How To Pull Off A Swimsuit: 10 Easy Ways to Look and Feel Fabulous!

At Change of Scenery, we believe that every body deserves to feel confident and comfortable in their swimsuit. That’s why we incorporate details such as power compression mesh liner and full cheek coverage in every style. We understand that finding the perfect swimsuit can be a challenge, but fear not! We’ve compiled a list of ten easy and effective ways to help you rock your swimsuit with style and confidence.

1. Dress to Accentuate Your Best Features

Understanding your body type and recognizing your favorite features is crucial when selecting the right swimsuit. Opt for pieces that flatter your best assets (great boobs, small waist, long legs!), whether it’s emphasizing curves or providing support in specific areas. 

2. Dark Shades for Sleek Silhouettes

Dark colors such as black, navy or auburn work wonders in creating a slimmer appearance. Explore styles with intriguing cut-outs to add a touch of allure and sophistication to your beach look and break up the dark color. These shades are sophisticated, timeless, and forgiving

3. Elevate Your Poolside Look with Easy and Versatile Coverups

Accessorize your swimwear with our stylish separates coverups like the Melanie Pareo or the Jenni Skirt. These pieces effortlessly complement your beach attire, providing a casual yet refined look. The best part - they cover your bits while still showcasing your poolside style. Ditch the old denim shorts or beach towel and opt for a much chicer option that offers versatility, allowing you to move seamlessly throughout your day from the pool to lunch to the beach to cocktails.

4. Explore Textured Fabrics

Choose a textured fabric when exploring solid color for your swimsuits. Our signature recycled textured stripe fabric not only adds depth and interest to your swim look, but it also feels thick and secure (read: sucks you in!) Plus, the fabric reads as a stripe, and because the ribbed pattern is vertically orientated it helps to elongate the body by drawing the eye up and down versus side to side. 

Stay tuned for our expanded range of textured styles and color, including neon brights for Spring and Summer 2024!

5. Distract with Print and Pattern

Explore the charm of playful allover prints like our hand-painted Tropical Garden, Mosaic and Animal Dot prints. Wearing a busy print swimsuit diverts attention by keeping the eye moving around, looking for a place to rest, which helps to camouflage any lumps and bumps.

6. Flattering Necklines That Highlight Your Best Features

Explore various neckline styles to highlight your best features. When you want to distract from your heavy bottom half, emphasize your top half. For example, a sexy plunging neckline like our best-selling Niki One Piece will focus all eyes on your bust and face, while the waistband defines the waist. Or, consider a high neckline such as our Daphne style, which narrows the shoulders to highlight the bust and gives the illusion of a smaller waist.

7. Embrace the Magic of Ruching

Light ruching across the front torso is a game-changer, masking imperfections and creating the illusion of a slimmer waist and torso. But too much ruching can feel moderate. Most of our Change of Scenery one piece styles feature the perfect amount of light ruching for a flattering and confident beach-ready look.

8. Define Your Waist with Belted Styles

Make a splash in a swim style featuring a belt detail. A belt serves as a transition point between the upper and lower body – it highlights the torso and shows off one's proportions. Moreover, it adds an elevated finishing touch to your look. Our new Daphne One Piece features a slim waist belt with gold trim, providing definition and accentuating your curves.

9. Sexy Yet Covered in the Perfect High-Waisted Bottoms

If you haven’t tried a bikini in awhile, now is the time! Opt for our Side Tie High Waist Bottom or Classic High Waist Bottom, each designed with the perfect cheek coverage and featuring a power compression liner for ultimate comfort. These designs offer confidence-boosting coverage, exposing only a band of skin that many women feel most comfortable showing off. 

10. Embrace Bikini Bottoms with Adjustable Ties

When it comes to feeling sexy and comfortable in your own skin, finding that perfect bikini bottom is key! Explore bikini bottoms with adjustable ties such as our Side Tie High Waist Bottom or new Double Tie Midrise Bottom. The adjustable ties allow for a personalized fit, eliminating any discomfort or “pinching” caused by elastic at the top edge. Translation — your stomach appears flat.  While most tie bottoms are “cheeky,” we provide two great options that will make you feel covered but sexy.

Remember, the key to feeling fabulous in a swimsuit is confidence, and confidence is achieved with identifying the right style for you! With these ten easy tips and our carefully designed swimwear collection, you’ll be ready to embrace the beach or pool with style and grace. Don’t let the daunting task of finding the perfect swimsuit hold you back from enjoying time with family and friends on vacation. And remember, when you’re swimsuit shopping, put your vanity aside and forget about the size tag. The fit is most important, and no one can see the label but you. Embrace your unique beauty, and step out confidently in our range of swimwear designed to make you feel your absolute best!
