A Suit for Every Body
by Liz Jones
Is it just me, or do department stores replace their regular mirrors with the stretchy funhouse variety every time swimsuit season rolls around?

I'm a reluctant shopper in general and swimsuit shopping is hands down my least favorite way to spend an afternoon. Either a bikini top fits perfectly and the bottom looks like a piece of dental floss, or the bottom's great and the top has enough room left over for a couple softballs.

You can imagine my delight when I discovered there are swimsuit designers who understand that women come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Designers like Malia Mills, for example.

Malia says her company's mission is to "inspire women to look in the mirror and see what is right instead of wrong."

A few Oxygen women recently got together with Malia to show off her swimsuit collection and support the company's efforts to celebrate beauty as diversity. Check out this clip from their modeling debut:
Finding the Right Suit
While it's less about the right suit than about the right attitude, it is easier to feel confident, comfortable and sexy in a suit that enhances your best curves.

J. Crew's swimsuit finder tool is a fun and helpful way to find a suit that best fits your form. You can custom fit any style to your body by choosing to maximize or minimize certain aspects of the suit. Even if you don't go with one of their suits, the tool offers some pretty good guidelines about how to find the best style for your figure.

For more tips on how to find the ideal swimsuit, we asked a few of the Oxygen women to talk about their experience as models for Malia Mills. You can read their advice on the following pages.
