These are SO flattering!
Whether you’re sitting by your pool, going to the beach, lounging by the lake, or just lying in your backyard pretending you’re somewhere tropical, I’ve got the sexiest and most flattering swimsuits for you! Who else is planning to enjoy the sun somewhere on the beach this spring/summer?? With these bathing suits you are done!
SWIMSUIT | IN BLACK | THIS YEAR’S VERSION
#1 | One piece with straps
This one piece is super flattering AND sexy! I love how the straps go all the way down the front and back. You would think it would feel less secure… but the fit and fabric are so nice that you feel completely sucked in and safe! I also love the gold grommet detailing on the front. It gives the suit an even more luxurious look. This one piece is sold out in brown, but is still available in some sizes in black (linked above). I’ve also paired this year’s version of the swimsuit that has the same sexy strappy look! I’ve also linked more swimwear from the brand below…

#2 | Corrugated Two Piece
This exact bathing suit by Johanna Ortiz is unfortunately sold out, but I wanted to share it anyway as an example of finding bathing suits for YOUR body. A ruffle top works so well for me because it really builds up my narrow shoulders, and in contrast makes my waist look smaller…not to mention the drama!! Johanna Ortiz makes beautiful swimsuits with chic design details. If you’re going on a special honeymoon or just want to treat yourself to a new glamorous swimsuit, this is the brand to shop for! I’ve included some of my favorite Johanna Ortiz bikinis and bathing suits below.

By the way, here you will find everything you need to know about determining your body shape.
#3 | One piece with ruffles
Did I mention I love Johanna Ortiz swimsuits?? This is another one piece swimsuit from Johanna Ortiz. As you can see I stick with the ruffles because they WORK on me! This swimsuit is even more waist-defining with the braided detail. The braided waistband emphasizes the thinnest part of my torso while the ruffles at the top form the shoulders. It’s such a pretty and flattering one piece! Sadly it’s sold out, but I linked a similar option above with the same ruffle and waist-defining details… it’s also in a gorgeous ecru color!
SWIMSUIT | IN BLACK
#4 | Blue Becca one-piece
This swimsuit is from Becca, one of my favorite swimwear brands. They make beautiful suits that are so flattering and really make you feel sucked in and confident! This exact suit also comes in a ton of colors!

#5 | One Piece Halter Neck
Love this gorgeous retro one-piece swimsuit with halter neck from Norma Kamali! It looks like a throwback to the 50’s and 60’s. I feel so chic and sexy in this swimsuit and the allover ruffles make it super flattering. Love the sexy deep v and mesh overlay. This is a striking swimsuit! It makes you look AND feel good. It is no longer available in this ivory mesh color but it is available in black mesh, black or white… Personally, I love the black mesh option!

#6 | Two Piece Black Ruffles With High Waist Bottoms
First I want to talk about these pants… they are Becca’s and I’ve had them for years. They have ruffles that are so flattering, and I love that they have a high waist! This bandeau style bikini top from Trina Turk is so cute and another piece I’ve had for a few years now. I love the ruffle and think this is a great top to have in your bathing suit wardrobe to take off and mix and match with other bottoms!

Next…the famous $26 Amazon swimsuit! I did a whole post about this bathing suit! When I ordered it, I thought it wouldn’t be flattering or cute at all…but it is! I now have it in three colors. You can read my full review of this magical Amazon bikini here.

#8 | Vitamin A Bikini
This Vitamin A swimsuit is one that I have taken on many trips. It’s SO sexy! Vitamin A is a go-to brand that I check for sexier bikini options. These bottoms are full coverage, but the rings on the hips make it feel much sexier. The top also has great coverage… or great coverage for a triangle top. Both pieces are sold out, but I’ve linked more of my favorites to Vitamin A below…

#9 | Vix Swimsuit
If you’re looking for EXTRA sexy swimsuits, Vix swimsuits are the best brand to check out! This exact bikini only has a few sizes left, but the brand has a ton of great options that you can shop here. When I buy a bikini, I look for interesting details like the gold bar in the middle. I also like bright colors and prints.

#10 | Pink Bikini
This is the perfect brand to try if you need some basic bikini essentials! Got this cute pink bikini last year for my trip to Arizona. The color is gorgeous, I love that the top has sleeves (extra sun protection is always a plus!), and the high waist is awesome! These bottoms are even more flattering because of the twisted detail at the front. What do you all think of the French-cut bottoms? I didn’t think I’d like it, but I love the way it makes your legs look longer!

#11 | Tropical print swimsuit
This tropical print swimsuit from La Blanca is the perfect blend of whimsy and sophistication. The print is perfect for a beach vacation. You can wear it as a deep v, a wetsuit (like I am above), or cross the straps and wear it like a halter suit. You all know how much I love a multi-purpose piece! The band under the bust helps shape you and define your waist. La Blanca is a GREAT brand to check out for sexy suits over 40 (that cover your parts).

#12 | Pure one piece
This is one of my favorites because it is SO glam! It is a beautiful translucent one piece piece from OYE. This line is pricey, but I think they are worth the investment. About the transparency factor… I guess this depends on what you have going on down below. If you are a full, 70s-esque girl, you might have some issues with the see-through suit. Otherwise I think you’re fine. 😉 This exact swimsuit is sold out, so I’ve linked a similar option in black!

SWIMSUIT | IN WHITE
#13 | Striped swimsuit with belt
It’s an older suit from Solid & Striped, and I absolutely love it! The crew neckline adds length and can help minimize a larger bust. It also pulls double duty and enhances a smaller bust because it scoops so low (with a little cleavage). But it really is the belt that makes the suit! I felt like a Bond girl wearing this bad boy to the beach!

More swimsuits for women over 40
My favorite brands are: Becca, Robin Piccone and La Blanca. These are ideal for women over 40. Not too skinny. For bikinis, I love Vix and Vitamin A. However, these two brands routinely have less coverage.
