The trick to finding one that fits, flatters, and won’t fall apart
Yonkers, NY — For most women, shopping for bathing suits is not a very fun experience. Most suits are too tight, too small, too big, too expensive, or look too cheap. Or all of the above! The July 2011 issue of ShopSmart magazine, from the publisher of Consumer Reports¸ wants to help you find the most flattering suit that you’ll at least look forward to wearing.
“We all know bathing suit shopping can be a nightmare,” said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor-in-chief of ShopSmart. “But we learned that if you do your research and know what works for you— it might actually be enjoyable.”
9 Signs of a Well-made Suit
A cheaply made swimsuit or one that’s poorly designed can make you look bigger or older than you really are. ShopSmart notes that a well-made suit should last up to two years or longer if you rotate it with other suits. Rinse immediately after wearing, then hand wash, and your suits will last even longer.
