It can be incredibly frustrating finding a swimsuit that you feel comfortable in and it doesn’t seem to get easier with age. It’s currently snowing at my house right now so what better time to churn out an exhaustive swimsuit post! I wanted to put together a whole round up of swimsuits that will suit the needs of women over 50. After trying on a BUNCH of swimsuits- there was a lot of trial and error. After asking on my Facebook page the main concerns were that the suits provide coverage, be slimming and be supportive all without being dowdy! I didn’t include many 2 pieces here but high waist bikinis are all the rage and they can be very forgiving as well, so I’ll add a link here for those if you are interested. Also from Facebook, I was reminded about board shorts! These board shorts are awesome- my daughter and I both own several pair. I hope that you like this post and that you can find a great swimsuit that makes you feel amazing this year!

If you haven’t looked at Swimsuits for All, do it now. They have an amazing collection of thoughtfully constructed swimwear made to be flattering on all body types. There are lots of suits on sale right now as well. With features like no bounce bust support, elastic that stays put and control mesh, this is my first stop when I need a quality suit. The Ashley Graham Collection is stunning.
The Miraclesuit Brand is on the pricier side but it does what it says it will do. If you are looking for a suit that will be slimming as well as hold everything in place, the Miraclesuit is for you. Pay close attention to the sizing and you will be really happy with one of these suits. The quality is excellent and they will last you a long time with proper care. Miraclesuits also come in Plus sizes. These suits pay off big in the confidence department!
Summersalt has garnered a cult following by designing wildly flattering suits that provide coverage and amazing fit for all body types. The Sidestroke has been Called the “Unicorn of Swimsuits”. It offers superior compression and won top honors from Elle Magazine. These are quality suits that are really flattering with lots of great, on trend color ways. A few of the Fan favorites from Summersalt are below.
Believe it or not Amazon has a lot to offer when it comes to swimsuits for women over 50! I was pleasantly surprised to find a few suits that meet the demands for coverage and support. As with all things on Amazon, pay attention to the reviews when it comes to sizing and fit. These suits here come in tons of colors and patterns so if you find a design that you love, you can easily get it in several other colors or patterns! The styles below all have great coverage and good bust support. These designs are slimming and while the quality is good for the price, it doesn’t compare to the ones above. If you were going to be wearing these all summer long, they’d probably only last the one year. But still- they are under $30. I have all 3 of these and I love them.
More From Amazon
If you have a smaller bust, this style is super flattering. They still have good coverage and come in tons of colors and patterns. Again for under $30 these are great to have in your swimsuit arsenal as well. These pair so well with a sarong or flowy lounge pants for an effortless vacation or poolside look.
Everything But Water
The Everything But Water site has great search functions so that you can narrow down by terms like “one piece”, “fuller bust”, “full coverage”, “tummy control”, etc. With features like thicker straps that actually stay up and slimming, tummy control this site is one of my “go-to’s” when shopping for swimsuits.
Athleta has some sporty one piece swimsuits that provide good coverage and medium support. They also offer a full line of bra cup sized swimsuits. The quality of their suits is very good and they’re made to last as well as to stand up to the active lifestyle.
The brand Freya sells bra cup sized swimsuits that are on trend. These swimsuits are very supportive and there are a wide range of styles to choose from. If you are larger than a DD cup you know how hard it can be to find a swimsuit that will fit! Freya answers the call of the bustier gals!
