I'll admit, I'm not too crazy about animal print pizazz, but can you really beat a $15 swimsuit? I don't think so. I like the striped one because it has a fun neckline and swimshorts. I LOVE swimshorts. The Lord and Taylor suit may be a little bit pricier, but the color and ruching are just sooo pretty. This swimsuit would be super flattering on anyone with a warm or olive skin tone.
No matter what swimsuit you decide, give it a dressing room test to see if it makes the cut. Lift your arms over your head. Bend over in front of the mirror. Do you need a little more coverage or support in the chest? Will the top fall off when you dive? (That's never fun, trust me....) Would it be better if you had swim shorts or a skirt instead? Make sure that whatever suit you get, you'll love it all summer long.
