Best Bathing Suits for Straight Body Types

March 24th, 2016 by

What do Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz and most supermodels have in common? They have straight body types. This means that their hips and shoulders are about the same and their waist isn’t very defined. Sound like you? Then you, and your glamorous counterparts, could be a Style Dial 3. And this, frankly, makes me […]

Best Bathing Suits for Women with Hips

March 23rd, 2016 by

You’ve either got’em or you don’t. Hips, that is. And if you’ve got’em, nobody needs to point them out to you. I have never met a woman with curvy hips who was unaware that she had curvy hips. After all, she’s been dressing them her entire adult life. So if you are blessed with a feminine […]

Best Bathing Suits for Proportional Body Types

March 22nd, 2016 by

I’m going to tell you, in case you haven’t heard it before, that you are blessed. I’m sure you’re blessed in lots of ways, of course, but I’m talking about blessed on a strictly superficial level here. You have the body type that clothing companies and designers live for — the kind that they wish […]

How to Pick the Right One Piece Swimsuits for Your Body Type | Bathing Suit Week

March 21st, 2016 by

I have just spent what feels like weeks looking at 20-something models in tiny, tiny bathing suits. Months, maybe. Seriously. And no, this wasn’t a misguided attempt to motivate myself to get in shape for swimsuit season. I promise. It was work, actually. I had a 20-page swim spread due for My Coast Magazine, and that involved […]

I’m going to admit it. I’m all over the place when it comes to what I’ll spend on something. My bathing suit drawer features classic styles from Marysia and Tomas Maier right next to Marshall’s clearance finds. I am not a snob. If I love it, I will buy it, and that’s especially true when […]

Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before. Not every trend was made for every body. And its close cousin: No one looks good in everything. No one. Not even Miranda Kerr. Okay, maybe her, but that’s it. 😉 I came to this realization years ago, when a well-meaning friend told me […]

The Worst Bathing Suits Ever (and the Alternatives)

The way I see it, there are two types of bad. There is shockingly bad. And there is ho-hum bad. And I’ll take shocking over boring any day. A look that is predictable and “too safe” instantly zaps your style, because it sucks the energy and personality out of any look.  And when it comes to a bathing suit, […]

What I Know for Sure: The Bathing Suit Edition

July 13th, 2014 by

Oprah isn’t the only one who has learned a thing or two. Like every other mom on the planet, I have acquired my share of hard-earned wisdom, some of it more useful than others. But more some reason, recently, the wisdom I’ve acquired by bathing suit shopping has been playing over and over in my head. […]
