    Hi, my name is Krista Landgraf and I am the swimwear buyer at South Moon Under. Today, we are showing you how to find the perfect swimsuit for your figure. Right now I would like to go over some one-piece bathing suits, cover-ups and swimwear accessories that work great for every body type.

    First, we have Amanda who is wearing one of the sexiest one-piece swimsuits in the industry. This bathing suit is a goddess suit, has a little bit of rooshing around the waist that works well for camouflaging any tummy issues, and also gives you a great curve and a nice figure. The rooshing on the top part of the bust is great for a large bust line because it accommodates a fuller cup, but the rooshing also will tend to give a smaller bust a fuller effect. The leg line is moderate, not too high, not too low. A lower leg line tends to give you a little bit of a fuller leg, so you want to have something that's at least moderate or higher depending on your comfort level. This swimsuit is so glamorous, all she needs is a Martini and a floppy hat and she is ready for the beach. Next, we have Lilly wearing a classic cover-up. Many cruise lines require you to wear a cover-up when you are on the deck, so this would serve well and you could still see her bikini, so she feels a little bit sexy. She also can just throw this on when she is at the beach or the pool, to go get a cocktail and feel completely comfortable doing so. Next, we have Meyer and she is wearing a one-piece bathing suit that works for any body type as well as some great accessories. This is a classic chocolate one-piece swimsuit; it has a little bit of beading detail under the bust that helps bring your eye up to your face and accentuate her bust line. She also is carrying a great beach tow, it's a great size, you can fit your towel, you can fit your kid's toys in here, bottle of sun block. You take this with you to the beach or on a cruise and have plenty of room for anything you need. Inside this bag, she also has a fabulous pair of designer sunglasses. You can add these sunglasses to any bathing suit and the glamour factor is not stopped 110%. Next, we are going to look at how to care for your designer swimwear.
