The truth is, you do a lot more in your swimsuit then swim…
I think one of the biggest mistake women make when buying a swimsuit is opting for something that is too revealing. It is always better to suggest than to show too much. You must choose a shape that is flattering to your figure, and one that you are comfortable wearing. There is no point going for something risque, low cut, or high cut if you are continually fiddling or adjusting it. Pick something in which you feel confident.
The most important detail is how you feel when you wear it. If you feel good in it, then it will be the sexiest suit ever - as it will change the way you move and hold yourself.
Other than that - my top tip is to opt for a high spandex body sculptor-type fabric - this will help hold you in and create a streamlined silhouette. A one shoulder style is sexy and modern at the same time. If you are brave or body confident then cut-outs will add an edge with a sexy twist. ( though definitely not my style! )
One-piece bustiers are always popular. They are very flattering and you can avoid tan lines from any bikini strap. I think that a one piece works better on a boat, perhaps under a caftan, while the two-piece is better for sunbathing and the beach.
If you are looking for a sleek and flattering look then your option might be an edgy one- piece, on the other hand for a “girly” sexy vibe, a pretty two-piece might be the right choice. But you must have the right figure for that triangle bikini ! you need to work on those abs!
