4 Swimsuit Myths De-Bunked!, Honolulu, Hawaii

When it comes to bikinis, Born of the Water in Honolulu, Hawaii knows their suits! While swimwear shopping can sometimes be a struggle for most women, this local boutique takes the fuss out of your swimsuit hunt. As summer has been in full effect, they’ve been coming across a couple of interesting myths by their clients, which are simply untrue and are holding a lot of women back from finding the bikini of their dreams!

la pearl swim swimwearMyth: Never wear a white bathing suit.
Fact: Born of the Water carries Pualani Hawaii swim tops and swim bottoms that are double-lined and also have an added blue lining to protect from see-through mishaps. A white bikini top or white bikini bottom is an essential piece to any #bowbabes closet!
 
Myth: The more coverage, the better.
Fact: While many of our tourist clients prefer more coverage, sometimes extra fabric can emphasize the thing you want to hide. Boy shorts, for example, exaggerate certain areas around the hips and thighs, whereas a string bikini adjusts to lay flat on the skin. Also, bikini bottoms that are fuller coverage can sometimes end up in the “diaper butt,” so we recommend sizing down than your normal bikini bottom size. (Disclaimer: not all brands are made the same, so we do suggest taking a trip to the fitting room.)
 
Myth: Wearing black swimwear provides a slimming effect.
Fact: Although this is true, don’t feel limited to just black! Spice up your bathing suit wardrobe with navy, eggplant, chocolate, Elizabeth tran la pearl swim bikinicharcoal grey and forest green since these provide the same outcome! Vertical stripes and tiny prints can also make the body look leaner.
 
Myth: With swimwear, buy the same size as you do in clothing.
Fact: Although this can help to get a ball-park area of size, swimsuits need to fit a lot more snuggly than clothing. Knowing your panty size and bra size can help your associate find items that will be closest to your size, but it’s always best to try before you buy!
