Top 5 Halloween Costumes to style with your NICOLITA Swimwear

October 20, 2014

Halloween is just around the corner and I’m seriously racking my brain what to dress up as this year. I usually head down to our local Halloween MEGA store, browse the aisles at the sexy Halloween costume photos pics for adults. Which are quite scandalous at times….haha

Then I came to the realization that most of these costumes at the store are Lycra/ Spandex based and it’s the accessories that really make the costumes look great. I thought to myself, why not re purpose some Nicolita Swimwear styles and transform them into amazing Halloween costumes.

My Halloween Swimwear Challenge was set and here are my TOP 5 Halloween Costumes to style with your Nicolita Swimwear.

I wanted to start off this Halloween Costume Swimwear challenge with The One, The Only, Carmen Miranda. Honestly, I probably could have selected a ton of more mix and match swimwear style options for this Halloween costume swimwear challenge, but the Rumba Ruffles One Shoulder One Piece in Sol Yellow was the best.

1. Rumba Ruffle One Shoulder One Piece Swimwear ON SALE

I  love how the ruffles on the one shoulder will have great movement while you are shaking your maracas. Click on the above link to check out the back shirring detail. It comes all the way from the bottom. Also, having a one piece swimwear to cover your stomach as a top makes you feel a little more  comfortable too. It will tuck in seamless into that skirt. Similar to a Bodysuit top. If you want to rock a CROP TOP, may I suggest the following that would also look amazing with this Carmen Miranda combo.

I added that RED belt to bring in some more color blocking colors pulled from the hat.

2. Tropical Fruit Hat Costume $22.09 Available with Amazon Prime (Free Shipping)

This tropical fruit hat is probably the MOST important piece to this entire costume. Carmen Miranda was known for her trademark fruit hats and unique lavish costumes.

3. Maracas $7.35 Available with Amazon Prime (Free Shipping)

From my experience throughout the years of photo shoots and fashion shows, as soon as I would hand a model a prop like a pair of Maracas the photos and show would come to life. It’s like you now have something to do with your hands especially when snapping a #SELFIE.

4. Black Ruffle Skirt $22.19 Available with Amazon Prime (Free Shipping)

You can probably select a bunch of different options for the skirt portion, but this black ruffle skirt was cut high enough on the leg and had great ruffles all around. Select something that is waist high and layer a brightly colored belt around too.

5. Red Lipstick FREE probably in your makeup bag. If not, run out to CVS and pick one up for under $5.00

6. Salsa Strappy Heels $25.99

I love these floral heels because since this costume is pretty over the top with color you don’t want the look to get boring on your feet. Carmen Miranda’s costumes had amazing attention to detail and so should your feet.

Fit Guide and Suggested Styles

Do you hate when your bikini bottoms dig into your hips? Have no fear, Nicolita NO PINCH FIT Cuban Style Bottoms are here!!

Hola! I'm Nicolita owner & designer Nicole Di Rocco. In this video I'll show you why and how we created our signature Nicolita Bottom fit.

Nicolita has one-of-kind swimwear styles that are carefully designed to flatter your figure. Say goodbye to those ill-fitting bikini bottoms and say hello to comfort and fit!

Below are a few of our most popular styles that were designed with YOUR hips in mind.

Welcome to the Nicolita Fitting Room!

I want to help you find the Perfect Fit Nicolita Style. Below I have created a Nicolita Swimwear Fit guide to match your curves with our swimwear options and styles. If you still have questions of which bikini or one piece style would look best with your body shape just Call 866-NICOLITA (866-642-6548)  Email hola@mynicolita, or Skype me @mynicolita.     

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. 

To add curves to a not so curvy bottom, check out:

Rumba Ruffles Forgiven Bottom

Signature Knotty Bottom


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.

For tummy control, check out:

Deep V One Piece With Shirring

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!
