When it comes to swimwear, do you like to rock a classic triangle bikini or bandeau top or is a one-piece more your style? Swimwear has become surprisingly versatile recently, as more women try and make their swimsuits work from the beach to the bar. Wear a crochet top over your bikini and add a pair of cutoffs, and you're ready for an al fresco dinner. Or, wear a one-piece with a denim vest and maxi skirt.

What’s the most flattering swimsuit for my body type?


Vintage-inspired swimsuits like high-waisted bikinis and ruched one-piece suits are slimming and deliver great coverage in the tummy area -- these are universally flattering. For the body-confident, the monokini is a hot alternative to the string bikini. Swimwear that is ruched, shirred and gathered is your friend if you have a smaller frame. Ruffles and prints are also tricks of the petite trade. Full-figured gals get the support they need with swim tops that use bra sizing and underwire to ensure a good fit. Above all, nothing is sexier than confidence so choose a swimsuit you can be yourself in.

How should I accessorize my swimwear?


Let’s go from head to foot. Sun protection is essential, so pack sunscreen and a hat. Wide brim floppy hats, baseball caps and straw fedoras are all great options. Grab a pair of sunglasses to shield your eyes from bright sun rays. Bring a cover-up that transitions well from beach to dinner like a breezy sundress, flowy kaftan, or denim shorts with slub tank, while slip-on sandals are a step up from flip-flops. Grab a large tote to carry all this, and don’t forget to include a beach towel and water bottle!

What’s the best swimsuit for beach and pool activities?


For active lifestyle enthusiasts, there’s swimwear that’s just as fashionable as it is good for sport. Sports bra style tops paired with moderate coverage bikini bottoms or swim shorts will keep you held in while hitting the waves, playing beach volleyball or running on the sand. Try tankinis and rashguards with SPF for an even more secure fit and extra sun protection.
