Whether you are preparing for your summer vacation at the resort or trying to escape cold weather with a getaway to a warmer climate, knowing which swimsuit styles work best for your body type and personal style is essential for an elevated experience. Watch out for certain tell-tell signs when determining if your swimsuit is right for you.
Do you have enough support? Perhaps pick out a swimsuit with an underwire for additional support. Are the straps continually falling? Your swimsuit may actually be too big, and no one wants to be constantly fixing their straps while trying to enjoy a swim. Does your neck hurt? If you are into halter straps and your neck is hurting, the swimsuit may be too small for you. Overall, are you uncomfortable? If you are, time to ditch your old suit and suit up in something new. Here are five stylish swimsuit styles that older women will adore in 2021.
Tummy control swimsuits have been in style for some time, with brands constantly improving the technology they use to create even more appealing swimsuits with tummy control. Tummy control swimsuits usually consist of firming fabric that helps flatter all body types. They may also feature to give the swimsuits another stylish element.
Skirted swimwear lends a touch of elegance while offering more coverage at the thighs. If you are not into high-cut leg openings, consider these types of swimsuits. Some skirted swimsuits offer only a little extra coverage.
However, other modest swimsuits provide more coverage and have the appearance of a dress that you can swim in. These styles would look cute with a matching sun hat and designer sunglasses as you lounge under the sun.
Make sure you are choosing styles that fit you properly. If you need more coverage and support, plus-size swimwear offers those same chic designs and colors as regular sizes. From beautiful floral prints to nautical stripes, find the plus-size swimsuits that will let you shine as you enjoy your day at the beach. Look for attributes that will allow you to look even more fabulous, such as ruching, tummy control, a skirted overlay, and sewn-in soft cups for maximum support.
Tankinis are usually sold separately. Tankini tops are just what their name implies: swimsuit tops that look like tank tops. Tankinis are wonderful because they offer ideal coverage. However, you have plenty of styles to choose from when selecting your tankini top. Tankinis with high necklines provide more coverage than, say, a sweetheart neckline. So, explore your options to determine the best fit for you. Afterward, mix and match with your favorite swim bottoms.
Finally, rash guards are ideal for women with sensitive skin or skin conditions affected by the sun and heat. They allow you to swim and lounge in the sun with confidence, knowing that your skin will be protected from harmful UV rays. If you know that you will be spending lots of time outdoors at the beach or pool, research to determine which chic style to purchase. Go for short-sleeved or long-sleeved in your favorite colorway or pattern and match it with a coordinating bottom.
When shopping for swimsuits, consider other features. First, check to see if the swimsuit has sun protection (such as UPF 50). Ensure you will get maximum support at the bust; you have plenty of options, such as an underwire, an underwire with built-in soft cups, and an underwire with removable soft cups. If you are only looking for moderate support at the bust, go for swimsuits with either built-in or removable soft cups. A shelf bra offers the lightest support. A mastectomy bra features built-in soft cups for moderate support with a pocket on each side to accommodate a prosthesis.
Your trip to the beach is not complete without a fashionable cover-up to drape over your swimwear when you are not swimming. Beach cover-ups offer that elegant finish to your overall ensemble and come in various styles, too, just like swimwear. If you want head-to-toe coverage, consider a flowy caftan swim cover-up or a maxi dress. Or just go for swim cover-ups that hit above or at the knee. Swingy wide-leg cover-ups let you cover only your bottom, and cardigan swim cover-ups offer a chic drape over your bikini or one-piece swimsuit.
Elevate your beach, pool, or resort experience in 2021 by shopping for a swimsuit that matches you. Finish off with a stylish sun hat, beach tote, beach towels, and sandals for a fashionable way to enjoy the sun.
