Ask Erin


Since summer is right around the corner I was wondering if you had any advice on how to find the perfect bathing suit?

The number one thing I recommend is that you ALWAYS try the bathing suit on before buying it!  I know, I know…it’s not fun for me either, but you’d be surprised at how differently a bathing suit looks and feels once it is off a hanger and onto your body!

Secondly, don’t be afraid to mix and match different tops and bottoms.    It can actually look quite stylish!

Thirdly, don’t stick with black just because you think you have to!!    Try a navy blue, brown, or other neutral color!

Another good rule of thumb to go by is to buy a print that works with your body type.  For instance, if you are extremely petite, try a print that is petite,too.  Anything too large will overpower your small frame.  If you feel you are a little larger, don’t choose an itty bitty print that will get lost in translation.  Animal print is actually a very universally flattering print!  Try it!

Above all, have fun and don’t be afraid to try new things!  Just stay away from barely-there bikinis.  🙂
