BIC Soleli® Shave & Trim + My H&M swimwear suggestions for your body type

I know I say this in every post but summer is coming! Vacation, pool parties & BBQs. 
You know that time for smooth legs and bikini area.

A recent survey of female adults by BIC® developing premium disposable shavers that meet the needs of women – reveals that nearly 50% of Canadian women hate bathing suit shopping (only 7% said they loved bathing suit shopping).*
I am in that 50% that hate it! 

To help women transition into the new season AND into bathing suits with confidence,  BIC® Soleli® has come out with a new product called the Shave and Trim. It's a 2-n-1 disposable shaver that allows women to groom all body parts, including the most sensitive spots, with one product.  

Bic has also partnered with Allison Ethier, Canadian Fitness Champion, Nutrition Consultant and Model to encourage all Canadian women to celebrate self-confidence and set their bathing suit

I decided to pair Allison's suggestions with some swimwear from my favourite retail store: H&M!

“Straight with very few curves, this body type is small all over and needs a swimsuit to add volume and curves to the waist, butt and hips. Great one piece options include cut-out sides, strapless with ruching at the top and moulded cups or inserts for added lift. For bikinis, look for a halter or V-shaped top and a bottom with fun side ties to add volume to the hips.”

My pick ($34.95):
Size 4 to 14
Fully lined, bandeau style swimsuit with an open back, a zip with a tooth-shaped pendant at the front, support panels, and a silicone trim at the top.

“Pear shape body types have an overall smaller upper body and are larger on the bottom. To add balance and create a more symmetrical shape, ‘pin-up girl’ style onepiece swimsuits are a fantastic option; look for something with a plunging neckline or ruffles around the top to draw the eye upward. For two-piece swimsuits, a skirt-style bottom works well with a top of the same colour. Go for a darker shade for a slimming effect!”

My Pick ($14.95)
Sizes 4 to 14
Fully lined bikini bottoms with gathers at the sides.

“Curvy/hourglass shaped women are generally looking for support and coverage in a bathing suit. Try to avoid one-piece suits altogether as this tends to create a boxy look. Go for a top that has seaming under the bust; V-shape, halter or one-shoulder are all great options for added support. Darker bottoms in a solid colour or small pattern work to balance out your figure".

My Pick ($29.95)
Size 4 to 14
Lined, padded bikini top with beaded embroidery at the front, ties at the neck with beads on the ends, and a metal fastener at the back. Support panels at the sides and a silicone trim at the top.

“For women with an athletic shape, look for a swimsuit that has more feminine cuts and details to balance out a less curvy figure. Anything with ruching, detail, and tapered bottoms in the back will give a curvier appearance.”

My Pick ($19.95)
Size 4 to 14
Lined triangle bikini top with moulded cups with extra padding, gathers at the front, and wide ties at the neck and back.

“Apple shaped women tend to hold weight in the mid-section, with thinner arms and legs. To add definition to the waist, a one-piece swimsuit with a cute belt is a great option. Also try colour blocking on the sides, which creates the look of a more defined waist. For two-piece suits, try a halter or deep V shape to bring the eye upward, with an empire bottom to accentuate the waistline.”

My pick ($34.95):
Sizes 4 to 14
Fully lined bandeau-style swimsuit with metal decorations, detachable ties at the neck and a silicone trim around the top.
