Carly’s top 5 tips for the perfect sexy-shape swimwear this summer:
1. Choose quality
Look for quality in the fabric, cut and final finish of your swimsuits. Some products may have a great cut but they have cut corners on things like fabric quality , UPF50+ rating or lining.
UNE PIECE use the most beautiful Italian lycra, fully lined that have the highest UPF50+ rating. We also hand illustrate our print designs so they are unique and special.
2. Know your colour
Know what colours work best on you and stick to it for swimsuits – I’m a big fan of getting my colours done (I had my colours done when I was living in London working for Revlon Cosmetics. It’s a simple process where a consultant matches what colours work for your skintone). It’s not expensive and it guides all my purchasing decisions now.
3. Perfect your print
Not all prints are created equal. While they are fun they can be highly unflattering. Go for prints that have good base colours that work for you and also patterns that are flattering rather than merely attention grabbing.
We have created the most stunning hand-illustrated Botanical Floral print this season as well as two leopard prints (snow and traditional leopard) – I agonised for weeks over getting the print size ‘just right’ so that women look amazing.
4. Trust your gut
If you put it on and love it – buy it. Maybe even buy two. If you put it on and have to convince yourself. Leave it.
5. Things to look for in a swimsuit that that ‘universally flatter’ the figure
Anything that can accentuate your natural shape, contour in the right places, seams that help create long lines, and twists that cinch and divert the eye are all amazing to help you feel confident and look beautiful by the water.
