Let’s get some real posing lessons
PICK A GREAT SWIMSUIT
Your body shape has nothing to do with wearing a bikini. It does not matter if you have a great body or not. But what matters is how you carry the bikini; how much are you comfortable in wearing the bikini and most important what type of bikini you choose. There is a bikini for every body shape, you just need to choose the right one. See to it that you do not pick the ill-fitting briefs, too-tight tops, and saggy, worn-out one. Make sure that the bikini you have selected is perfect for your body shape and suits your style.
Let your swimsuit speak for your personality, go for something you love and minimize the presence of something you don’t. Before buying a bikini make sure you ask yourself few questions: Do you love it? Does it suit your personality? Do you feel like the hottest woman on the beach when you wear it? If yes, that is your kind of bikini. And if you are still confused, go shopping with someone whose opinions you trust.
EMBRACE YOU S CURVE
The ladies who are pro in posing may know what S curve is. But, some of you might wonder what is S Curve? Well, ‘S Curves’ is flattering, feminine shape that happens when you shift your weight onto one hip and tilt your shoulder down a little, towards the extended hip. If you have seen any Victoria Secret Models, you would know what I mean, as they often pose like this.
This is the classiest way to enhance your curve in a bikini and look lean at the same time. But here is a little tip: Do not put all your body weight on the hip when your closest to the camera, this will make you look shorter than you actually are.
POP UP ON YOUR TOES
Whenever you pose in a bikini, try to stand on your tiptoes, this will make your legs appear stronger, longer, and leaner. Also, this will help you look taller than you actually are, which will make your picture more flattering.
TUCK YOUR TUMMY IN
Right when your photographer is ready to click your picture, engage your stomach to instantly improve your posture. This will make you look leaner and taller, also helps your body to look toned. The best part is that you will get a mini-workout while you’re at it!
You cannot just stand straight and pose on the beach or pool deck all day and click pictures. Get into some action; run around, play with your hairs, involve your friends, jump, splash water, etc. This will make you more comfortable and indirectly will leave you with great fun pictures.
It is never bad to test the light by clicking few trial picture, as light plays an important role in your pictures. You should avoid overhead sunlight, as it creates some weird shadows over your body. What you can do is stand in the shade, wait for a low and soft light like the light during sunrise and sunset and get a picture click. Natural lights work best for all kind of photography.
Whenever you are posing for a picture wearing a bikini, try to pose with your legs together. You can do this just by placing your one leg in front of the other leg. This will give you a sexy hourglass figure and makes your leg appear longer.
If you are someone who is still not comfortable wearing a bikini and still want to get a picture in one, there is one solution to it: accessories. Use as much as accessories as you want like a statement necklace, a bold hat, or a pair of fabulous sunglasses. This will take the emphasis off your body. This does not mean that a comfortable lady cannot use accessories. If you want to use accessories, you can, there is no harm in it.
Whenever shooting in a bikini, try more standing poses than sitting poses. As sitting pose will showcase your bloating stomach and we do not want that to be seen in the pictures. Also, sitting poses turn into an uncomfortable looking picture. Standing and sleeping poses make you look tall and toned. Now, the ladies with well-toned body might wonder why can’t we sit? The reason is that sitting on a chair would still pancake out your thighs like you wouldn’t believe.
Just enjoy wearing a swimsuit, being with your friends around, clicking amazing and crazy pictures and have some fun moments to cherish. We think every woman should experience these moments at least once in her lifetime. Don’t let anything hold you back from having a good time.
These are few tips that will help you get a bikini picture just like a supermodel but remember one thing ‘Your Confidence is what makes you look attractive and beautiful in a picture, just flaunt that and be yourself.’ If you are feeling happy and good about yourself, it will reflect in your pictures too.
