swimsuits on real people (editors and readers alike)

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...
Found: 10 sexy plus-size swimsuits that are trendy (& hold the bum bum in) + give va-va-voom vibes. From 1-piece bathing suits w/ tummy control to classic black & monokinis. We're on it.
It's currently snowing buckets here in Colorado. While I'm happy to have our sixth snow day of the year, I'm most definitely dreaming of summer, and wishing I could soak up the rays and play in the waves on a beach somewhere. Summer is my favorite time of the year. I am a total sun child and love to...
J.Crew swimwear is well-made & flattering — we are here for it. We tried 7 bathing suits & bikinis — sexy, cheeky, solid & patterned. Check out our review.
J.Crew suits have been on rotation for me since high school. They've just always offered the best colors around, even back in the day when colors were weird and not as awesome as they are now. Haha...#the90s. I used to peruse their catalogs partly just for the amazing color names. But besides some fab shades, their swimsuits have always...
Finiding postpartum swimwear is HARD. We try all the mom swimsuits - tankinis, control swimwear, ruched bathing suits, high-waist bikinis...See what works.
This is a more recent play on Shana's postpartum swimwear post originally published in 2011 and refreshed by me in 2017. While some of the swimsuits I tried on are sold out, you can find even better picks specific to each category. Updated for 2021. Looking for flattering postpartum clothes and swimwear is not easy at all. I'd never been...
