When summertime comes around and it is time to invest in the perfect swimwear, it is best to get one that would make you feel gorgeous and carry through for years to come. Whether you are heading off to the sandy beaches or simply lounging by the pool, a little discernment goes a long way in finding that perfect piece to complement your body and personality.
Here are some tips to always keep in mind when shopping for swimwear online.
Know what you are looking for.
Ideally, you should have an idea of the type of swimwear you are looking for. You may have perused the pages of your favourite fashion publications for the latest trends - from materials, prints, colours to cuts or just that perfect classic piece that never goes out of style - a little research goes a long way. When in doubt, the next step helps…
Know your proportions and your size.
Instead of focusing too much on what you wish to hide, understand your body and flaunt your best features. There are many guides (including ours) that you can refer to online when you are unsure of your body’s form. If it is your first time purchasing swimwear, and you have locked your eyes on your ideal piece of swimwear online, take your measurements in the comfort of your own home using a measuring tape. Stand in front of a mirror and take note of the measurements of the circumferences of your bust, waist and hips, and refer to KBLU’s easy size chart to determine your exact size. For the risk averse, you may always make an appointment with us and pay a visit to the K.BLU Swim Showroom where we will address your every concern.
Pick a good brand.
Swimwear with a luxurious feel will not only make you look and feel beautiful, it is crafted with the ability to see you through more pool visits and exotic vacations. Immaculate construction and good fabric are two crucial identifying factors of high-quality swimwear. K.BLU’s pieces are lovingly made from Italian fabrics that are softer and lighter, ensuring a fit and drape that is graceful, flattering and luxe to the touch.
