Swimsuits are a big part of summer and they're the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the sun. It may sound scary to think that you can take advantage of this season and express yourself when soaking up the sun, but it can be done without all the stress if you shop wisely.

Reveal your personal style in a bathing suit and be open to buying one online. I have found it’s the best way to shop for swimsuits because it avoids any self loathing that otherwise happens after you try on the second one. Embrace your body for all it's worth and tap into your confidence when wearing your swimsuit. Knowing your body is important, and coming to terms with it will make you look and feel your best. As always, when you feel great you exude an attractive aura that can’t help but be noticed.

My first ever-so-charming swimsuit feature is suitable for a smaller chest and curves that would make a coca-cola bottle jealous. The Juicy Couture ruffle red two-piece is hot! I love the top part because it has a ruched bust. The ruched bust is adorable and feminine, but not quite enough to cover and support a big-breasted gal who may want to opt for more coverage. Although this top doesn’t leave much to the imagination, the bottom does the opposite by covering the booty with sass and style with a skirt-like ruffle bottom. Catch some rays in this bikini and never worry about awkward tan lines around your neck.

I can speak for larger breasted girls and say I need to have my girls lifted to an upright position in order to feel comfortable laying around in almost nothing. So, I prefer halter bikinis with a wire or a thicker band underneath. I’m head over heels for this simple white (also comes in black) Banded Halter Bikini from Venus. This elegant, flattering diva suit has nice black embellishments that compliment the thick bands on both the top and bottom of the suit and add glamour without going over the top. In addition to those lovely perks, this swimsuit is versatile enough to mix 'n' match.

Looking for a one-piece? Then check out this sophisticated one from Venus called the “Sun Goddess.” I mean, it’s just that: a bathing suit a sun goddess would wear to keep it classy and jaw-dropping at the same time. I love the elegant silhouette with the enhancer triangle cups, which add sexy shape and support to the front. The back takes over by being soft, but super daring with a crisscross tie for the ultimate in stunning. Something about this one-piece is extraordinarily charming and it makes me want to order it pronto. They definitely didn’t get stuck when designing this suit. The way the breasts are accented and the way the back is wrapped up shows how spicy this combination is, creating an exquisite spicy style that fits well in the whole equation. Bottom line, it’s sexy-- I’m in.
