Many of us absolutely dread swimwear shopping. But even though it’s a daunting shopping task, I have very, very good news! The process of picking out your beach babe look doesn’t have to be scary. I’ve put together a must-read guide on all things curvy and fabulous for swimsuit season. Read on to see my bathing suit style suggestions for every body type and body part! #PoolSideStyle has never been so chic.
Styling for a Big Bust
DC Solution: Stay away from padded or bust-enhancing swimwear. Look for suits that offer great underwire coverage or minimizer bra tops. This will offer a slenderized bust area.
Shop the Look: Tropiculture Plus Size Black And Taupe Cross Back Underwire Swimsuit, $51, swimsuitsforall.com
Monochrome Feather-Print Swimsuit, $61, asos.com
To Flatter Your Thighs
DC Solution: Skirted bottoms are a great way to cover one's assets and get the shape you want out of a swimsuit. Don’t be afraid to try a great cover-up with a sexy two-piece—because sometimes the illusion of “less is more” is best when in the pool.
A Slimming Stomach Style Situation
DC Solution: Look for tummy-control shapewear! An added layer of mesh lining can help if you are feeling a bit over exposed. Also, the trend of the high-waisted bottoms can surely ease your curves into a very fashionable look.
A Bathing Suit for Your Bottom
DC Solution: Don’t be afraid to accentuate the positive. Play up your waist-to-hip ratio and add a slight cinch and little ruffle. A great backside deserves to stand out!

Curvy Note: It's totally OK to be a beach bum this summer—just don’t forget your sunscreen and some fresh tunes! But before you show off your arms, legs, and bikini on the beach, don’t forget to get a wax or close-shave! Two of my favorites are Uni K Wax and Smooth Snap Razors by Venus, both of which help me confidently show off my curves!
