look much more curvaceous rather than chunky. :)
Note: need to be careful though, the cut out one piece swimsuit with half exposed waist sometimes can trick others’ eyes, to make you look have even bigger waist, so think carefully before you make any final decisions.

2nd one – big belly.
Miracle suit is the Spanx to swimsuits. These specially designed swimsuits are made of a propeirtary blend of control fabric – that can slim you all over without leaving you feeling like you are in a tight corset. If you have a bigger belly & want to cover it, then these swimsuits are the best option for you.
But be careful – sometimes these suits can pull you in in some places but push you out in another. For example, we need to have enough support to help move the bust from side to the front, when our bust is all in front, we look sexy. However, if the suit flatterns us in the front and pushes more to the sides, it can make us look fat.
Also, the suit with a little hearing & gathering over the stomach, with control underneath, will assist to hide the belly. Another tip: the suit with a higher-cut leg (not the straight cut) can make you look slimmer and your legs longer.

I am going to do a series talking about how to choose swimwear according to your bodytype, not because of what celebrities are wearing, not because the trend, just to find out what suit you the best.
OK, first one – small bust.
Actually this is not that huge a problem, given how versatile all the swimwear design these days. If you are a natural slim person, consider wearing two-piece with a slightly padded bra. You know what? Quite a lot of bikini tops are actually push -up bras, so problem solved – you look like you have more than you do.
Also choose halters or tops with shirring and ruffles, which add a little extra dimension to make you look more bustier.
Push-up bikini by O’Neill features a contrast spot design, plunge ups with underwire support, halterneck styling and self-tie fastenings, the big polka dots have the visual expansion feel, make your bust looks wider, and the push up bras do magic too.

Look really great, eh?

So now we should say – the new design bring out the hot & sexy part from leopard print, you can totally carry it with you across the whole summer, anytime, anywhere…

Cameron Diaz and Rebecca Romijn love the same bikini from L*Space… Actually I love it too… Who doesn’t?
Both of the stars are 39 years old, both look gorgeous! Who looks better?
Cameron has the great, athletic body that envied by girls in 20s, her tanned skin also will make most bright color pop. However, given her short hair, I would think she would look better in cream color bikini in the same series – Color Blocked Malibu Top & Brief.
Rebecca is a mother of twin girls, can you believe it? She already got the body back for pregnancy. Her skin color is a bit lighter than Cameron, hence goes with the grey perfect; she also worn a matching yellow heeled sandal, overall, she looks amazing.
I will vote for Rebecca for this swimwear. What about you?

If you are a fan of swimwear, you would have heard the name of Katherine "Kate" Upton. She is an American model with face on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue first in 2011. Then She was named Rookie of the year, Again in 2012. She became the cover model of the magazine, and her steps can't be stopped now.
On April 30, 2012, she performed the "Cat Daddy" in a video directed went viral on Youtube with the purpose to further increase her popularity, grabbing almost 750,000 views in the 24 hours before it was temporarily removed from YouTube for violating the site's rules on sexual content. You can have a look if you want. 5 mins of repeated almost naked dance, a bit too much for me.
But she is a great swimwear model for sure, she has he body and look youthful!
Here are some good shots and a video, what do you think?
Of course she also makes fashion mistakes, in the recent Met costume Gala, her dress was critized by almost everybody, it didn't highlight who she is, (19 year old hot swimwear model), but fell into the old, cliche holliywood style, however she hasn't got the ability to carry, the fake make up did her more harm than good that's for real.
Do you think she is hot & a great swimwear model? Do you think she has potential to become really big? let us know your thoughts below.
