What Suit Best Fits My Body Type?
brought to you by Swimsuits For All

This special swim-wear piece we have for you today was prepared especially by the special ladies at Swimsuits For All, and gives us hints on what the ideal swim-suit of choice should be, according to the different body shapes. 
Swimsuits For All feature one of the biggest collections of plus size swimwear to be found online, whilst providing a hassle free online purchasing experience, making shopping for swimsuits online a breeze.

Triangle Shaped BodyTriangle Shaped Body:
Your hips are wider than your bust. I suggest looking for a swimsuit with a bright colored or patterned top to create the look of cleavage with dark bikini briefs to minimize the butt and hip area. You can also opt for swim-dresses or skirtinis to help cover your problem area.

Hourglass Figure:
Your hips and shoulders are equal width with a defined waist. This body shape is the ideal. You can wear almost anything. An hourglass figure can try on swimsuits that will help to accentuate the wait. You can also look for vivid colors and patterns to keep the eye moving.

Rectangle Shaped Body:
The width of your body from shoulders to hips is relatively the same. You should look for swimsuits that have detailing or a pattern around the waistline to create the illusion of a curvy silhouette. Look for a swimsuit that will help define the waist.

Inverted Triangle Shaped Figure:
Your shoulders are wider than your hips. Women with this body shape can get away with wearing as many halter tops as they want. The straps help to cut the width of the shoulders. Also look for a skirtini that will help to create the illusion of hips.

Don’t forget to add a stylish cover-up to your beach wardrobe! You never know when you are going to need one.

Introducing... the Voluptuous Bath Wrap™

This month we have discovered a little item which we are pretty you sure will be interested in knowing more about… at least we definitely were!

Have you ever found it hard to find beach and batch towels which were big enough to wrap around? Do you always hurry and rush to dress up after having a bath or shower, since you cannot relax and lounge about because your towel doesn’t cover up all your curves. Well, we definitely know what that feels like, so we were really pleased and actually quite surprised to find out about the Voluptuous Bath Wrap™.

Made out of 100% terry velour, the Voluptuous Bath Wrap feels gorgeous against your skin. The wrap is 75 inches wide (fitting women from size 14 up to size 30) and 30 inches long for complete coverage of your body. For extra convenience, the bath wrap is machine washable.

The original and unique Voluptuous Bath Wrap can be used in the following ways:
  • As a cover-up after a shower or bath
  • In the Summer as a swimsuit cover-up
  • During spa services – facials, body treatments, etc
  • When lounging at home
To take a closer look at this gorgeous bath wrap, and to order yours today, visit the Voluptuous Bath Wrap™ website today!

Professional ladyFirst, a beauty makeup tip would be to purchase these items, a good moisturizer, and an easy to apply foundation, eye shadow, eye concealer, blush, and mascara. That’s it. Do not go over board on your beauty routine during the times you have to rush off to work.

Now, for the quick makeup application tip. First, if you can do without foundation, skip it. Do not forget the moisturizer; your skin needs the extra moisture. If you cannot do without the foundation, the quickest way to apply the foundation is to dot your forehead, chin, nose and cheeks. Now, with a sponge or a tad damp cloth smooth the foundation until it is blended completely on your face. Pay close to attention to your hairline, chin and jaw line. Applying the foundation will take the longest. Always remember to smooth upward, when you rub downward, you are only helping those wrinkles find their way.
