Regardless of your body type, shape and size, the struggle to find a figure-flattering and truly beautiful swimwear that doesn’t dig into your skin can be a big challenge. Finding a swimsuit that isn’t too loose or too tight (because a saggy swimsuit is almost worse than the one that digs) is no easy feat.
Whether we’re talking about a bikini, a sexy one-piece or a tankini, even if your favorite swimsuit fits ~ almost ~ spot on, that doesn’t mean it won’t cut your skin in some places and drop in others. Size up or down is certainly an option, but it’s not stupid.
Fortunately, there are some factors besides size consideration that can help you find the best anti-digging swimwear for your body shape that won’t put you at risk for clothing errors — and it won’t stop you from performing. Like seamless underwear and bras, the seamless and anti-elastic swimsuit is also a thing that extends (in all directions) and helps the garment stick to your body like a second skin.
Another great anti-dig alternative is the ruffled and smoked fabric that gives more stretch and movement and tends to be elastic-free – which is often the culprit.
