Fashion Porn: Swimwear Orgy

bathing suit intro

Swimsuit shopping has been dreaded by women for a very long time, but it doesn’t have to be.  Sure, seeing all that cellulite harshly highlighted by the flourecent lights of a dressing room is U-G-L-Y, but there are so many cute suits this season that you may not even notice those ripples.

This summer there is no one-size (or style) fits all for bathing suits.  There truly is a bathing suit for everyone regardless of shape, size, style or skin tone.  No longer are you bounded by the basic two options: the one-piece or the bikini.  Stores are carrying the monokini, the bikini, the tankini — and many variations on each of these different basic cuts. With all the options out there, you are sure to find one (or one for everyday!) that fits your budget and looks H-O-T.

      Ladies, when shopping for swimsuits be sure to focus on the positive, and show off the good things about your body while downplaying those that are not.

      @ Phil — Don’t worry. We feel the same way about guys who wear shorts and no shirt at the beach. Maybe you guys should follow that rule, too.
      Yay double standards, huh?

      Get over the fact that not every chick is plastic. Our bodies are what they are. Who gives a crap about “downplaying” the “negative” things about our body? Who sets those standards?

      I bet you have a nice little beer belly to go with your high standards.

      PS: love the swimsuits.

      while, indeed, every chick is not plastic, you should have the taste not to be the one that makes the crowd wince and cringe at the beach. have a realistic image of yourself. if you can wear a bikini, good for you, if you can't, you aren't alone!

      and guys in short shorts with beer bellies are gross too. i don't discriminate.

      Remember the monokini swimsuit. When it first came out, women were practically topless. Thanks for the information. Don Anthony @ Monokini Swimwear
