Happy Friday friends!!! Well with the first official day of summer being next Sunday (which is also Father’s Day), now is when the swimsuit hunt is really on. I haven’t braved a swimsuit post yet, but today I’m sharing four swimsuits for women over 50. I’m sharing them with a sarong on because the last thing I want floating around the internet is pictures of myself in swimsuits. You know what I mean?
Three of these I ordered from Amazon, and one is a high-end suit. They are all one piece suits, and they are all good options. I’ll share a few details you might want with each one. I’m wearing a medium or size 8 in all of them. I always size up in swimsuits. In case you haven’t already heard me say, I think of my body type as being a slight pear shape. My suits are normally tankinis. That’s the style that fits me best and I’m the most comfortable in. I especially like the easy of when you have to go to the bathroom and have on separates. I decided for this post to go with one piece styles, since those are currently trending.
Give me all the ruffles! Seriously, I do love a good ruffle. They are sweet and feminine. I loved this suit…the only problem was it was a little too “cheeky” for me. If you have a smaller backside, this would be a very viable option. It’s well made, and the deep “V” is very figure flattering and slightly sexy, so it checks all the boxes. It comes in a wide variety of colors and prints, and I think at the beach you could wear it with jean shorts and a kimono right out to dinner.
This colorblock suit is another good one. I’ve been looking at it for a while. It comes in a lot of color options and prints too. It has removable pads, but I don’t know why you’d take them out. The coverage on the backside is pretty good. This suit seems to run a little big, but I’d be afraid to size down because I think the bottom would be too scant for me.
I obviously tend to gravitate towards black suits. They are universally flattering in my humble opinion. This one also seems to run just a little big, but the coverage on the backside is pretty good. There is a clear mesh between the stripes, and I think this suit is very classy looking.
Okay, this suit is a prime example of you get what you pay for. This suit is from Miracle Suit, so it’s definitely pricey, but they are know for making you look 10 lbs lighter in 10 seconds. Mission accomplished. HA! This suit is so well made. The fabric is phenomenal, and it completely covers the bottom. The way Miracle Suit suits are made is 100% quality. (I have another suit I’m going to share in a post of it’s own.) The front cross over is secured and there is no danger of any “malfunction”, and it has adjustable straps in the back. I will warn you, getting into one of these suits might count as your workout for the day. LOL
The sarong I’m wearing comes in a lot of colors and a few different lengths/styles. It’s very lightweight and perfect for throwing on over a swimsuit to go from your hotel room/condo to the pool or beach. I like to have a cute cover up for modesty when we vacation. I’m going to be sharing some more cover up ideas in a future post.
SHOPS THESE FOUR SWIMSUITS FOR WOMEN OVER 50
Two of my favorite swimsuit retailers are SOMA and TARGET. I have purchased most of my suits from these two, but NORDSTROM, MACY’S and DILLARD’S have good swim departments as well. Macy’s is currently having their ‘Friends and Family’ sale and swimsuits are 30% off.
What’s your preference as far as style goes in swimwear? Are you a one piece, tankini or bikini lover?
SOMA is where all of my bras are from and they are having a ONE DAY SALE. All bras are 3 for $99. The Enbliss Bralette is my current favorite style. I wear one everyday and have had so many people buy them and send me messages about how much they love them.
Tomorrow Kent and I are headed to Nashville. We closed on our new townhouse Tuesday, so I’m eager to get there and start working on it. We are having the interior repainted and replacing all the flooring. If you are new here, we’ve recently purchased a place where our daughter will live full time while finishing PA school, and I’m going to start spending a lot of time there until Kent is ready to retire in a few years. Make sure you’re following along on Instagram because I’m planning to share the process there. I’ll be shopping for furniture and accessories, so this will be fun.
