After the attendees received their perfect fitting swimsuit, Kendall Farr, fashion stylist, top-selling author and Glamour Glambassador offered expert advice ranging from how to accessorize to how to experiment with the latest swim trends. According to Kendall, it's simple to find the perfect swimsuit for each and everyone's specific body type. If you're a plus size or curvy body type, the Slender Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit is a good choice because it offers targeted control in the middle area, and minimizes and creates curves for those with a straight waistline. Kendall also likes the Slender Ruffle Swimsuit, because it smooths curves, minimizes the tummy area, and draws the eyes up and down, which a fantastic way to minimize and favor an hourglass shape. Kendall's favorite swimsuit in the architecture group and the most unique one piece at the event, is the One Shoulder One Piece Swimsuit! This swimsuit's one shoulder detail offers targeted control through the stomach area that pulls the tummy in. Per Kendall, the horizontal drape across the middle of this one shoulder swimsuit "fakes" the look of a more hourglass silhouette, and smooths out the tummy area.
