It’s that time of the year. The snow is melting and the birds are waking me up on a Saturday morning when I want to sleep in a little. It’s getting closer to summer which means it’ll be hotter, which means it’s time for the beach, which means I’ll most likely be looking for a new swimsuit for the season.
I’m still obsessed with my two pieces from last year and the once piece from the year before, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to stop looking. This year I’m hoping is going to be a little different though. I thought last year with my black skirt two pieces was pushing it for me. But something tells me that I’m ready for something different. I just wanted to show you what I look for in finding a swimsuit.
They’re are some other factors that I’m looking for when it comes to searching for a bathing suit. From comfort to the color to the style it’s made in, there are various reasons I would wear one over the other.
One of the first things I look for is does it go past certain parts of my body. I like shorter or longer skirts because of my legs. As of right now, I’m not fully comfortable wearing a bikini where the bottoms are strings. So that’s why I always wear shorts or long skirts. Another thing I look for is the length for the top. It feels comfortable to me when the top can get pulled down a little bit. That's because I’m always scared it’s going to come up.
Okay, yes bright colors are typically summer colors. Like yellows, bright pinks, things like that. While I also think bright colors are the way to go for summer, I personally think that dark colors and black look the best on me.
Will I wear it?
When I go shopping I always ask myself, “am I going to wear this?” and most of the time the answer is yes. But that’s with shoes, pants, shirt, and not with swimsuits. If I know I’m going to be going to the beach or go swimming often during the summer, then I’ll say yes and buy multiple sets. But if I know I won’t be anywhere near water, then I’ll say no.
Where do I shop at?
When it comes to the places I look for, I typically go into the stores so I can try them on. I want to know what they’re going to look like before I pay so I don’t have to return it. I typically go to stores where I normally shop at so Torrid is my main one. I already know they’re going to have good suits. However, I’m always looking for new fun places to shop at.
