The Mom Edit’s 2023 Swim Guide has JUST been updated!
After weeks of scouring the internet, searching pages and pages of swimsuits, and referencing our own try-ons and reviews, we’ve come up with one pretty epic swim guide. True to form, we’ve taken the hard work out of bathing-suit shopping for you. Our 2023 swim guide has the best swimsuits out there, and they all come with our stamp of approval. Think: highly edited, freshly updated, and CUTE.
So, if you happen to be in the market for something new yet budget-friendly…we’d suggest this chic, strapless one-piece from aerie. Or if you’re just like, “Hey, give me the most gorgeous swimsuit you’ve got…” This Farm Rio suit will do the trick, and it’s a total conversation starter.
And of course, we can’t forget our ultimate reader fave: the gorgeous (and comfortable!) black one-piece that Scotti reaches for year after year (featured above).
Our Top Picks In 1-Piece Swimsuits: A Peek At Our 2023 Swimwear Guide
So, what’s new for swimsuits in 2023? Bright swimwear is the star of our massive search. The bolder the better, so try something like this red one-piece from Boden to really make a statement. In a similar vein, bathing suits in tropical prints have also made a huge splash. This one is incredibly sexy (and a bit daring, even?). We love it.
If you’re more into earth tones, that’s also a thing for 2023. And the most unexpected (yet welcomed) trend? Brown swimsuits. Deep chocolatey browns, tans and mauves, if we’re getting specific here.
Ohhhh, and we are.
As a reminder, find the entire Swim Guide here. But we’ll leave some of our very favorites from each category below.
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20
1. Striped Swimsuits
Not only does this J.Crew swimsuit dominate the Striped Bathing Suits category, but it’s also our pick for best Mom Swimsuit. It’s delightfully cute, full-coverage and stays PUT. Shana gets into a little more detail about it, here.
2. Black Swimsuits Under $100
This strapless bathing suit is incredibly chic for its price point. Bravo, aerie.
3. White-Hot Swimsuits
BECCA swim tops our list year after year (and for good reason). These suits are comfortable, flattering and have been a favorite of new moms, too. (Check out the gorgeous back on this plunge one-piece swimsuit.)
4. Swimsuits From Black-Owned Businesses
That bright pink swimsuit is everything. For even more Black-owned business faves, hop on over to the guide.
5. Geometric Print Swimsuits
Cupshe Swim is another shockingly good team favorite. Not only is this geometric print a fun one to look at, but it works especially well for postpartum mamas too. The pattern and sharp lines help create a complementary fit.
6. Colorblock Swimsuits
We’re all about the Mermaid Vibes this summer. And the cherry on top? Colorblocked swimsuits like this one tend to work wonders for camouflaging a softer stomach.
7. Pretty Floral Swimsuits
Classic & pretty. Of course, Farm Rio is nailing this swimsuit (and it has underwire!).
8. Pastel Swimsuits
Keep your pastels in rotation beyond springtime. This one-piece bathing suit by Gap is juuust sexy enough.
9. Playful Print Swimsuits
S likes to call these “conversation prints.” Who doesn’t like wearable art in the form of a cute swimsuit?
10. Brown Swimsuits
Deep chocolatey browns, tans and mauves are perfectly on-trend for swimwear this season.
11. Check, Plaid or Gingham Swimsuits
Whether it’s something checked, plaid or gingham, this summery print feels very Girl Next Door. (And it always looks great with cutoffs.)
12. Tropical Print Swimsuits
Mama’s going on vacay…and she’s wearing this Agua Bendita one-piece.
13. Earth-Tone Swimsuits
Nothing says summer quite like some warm, earthy colors. J.Crew has our favorite selection.
14. Black Swimsuits Over $100
A Scotti fan favorite. She breaks out this V-neck swimsuit from Anthro year after year. It’s THAT good.
15. Plus-Size Swimsuits
This gorgeous one-shoulder bathing suit by ELOQUII goes up to a size 28W. It’s a stunner, no doubt.
16. Postpartum Swimsuits
Amy was the first of our crew to try Sea Level Swim and has deemed this the perfect suit for active and nursing moms. (Oh, P.S. The zipper magically stays put.)
17. Moody Blue Swimsuits
Our curation of moody blue swimsuits — like this halter from Amazon — is the perfect dose of sultry.
18. Dark Floral Swimsuits
Does Agua Bendita ever disappoint? Nope. This dark floral print feels fresh & unexpected for a swimsuit.
19. Bold & Bright Swimsuits
Laura’s a big fan of Boden swimwear (check out her recent try-on here). This bright bathing suit in particular has great support, comes in bra sizes, and has adjustable straps — a great choice.
20. Jewel-Tone Swimsuits
Half the beauty of J.Crew swim = all the gorgeous colors. (The other half is their great fit.) Hop on the jeweled-tone trend with one of our most-loved swimsuits of all time. You can’t go wrong.
Happy swim shopping!
