Getting married is a magical time for any couple. And for most couples, the great times continue afterward throughout the honeymoon. A honeymoon presents an opportunity for couples to relax and unwind, which is often necessary after months of stress related to planning a wedding.

While there is no overshadowing the big day, most couples find that the honeymoon is where they can truly enjoy themselves and create memories that will last for the rest of their lives. For women who may have spent weeks or months getting into shape for their wedding day, the honeymoon is also a perfect opportunity to show off that killer body that they have worked so hard to achieve. Get it girl. 

And since many honeymoons are located in tropical locations or have access to a lake, pool, or just some sun in the backyard, it’s crucial that you find the perfect swimsuit (or swimsuits).

Consider your Destination

There is no dictating the right place for your honeymoon, and depending upon the traits of the couple, you can choose any type of honeymoon you want– whether it be a secluded mountain cabin on a lake or the beaches of Bora Bora. But no matter what your dream honeymoon may be, you can find a suit that meets the needs of the location. If you are secluded, you may opt for something that is comfortable, whereas if you are on a crowded beach, you might want a sophisticated look. 

But no matter where your destination might be, you can be sure tofind a swimsuit that is suitable for the adventures you will be going on as a couple. If you are going somewhere you have never been before, you can always do a little research on Pinterest to see what the local style is to help you make your final selection.

Consider your Body Type

Taking your body type into consideration is always a good idea when shopping for swimwear. And for many women, they are in the best shape of their life during their honeymoon, so you will want to select a suit that flatters your natural assets. The following overview contains some general ideas of what looks best for certain body types.

  • Pear Shape:Women with a pear shape may want to look for either aone-piece suit or abikini that accentuates the bust and draws attention upwards. This look balances out the body and creates a wonderful look for any setting.
  • Large Bust: If you have a larger bust, you may want to consider a halter top or other suit that offers ample support. Wide straps can also increase comfort.
  • Athletic Build:Sports-styles often accentuate an athletic build.Bandeaus, strapless bikinis, andmid-rise bikini bottoms are all great choices. If you have toned abs, you may also want to consider a suit with cutouts or a deep neckline to accentuate the area.
  • Hourglass Figure: Women with an hourglass figure naturally look great in nearly all one-piece suits and monokinis.

No matter what body shape you have, you can find a suit that will make you look great and reflect your bridal style. It’s just a matter of knowing what you are looking for in your swimwear.

Enhance your Marital Glow

 Many women are glowing on their honeymoon. This is one of the happiest times of their life. And you can use it to your advantage by selecting a suit that enhances your natural newlywed glow. Some women do this by selecting a suit that mirrors the features of their wedding gown, while others look for something whimsical and romantic – which often mirrors your mood throughout your honeymoon. Some women are even more overt and select swimwear or accessories that say, ‘Just Married.’ Also, feel free to stray away from the white swimsuits! Brides now-a-days want a standout style that they feel good in and can transition from beach to honeymoon activity easily. 

Let’s not forget a spray tan. What better way to sport that marital glow than actually kissing your skin with a gorgeous spray tan?

The bottom line is that there is no right or wrong way to enhance your glow – it’s all about how you choose to celebrate your newly-wedded bliss. Whether you ultimately select a triangle-top or shoulder bikini, a one-piece, a bandeau, or any other type of bathing suit, you can find the right bridal swimwear by shopping around. Be sure that you take into account the destination of your honeymoon, consider the unique features of your body, and reflect the right mood you want to create for your honeymoon. This process can help you to be sure you select the ideal swimwear for a perfect honeymoon – and one that lives on in your memory for the rest of your life!
