Over 50 and All About that Bass? Tips for Choosing the Best Swim Suit

Meghan Trainor made the world realize that it’s “all about that bass” and with summer here, it’s time to flaunt that curvy figure in a gorgeous and fitting bathing suit. Yet no matter what your size or age, we’re constantly over analyzing our bodies, so choosing the right bathing suit can be both challenging and nerve-wracking. While there are many guides out there to help accentuate and highlight your curves, many of these are geared to a younger crowd. If you’re over 50, you not only have curves to work with, but you also need to find something age appropriate. Here is a guide to everything you need to know to choose the best swim suit for you.

Two-Piece Suits
For some of us, we like to stay covered up when choosing a swimming suit. However, covering up just calls more attention and will make you look old-fashioned. Who says curvy moms can’t wear bikinis? Nowadays, plus sized models are embracing the idea that anyone can wear a two-piece and you just simply have to find one for you. High-waisted bottoms are currently in style and provide the shaping effect of a one-piece while still embracing your curves. If you’re busty, you may want to find a top with underwire that will help lift and support. At most stores, you can mix and match tops and bottoms so you can find that perfect match.

One-Piece Suits
If you’re more comfortable in a one-piece try to find one that doesn’t cover everything up. Find a swim suit that highlights other areas. A one-piece that accentuates your breasts, will distract from your stomach. You can also find one-piece suits with built-in control panels that are invisible from the outside viewer. When you’re shopping for your one-piece, hone in on those that have adjustable features such as halter necklines, removable cups, adjustable ties, or stretchable fabric. These swimming suits will let you tailor your suit to your body and liking.

The Dos and Don’ts

• Color: You should pick sophisticated colors that match your maturity. Go for neutral colors or saturated brights. You should not wear anything flashy such as bright neon colors or metallic.
• Prints: If you’d like some interesting patterns for your swim suit, look for geometric shapes, stripes, florals, ombre, or paisley. These will keep you looking sophisticated and sharp. Do not wear anything catered for a younger crowd such as animal print or sparkles. It will make you seem like you’re trying too hard.
• Coverups: The most flattering cover-ups will consist of flowy beach pants or a long beach dress. Don’t try too hard.

More Advice?
If you’re still not sure what to buy, try checking out Instagram or fashion blogs and search for some senior fashion influencers that inspire you. Such influencers are predominantly celebrities and fashion icons in their own right who know how to pull off a look and make the most of their assets. By following the style advice of such inspiring women, you will be able to find the perfect bathing suit for you.
Remember to embrace your curves and your age. Fashion is an expression of you, so don’t try to be someone you’re not. It’s all about that bass, even over 50.

I am choosing the second option, I am all for finding a swimsuit that  enhances & minimizes to give the perfect fit. Ladies to win this battle, I suggest you take the time and know your shape, be clear on what you love to show & what you want to minimize on your body.

Legs should be no where on the minimizing list, if it is a sheer see through wrap with a long opening should do the trick . The # 1 concern of most curvy woman is how to minimize the tummy area. I suggest trying on a one piece swimsuit  that has a spandex lining, it should work as if the swimsuit had its own control garment. For The women with the more adventurous sexy  souls, a high waist bottom 2 piece swimsuit,  again make sure its lined, should help to minimize the tummy area.

Find a swimsuit that has beautiful summer colors, the sun reflection off bright colours helps to minimize & accentuate your figure .

[dropcap color=”” boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”50%” class=”” id=””]L[/dropcap]orem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text.

It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, or non-characteristic words.
