The Secret to Finding a Bathing Suit that Fits

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s that time of year when most women dread shopping for a new bathing suit. Some even turn down invitations for pool parties and tropical vacations.

I don’t want you to feel that way too, so here is a quick and easy tip to find a bathing suit that fits.

Two. It’s the magic number.

It takes only two to find the right fitting bathing suit.

No, not two people.

No, not two pounds.

No, not two stores.

No, not two bathing suits.

The properly fitting bathing suit is waiting for you in two sizes up from your clothing size.

Do not and I mean do not try on a bathing suit in your clothing size.

You should however, try on suits in one to two sizes up from your clothing size. If you don’t you’re destined for a miserable, ego deflating shopping experience because the swimsuit will be too tight and short on you.

I have no idea why the swimsuit, as well as wedding dress designers chose to size their designs differently than clothes, but they did. And they make women feel big and unhappy.

Go up and you’ll look and feel like you went down a size or two.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
