Swimsuit season - Page 2

post #16 of 27
OK - swimsuit season is nearly upon us and I'm wondering what type of suits the members of the forum prefer and what you find to be the most flattering cut?
I've learned three rules about swimsuits: 1) Fitted waists are better than elastic. The elastic will bunch up and makes you look fatter than you are. 2) Thicker fabrics are better than thinner. The thicker the suit is, the less it will cling to you when you step out of the water. 3) Be careful with white. Remember those wet t-shirt contests in college... I'll just leave it at that.

Mrs. Cuffthis and I have been to Jamaica almost 20 times. As much as we love the beach in Negril, the only thing we can't tolerate is a big hairy guy wearing a marble sack. Topless beaches there are wonderful though.

Perfect balance between beach cool and classic.

Not too short or too long.

I usually have my tailor make me an 11oz fresco bathing suit with poplin begal stripe lining from Acorn that just peaks through.

A pair of Vilebrequin shorts. If you have the body, briefs are perfectly fine. Boardshorts are horrible.

Either a mankini or any swimming garment that accentuates my immense lunchbox.
