Beware Too Many Frills or Fuss
I'm always cautious of advising people to avoid things entirely, because quite honestly, if you love it, you should wear it. But I have found, much to my disappointment, that one thing I do need to watch is too much fuss on a bikini. I love frilled briefs and feminine details, but if I'm not careful, because of my tummy and thighs, I can run the risk of looking like I'm dressed as a toddler in anything too girlie and fussy. A more streamlined shape is often a lot better on me, and may well be on you too. Try things on and see; you may love how you look in a whimsical ruffled bikini (if so, I'm jealous).
