The Perfect Fit

Most one-piece swimsuits are too short for my torso. How can I find one that fits?

Get out your measuring tape and follow this three-point plan from Stacy Finnemore, the women's swimwear corporate merchant for L.L.Bean. First, measure the fullest point of your bust, then the widest part of your hips and, finally, from the highest point of your shoulder down to the top of your thigh. Choose a suit based on these numbers, not your dress size. If you're shopping online, you'll find these measurements listed on the website. In a store, measure swimsuits from top to bottom, adding about half an inch to account for stretch, before you try them on. If they come up short, keep looking.

I have the opposite problem... I'm under 5 feet and most suits are too long for me! I've looked online for "petite" suits with little success - and wouldn't want to order them without trying them on anyway...

Yes, these suits are expensive. Check out Land's End and their sales. You can get a great suit for less than $100. And they last. I am a lap swimmer and would never pay these prices for a suit. Land's End suits look good and are flattering . Check them out.
