Khloe Kardashian Odom and Kourtney Kardashian dishes out five tips for bathing suit shopping.
Pretty sensible and helpful.
"BIKINIS: They're not just for skinny girls. "Diane
von Furstenberg has a very mod, 1950s bikini where the bottom
is kind of high-waisted—very Marilyn Monroe and very sexy," Khloé says. "So if you have a little tummy, you can hide
TO TIE OR NOT TO TIE: "When you have a bigger butt,
bottoms without ties on the side sometimes will cut into your
skin," Khloé explains. "I have a booty, so I like ties because I can
loosen them up a little."
BREAST IN SHOW: Make sure your bikini top has the
proper support. "My boobs are enormous so I need extra support," reveals
new mom Kourtney. "Knowing if you do or don't need that extra support
is important." Khloé adds, "I've seen women on the beach and I don't
know if they don't see it but their breasts are hanging all the way
down. They need some more support."
ONE WAY: One-piece suits can be young and fabulous.
"I love one-pieces, but I'm still 25," Khloé says. "A lot of one-pieces
look like they're for older women, but nowadays there are so many fun
one-pieces with cutouts and other designs that are really sexy."
KNOW YOURSELF: The most important thing above all
else is to know your body. "You have to know what suits your
body best," Kourtney says. And Khloé warns, "Don't just buy what
everyone else is buying."

"Li’s handcrafted “clothes” inspired Lacoste to tap the Chinese artist to
be the latest designer in its Holiday Collector’s Series, and to create
both a fragment-inspired design for sellable polos and one
ultra-expensive polo from the fragments themselves."
"The entire process, from painting the bowls to finally linking the 317
pieces, took three months, which makes the porcelain polo (above) the
most expensive and exclusive Lacoste shirt to date. The slightly more
user-friendly printed polo (below) was created from digital photographs
of existing shards—fifteenth and sixteenth-century pieces from the
Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty, covered with lotus and baby patterns."
