Swimwear Fashions to Move You!
The long-range forecast for this summer calls for a hotter than usual season, so try on your present bathing suit. Our bodies change a little every year, sometimes due to weight loss or gain. It may be time for a new look. You want to be ready to go when the weather gets really warm.
Close to You has an excellent selection of bathing suits, with sizes up to 24W. One-piece, two-piece and some with skirts. Keep in mind that we do carry bathing suits year-round, which comes in handy for that last-minute winter get-away.
Amoena specializes in bras, so their bathing suit tops will fit with the support you’re looking for. Their swim bras are made in Italy, have ‘VITA’ fabric for durable wear and matching bottoms available. Pembrooke adds ‘tummy control’ to their bathing suits, which we all like. Anita gives that extra life with “Lycra that moves you”. Try some suits on and choose the one that’s right for you.
The variety of sun hats by Sun and Sand, Memories and Eclissy are stunning. They’re an absolute must to prevent heat stroke and will block the sun when reading. Oh, be sure to check out the sunglasses satisfying elegant, cool or funky tastes.
To complete the look, you’ll need a new cover-up that will take you from the beach to the dining room for lunch. Short ones, long ones, great wrap-arounds and some come with a smaller matching purse that’ll fit into your beach tote, ready to go when you are.
Flipflops are still the most popular footwear for the beach or around the pool, and now you have more choices than ever before. Why not try an embellished style or a sandal that’s washable?
Just a reminder – ALWAYS rinse your bathing suit after each wearing. This will keep your colors vibrant and get rid of any chlorine.
When it’s time to wash your bathing suit it pays to use a good quality laundry soap. We’ve recommended ‘Forever New’ for years, suitable for all lingerie and for the clothes you love. “It preserves elasticity, so clothing keeps its fit and shape” – a good feature for bathing suits.
We’re also carrying a new product called ‘soak’. With this laundry soap you just soak and squeeze, no need to rinse. Ideal for knits, lingerie, swimwear, hosiery, quilts and even baby clothes. No rinse means low suds. Dirt and oil are pulled from your fabric.
Both products are gentle formulas derived from plants.
Here’s to looking great in your new swimwear!
