Gretta's Got It: Swimwear
If your swimsuit has you signaling for an SOS, it's time for a new one! Seven's Gretta Monahan has the newest looks in swimwear guaranteed to have looking like a bathing beauty and Gretta's Got It!
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "Looking great at the beach is big business, so we're going to head over to Everything but Water and check out the latest summer trends."
Rosemary Espinosa, Everything But Water: "This is a mono-kini. It's by a company named Sevage, and they are just extremely known for their sexiness and their embellishments and their bright colors."
Gretta Monahan: "You need to have a nice long torso to pull that off, so, petites like me, stick with a two piece."
Rosemary Espinosa: "Beading is very, very in and in all different colors."
Gretta Monahan: "Keep in mind fit is everything, and, in swim wear, it's no different."
Rosemary Espinosa: "This is a Betsy Johnson, this is called Beauty, and this is one of the original designs she came out with when she got inspired by lingerie."
Girls, there's some basic rules to follow when choosing a top.
The bandeau is for the small busted lady who's doing nothing but hanging by the pool.
Triangle tops are great, but you can't be bigger than a B cup. Halter style bra tops, these are universal. Either do it with pads or not. It's always sexy on the beach.
Rosemary Espinosa: "Also one of the trends in the suits now is to make your cup wider or make your cup narrower, depending on what kind of tan line you want."
Tankinis, these are for the girl on the go. These will not slow you down on the sand.
From Brazilian to brief bottoms, you just have to match the right fit to your bottom.
Boy shorts are great if you're long, lean and athletic.
Side tie bottoms are great because they are adjustable.
Gretta Monahan: "Metallics on the beach are a style staple, now they come bi-color. It gives a totally different look to the suit."
If you're looking for max coverage and comfort, go for the classic one-piece, but don't do it frumpy. There are so many sexy ones to choose from.
Gretta Monahan: "This is going to help someone who wants to cover up some things, but it's going to do it in a youthful, colorful, young manner."
With all the embellishments and special treatments on our bathing suits, cleaning is key. You've got to hand wash to get out the suntan lotion, with salt and chlorine.
Gretta Monahan: "Cover-ups are where it's at. Go long and lean like mine, or do a little sexy strapless. No matter, you get double duty. They go from the beach to the street. I'm Gretta for "Gretta's Got It!"
