Are you looking forward to wearing your bathing suit or bikini again, or are you dreading it?
Finding a great bathing suit is never easy so I’m here to help and have selected some of the best bathing suits for this summer. Many of these are comfortable and flattering for women over 40 so you can be sure you step out on the beach or swimming pool in style.
What bathing suits will you wear this summer?
Are you still wearing bikinis or do you prefer bathing suits?
My preference is still for a bikini as I find them more comfortable and on my body still more flattering. However, when I go snorkelling or do some some serious swimming I wear a rash guard, which is why I have included some in this list too. I’m not interested in getting a tan and always protect my skin with high SPF sunscreen. Here is why I feel you too should embrace your beautiful pale skin!
Whatever your preference, you may find something you like in my selection of bathing suits, bikinis and rash guards.
I really like the draped bathing suits from Miraclesuit, which I believe are perfect for women over 40. Their bathing suits strengthen the tummy area and the drapes hide the bulges so you will look streamlined and beautiful.
I also like bathing suits and bikinis with a retro vibe. This style covers up more of the body but is sexy and stylish.
Another brand that makes fun swimwear with especially great rash guards is Tommy Bahama.
Land’s End also has a good selection of swimwear in many sizes.
I am a big fan of rash guards. I love how they protect my skin and many are very sexy too. I always wear them when I do some serious swimming or go on a snorkelling tip or white water rafting.
I still love bikinis and when I’m not snorkelling or spend a lot of time in the water, that is what I will wear. I usually opt for ones that have good coverage of the breasts and have a higher brief. I also like briefs that have small pipes, so I don’t have to constantly keep up my bikini line!
