swimsuits on real people (editors and readers alike)

I'm proud to introduce you to Agua Bendita, a Colombian brand that makes beautiful swimwear. The lace-up of these high-rise bottoms adjust to different body shapes.
I had a tummy tuck over two years ago, yet I haven't worn a low-rise bikini. While my reasons to go for surgery were mainly medical to help my hernia and diastasis recti, there was always that part of me that thought I would go back easily to wearing my pre-baby bikinis (remember that postpartum swimwear article?). It didn't...
I don't look forward to shopping for swimsuits b/c it’s tricky finding tops to support large busts. Even if I get excited about fun colors & patterns, it's difficult to find those same pretty swimsuits in supportive styles.
It’s time for the dreaded bathing suit search. I never look forward to shopping for swimsuits (I'm probably not alone in this), because it’s tricky finding tops to support a larger chest. Even if I can get excited about fun colors and patterns, it's difficult to find those same pretty swimsuits in a supportive style. This year, I'm determined...
Everlane's new swim line? We're on it! Solid colors in dreamy shades, 7 bikini styles, & square neck + plunge v one-piece swimsuits. TME's initial review inside.
I was barely two sips into my first cup of coffee when the email arrived in my inbox: "Do you want early access to Everlane's new swim line?" Um, I don't have to be awake to know the answer to that...YES. I was thrilled when I found out Everlane was coming out with a swimwear line. Two of my favorite...
Flirty, flattering swimwear — we crave it! SO, we're pleasantly surprised by Sea Level Swim. Supportive swimsuits (think postpartum) reviewed by an actual mom.
Hold up. Have you tried the swimwear brand Sea Level? I was searching for one-piece bathing suits -- what I feel like I’ve been doing for months now -- when I came across a few suits that had just enough of the right words in the description that made me add some to my cart. Seriously Supportive One-Piece Swimsuits...
Aerie swimwear is totes popular, and while they make great swimsuits for younger folx, y'all, spoiler alert: women over 40 can rock them, too!
Aerie swimwear has become totes popular over the last few years (especially this strappy adjustable one-piece everyone loves) and while they do still make great options for the younger crowd, y'all, spoiler alert: people 40+ can also rock them! (And I don't mean in a borrowed-from-my-daughter kind of way.) Aerie Has Cute Swimsuits (Yes, Even For Women Over 40) Aerie...
I loved BECCA suits for their plunging necklines & not-too-cheeky but not-too full-coverage bottoms.So I'm trying 1 of each: a low-rise or 2, a high-rise, +...a 1-piece...for good measure.
I discovered BECCA swim a few years ago when I was trying to find a swimsuit after having Greenlea (via C-Section). I loved BECCA suits for their plunging necklines and not-too-cheeky but not-too full-coverage bottoms. They were always flattering and comfy and made me feel confident whether I was running after the kids at a pool or just nursing...
I'm comfy in my old low-rise, full-coverage bikinis, but I don't want to be stuck in a style rut. And those high-waist, cheeky bottoms? Definitely a bit scary. But...they're just swim bottoms.
Every year around this time I write about swimwear. And every year I have a hard time figuring out what I want to say because there’s the swimwear that I’m talking about and then there’s the bigger issue of body image. And that is such a huge and overwhelming issue to tackle that I never feel like I can do...
I don't want to be that mom who waves off swimming w/ her kids b/c she doesn't want to don a swimsuit, but I also want to feel good in my postpartum body.
Real Talk: I struggled with how to start this post. Yeah, I can be pithy and self-deprecating, but that didn't feel right for a postpartum swimsuit post. I also didn't want to be like "OMG I put on a (name brand) swimsuit and suddenly I learned how to love the skin I'm in" because no garment is that life-altering,...
Athleta swimsuits are amazingly well-made & at a reasonable price point for how flattering & stylish they are. Still an honest review, but I might get a bit gushy.
Hey-o...it's not quite swimsuit season, but there's nothing I love more than trying on swimsuits in February! I AM BEING SARCASTIC. But it's necessary. The people want swimsuit reviews? The people get swimsuit reviews. I've realized after quite a few years of doing this biz here that I adore Athleta swimwear. I don't need a lot of swimsuits here...
Vibrant colors, fun patterns & amazing sustainable fabric! We're excited to try Summersalt plus-size swimsuits (& a cover-up) in cool new styles. Join us!
When S told me that Summersalt sells plus-size swimwear, I knew I needed to hop on the train and give it a try. Cams has been raving about these suits for so long and just posted her try-on haul, so I was curious to see how well they work for plus-size and what they have to offer. And as...
