In the swim ... a suit for your body type

If you’ve been putting off swimsuit shopping, and I certainly wouldn’t blame you, Kohl’s has a few tips to help you find a suit to fit your style and body shape.  I’m all for any information that will help make the swimswuit shopping experience easier. How about you?

“Accentuate hourglass shapes with the latest one-piece silhouettes or go for a more playful look with halter tops and boy short bottoms in the season’s top neon colors. Tankinis and skirtinis work well for curvy physiques, while athletic shapes can easily add curves with a monokini or classic bikini,” said Sofia Wacksman, vice president of trend and color for Kohl’s.

Some of the trends to watch for include high-waisted bottoms, vintage styling, glamour looks and bold color.
