The 10 Biggest Swimsuit Don’ts

While we’re all for showing a little skin and flaunting that hot bod of yours, we also think that lingerie is best left to the bedroom and that full-bottom bikinis were invented for a very, very good reason. Before you head out to enjoy the surf, sand and sun, soak up these easy-peasy swimsuit pointers.

1.  DON’T do the walking-advertisement bikini thing.

DON’T do the walking-advertisement bikini thing.
Not only does this lady look likes she’s on the job for Corona, she’ll inevitably be forced to defend herself against Jersey Shore look-alikes who might mistake her for their favorite beverage. MTV addicts, attempt this swimsuit look at your own risk!

2.  DON’T wear a swimsuit with a zillion and one straps.

3.  DON’T wear a swimsuit with a zillion and one straps.

Sure, we’ve all been tempted by the sexy, strap-ilicious one-piece swimsuit, but be forewarned: A bathing suit like this one is going to leave you with a maze of trippy tan lines. Try matching those with your cutest summer dresses.

4.  DON’T go for a cover-up that doesn’t,

you know, cover you up.

DON’T go for a cover-up that doesn’t, you know, <em>cover</em> you up.
Less isn’t always more. These two lovely ladies have proved that theory multiple times over. When thinking of what to wear over your swimsuit, keep in mind the dress code of the nearest restaurant—chances are, if you’re spending a day in the sun, you’ll get the munchies round high noon. (Hint: These two getups most definitely won’t fit in with the universal “No Shirt No Shoes No Service” rule.)
DON’T adjust your bathing suit in public (unless you can keep it on the DL).

5.  DON’T adjust your bathing suit in public (unless you can keep it on the DL).

(Although which of us hasn’t made this adjustment a thousand times!!! 🙂 )

Straps get untied while tanning, bikini bottoms are woefully underprepared for water sports, and the ocean is a nasty monster when it comes to keeping the girls in place—we get it. At the risk of sounding like your grandma (or some Emily Post lifeguard), might we suggest popping into the bathroom if you’re having a serious swimsuit wardrobe malfunction—as X-rated contortions are rarely flattering.

DON’T wear a swimsuit that could double as lure-him-in lingerie.

6.  DON’T wear a swimsuit that could double as lure-him-in lingerie.

Some looks are best kept inside the bedroom. While your boyfriend might be appreciative, leave a little to the imagination by keeping the lingerie back at the hotel.
DON’T forget the sunscreen. Really. It’s not worth it.

7.  DON’T forget the sunscreen. Really. It’s not worth it.

Ouch! Yes, we’ve all been burnt before, but if you want to keep your skin soft and supple—and wrinkle-free!—you must, must, must slather on the sunscreen. You don’t want to risk melanoma—or having to uncomfortably shift in your seat 42 times during dinner later that evening.
DON’T bring your super-high dancing shoes to the beach.

8.  DON’T bring your super-high dancing shoes to the beach.

In a word: impractical. Music-video vixens make it look easy, but there’s no way you can walk on the beach
in those high heels. If it’s glitz and glamour you crave, just bedazzle your flips-flops to keep things comfy, chic and sane.
DON’T do an itty-bitty bikini bottom on a public beach.

9.  DON’T do an itty-bitty bikini bottom on a public beach.

As a rule of thumb, the bottom of your bikini should be thicker than the straps holding it together up top.
Regardless of your shape or size, an X-rated swimsuit like this is simply a no-no. (While we’re at it,
can we ban Speedos for men, too?)
DON’T buy a too-small swimsuit top.

10.  DON’T buy a too-small swimsuit top.

We know better than anyone how frustrating it is to find the perfect swimsuit (have you seen our swimsuit style stories?!), so trust us when we say a little extra time in the dressing room or cruising around online is totally worth it. Look for a mix ‘n’ match bikini where you can buy the top and bottom in different sizes—so you can get something that fits and flatters your cute figure to a T. (And if you’re on the fence about a style, maybe even bounce up and down a bit to guarantee a flash-free fit, before you take your suit out for a spin.)

  Look for colors that will flatter you before and after you tan.

Don’t assume that black and white are safe. If you are extremely fair-skinned a black or stark white bathing suit could make you look ashen. Shiny fabrics usually look good if you are model thin. If you are an average to large size woman, a shiny bathing suit will add pounds to your frame.  Color blocking is another way to emphasize your attributes and de-emphasize your problem areas. If you have large hips, choose suits that have a dark color block on the bottom. If you have a large bust and small hips, the opposite might be beneficial. Similarly, color blocks on your midsection can accentuate your waistline.
