May 18, 2020, 5:20 pm by MSP


Are you going to the pool this summer? That's a question you probably can't answer quite yet. Given the current conditions, most of us don't know. If the answer is "yes"....you must have a pool in your own backyard. If not, perhaps it's a kiddie pool or an oscillating sprinkler that will keep you cool this summer. Regardless, a nice swimsuit, one that fits you correctly and makes you look fab is in order. 

It is that time of year. Time to think swimwear.  What will you be wearing this season? Will you be needing a new swimsuit? Or, perhaps you are wondering if the one you have right now is good for your body type?  

Shop early while the selection of swimwear is strong, and the sales are just beginning. Take advantage of shopping early so you'll have lots of options and can choose your best swimsuit ever!

No travel worries-just fun in the sun this summer. This week's article is all about finding your best swimsuit based on your particular fit issues.

What SYSters Are Saying


Question about previous shoe article...

In your shoe article you said that wearing flats with skirts below the knee is dowdy, but in the spring preview you said that the midi could be worn with flats. I am confused. Is it the style or fullness that determines whether flats can be worn with a skirt below the knee? Debra


MSP HERE: Dear Debra,

Thank you for your question. This is a great question worthy of an explanation....so here it is!
Wearing flats with midi skirts can look dowdy. This is especially the case of the skirt is full-cut and the length is close mid-calf vs. a skirt at-the-knee.
The best way to wear flats with midi skirt is to choose a slim or A-line styled skirt. Also, avoid longer midi lengths that are mid-calf. Instead, opt for a length just below the knee. 
Love, Leslie MSP
