This month was… saving the best for last, perhaps the most fun and relaxing boat day trip ever. Although I have visited Delos & Rhenia islands many times, yesterday was by far the best one. Now let’s talk fashion!
These days it’s so hard to find a swimsuit you can rely on.
But this is not the case with my Eres one-piece swimsuit. I could tell that this was perfect for me the moment I tried it on! I prefer once piece swimsuits because they are sexier while hiding more and they are ideal for my body type. I tried five or six of them before buying the specific one (ok and another one in salmon pink 🙂 ), and all of them felt like an instant, miraculous body lift thanks to their excellent quality of fabric & design. It also has a high-cut which makes my legs look even longer!
As fashion critic Hilary Alexander said, “Eres makes the best little black swimsuits in the world”, explaining the sophisticated appeal of the brand. “They are the Coco Chanel of swimsuits.”
I am a strong believer that you get what you pay for! I would probably have bought five or ten non-branded swimwear on the same price, but quality is better than quantity right?
Even if you have a flawless body (congratulations!), you probably wouldn’t say not to a little bit of help in the swimsuit area. So scroll down because I am giving you all the tips you need to choose the right swimsuit!
How to chose the right swimsuit:
Your body shape determines which swimsuit will look best on you. So selecting the right cut is the most important thing when choosing swimsuits. For example, I prefer once-piece swimsuits because they compliment my waist area. A high waist 40’s style can also make a wide waist look smaller.
Choose the right store
I prefer shopping swimsuits from stores that specialize in swimsuits, so do the necessary research to find which one will work for you, and don’t be shy asking for advise from the salespeople. Online shopping is another option but it works only if you are sure about the swimsuit type that fits you the best or if you just need a few extras of a swimsuit you already have.
The right color can make or break a beach look, so make sure to try a great variety of colors to see which ones work best with your skin tone.
Look yourself in the mirror from the back
The backside view counts as much as the front especially when it comes to swimwear.
Mix & match
Don’t be afraid to buy swimsuit separates that don’t match perfectly. If for example you want to add volume in your bust but hide some at the hips area, you can choose a ruffled top and a solid monochrome bottom of shirred or ruched fabric.
Select the suitable swimsuit for its primary use
You might want to chose a specific swimsuit if you are a surfer, a lifeguard, a professional swimmer etc. So keep that in mind.
Ruffles are not only so on trend right now, but they can help you to add some volume to your bust or hips (check out this lovely pink ruffled bottom on my instagram). Choose solid colors in order to hide something you don’t like.
So what’s your favorite swimsuit type? Any favourite brands? And do you have any extra tips on how to chose the right swimsuit? Please feel free to let me know in the comments.
PS: I need to get rid of this tattoo asap haha!
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week! 🙂

Ah Stella, you and Anestis did it again!
Love the one piece bikini of course.
Thank you so much Tatjana 🙂
Great bathing suit discovery tips hun. I have always preferred the one-piece suit over bikins. Even before I had my babies. So I’m crushing on this one you’ve chosen to showcase. Beautiful
Have a great day
Thank you so much, I am very glad you like it! I am into on-piece suits too and Eres is by far the best one I have ever tried! 😀
Can’t go wrong with a black one-piece!!!
Come check out the 3rd installment of my collab with Los Angeles-based brand TOBI – I’m so sure you’ll love it!

Thank you Stella 😀
Beautiful photographs Stella, you really are beautiful 🙂 Your tips are very helpful indeed, and really useful to have to hand when it comes to choosing the perfect swimwear.
The swimwear you’ve opted for here suits you perfectly, very chic indeed.
For me I’m slight, so I tend to opt for Triangle shaped swimwear to add some shape 🙂 Last year I really went to town with swimwear on SheHearts and just loved playing around with shapes and also colour too.
Thanks for sharing your lovely post with us all 🙂
Thank you so much Laura, I am really glad you like it! Have a wonderful day! <3
Aaw I love these tips. Luckily I read this post before I was buying my swim suits for summer holidays 🙂 I planned to do this on Saturday!
I love these pictures and the positive beach vibes you spread <3

Thank you Anjelique, I think you need to visit one day soon! 🙂 Have great day! xx
These photos are incredible!!
You look great my dear!?
Love your swimsuit and also that kind of swimwear,but I rather prefer two piece swimsuit only because I want to get tan equally.??
Thank you Maja, I am very glad you like it! Photos are thanks to my love (aren’t we so lucky?) 🙂
The tan is a thing with one piece swimsuits, you are so right! Thankfully we have many nudist beaches here in Mykonos so I guess it would be easy to correct an uneven suntan haha! Plus I don’t have time to go to the beach more than 2-3 times per month, (quite a torture when living in Mykonos right?), so a one piece, two piece or a burqini wouldn’t make any difference! 😀 Have a great day and wish you a wonderful time in Dubai my friend! <3
Stunning photos and you look amazing in that Eres swimsuit! I think I need that!
Thank you Yvonne! Trust me you will love it, definitely worths the investment!
Beautiful photographs Stella, you look so beautiful in that swimsuit.

Excellent tips! Your bathing suit is lovely, I especially love the detail in the back, very chic. These photos are absolutely gorgeous, such a beautiful backdrop.
Have a wonderful week!
Thank you so much Keisha, I hope you are having a great week so far! xx
**wolf whistles** oh my gosh could you be anymore gorgeous! Your body is incredible and this swimsuit fits you perfectly- quality is totally worth the price! These photos are incredible, the contrast of the very blue sea against the houses is so dreamy. I tend to opt for separates as I find that they fit my body type better but maybe I should invest in some ruffles?
Thank you my friend! I need to invest in some ruffles too, especially for the top haha 🙂 By the way, how amazing are your looks from MBAFW? And love your shorter and wavy hair style, looks amazing on you! Have a great day and thank you for stopping by! Kisses xx
Oh my…the photos are so beautiful!
You look so lovely as well 😀

Thank you Elisa, I am so happy to have inspired you! 😀
You have perfect body to wear swimsuit.. thanks for amazing tips.
I’m so in love with all the photos! The views are really breathtaking!
When it comes to swimwear I never know what to go for. I’m still looking for the perfekt bikini for this summer but I am also cosindering buying a swimsuit because they just look so interesting I think! They are not the best for tanning but they just look so nice with shorts or a skirt on and if it’s not too sunny they are great!
Thank you for pointing this out Olivia, indeed one piece swimsuits are not the best option for an even tan. I do choose them cause I go rarely to the beach and when I do I do not stay long under the sun, but if you are looking for an even and tropical suntan then a bikini is the best option! xx
This post is amazing, so fresh and joyous. And you darling look so stunning. This year I also chose a one piece swimsuit!!!
Thank you my dearest, I am very glad you like it! Looking forward to your new website 😀 Kisses!
Amazing tips Stella. indeed body type is most important factor to choose swimsuit.
