Best Bikini Brands For Women Over 40

Women over 40 are usually hesitant to even think about buying swimsuits… let alone bikinis! If you’re not a fan of bikinis, that’s okay, I have plenty of one-piece swimsuits on the site and you can find them in the posts and video I linked below. First I want to discuss the strategy… This is NOT the time to fly blind. Have a plan. Know your body. Know your brands.

This is the perfect brand to try if you need some basic bikini essentials! I bought this cute pink bikini last year for my trip to Arizona. This exact suit is sold out, but this year’s version is a beautiful lapis blue. I love that the top has sleeves (extra sun protection is always a plus!), and the high-waisted bottoms are incredibly flattering.

Vitamin A is a sexy brand with less coverage but great pieces and design details! The bikini I’m wearing above has cool rings on the side of the bottom that make it just that little bit different! But this year’s version of this white suit has the coolest cutouts on both the top and bottom – so trendy!

Vix is ​​definitely the sexiest brand on this list. They usually have less coverage and more strappy, sexy details. If you want to spice up your next vacation or pool day, this is the perfect brand to try!

Bikinis with more coverage

Becca – I love this brand! They have a really nice fabric that keeps everything in place so you feel safe! I also have a few one-pieces that are great.
L*Space – Has very nice colors and patterns. The material is thinner, so it is very stretchy and comfortable, but still gives you a feeling of security.
Johanna Ortiz – You can find some eye catching eye-catching swimsuits from this brand! She also has great one-piece pieces!

My body

Here’s what I know about my body… Since I’m rectangular in shape, athletically built and lacking in definition in my waistline, I tend to prefer a bikini as it creates more of an hourglass shape. I also prefer width or volume to my chest with wider straps, ruffles, or a one-shoulder top. I don’t like straps that wrap around my torso because I have very little space between my bust and waist. I’ve talked about how my body and diet changed through menopause here if you’re interested.

Your body and what to watch out for…

I could spend endless blogs outlining the differences between pieces and what to look for, BUT I want to keep it simple because I know you’re busy. I have pointed out in this post and this post what to look for in a swimsuit depending on your body shape. But the most important thing is actually knowing your body shape. If you don’t already know, start here!

Here’s the headline: Prints, ties, ruffles, straps, and sparkles all draw attention or add volume. Put those details at the half that needs volume to create balance. In other words, if you’re short-chested, that’s where you put the zing…to add volume. If, on the other hand, you have bigger hips, don’t wear a thong with tie straps in a floral print. you with me??
If you want a top with modest coverage, look for a bandeau top with ruffles or a one-shoulder top. I have a few of these tops and they cover everything!

If you’re over 40 and have a favorite bikini brand that you love… share it in the comments! Don’t keep that to yourself!
