Summer 2007 Swimwear Guide

Cameron Diaz - Boyish
Look for bold patterns, prints and details like frills, ruffles and embroidery.
Create curves with a high-cut swimsuit or bikini with details on the hips - ties, rings or bows.

Get suits that have under-wires and molded bras to add emphasis to the bust line.

Princess seaming and piping help create shape.

Avoid skimpy bikinis which will emphasis the boyish figure more.

Support is key. Therefore, choose swimsuits with under-wire and wider straps to give the extra lift.

Color blocking, princess seams to help with tummy camouflage.

Halter neck suit adds torso length while supporting the bust.

Lower necklines will draw attention to a shapely bust.

Get swimsuits which have vertical seam details or shaped panels to slim your curves.

Dark, cool colors have a slimming effect.

Higher cut leg opening elongates the legs.

Having waist details like belts accentuates the waist.

Avoid strapless and skimpy swimsuits that do not have good bust or derriere support.
