Posing in your bikini can be intimidating. You may look amazing in person but sometimes it is hard to capture your best bikini angle without a little preparation. You have to think about your what angle best suit you and how to cure that behind-the-camera-slouching disorder.
We want to give you a few tips for posing for bikini photos:
In bikini photos you want to be luxuriously long, not short and squat. Keep in mind the double L when posing. Try to elongate yourself in whatever fashion you can. There are three key tips to keep in mind that help elongate your body.
Tip 1: Have good, straight posture.
This works magic in a few ways. For one having good posture lengthens your body, giving the appearance of a longer and leaner figure. The other perk of straight posture is that your stomach flattens out. Try it out: sit up straight with good posture and touch your belly. No rolls, right? Now slouch down. Instantly you feel the jelly donuts appear!
Tip 2: Long Limbs.
Your legs or arms can be the secret ingredient to a bomb bikini photo. Always try to accentuate your limbs. Angling your legs toward the camera whether sitting or standing and stretching out your arms or letting them hang long is a must. Your limbs will elongate your body and draw attention to your extremities making you appear longer and leaner.
Tip 3: Laying down is always your friend when you are in a bikini.
Gravity is a mysterious thing that flattens your abs when you lay back. Whether it’s an aerial shot or a side view, laying down will lean you out.
Tip 4: When posing in your bikini it is a must to remember to have fun with it!
When you feel uncomfortable you will look uncomfortable, it’s that simple. If you are not a smile and wave type of model instead try getting into action! The classic walking shot always looks great. Maybe do a slow-motion twirl! Have a beautiful moment captured rather than having the pressure to create a beautiful moment. With this in mind, it is always great to add in some props. A flower, palm frond, or sarong can go a long way. Adding props into your photo does two things: it busies your hands that might otherwise feel awkward and it adds an interesting element into your photo.
One last quick tip: great lighting and a beautiful background never hurt. Get out your bikini, go to a beautiful spot and get posing! We would love to see all of your beautifully hacked bikini photos! Tag us in your shot on Instagram @blendbikinis
