Your honeymoon is all about relaxing and celebrating with your new spouse after committing to spend the rest of your lives together. It’s a time of joy and intimacy, but if you’re headed to a tropical climate, it can also bring up some body issues.
Fortunately, there’s no reason why you can’t feel gorgeous on your wedding day and drop-dead sexy on your honeymoon! Check out our top tips for feeling stunning while lounging poolside or strutting your stuff on the beach.
Don’t stress about your size or shape on your honeymoon
I know, definitely easier said than done, but the truth is you don’t have to work out constantly to get a “bikini body.” Just put a bikini on your body! It’s as simple as that. Wear your swimsuit with confidence and show the world that you love your body—and don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you have to lose weight for your honeymoon.
Pack plenty of options
If you’re going to be spending a lot of time on the beach, you’ll definitely want more than one swimsuit. Opt for a couple bikinis as well as some one-pieces so you have plenty of options depending on what activities you end up doing and how you’re feeling each day. Bikinis are perfect for days when you want to work on your tan and show some skin, while a one-piece is great for any beach activities that require you to move around easily without worrying about keeping your top in place.
Know your own comfort level on your honeymoon
Every woman is different and has a different level of comfort in what she wears. Some women may only want to wear a bikini while others may want a flowy cover-up. Don’t feel pressured to wear a specific style or type of outfit based on what you see in magazines or on Instagram. Instead, find the colors, patterns and styles that make you personally feel like a model. That’s what matters most!
Accessorize to the nines
It’s the little details that can really make your honeymoon outfits stand out. A floppy hat can both protect you from the sun’s rays and add an extra dose of style to your beach garb, and big sunglasses are a classic look that will keep you from squinting all day.
Try rompers as well as dresses
A classic sundress is comfortable, easy to wear over a swimsuit and looks great in photos. But don’t be afraid to try something new and pack a few rompers as well. This stylish look is perfect for helping you feel like you’re walking the runway while also keeping you super comfy and cool in the heat.
Splurge on lingerie for your honeymoon
It’s your honeymoon, so why not choose some nightwear that makes you feel sexy? Don’t limit yourself to Victoria’s Secret. Instead, check out some of the amazing shops online that offer lingerie in a variety of sizes and fabrics so you can find the perfect looks to wow your new husband each night. Bonus: lingerie is small and easy to pack, leaving you plenty of room in your suitcase for additional outfits.
When it comes to choosing what to wear for your honeymoon, it’s important to choose what makes you feel good. And don’t forget that your partner loves you for you, not just for how you look. Let that love give you even more confidence and say yes to that stunning bikini!
