Best Swimsuits – Flattering Swimwear

best swimsuits

Rye $126

Each summer I outfit my clients in the best swimsuits. Each one is tailored to my client’s needs and water lifestyle. Their activities range from kayaking and water slides to lounging by a pool they have no intention of getting into, but the requests are consistent: flatter my body. I have also been asked about minimizing tan lines, supporting the breasts, emphasizing the breasts, and general style wishes. Some of my favorite requests are for stylish, sporty looks for my more active clients. Below are the best swimsuits I have put on my clients this month. I will be updating this post with all my amazing finds throughout the summer.

Miraclesuit Crisscross One-Piece Swimsuit

This Miraclesuit Crisscross One-Piece Swimsuit is beloved by many women who desire the most slimming look possible. It is best suited for the less busty.

Sizing Tip: Runs small, order one size up.

Uniqlo Women Long-Sleeve Rash Guard

best swimsuits

Uniqlo $39.90

I adore this Uniqlo Women Long-Sleeve Rash Guard. It is as flattering as it is stylish. I will be using this for colder days in the water and sun protection on hotter water sports days. This suit is super thin and lightweight making it incredibly comfortable. I wear it without anything underneath, but I have recommended a white bathing suit top to my clients who want a thicker cover over their breasts.

Sizing Tip: Runs small, order a size up.

Trina Turk Flutter Bandeau Bikini Top

This Trina Turk Flutter Bandeau Bikini Top can be bad for tan lines on your arms, but it’s a great look. It hides inner arm issues and armpit fat. This top is available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, and Dillard’s.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Trina Turk Studio Solids Bikini Bottoms

The ruching on this Trina Turk Studio Solids Bikini Bottoms is fantastically flattering on your hips. These bottoms are available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, and Dillard’s.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size, but I always like to compare with a size up when it comes to bathing suits.

J.Crew Plunging Halter Swim Dress

J.Crew $138 $124

For those in need of a more conservative look, this J.Crew Plunging Halter Swim Dress is very flattering.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size, but order a size down if you want to compare two sizes.

Luli Fama ’Wavy’ Brazilian Side Tie Bikini Bottoms

I love Luli Fama ’Wavy’ Brazilian Side Tie Bikini Bottoms for their flattering behind. Bottoms with the ruched center seam create a perky shape for the bum and prevent drooping over the years. Bottoms without the ruched center seam tend to get baggy after years of chlorine, salt water, and washings. These bottoms are available at Nordstrom, Zappos, and Amazon.

Sizing Tip: I always order a larger size to get more front coverage. I make up for the larger size by tying the strings tighter.

Rye Oh My Bikini Top

This Rye Oh My Bikini Top is one of the most flattering and edgier bikinis this season. It makes your breasts look fantastic. This top is available at Nordstrom and Shopbop.

Sizing Tip: Runs a little small, order your usual size as well as a size up to compare.

Rye Oh My Bikini Bottoms

Becca $36

The indigo shade of the Becca ‘Color Code’ Triangle Bikini Top is wonderful on all skin tones. The style of the bikini top is also flattering, sexy, and creates the least amount of tan lines, as well as the most flattering tan lines. This top is available at Nordstrom, Zappos, and Bloomingdale’s,

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Becca Color Code Tie Side Pant Bottoms

best swimsuits

Becca $38

The Becca Color Code Tie Side Pant Bottoms in matching indigo are high quality with a nice thickness — and the side tie prevents muffin tops.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

O’Neill Highway Stripe One-Piece Swimsuit

best swimsuits

O’Neill $79.50

This O’Neill Highway Stripe One-Piece Swimsuit makes your breasts look amazing and slims your torso. It’s great for a sporty, sexy look. This swimsuit is available at Nordstrom, O’Neill, Macy’s, Zappos, and Amazon.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Vix Swimwear San Andreas Ripple Bikini Top

best swimsuits

Vix $86

The Vix Swimwear San Andreas Ripple Bikini is very flattering. A tie bottom is always the most flattering option because it doesn’t cut into fat, and a triangle top creates the longest line for your torso.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size, but order a size up if you want more coverage.

Becca ‘Color Code’ Triangle Bikini Top In Raisin

Becca $36

This burgundy shade of the Becca ‘Color Code’ Triangle Bikini Top is so rich and unique. It also gives a little more coverage than other triangle bikinis.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Becca Color Code Side Tie Bikini Bottoms

Becca $38

The Becca Color Code Side Tie Bikini Bottoms in matching burgundy are the same style as the indigo ones mentioned above. The string ties and thicker fabric are very flattering.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size, but order a size larger for more coverage.

Miraclesuit One-Piece Swimsuit

The Miraclesuit One-Piece Swimsuit is the best option for bustier women who desire the most slimming one-piece suit.

Miraclesuit Bell Rives Charmer One-Piece Swimsuit

I adore this fresh Miraclesuit Bell Rives Charmer One-Piece Swimsuit. It’s great for a busty woman wanting to have some fun with her swimsuit, while achieving a slim look. This swimsuit is available at Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Zappos, and Amazon.

Tory Burch Costa Smocked Bandeau Bikini Top

Hate those string tan lines? This Tory Burch Costa Smocked Bandeau Bikini Top is great for a strapless look that stays put and gives you coverage. This top is available at Neiman Marcus and Saks 5th Avenue.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size, but depending on the coverage you want, order a size up or down to compare.

Tory Burch Costa Smocked Hipster Bikini Bottoms

These Tory Burch Costa Smocked Hipster Bikini Bottoms are another flattering option that does not involve tying a string. They are available at Bloomingdale’s, Shopbop, and Neiman Marcus.

Sizing Tip: Runs small. Order a size or two up.

J.Crew U-front Bandeau Bikini Top In Liberty Alpine Pasture

best swimsuits

J.Crew $64

I love this J.Crew U-front bandeau bikini top in Liberty alpine pasture for laying out and preventing décolletage tan lines. The matching string bikini bottoms are almost sold out, but you can pair this with a solid colored green or navy bikini bottom of your choice, like Luli Fama’s Wavy Brazilian Side Tie Bikini in green, aka ‘armed and ready.’

Miraclesuit Breakers Sanibel One-Piece Swimsuit

This Miraclesuit Breakers Sanibel One-Piece Swimsuit is another great option for women who want coverage and slimming in their swimwear. The sweetheart neckline flatters so many body tops. This suit is available at Nordstrom and Zappos.

Sizing Tip: Runs small. Order a size up.
