The elusive perfect bikini

April 16, 2008 / 283 Comments

Summer is almost here and you know what that means — time to get a new swimsuit!

A good-fitting swimsuit is hard find! For me I only like tie bottoms because its hard for me to find bottoms I like. I also think one piece swim suits are great to wear with a long skirt. It makes an easy beach outfit.

It is important to get your correct size and not try to squeeze into something that fits too tight! I really like Sassi Bikinis which I’m wearing in these photos. (You can see more pics of me in my purple Sassi swimsuit here, too.)

Along with the perfect swimsuit, you must have…

1. Sunscreen is way more important than you think! You need it even if you aren’t going to the beach!

2. Accessories like big sunglasses, which not only shade you from the sun, but are fabulous when you have no make up on and want to hide a little bit! ;)

3. A great pair of flip flops… my casual favorite are Havianas and for a little more dressy its Mystique sandals.

4. A beach cover up. My favorite is a sarong! It covers up the bottom half so you can walk around and not feel too naked, yet it doesn’t cover you up on top, so you still get a good tan.
