Mom Swimsuit Makeover
If buying a swimsuit puts you into a panic, you are not alone. We’ve enlisted help from celebrity stylist Jene Luciani (www.jeneluciani.com/) to solve all of your mom-dilemmas. To illustrate the figure challenges out there, Jene has done a celebrity round-up. Yes, it is true, even celebrities from Cindy Crawford to Kim Kardashian have insecurities about the way they look and scrutinize their bodies.
Problem: The “Un-Hipster” “I have learned to accept that I cannot just wear anything that is in fashion because…not everything, you know, fits!” – Sofia Vergara
Jene’s Tip: Conquering trends for your age can be difficult. I love this ruffled one-piece that still say sexy from Longitude. $69.99 at JCPenney.com.
Problem: The “Badonkadonk” – “I don’t even know how it happened. And there are all these rumours about whether it’s fake or if it’s real.” – Kim Kardashian
Jene’s Tip: There are ways to accentuate your assets, without baring too much. Stick with darker bottoms and higher-waisted cuts like Rosa Cha’s Plaid Bikini Bottoms. $178 at Shopbop.com.
Problem: The “Mom-Boob”: “You start out happy that you have no hips or boobs. All of a sudden you get them, and it feels sloppy. Then just when you start liking them, they start drooping.” – Cindy Crawford
Jene’s Tip: Fix drooping boobs with a swimsuit that lifts. Diane Von Furstenburg’s Floral Print Bikini Top with Built in Cups is great. $155 at saks.com.
Problem: The “Mod Bod” “I mean, I’ll show you that I have fat rolls.” – Jessica Simpson
Jene’s Tip: Many women are so ashmed of their bodies, they won’t even wear a swimsuit. There’s no need to miss out on the fun, find a sexy suit that doesn’t bare it all like Juicy’s new Swimdress. $190 at Bloomingdales.com.
Problem: The “Itty-Bitty-Titty-Committee” – “My so-called fabulous shape is due to airbrushing. I have small boobs and cellulite.” Sienna Miller
Jene’s Tip: Luckily for women like Sienna Miller, brands like Victoria’s Secret have come up with swimsuits that use the “push-up bra” technique. The Daisy Push-Up Bra is only $24 at Victoria’s Secret.
