The Yellow Polka Dot Bikini

 by Donna Stellhorn

Stepping out to the pool today? The color of your swim suit sends a message. It can be “come hither” or “get lost”. See if your bathing suit is sending the message you want to send.

Soft pink means “I don't bite”. Pink is a color that denotes friendly and safe. This color will signal that you're willing to be approached. Hot pinks and fuchsias have more energy and so you're approachable but they have to act quickly - you could get away.

A Blue bikini says “I'm easy going”. Blues, especially sky blue and aqua symbolize peaceful, happy coexistence. In these colors you will have time to read your book. Darker blues like a navy swimsuit is more formal and tells prospective partners to only proceed with caution.

Yellow indicates that you're a happy person. While yellow is a harder color for a lot of people to wear studies show that we associate the color yellow with personal happiness and optimism. You will be seen as a kinder person in this color bathing suit.

White is “what you see is what you get”. White doesn't denote purity as much as clarity. People will see you as straightforward and yet accessible. Wearing a white swim suit you will be seen as open and honest.

And of course there's red. Red says “Notice me, I'm available.” Nothing signals a desire to meet a romantic partner better than red swimwear. In this color you attract the most attention. After that it's up to you.
