It’s been a cold and icy winter across a good portion of US this year—a long winter at that! But good news is around the corner: swimsuit season is almost here. Granted, summer still has a few months until its arrival, but Spring Break is nearly here.
Did I hear groans out there? Not to worry! Shopping online for this year’s new swimsuit thwarts the horror of trying on swimsuits under fluorescent lights and in front of distorting mirrors. To me, there’s nothing worse than looking at my pasty-white, winter body in a public dressing room. I ordered my 2014 swimsuit online right before my February vacation, and it was a success.
Aside from the drab dressing room scenarios, there are so many more reasons for online swimsuit shopping.
Here are Three Reasons to Order Swimwear Online:
1) Online shopping provides so many visual cues. Seeing a swimsuit on a body can help you to visualize how the suit will fit you. At HerRoom, we offer lingerie and swimsuits for real women with real curves. You can see that in the photos for each style. You can find a body type similar to yours and know that you’re going to achieve a similar swimsuit fit—unlike buying off of a store rack.
2) You can mix and match. Swimsuit tops and bottoms are most often sold as separates. My bust size is two sizes smaller than my hips and rear. I love string bikini tops but never feel comfortable in the bottoms that typically accompanying them. Ordering my swimsuit online enabled me to pick the skimpier top I love and pair it with skirted swim bottom that offers me better coverage.
3) At the click of a button, you can find suits available in your bra size. You can sort HerRoom’s swimsuit offerings by size, which will give you just the suits for you. This way you avoid falling in love with a print or color only to find out after rummaging through store racks that it’s not in your size.
