Spring break is upon us and summer isn’t far behind, which means, swimsuit season is HERE!
Swimsuits MIGHT be my least favorite thing to shop for, right behind jeans and shoes for my kids.
So I made it INCREDIBLY easy for you! I went ahead and ordered all the suits from Amazon and found the 6 most flattering suits I could find. For reference, I’m not teeny tiny, I stand 5’8 inches tall and wear a size 10 in pants. My chest is proportional to my body, wearing a 36DD bra and I’ll be honest, nothing is where it used to be on my body before having 3 kids, but that’s okay.
When I am looking for a swimsuit, I’m not just looking for flattering, I’m looking for functional as well. Most of my swimsuit wearing occasions are at the neighborhood pool with three kids. I can’t risk having a “nip slip” or worse, so I need to make sure everything is tucked in nicely, if ya know, ya know 😉 So here’s what on my “must-have” list:
- neighborhood pool appropriate
- tummy control/coverage
Here’s what I found!
I am in LOVE with this cute striped, one shoulder suit! The geometric pattern and ruffle detail make it INSANELY flattering. I love the coverage of this suit, I’d feel comfortable in it with my kids at the pool but also feel super cute! This suit pairs so well with white denim, making it super versatile! I sized up one size to XL
I love a good tummy control, black swimsuit! This one has the cute scallop detail and tie halter which gives it so much more interest than just a plain black suit! This fits TTS, I’m in L
This suit was a top seller last year! It comes in multiple colors, but the black is my favorite! FIts TTS, I’m in a size L
This was another top seller from last year! I love the one shoulder look! and the ruffle detail is a little more subtle than the blue and white striped one above. This one also comes in a TON of colors and patterns! This fits TTS.
This suit MIGHT be my favorite! This one is a little low cut for the pool with my kids, but I’m planning to wear this on vacation with my hubby! I LOVE the ruffle detail on the shoulder. Because of the deep v, I think this suit is insanely flattering! This one is a winner for sure! Check out the other colors this is offered in. I sized up to XL in this one
You girls LOVED this look on my social media and I have to say, it’s more flattering than I was expecting. The top features a REALLY cute lace up back, adding to the detail. The scallop edging is so freaking cute! I love the high waisted bottoms, making me feel like I JUST MIGHT be able to pull off a two-piece after all! This fits TTS. I’m pictured wearing XL but I’d stick to your normal size.
I can’t wait to hear what is your favorite look!! Make sure to tag me on Instagram when you grab one of these!
Accessories for you
We can’t have swimwear without ALL the accessories.
Here are two of my FAVORITE sunglasses
This is my FAVORITE self-tanner, which for me is a MUST when heading out in a suit!
I was unable to find my hat and kimono that I was able to link, so I grabbed some similar styles for you!
