Happy April! I don't know about you guys, but I'm feeling summer + sunshine + Lithe Escape. I'm ready to Run the beach! Spring has sprung, so it’s time to soak up the sunshine, get prepped to rock that Earned In Winter body, and spend time with friends and family. I miss the concept of having a true spring break in my life—taking a week long break from work to reset and refresh (and lay on the beach with Margarita in hand). So, this year I’m making an effort to give myself a personal spring break, in the form of a staycation here in Philly.
In honor of my much-anticipated break (and our upcoming Lithe Escape), I'm sharing some bikini tips with you. A fantastic bikini is always the first item I pack when I’m traveling somewhere warm. These Triangl bikinis are my swimwear picks for this season. I'm loving the supportive neoprene fabric, bright neon colors and fantastic fit.
If you choose to don a bikini, you should show off your Lithe-earned body in a suit that you feel comfortable and confident in. Any Jane can wear a bikini, but to feel confident in a bikini is another story. Here are some tips so that you can run the beach in:
Try EVERYTHING on. Suits look completely different on your body than on the hanger. Untie first--You need to adjust the straps to your body (not the girl’s who tried it on before you) or you won’t get the right look or fit.
Stringin' it? If you have a top with strings, tie it in the back first, then stretch the cups over your breasts before tying behind your neck. Got a bottom with strings? Tie it so it sits on your hip bone. Don't go too low or even worse, too high (hello David Lee Roth, California Girls).
Lithe it up! I highly recommend our Essential Workouts. Our Skinny Jeans & High Mini workouts are our blueprint and nothing will leave you balanced, looking better, and build your Lithe muscular structure with the quickness.
Eat Lithe whenever possible. Eating Lithe (eating clean) will not only get you into your bikini, but you'll really feel Lithe Inside. Keep (preferably raw) whole food snacks on hand at all times to keep energy levels up and hunger at bay.
When a suit fits, you don’t get any “overspill.” Remember that everything has a place—inside your suit. Watch out for super-skinny straps...They’re flattering on almost no one and they create back-bulge if you have even a little meat on your bones.
Lastly, check yourself before you wreck yourself-- In a three-way mirror, that is. You want to be sure you look great from all angles. Once you find a perfect fit, take note of the brand. Companies rarely change their fit year to year. It’ll make next year’s shopping that much better!
