Posing in a bikini is a tough job, but someone has to do it. If it’s not J Lo, it might as well be you. But it’s not always as easy as it sounds, is it? I mean, we all know this: you choose a cute, flattering suit for the beach and you feel confident. You want to show it off, be it because your look is a new acquisition or it happens to match your beach towel. But when you’ve got everything set up, what the hell do you do?
We’re not all supermodels, so at the risk of being uncomfortable standing in front of the camera (same thing) we’ve come up with a few ideas for you. Whether you’re taking a selfie-style photo of your suit or having a photographer friend by your side, here are 15 solid ideas to stick up your sleeve. You can twist and turn as you like to bring out the details of your design to their best advantage, be it a waist belt, a tie sleeve or a ruffled neckline. And if you have accessories (like with a bucket hat) here are some ideas to draw attention to them too!
