Buying a swimsuit can be intimidating, but rest assured that there are amazing suits out there to flatter every type of body, at any age. Your first steps are to check the manufacturer’s sizing chart and to read any available reviews, since some pieces run smaller or larger than average.
Most bathing suits are made out of nylon, plus elastane or Lycra for some stretch. A good ratio is about 80/20, respectively, otherwise the suit might not retain its shape over time. UPF nylon fabric is another thing to look for, as it provides added protection against those harmful UV rays.
Other features you may want in a swimsuit include adjustable straps, a shelf bra (for a little support) or a padded bra (for more support and shaping). Some women’s bathing suits have underwire support, but this may not be as comfortable if you plan to spend a lot of time swimming or playing beach volleyball. Many suits are sportier, and these would be more appropriate if you plan to be active.
When shopping suits for kids, be sure to find something age-appropriate that offers sun protection. For older children, fun patterns and vibrant colors are a big hit. For little ones, full coverage and UPF fabric is important to guard against sunburn.
- Women’s swimsuits are notoriously hard to shop for, so when you find one you like, order it in more than one size and keep the one that is most flattering (provided the return policy allows for this).
- Some product descriptions include recommendations for various body types.
- In general, vertical stripes, small patterns and anything that draws the eye inward are more slimming.
- Don’t forget the sunscreen, whether you’re swimming alone or plan to take little ones out for a dip.
