Are you ready to get your "swim wear" on? 

It’s July and we’re in the thick of summer. Sandals, tank tops, shorts and dare I say, swimsuits. You have decided to spend time at the shore or the beach this summer with the family or your girlfriends, but your dilemma is what to wear. Don't have Halle Berry's body?
