Bathing Suit Guide for Summer 2019

Shall we start with my best seller of all time?

Strapless: great for small chest ladies, pear shape and petite.

This suit retails for $22.99. It’s a strapless tube top and hi-cut triangle bottom. Moderate coverage, great quality suit with padding inserts in the bandeau and double lined. Fits true to size and comes in 30 colors + print combinations! Some brands differ in sizes so make sure to read the recommendations for each one linked.

More options with the same cut and price:

Hi-Leg style: gives the impression of longer legs!

This suit is a similar cut with straps and a 3 point closure on the top makes it for a more supportive top. Textured rib fabric that comes in two color combinations. The bottom features a high waist and hi-leg cut for a bitsy coverage and more revealing than the above suit. This fabric comes in several cuts so if you love the color but is not a fan of the cut, you’ll be able to find other cuts down below:

Hi-Waist: perfect for boy shape, long torso, and tall girls.

This Tularosa label pom-pom ball accent bathing suit was a best seller last year and a dupe just came out this year. The halter top ties easily around the neck and back. I haven’t worn this top due to my surgeries but it was my go-to cut when my chest was super small. I think it’s super flattering for smaller girls! And the bottom is perfect for any shapes since it conceals a lot and it’s modest while fun! I’ll link the original and the more affordable option as well. Here Bella is wearing the above suit and looks wonderful on her growing body too!!

The retro stripe style is definitely a favorite of mine this season. This suit is on the pricier side but worth every penny in my opinion. I’ve worn it countless times, it feels secure, I love the color options, it’s a classic coverage super flattering! I wore with this oversized shirt and white shorts to the pool.

One Piece Suit: literally great on anyone, from apple shape gals to curvy. From tall to petite, from small to bigger shapes. You can’t go wrong with a one piece suit!

Anytime I can feel like Julia Roberts, I go for it! This print is sooo “Pretty Woman” and I’m in love!! The clip belt takes this one-piece suit to the next level. I felt chic and put together in the pool with the kiddos and hubs. Features a high-leg cut and the shoulder straps are removable and adjustable.

One piece suits are a great choice to lounge. I feel my best when I wear one. Nowadays the one-piece bathing suit comes in so many chic styles such as one shoulder, ruffles, different fabrics, and textures. The possibilities are truly endless! The high-leg gives us average height gals longer legs!

Lastly, I want to feature a style you all seem to love. This one is a cross between vintage and modern one-piece suit! I love the mix print and the fit is truly impeccable. The zipper and tie on the bag offer maximum support and coverage. It’s all in one 🙂
