Swimsuit Season: Find The Perfect Swimsuit

One of my personal goals for June was to get myself toned & ready for bathing suit weather – You can check out my first post on this topic for tips & recommendations on getting fit – Swimsuit Season: How To Get Bikini Ready.

Step two in the journey towards enjoying swimsuit season is finding the perfect suit for your body type. I for one don’t fit into any of the convenient body type categories magazines use and finding the right bikini is definitely an exercise in trial and error. Check out the three great new suits that I picked out for 2013 at the bottom! ❤

As for me, my new bathing suit purchases this year include this fierce TopShop Bandeau Suit, a too cute Forever 21 Zebra Bikini, and to fulfill my love of one-piece retro inspired swimsuits I picked up this fabulous Marc by Marc Jacobs Maillot Swimsuit.

  1. I’m definitely digging vintage swimsuits this year. Ever since I saw them first, I fell in love instantly. And even high waisted bikini bottoms although I don’t wear 2 piece suits. Hehe someday definitely when I tone my body a bit more. But till then, it’s one piece swimsuits for me. The bandeau ones are equally interesting! xx 🙂
