So, so, so sorry for my lack of postings lately.....I went out of town, found out I am PREGNANT, and things have just gotten crazy from there!  SO!  Here I am, back to the foxin world of style and am happy to serve :)

This week's topic?  Not hair color?  Not nail polish?  Nope!  It's swimwear!  If you started with me on my challenge, I hope you are still forging ahead (reports are excellent per the facebook page!)  If not, you still have time to hop on board....9 weeks til summer!  It's just about time to start looking for great poolside or beach wear that's perfect for your unique and foxy shape!

Some basic guidelines for swimwear----

A little lacking in the bust area?  No worries!  Stay away from triangle cut tops and one pieces without some padding.  Add some ruffle or pleating to your top, and you'll see an instantaneous boost to your bust!

Need a bit o' belly control?  It's best to stay away from shiney fabrics and even the can ride up when wet or just get too clingy.  Never fun.  Stick with a more matte fabric in a sassy one piece....a low cut top or high cut leg can make mouths drop in the most wonderous of ways.

Need to tame the top region?  Stay clear of triangle tops if you are a D-cup or above.....definitely not enough support for your girls.....find a flattering halter top suit or something with a fabulous underwire.  Nothing says saggy like.....saggy.  Lift and support are where it's at!

Have some foxy curves?  You don't have to say no to a two piece--just pick one that hugs in all the right places and that just fits GREAT!  Just beware of anything with strings....leave all that mess to Borat. You can also find uber flattering one pieces that will make you strut with no skirt necessary (think wrap around waist)!

And the best accessory for any suit......a good shimmery glow.  BUT you don't have to lay out in the harsh sun or lie in a tanning bed for weeks to get it!  Jergens makes a great little product that's an everyday moisturizer.  You can pick how dark you want to go, and gradually it will take you there.  Just know, though, that most self tanners can rub off on your sheets as you sleep.  So, best to apply them in the morning after your shower to give you all day to let it soak on in.  You'll have fabulously moisturized skin in no time flat, as well as having gotten rid of your winter white!

My apologies for not being able to steal images off the internet to give you the perfect picture of what looks hot (ha!)......but you can go to here and find some great swimsuits for very reasonable prices.  Just follow your guidelines for your specific shape, and you will be one happy sun goddess!

So, remember still have a whopping 9 weeks til summer!  If you are not where you want to be, there's still time!  Start looking for that perfect suit and you'll be ready to be Stylin like a Fox all summer long!
