Ahhh…swimsuit season. It’s a love hate relationship, right? The love of slow summer days spent by the water is always a joy but I’d venture to say most women don’t love putting on bathing suit. We all have our areas of concern we are trying to cover or conceal and the hunt for the perfect suit can feel impossible at times. I thought it would be helpful highlight an array of swimsuit options based upon the areas of concern most women have. From chest support, full booty coverage, figure flattering silhouettes and even affordable options, I hope you can find something perfect for you for this summer season. Some of the suits qualify for multiple categories so be sure to read the captions for each suit. I will say, with good swimwear, you pay for what you get. An affordable option is not as near as likely to give you the support, coverage or high quality material as a higher priced option. As frugal as I can be when it comes to fashion, I splurge on my swimsuit. When you think how often you will wear it all summer, it really is a worthy investment. I have linked every suit and you can click on the image and it will take you to the website.
I really think one pieces are just overall problematic for those who have longer torso’s and would steer someone in the direction of a two piece. I’m 5'“9’ and sometimes have issues with this too when I wear one pieces as they can feel like they are pulling in the groin area. I did find this great brand (Andie) that offers their suits with a longer torso option. They have a fit finder quiz that allows you to select exactly what you are looking for and they generate the best option for you based upon what you entered. I haven’t worn this brand so I can’t speak to the quality but the price seems to be pretty good. It’s worth checking out!
Bust Support for Larger Chests
This is definitely not my area of need or expertise, but I know underwire can be super helpful for larger busted women to help them feel lifted and supported. There are tons of underwire options that look just like a bra top but since this is geared more towards moms and modesty, I tried to find options that didn’t look like lingerie.
Wether you have lost it all from nursing babies or you just wern’t blessed with much to begin with…not being able to fill out a swimsuit top can be discouraging. Being a smaller chested person myself, I like to find something with ruffles to hide whats not there. Here are some great options if you don’t want to highlight what you are lacking ;)
Full Booty Coverage
Can I get an amen that the high cut, thong, barely there swim bottom trend is just the worst?!? Unless you haven’t been through puberty or you are just a blessed woman that has little to no fat in your booty area…most women don’t want their bottom hanging out. This is the biggest area of concern for myself and not only do I want coverage from behind, I also don’t want anything thats too high cut in the front.
Obviously swimsuits are form fitting but it is certainly nice when you can get something that creates the illusion of a smaller waist. Here are a few favorites that have flattering silhouettes:
I know not everyone can afford a $100+ swimsuit so I wanted to be sure to include to lower priced options as well.
I could link so many more but wanted to keep it more concise. Feel free to reach out if you don’t see something here and I’ll be happy to help you search for a suit suited for you :)
