Now that summer is here, it’s time to start thinking about holidays and, more specifically, what you’re going to wear for sunbathing around the pool. Many women are nervous about donning their swimwear in public, especially since the last few months have not been great weather-wise. When you’re wearing swimwear, there’s nowhere to hide that post-food tummy, or those less than toned thighs. The good news is that you don’t have to go on a strict diet to look hot in your swimwear. Follow my simple tips below and I can guarantee that you’ll look and feel body confident in your swimwear this summer.

Exercise the fun way

I completely agree with you that the thought of strenuous exercise is not a pleasant one. However, did you know that hula hooping provides a fantastic abdominal workout? Even better, it’s great fun so you can laugh away all of those extra calories in no time. Try to do 30 minute sessions of hula hooping at least three times a week. Count how many rotations you can do before it drops.

Buff yourself beautiful

One sure fire way to feel amazing in your swimwear this summer is to make sure that your skin is oh so soft and smooth. Invest in a sugar scrub and use an exfoliating mitt to slough away dry, dead skin. Do this every night in the shower and your skin will be silky smooth in just one week’s time. And if you feel confident in your skin, then you will ooze confidence in your swimwear too, making you look great.

Fake it

One of the reasons we love to sunbathe is because we feel more confident about our bodies when we’re tanned. That lovely golden glow makes us look healthier and feel slimmer. Well, why wait until your holiday is over to get that feeling? Recreate it beforehand with a bottle of fake tan. This will instantly hide any cellulite and give you a slimmer silhouette. Just be warned that it may wash off in the chlorinated swimming pool.

Buy some new swimwear

It’s a well-known fact that you feel great when you’re wearing new clothes – after all, who wants to wear the same bikini two years in a row? So this year, invest in a new set of swimwear and poolside accessories. There is a huge range of swimwear at as well as poolside cover ups to take you from day to night. Simply choose your favourite colour and style and you’ll be ready to sunbathe like a pro. Curvy ladies look great in halterneck bikinis while slimmer figures should opt for padding and ruffles to add curves.

Opt for a one-piece

The good news for all of you shy ladies out there is that the one-piece swimsuit style is hot this year. The best part is that it instantly makes you look slimmer which will give you all of the beach body confidence you require to look hot. Draw attention away from your stomach by avoiding swimsuits with detailing around your middle area. Instead, opt for a one-piece swimsuit with ruffle detailing around the neckline to draw attention to your best asset. High leg styles will instantly elongate your legs making them look leaner too. Steer clear of all black swimsuits as they can wash you out – a brightly coloured swimsuit will emphasise your tan more and you’ll look way better in all of your holiday snaps.
