You’ve waited patiently for over a year; now, it’s finally time to plan your next vacation. As more COVID-19 travel restrictions are being lifted, you’re free to jet off to a tropical paradise. But before you can plan your getaway, you first need to decide what you’re going to wear at the beach.
It’s important to travel safely, but you also want to travel in style. You’re looking for a new swimsuit that accentuates your curves and sits comfortably on your figure. With so many different styles of swimwear available, it’s tough to know where to start. We’ve put together the top 8 swimsuits to consider when you’re travelling in 2022:
What To Consider When Choosing A Swimsuit?
You’re looking for swimwear in Canada that’s flattering and functional. When you’re shopping online or sifting through retail racks, keep an eye out for the following qualities:
Is it supportive enough?
Depending on how much support and lift you’re looking for from a swimsuit, you might opt for one with an underwire or shaped cups. If you often struggle to find supportive swimwear, look for bra sized swimwear. These styles are designed to provide the fit and support similar to a bra. If you’re simply looking to lounge on the shoreline, you might opt for cups without structure or wire instead.
Does it offer UV protection?
Different types of fabric will offer more or less protection against the sun. A one piece swimsuit may cover more of your skin, but you might still get a sunburn if the fabric lacks UV protection. Before making your purchase, consider how different materials hold up in the heat.
How comfortable does it feel?
You want to enjoy the sparkling water, the warm sunshine, and the scenic skyline. What you don’t want is to worry about uncomfortable, poorly-fitting swimwear.
Regardless of how trendy the swimsuit might be, if it doesn’t feel comfortable, it will probably stay in a drawer. You need swimwear that is breathable, versatile, and designed to fit your body.
How quickly does it dry?
A bathing suit that retains water will weigh you down and leave puddles everywhere you walk. You might prefer pieces that dry more quickly and hold less water.
Finally, when it comes to choosing the right set of swimwear, the most important thing is that you feel good about the way it makes you look. Whether that’s in a one piece swimsuit or a bikini top, choose a style that makes you feel confident and chic.
