Memorial Day is right around the corner and you know what that means: Summer! Cook outs, Graduation Parties, summer weddings, and ALL OF THE SUMMER POOLS OPENING!

We will be having a sale at Once ’n Again. But, even before Memorial Day gets here, you’ll want to stop by to pick up one of the most essential summer items: your swim suit!

Believe me I know that finding the right swim suit can be stressful; we don’t all look good in those tiny two-pieces. But there are swim suit styles for every body type. Here’s a quick run-down on finding your perfect suit.

  • Curvy Hips: Want to hide any sort of love handles or to tone down the hips? Look for high waisted swim suit bottoms. These will sit up above any problem areas, the elastic in the suit will help to slim the hips, and they are trendy to boot!
  • Full Thighs: Not comfortable in the teeny-tiny bikini bottoms because no matter how many miles you run those thighs just won’t tone down? We feel ya. And there is a suit perfect for you! Look for swim bottoms that can convert into a skirt style. This is totally cute and offers you enough coverage to feel comfortable!
  • Tummy a problem area? Try a tankini! These are better than a one piece because they are so much more flattering! Most tankinis have a loose paneling that goes from chest to hips, so you won’t have to worry about clinging fabric and can take on the pool openings with confidence!  High waisted bottoms also hide tummy issues.
  • Athletic builds or smaller chest: You can pull off most all suit styles, so go with what you feel the best in. To create the illusion of curves look for ruffled tops or one pieces with rushing on the sides!
  • More than a D Cup:  Find a suit that has support inside.  Tankinis or bikinis with a wide tie at the neck and wide band around the back are also helpful.

The key is to try on different styles and see what flatters your shape the most! There is absolutely no reason to be uncomfortable or self-conscious in your suit…Summer is too short for that! Come find your perfect swim suit at our Pontiac and Fairbury Once ’n Again locations!

And come on in again next Monday, Memorial Day to save 20% off of your purchase. We would love to celebrate the start of summer with you, as well as help you find perfect outfits for all your summer needs! We’ll be open 10am – 7pm!
