Swimwear that suits your body type

It's that time of year again, the one most of us dread — swimsuit season. We're on a mission to help you love swimsuit shopping just as much as you love shoe shopping (well, almost). With a few simple tricks, you can find the perfect swimsuit for your shape without feeling like you have to have a few cocktails and plastic surgery before you hit the stores.

What if we told you that swimsuit shopping doesn't have to be a bizarre form of torture? Whether you are small-chested, one month postpartum or just don't really love showing off your midsection, there is a suit out there just for you. The secret is knowing your body type before you go so that you can look for something that will flatter your shape. If you know what to look for, then you can save time and your pride by not trying on things that will likely make you want to avoid the beach for the entire season. Here's to turning swimsuit season into our favourite season!
