Living in Seattle, our swimsuits don’t see a lot of action, so we can sometimes go a while before needing to do our least favorite kind of shopping–trying on swimsuits! We both needed to update our swimwear this year, however, so we knew we couldn’t put it off any longer. It was time to hunt for some new swimsuits. With all the cheeky styles that seem to be everywhere, we were concerned that finding cute & comfortable swimsuits with great coverage would be a challenge! Fortunately, we quickly found several that we loved and felt good in!

Ruffle & Halter Swimsuits

Our biggest issue in finding a cute swimsuit is our smallest asset–our chests! No matter your size, finding the right fit in the chest area is crucial. The styles that work best for our smaller chest size are ones that “distract” rather than emphasize our chest area. Flat, smooth fronts are not our friend lol! A ruffle here, some ruching there, and strategically placed seams do wonders for creating shape (or even minimizing shape, if you’re looking for the opposite!). Krista’s ruffles add volume and a plunging neckline creates a visual shape. A halter style is great for small or large chests, and padded inserts can also add curves. The ruching detail on this suit is particularly flattering while adding interest and style! 

Floral Swimsuits

Who doesn’t love a swimsuit in a fun floral or tropical print? A gorgeous print isn’t just pretty to look at, it can also act as camouflage for areas you’re looking to minimize. Krista’s swimsuit has a square neckline that provides great coverage and the cute ruffle straps visually create shape through a “shoulder pad” effect. I love the modern look of this monochrome green floral swimsuit. It has a criss-cross feature under the chest area that gives shape and volume. Added ruching in the torso is extra flattering. Both suits are affordable, available in other colors, and have great bum coverage too!

One-Shoulder comfortable Swimsuits

We both love a good one-shoulder moment! For many women, that can be a body part that looks good as we age, so why not show it off? Highlighting the shoulder draws the eye there, taking the emphasis off the chest area. We love the cute bow detail on Krista’s swimsuit, and the fun cutout detail on my swimsuit is sporty and cool! Like the floral swimsuits above, these suits are also very affordable, available in other colors, and provide great bum coverage!

Tankini Comfortable Swimsuits

We recently had the opportunity to try out some Tommy Bahama tankinis, and we were pleasantly surprised by the amazing fit and flattering style! Sometimes you just want the ease of a two-piece without the exposure of a bikini! These swimsuits check all the right boxes: modern prints that aren’t too mature, ruching and well-placed seams that shape and smooth, and bottoms that don’t look like granny panties but keep our cheeks from hanging out! Sporty and chic, these suits made us feel confident and cute. What more could we ask for!

comfortable coverups

It’s not easy choosing a cute & comfortable swimsuits, and finding one that has great coverage is even harder. If you’re looking for a new swimsuit, we hope you’ll give these a try. We’ve had great feedback from women of different body types that these swimsuits are winners! Don’t let the task of swimsuit shopping keep you from enjoying all that summer has to offer. There’s a swimsuit for every body!! Happy shopping!
