Summer means sand, sunsets and lazy days by the pool–but it also means it’s time to whip out that swimsuit that’s been hiding in your closet all winter. Never fear, try these easy & safe tricks will help you feel better about putting on you and look fantastic in your bikini.
1. Stand up straight
Good posture makes everyone look better. People with good posture are perceived as more attractive. Still other psychology research has shown that we look slimmer when we stand up straight, and that posture can affect our mood and behaviour.
2. Be confident
Think, know and feel you are beautiful and sexy. If not, why you still want to wear bikini?
3. Get the right bathing suit
Ignore the trends and choose a suit based on your body type and best characteristics. New cuts and styles may be all the rage for the season, but don’t get stuck buying a bikini based on what’s hot this year–it may not be the perfect fit for you and you could end up regretting the decision. Instead, make your purchase based off of what you feel most comfortable in.
4. Hide flaws
Whether it’s cellulite, a bruise or discoloration you want to hide, a little self-tanner can go a long way when you’re hitting the beach. Apply self-tanner to the entire body starting a few days before the day and you’ll feel instantly sexier when it’s time to throw on the bikini. Or, go for a spray tan-you’ll look like you just came back from a week in Tahiti.
5. Know your angles.
If you’re going to be taking pictures or impressing the lifeguard in tower 16 you want to know how to hold yourself so that you look the best. We all have a good side, know yours. This isn’t photo-shopped, it’s strategic as all heck though.
6. Have an “un-dress” rehearsal.
You tried your bikini on in the store, but now it’s time to try it out at home. Wear it around the house, get used to it, see how it feels on your body for more than a few minutes. It’s also a prime opportunity to see how the swimsuit actually looks on you, sans the horrible dressing room mirrors!
