Swimwear for a Curvy Figure

I have to admit I am a worrier, when I was a child I would stick my latest speedo swimming costume on and zoom up and down the pool, they days I probably spend too much time worrying about what I look like in my latest buy does it make my bum look huge, does my stomach look like a huge tractor tyre are among a few thoughts that go through my mind.

Sadly I am not alone as most people seem to have areas of their body they don't like, one that they want to draw the eye away from, rather that make it say ‘hello, look at me' and when it comes to swimming costumes in particular, choosing the right one can cause a lot of worry and stress, however it need not be that hard, you just need to learn what can help hide or distract the eye from those parts.

With this in mind Marisota have come up with a fantastic infographic to try and help everyone feel comfortable in their swimming costume, no matter if they want to hide their tummy or make their legs look a little longer, there's a tip for it all and of course you can always try and divert the eye to the favourite part of your body.

    Thanks; I really needed some help with choosing a swimsuit as I’ve gained a lot of weight after surgery on my leg. This has given me some ideas & stopped me worrying about it so much

    I found a cute swimsuit in Matalan, the only downside it doesn’t have breast support, it’s so cute though, I dont mind 🙂
    Great advice here xx
