Best shapewear bathing suits

Best shape wear swim suits for women over 50

Shape wear is a great invention. The best thing is that it is now available to wear to the pool or to the beach. You can always jazz these beautiful bathing suits up with colorful sarongs or coverups. Whether you´re in fantastic shape or you´re self-conscious about certain parts of your body, there is something for everyone. Some styles cover your cleavage, others enhance it, most offer tummy support, upper thigh coverage or both. All of them are stylish, and can be worn at the pool or at the beach with confidence.

Tips to find out which style is most flattering
In order to find out what kind of shapewear bathing suit would make you look and feel great, take a look at yourself in the mirror at home (please don´t torture yourself by doing this under the unkind fluorescent lighting of a dressing room!), preferably in candlelight. Do this in your underwear, a bikini or bathing suit you own, or do it naked, your choice. A glass of wine and soft music may help unwind. Take in your body as a whole, and experiment with a shawl, covering the parts that make you self-conscious and baring your assets. When you´ve figured out what looks the most flattering on you, then window shop your favorite look below. The benefit of shopping online is that you get to try on the bathing suits and see yourself in a flattering mirror at home. You can always order two sizes or several models and return the one that doesn´t fit.
