I noticed in the Spring 2014 when all the new swim attire began to hit store shelves that a weird trend has happened; none of the swimwear was going to be "easy" to work with. After having gained about 5 pounds at my new, chaotic-scheduled job, I wasn't entirely comfortable with wearing a bikini, and the swimsuit I had from last year was wearing a little thin in the butt. I had gone to multiple stores to find a swimsuit that fit my needs, and I resorted to doing the big asymmetric no-no and bought ONLINE without trying anything on! *GASP!* Here's what I discovered about this new swimwear trend...
As of right now, it's almost guaranteed whatever swimsuit you purchase will have padding. Thank goodness for that, because padding is an asymmetry must-have. However, many of the new swimsuits don't afford the wearer the opportunity to adjust the top. I'm a FIRM believer that if you're asymmetric, you absolutely must either purchase a halter-style top, or a top that's like a bra and has a huge ability to adjust WITHOUT the material being too elastic and allowing for too much "give" (which will allow one breast to sag a little lower, due to how much heavier it is).
However, this year was really the year for a mix of swimwear. I'm 100% about that vintage, pinup girl, throwback look. That's my thing. I'll be totally honest with you, it's attractive, it's sexy, and many of those vintage looks will hide your asymmetry like crazy. Let me explain. You see, many of the vintage styles will hide asymmetry because they're halter types. The only problem comes with WHERE the straps are placed on the top itself. Let me show you what I mean.
I hope everyone had a great swim year!
Remember, you and your asymmetry are perfectly imperfect and absolutely beautiful!
