The pleasure of travel has officially commenced for the summer season and it's time to show off the new swim I've been wearing this summer for my upcoming trip to Panama.

Below are some of my favorite swimsuits I've accumulated this summer. I've also included some tips to show you how to find the perfect summer bathing suit. Happy traveling!

Want to find a swimsuit that fits you best? Here’s how to successfully:


1. Remember that every size doesn’t equal the same coverage


I used to work at a swimsuit store, and I can’t tell you how many times a customer would try on a suit and demand a bigger size. It’s not the size that’s the issue- it’s the coverage. Not all suits cover the same amount of skin. Eventually, swimsuits stretch over time and you would hate to see a bikini that you love to go to waste. Just like how there are little bikinis that show skin, there are bikinis that provide full coverage and will cover more skin than others. Decide what kind of coverage to go for, then find a suit that caters to your needs.


2. Padding isn’t always necessary


I always assumed people wore padding to add more cleavage factor to an outfit. I’m the complete opposite- I hate all things about padding. As a proud 32B, you would think I would appreciate the extra goods. But not me. I feel it gets in the way and causes too much fabric to be in the front of my chest. Don’t you hate when the padding folds up inside? If it’s not needed, take it out.



3. If all else fails, get it tailored!


I just started going to the cleaners and tailor within the past two years, I’m not sure how I was managing before. If all else fails, go to the tailor and let a professional sew and hem your swimsuits. It's usually very inexpensive and better to get a customized suit that caters to your body than suffering with one that doesn’t fit. As I said in my first point, the swimsuit will stretch over time. Go to a seamstress or tailor and let them fix your garment to your liking.

 

I hope these tips helped. What’s one piece of advice you would give to people shopping for swimsuits?
