Let’s be honest, we don’t all have the perfect body. So, unless you are a photoshopped supermodel, it’s nice to have a little extra coverage from your bathing suit. And no, I don’t mean 1920’s Grandma bathing suits. I mean classy AND sassy. Ta-da! The modern day swim skirt!
Hips Don’t Lie:
We all know how to cover our middle with a one piece or tankini bathing suit, but what about hips? From stretch marks to veins, there are lots of reasons you may not want to showcase your hips. Sometimes a boyshort bottom just doesn’t do it. And some traditional cover ups are just too much coverage or totally unattractive. So try a new skim skirt! There are so many cute swim skirts now that can cover up hips without sacrificing on style!
Built In or Separate:
Traditional swim skirts have a built in bikini bottom. I think these are pretty cool – you don’t have to worry about it shifting or separating while you move about. You can even go swimming in it! Or, you can opt for a cute separate skirt to pull on over your favorite one piece or add to your bikini or tankini bathing suit. It can be a real compliment to your beach outfit!
From the Beach to the Bar:
One of my favorite reasons to wear a swim skirt is the ease of going from the pool or beach to a restaurant or bar! You can easily walk the boardwalk and pop into a shop without having to change into a new outfit or covering up your fabulous swimsuit. Swim skirts are the ultimate combination of practicality and fashion.
Leave Something to the Imagination:
I’ve seen it all in the fitting rooms of my bra fitting shops, but that doesn’t mean I want to see it by the pool. From super skimpy bottoms to a lot of side-boob, the beaches are littered with skin baring styles. Stand out from the crowd and leave them guessing. Sometimes it’s even more sexy, and certainly more flirtatious.
