Meanwhile, I leave you with some thoughts on swim wear.

This may surprise a lot of people but Two-Piece Suits are a good option whether you are scrawny or curvy. They can flatter varied body types on an average woman better than the wrong style maillot:
- Many labels allow you to size the top and bottom separately for a great fit
- You can even mix styles up, like a tankini on top and string bikini bottom
- For most women, the deep V-plunge of the bra is a slimming feature
- You can choose the cut of your bottom (hipster, boy short, high cut, thong ...) to flatter your shape

Not to be worn in water!
Note, if you are an athletic person engaged in active water sports, you need performance swimwear that won't leave you with a wardrobe malfunction mid-lap. Regular swimsuits made for lounging will stretch when wet and can leave you uncovered with one strenuous move! Shelve your crochet, glamor bikinis if you are water bound.
