Swimwear Shopping Guide

Yesterday was National Swimsuit Day, so I wanted to share some of my favorite bikini’s and one-pieces with you, including this palm print number from Swimsuits For All.  I shared a lot about this brand in my last swimwear post, but I wanted to show you an example of their structured bikini tops.  Usually when I try these on, the cups don’t properly fit and I never truly feel supported.  However, when I tried this bikini on it actually fit really well (despite not being offered in cup sizes), made sure the girls stayed in place and looked good doing it!

The high-waisted bottoms add more coverage, which I feel most comfortable in.  I can easily see myself splashing through the waves or running around playing a game of soccer on the beach without having to worry about adjusting anything.  As with my other Swimsuits For All bikini, I did go up a size in the top and up two sizes in the bottom.  As you can see, when you find the right size the fit is great and so flattering!

It feels so good to be confident going into swimsuit season knowing that I have some great options to wear!  Swimsuit shopping is probably the most painful experience outside of jean shopping.  Sometimes you end up trying on thirty different items before you find the perfect one!  My biggest tip: try them on at home.  I love swimsuit shopping online for this reason!  You can try them on in the comfort of your own home, in good lighting, and a good mirror that you trust.  There is nothing worse than being in a fitting room that makes you question yourself!  Something about those moments can zap every ounce of your self-confidence.  Trust me, I’ve been there.

In hopes of making it easier, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite bikinis and one-pieces below from a range of brands I’ve been shopping lately.  And yes, they’re all curve friendly!  There is an assortment from Swimsuits For All, Target, Nordstrom, and Aerie.  Make sure to pay attention to the size guides offered on each site and contemplate ordering multiple sizes.  Finding the right swimsuit can be tricky, so why not make it easier by doing it from the comfort of your own home. Plus, online returns are a piece of cake!

As always, feel free to use the comment section below for any questions!  Happy shopping 🙂
