As women, we can all agree that shopping for swimsuits is our least favorite activity. We want a suit that’s in style, flatters our bodies, and doesn’t hug us in the wrong areas — is that too much to ask? Actually, it isn’t.
In fact, if you stray from the fads and stick to the classics, you’ll find yourself a timeless swimsuit that will flatter your body, no matter your shape, size, or age. Here are a few options to help you get started:
A black, lace-up one piece
If you’re looking for a swimsuit that will flatter your body at any age, start with a classic, black, lace-up one piece, such as this Mara Hoffman Lace-Up Swimsuit ($245). Black one piece swimsuits are like the LBD of swimwear — they’re slimming, flattering, and timeless. And the added lace-up detail on this one adds a nice, stylish touch.
