Nicolita Intern Alert: Summer Dresses

May 20, 2009

I came across some summer dresses while browsing and I saw a few fabulous pieces that would go well with our Caliente Nicolita swimwear. One was a fun and flirty Bohemian dress with a bold floral print. What really caught my attention was the lining of the dress embellished with a handkerchief hem. The dress gives a dreamy romantic vibe and is flowy in all the right places with the right coverage. You can find this Jill Stuart dress at for $458.

This Jill Stuart dress (above) would go well as a cover-up with our Nicolita swimwear. On the left is the Spanish Fly Bermuda Triangle Bra Top. It has flirty lace trimming that peeks out when combined with the dress.

If you want to be on the simple-yet-chic side, you can also grab the Tahitian Temptress Triangle Top for just $30 at

Another dress that I saw was this asymmetric mini dress. It reminded me of the gorgeous gondola off-the-shoulder bikini top from Colors are very simple, but definitely nowhere near plain. The asymmetrical neckline and knee-length skirt is universally flattering. You can find this goddess-style dress by T-Bags on for $210.

You can find the Nicolita Gorgeous Gondola bikini top at for $64. Simple and chic.

And finally, maxi dresses. Maxi is a term used to define a long skirt ending below the calf. These dresses are flowy and eye-catching. This particular maxi dress is slimming and is flattering for all body lengths, short and tall alike. You can find this Ikat print maxi dress by Milly on on sale for $332.50.

I thought this dress would go perfectly with the Knotty Nicolita tube top bikini for $59 at The seamless knot on the bikini gives a heart shaped neckline and there is a removable neck strap for more support. The bikini top and the dress work flawlessly together. One for a day at the beach and one suitable for a night out. Sexy and sophisticated all in one.

Over the last 13 years since I started Nicolita in 2003, I have worked with a lot of Nicolita clients on selecting the perfect swimsuit for them. I'm the first to admit that wearing a bikini or one piece swimsuit can be challenging for the majority of us. Even if you have a rockin' body, there are certain styles that work better on certain body shapes.

But I am a strong believer that there is the perfect swimsuit out there for you. And we have gone ahead and picked out some styles that are flattering for you!

Larger cup sizes (D cup and up)

Women with larger cup sizes are primarily looking for 2 things when trying on swimwear: coverage and support. While going up a size in the top can provide more coverage, some styles just won’t provide the coverage and support you may be looking for. Look for styles with side boning and molded cups to give you the support and coverage you desire, without the pinching of an underwire!

For support and coverage, check out:
Maria Knotty Wrap Twist Top

Molded Push Up Bikini Top


Smaller Bust

Have a smaller bust and want to create the illusion of a bigger chest? Styles with details like ruffles and molded cups will add volume and create cleavage!

For adding volume to a smaller chest, check out:

Haute Dot Bow Tie Bikini Tube Top

Rumba Ruffles Triangle Halter


Broad Shoulders

If you’re looking to tone down the appearance of broad shoulders, look for one-shoulder and detailed tops which will draw attention away from wide set shoulders. Deep V necklines will keep the attention focused on your chest and the low cut back will make your shoulders appear more narrow.

To elongate the torso, check out:

Rumba Ruffles One Shoulder Top

Neon Bloom Deep V One Piece


Not So Curvy

Looking to add more curve to that backside? Look for bottoms with backside details like ruffles, shirring, or our signature knotty bottom. These details add more curve to your bottom and create a more shapely bum.

Tummy Control

We all have those days we would rather cover our midsection. To conceal your midriff while flattering your other assets, look for styles that have shirring throughout the midsection to camouflage any insecurities.

Noche Cha Cha High-Waisted Bottoms


More Coverage Overall

Trying to keep your skin out of the sun, or just desire to be more covered? Look for styles that provide more coverage without sacrificing style, like high-neck tops, high-waist bottoms, and one pieces!
