Old Navy Swimwear 2012 - Splash In Style

Summer is almost upon us. Are you ready for some fun in the water? Whether you take a dip in the ocean, swim laps in the pool or simply lie on a sandy beach soaking the summer sun - a stylish swim suit is a summer wardrobe essential. Finding a great swimsuit that looks good, flatters your body and doesn't leave you bankrupt can be a little challenging. Well, you can breath easy for Old Navy have got a great line up of swimwear for the whole family! You can find swimwear for every body type at Old Navy. Here are Style Delights tips for buying a swimsuit that really suits your body!

For Flattening The Tummy
Aren't we all looking for a flat tummy! Tummy control panels at the front instantly flattens and smooths out the belly area for a flattering shape. Ruched or shirred swimsuits also smooth out the belly area. Old Navy got the swimsuits with built-in supportive Control Max liner that keeps you in while you're lying out.

For Full Coverage 
Two piece swimsuits with tankini top and boy shorts also work great if you want more coverage. To lounge around the pool or on the beach, a sheer maxi or a tunic covers up well and still looks sexy and stylish.

For Gaining A Fuller Chest
Bikini tops with frills or fringes or metallic embellishment give the illusion of a fuller chest. Old Navy have bikini tops with removable foam padding inserts that  give the illusion of a bustier chest. Push up bikini/tankini tops are also great to gain cleavage.

For Hour Glass Figure
For women blessed with (or who work really hard for) an hour glass figure (jealous sigh!), you can rock these string bikinis from Old Navy!

For Pear Shaped Figure
For women with pear shaped bodies, shopping for swimwear can be a challenge. If you have a pear shape body, buy tops and bottom separately. You may be a small in the top, but you may need a medium or large size for bottoms. Look for high thigh-cut bottom to elongate the legs and details and patterns that focus on waist/top to balance out the wide bottom. A bright top and dark bottom combination also draws attention to the top. Avoid a lot of ruffles/embellishment on the bottom.

Swimwear For Little Girls
Here are some of my favorite Old Navy swimwear picks for the little ones! Can't wait for the 'mommy and me' fun in the pool with my little mermaid!

Thank you again to Old Navy for sponsoring my post. I was compensated for this post as a member of Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all my own.

  1. I have an hourglass figure, but you shouldn't be jealous at all :') I have giant shoulders, so I can't wear bandeau's, which I actually like the most. But that little girl's wear is soooo cute!

    This really is a great post dear!
