Spring Break Swimsuit Guide: The Best Suits for Every Shape (OF COURSE there are pictures)
Fox News ^ | March 3, 2009 | Sabrina Newman

Posted on 03/03/2009 10:20:01 PM PST by Stoat

Spring break is coming up, which means it's time to invest in a sexy new swimsuit.

If you’re Jessica Alba, you can get away with just about anything. But if you’re not, we’ve got some great advice to make this year the best spring break beach experience ever.

Yes, going to the gym and toning up is important because swimsuits, by virtue of their form and function, tend to leave little to the imagination.

More important, however, is learning which swimsuits work best for your body type. Cuts, shapes, fabrics, prints can have a major impact on how your beach-bod looks, so it's important to be well informed before you buy so you get it right! No matter what your problem area, there's a style that's perfect for you.

Knowing the tremendous dedication that many FReepers have to fashion and in assuring that young ladies are properly attired in ways that do not restrict their movements in any way, additional swimwear recommendations from readers (and accompanying photos) are encouraged.  I'm sure that we can all agree that it would be absolutely dreadful for our young American ladies to go on their Spring Break without appropriate apparel for the occasion.

Astute, fashion-conscious and eclectic readers may also find these recent, essential hard-news FR threads to be of interest:

“Let’s get it on.[off]”

Reminds me of my father-in-law (RIP). Out shopping he would always say to anyone that would listen “Oh look. Women’s clothing half-off! Let’s go in there!”

I didn't like any of those suits.

And those models are anorexic - seriously, how can they sell anorexic fashions to a nation of people who are so obese they all have guts hanging over their belts?

Have you been on a college campus lately?

The coeds all look like John Candy.

Seriously, dude - if you haven't driven around a high school or college campus lately, then you'd be shocked at how obese the teenaged/twentyish girls are nowadays.

It's particularly disgusting when they wear those tight little bare midriff shirts, and in front they have that stomach paunch which hangs over their belts, and from behind, when they bend over, you can see the tramp stamp just above their cracks.

Gag me.

You need to upgrade the quality of the college campuses you visit. I suggest you check out either the University of Georgia or the University of Florida, for starters.

If you’re Jessica Alba, you can get away with just about anything.

I believe that it's Free Republic tradition, as well as being simply an example of good manners, that when someone's name is mentioned that a photo be provided in order that everyone be fully familiar with who it is that's being referred to.

If these photos are insufficiently clear for the purpose of proper identification or swimsuit evaluation I have no doubt that many here will rise to the opportunity of providing more.

My daughter goes to Lipscomb. She is thinnish. 5’3” 105 pounds

Her sorority sisters are overweight....at least 75% of them.

I just went thru Ole Miss this weekend and actually ate at Newks (southern Deli chain) and walked around campus (where I went)). The girls are heavier...not Wal Mart heavy but I’s say 10-15% thicker.

Myself and DC2000 went there in the 70s and the women were nearly all slender and fit and many were gorgeous. They are still pretty but just fatter.

And there is a lot of pressure there to look good. didn’t get the chance to review but I’d bet most Tri-Delts, KDs and Chi Omegas at Ole Miss are still fairly proportional...and often blonde...lol

I bet SMU in Dallas or University of Alabama, the schools most resembling Ole Miss demographics are similar today too.

Given that Free Republic is not a Socialist site that pretends to enforce jackbooted 'equality' in every thread, there will naturally be some threads which appeal more to some than others.  The Fox News article which this thread is derived from is entirely and exclusively pertaining to ladies' swimsuits.  It's an article devoted to assisting ladies in selecting the proper suit for their body type, and FReeper men, being legendary for their kindness, benevolence and fashion sense to name but a few virtues, are of course delighted to assist in this worthy cause.  Nowhere in the article are men's suits addressed.  Therefore, it's to be expected that the responding posts in this thread are also addressing the essential topic of ladies' swimsuits.

That being said, Free Republic, being an equal-opportunity Capitalist-oriented site, offers you an equal opportunity to create your own thread pertaining to men's swimsuits if you so desire.

Just Asking

Just answering  :-)

I'm torn between thinking that that's more information than I needed to know, but also thinking that that's a very interesting observation.
