I just ran across this absolutely adorable swimsuit from an online swimwear shop that I had never seen before called Swim Feen.  They have selected really great swimwear to feature on that site.  This one is a perfect example.  The colorful colors are perfect if you are going for a fun neon wetsuit type of look.  Notice that the swimsuit has reasonable support with thicker straps.

This is the type of swimsuit that can make a smaller chest look great, and make shorter legs look longer.  For her bust line, the thick purple detail adds interest and that hint of skin where the straps go down in the classic Norma Kamali style gives a peek a boo at extra skin and makes the chest area look very exciting.  Likewise on the swimsuit bottom, the higher waist of the purple strap gives the legs a longer look, while meanwhile coverage is there with the pink strap too.

Bright colors can be fetching, especially when they are accenting features effectively.  In this case, the bust looks interesting and the legs are lengthened with the purple high waisted bikini bottom strap.  You can take this color blocking to the concept of a one piece, and just look for straps of bright color as well as interesting cutouts on the one piece swimsuit.  This site Swim Feen had some really great cut out swimsuits and remarkably reasonable prices.  It is really cute and minimizes the thighs while making her legs look long with the high strap.

Did you know that some slender women have horrible cellulite? Cellulite is not always related to being over weight. It is more related to genetics and having gained or lost a substantial amount of weight which leads to skin losing its elasticity. Some women have tougher skin that can bounce back from weight gain, whereas others are not so lucky. The loose skin drapes down and gravity forces it downward. If you don’t have enough muscle tone under the skin to provide a good base for it, the loose skin just exacerbates the look of cellulite.

How to minimize the appearance of cellulite

The first way that you can minimize cellulite is to do strength training such as the nautilus machines at the gym. Walking might help maintain a figure but you need more than that to tone up. You need resistance training. This is what helps you get a good foundation of muscle tone under the skin which always helps minimize the appearance of cellulite.

Unfortunately, a bathing suit is not going to cover your lower legs and so women with dimple cellulite have a real problem donning a swimsuit without feeling self-conscious. Never fear, you can definitely still play at the beach and in the sun. Just do what the famous do, throw on a yoga pant and pair it with a halter swimsuit top or a bandeuau top. This is such a great trick for smoothing and covering cellulite while still looking beach appropriate.

Flatter shorter legs

Try white as this really goes well with summer.  If white is too see-through you can go with black just pair it with a bright or light color swimsuit top. For women with shorter legs, yoga pants are a god send. They look great on the body and men love the look of yoga pants! While yoga pants that flair out into a slight bell at the bottom are less fashionable than the slim leg style, they are still big winners for women with short legs. Try them, and you will see how cute they can make a figure look.  The slight flair a the bottom gives a mermaid illusion and makes the body look shapely.  Cellulite will go from being an eyesore to being a body feature!  The reason is that the pants are stretchy and cover the bum area acting look a bit of  a girdle.

What is so great about doubling a pair of yoga pants as beach pants is that they really flatter a heavier body.  No two yoga pants are made the same. Be sure to try them on and get the best fit for your figure. The style with the fold over top looks great on women who have a smaller waist paired with a bigger than average bottom. Yoga pants really flatter curvy figures. So next time you are at the beach or pool, try coupling your bikini top with fresh white yoga pants and a cute pair of thongs with painted toes. You will look beach ready, without having to feel self-conscious of unconstrained jiggle. The yoga pant style is a great idea and they make for adorable and figure flattering beach pants. Woo hoo this may be a great idea that you may not have thought of!

This white pair of yoga pants are adorable, they would work great at the beach, just juxtapose her at the beach and you get the idea.  Try a cute halter top or a bright color top to further draw the onlookers attention upward and away from problem areas.  This gives you a free body lift and diverts the eyes from your cellulite.  This cute girl gets it right with a yoga pant sporty look.   Just know that these white yoga pants would work equally well at the beach as long as they are coupled with a bikini top and a dainty pair of flip-flops.

Swimsuits for short legs

Did you know that certain types of monokinis are quite flattering for women who have short legs and/or petite figures? There are! Particularly for shorter legs, swimsuits that cut up high on the outer leg will do wonders. Think back to the high cut leg swimsuits that Christie Brinkley used to wear back in the day.

If your leg is short, the worst thing that you can do is wear a hipster swimsuit, a low-slung bottom, or a low waisted bottom. You want to create a longer illusion of the leg instead. Do this by wearing a swimsuit with a higher cut outer leg. Whether it be with a scoop bottom, tie side, or monokini, you definitely want to expose more outer leg and have the swimsuit sit much higher on your leg. This will create the look of more skin and the look of a longer, leaner leg.

As you can see with this particular swimsuit, if you have some skin up the leg and side of body showing, it creates a longer leg illusion. Another tip for short legs is to wear a wedge heel. Wedge heels are casual and beach appropriate, yet give a short-legged girl more height, which makes their legs look longer. Select a wedge shoe that is a natural tan color and blends with the leg. A monokini style bikini paired with wedge heels in a neutral color will visually add inches to short legs.
