As temperatures heat up and we prepare for summer days by the pool or on the beach, we're tasked again with finding a swimsuit. When you're on the curvier side it can feel like the swimsuit world is against you. Picking out a new swimsuit for summer should be fun and exciting activity but it quickly turns into a chore of trying to find which swimsuit hides the parts of us we don't want anyone to see.
This summer let's change the narrative by embracing our beautiful curves and highlighting our best assets! It's essential to find the perfect swimsuit that makes you feel fabulous! Here are my top picks for swimwear as a curvy woman myself that will make you feel confident and comfortable.
High-waisted bikinis are my personal favorite! They accentuate your waist and also flatter your curves. I love this retro-inspired color palette on this floral bikini from Cupshe. I have a few swimsuits from this brand and not only are they affordable, they're comfortable and good quality.
I personally purchased this one and absolutely love it! Don't let the size of the model deter you from giving this style a chance. The swimsuit is very comfortable, hugs in all the right places and accentuates the parts of your body you want to show off. Ruching is a great detail that can help smooth your shape throughout the tummy area. The plunging neckline also helps to balance out proportions. I purchased the swimsuit in the Royal Blue color as show above but it comes in 24 different color options.
Now before you say Aerie is for teens, I could never wear that! This swimsuit has rave reviews on their website from women of all ages, shapes and sizes. They praise the comfortability of this swimsuit as well as its support. It's the perfect travel swimsuit that won't leave you with awkward tan lines. Available in Big Sur and Red Sprinkel.
Sexy One Piece Swimsuit Halter Plunge V Neck Monokini Hollow Out Bathing Suit | Tempt Me via Amazon | $28
I absolutely LOVE this swimsuit, especially because it comes in Barbiecore pink! Perfect for this summer that's all about neon and vibrant colors. I personally purchased this swimsuit as well in Royal Blue and Pine Green. Normally I'm not a fan of horizontal stripes but the horizontal cutouts on this swimsuit actually accentuate your waistline. The v-neck is very sexy but comfortable with a halter tie back. The material is good quality and it's comfortable as well. I think my next purchase will be this style but in the pink.
The Mykonos Plunge is a chic and feminine option that highlights your collarbone and shoulders while providing ample coverage. The fabric is thick and comfortable making it worth the price. It's easy to put on and take off. The horizontal band around the waist accentuates your smallest part while the deep v on top balances out your curves.
This retro-inspired swimsuit is currently on sale so get it while it lasts! This halter swimsuit offers the perfect blend of coverage and style, making it an excellent choice for us curvy ladies. The halter provides additional support while the ruffle trim accentuates your curves. The bottom is also full coverage for those of us with larger assests on the bottom. I can't say enough good things about this brand. The price is fantastic and their swimsuits are comfortable and stylish.
Don't forget to accessorize your swimwear with the perfect tropical hand-painted earrings. Available in Green, Teal, Gold, Rose Gold and Baby Pink these statement earrings are perfect for a day by the pool or for your next ocean vacation.
Remember that confidence is the most important accessory you can wear, so choose a swimsuit that makes you feel beautiful and ready to take on the summer in style.
