Ultimate Flattering Swimwear Guide

August 1, 2018 - 33 Comments

Amee Song, fashion blogger of Song of Style, asks her team what style of swimsuit they wear based on their body type and what they like.It’s inevitable that as soon as summer is here, then it’s swimsuit season. Sometimes it’s difficult to find a flattering, comfortable swimsuit. So, I asked my team to share what swimsuits they find comfy and the most flattering for their body type. Also, I wanted to share what I wear and why. Here are some tips on what we all wear and what works best for Team SOS. Aimee:
Body Type: Slim
Preferred Style: One Piece, High Waisted Bottoms
Why: If you’ve seen my Instagram then you know I like high-waisted bikinis and one pieces. Why? Well, I think they’re super flattering especially for my body type. They’re also quite forgiving since you guys know how much I love to eat (especially my coconut chocolate balls). Also, they’re the most comfortable for me and high waisted bottoms are flattering for my butt. A lot of bottoms give granny butts, but I like when my cheeks show a little because I have a smaller butt.
My Picks: 
Solid and Striped Polka Dot One Piece (I recently got this in an unboxing), Frankie’s Bikini One Piece Swimsuit, Midsommar Swim Gingham Bikini

Sophia:

Preferred Style: Cheeky
Why: Bandeau-style bikini tops and high-rise bikini bottoms are my go-to. Since I am more flat-chested, I like to draw attention to the lower half of my body. A bandeau-style bikini top is great because it feels like a crop top. I feel the most comfortable when it’s paired with a cheeky bottom. Also, I like to wear a button down as a cover up over my bikini.
My Picks: Solid and Striped Shirt Swimsuit (bikini version here), Frankie’s Bikinis Alana Bikini, Midsommar Swim High Waisted Bikini Bottoms

Laura:
Amee Song, fashion blogger of Song of Style, asks her team what style of swimsuit they wear based on their body type and what they like.Body Type: Slim
Preferred Style: Any
Why: I’m pretty comfortable with my body. Granted it took me awhile to accept the skin I’m in, but I did. With that being said, I still have my moments. I like to leave more to the imagination, so I’m all about the fabric being comfortable and my more intimate areas to be FULLY covered. This can be done in a one piece, high waisted bottoms, and even a bikini.
My Picks: Solid and Striped x Re/done Black One Piece (bikini version here), Frankie’s Bikinis Greer Bikini, Midsommar Swim Gingham Swimsuit

Kathleen:
Amee Song, fashion blogger of Song of Style, asks her team what style of swimsuit they wear based on their body type and what they like.Body Type: Petite, Bigger Chest
Preferred Style: One Pieces and Bikinis
Why: I’m not a fan of high waisted bikinis because they make me look even shorter than I am. I think a low back one piece that shows off your sides is a little understated sexy. Plus, one pieces make me look taller. I like bikinis too just because I don’t think you can’t go wrong with a classic silhouette.
My Picks: Solid and Striped Black Zip One Piece, Frankie’s Bikini Buckle Bikini, Midsommar Swim Ruffle Bikini
