When traveling on #GradTrip or simply heading to the beach, young adults are constantly tasked with the struggle of rummaging through their suitcases and debating which bathing suit they're going to wear.
Here's a guide to learn about what your choice of bather says about you.
The One Piece -- "I Simply Do Not Care"
You did it. You were truthfully bold enough to pull out the one piece from either your old neighbourhood swim team/lessons, or are embracing a new trend. You are modest and most certainly practical. This bathing suit really hugs your body, so if you have an hour glass shape this bather will highlight your waistline, and play up your best assets. You'll be diving deep all day with not a worry in the world about this thing popping off.
Although, you may want to reconsider those tan-lines.
The Teeny Bikini
Ah - the classic, itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini. Not only is this a classic, but also a go too. You my friend, are confident, look good, and most definitely want everyone to know that you are aware of this. These typical bikinis may be best-suited for the practical 21st century beach bum, but certainly are lacking in the originality department. Sorry to say it.
The Strapless - "I am a wave or two away from this thing coming off."
A nightmare for when you have a big bust, but perfect for getting a nice tan-line-free tan. This is without a doubt your bathing suit ideal, when tasked with the chore of beginning your summer tan and doing nothing but lounging on the beach chair. You sure don't require a lot of support for this one, and like to feel free. You're most likely the type to go with the flow, ya know.
The Halter - Holla for support
This bathing suit is perfect for those with a larger bust, looking for some extra support! The thick straps on this one make it more comfortable, and it will certainly hold everything in.
The Mix and Matcher -- So you don't have 1857 different bathing suits?
You are what I like to call the "mix and matcher". You are cost efficient, have a good eye, and like to keep things fresh to death! Get way more wear out of the small amount of bathers you've got. People want to travel with you because you are a light packer, fun, and eaaaaasy goin'.
The Thong - Lets stick to the private pool.
This Brazilian style bottom is pretty cheeky to say the least. When there's just about as much material in the front as there is in the back, there's a good chance that you don't care too much about making people feel uncomfortable. You are either very bold or are keeping this bather for the chill pool days with a few friends nearby. Not to say this bather is not stylish or trendy, because this beach bum is going to be rocking less tan lines than you!
Whether you're going to spend your summer frolicking in the beach, tanning outside, or doing any tropical travel, one thing is for sure- it is bathing suit season. The two most important things to think about are personal style and fit! Women should be careful to not only choose bather that suits their personality, and style, but fits them like a glove.
