I know how hard it is to get into the summer spirit living with bipolar weather, for if there is one thing we have learned from this past winter, it would be to NEVER trust a groundhog! Fear not though, for summer days are coming and we must be prepared to hit the beach running when nature calls. Whichever body type you may be, the 2013 swimwear trends certainty have something for everyone. Just remember that the best trend overall is confidence and these trends are here to help accentuate that confidence making you the hottest, sun-kissed girl on the beach, sitting poolside, or at the lake. From the runway to your local clothing stores, these trends are only a shopping experience away from being yours.


  High Waist

This trend compliments any curvy shape by accentuating the hips and waistline, hides any figure flaws for the full figured woman and highlights the legs, giving off the illusion of length.

Making its way into the trend pool again this year are ruffles. Ruffles are great for adding volume. If the ruffles are in the top, the bust will appear larger making it a great trend for the pear shaped woman. In addition, for the top heavy fashionista, ruffles on the bottom help balance out the hip and bust area.

Shoulder Emphasis

Many swimwear designs this season focus the attention on the upper arm and shoulder area. This is a great trend for our triangle shaped fashionista, because it helps balance out your shoulders and hips.
