Flattering Swimsuits

In four short days I’ll be leaving on a plane with my girlfriends.  And our mamas.  For a week filled with sunshine and the beautiful gulf coast of Florida.  I simply cannot wait.  Which is why I’ve been window shopping for some new swimwear.

I love that the retro 50s look is back in a big way, but sometimes you just have to be realistic about your body type.  I have short legs and an extremely long torso (and a chest that’s on the smaller side), so the retro styles with higher cut waistbands  don’t quite flatter me.  Instead I look for bottoms with a higher leg cut to visually lengthen my legs and a top that has ruching or ruffles to add volume to my chest.  I’m also a fan of hipster type bottoms since my short legs come with a rather curvy behind.  You now know more about my body type that you every thought possible.

For those of you with a similar figure, check out some of my current swimwear favorites to flatter your shape!
