When it comes to swimwear everyone should wear that makes them feel happy, comfortable, and confident in their own skin. But let’s face it, shopping for swimsuits can feel a little daunting, and swimwear trends sometimes aren’t designed for the average body in mind.

So in this post, I’ve round up some of the cutest trends in swimwear from this season that also happen look flattering on many different body types, including bikini, one pieces and more modest suits as well!

Swimwear Trend #1 – High Cut & High Waisted Bottoms

High waisted denim is known for its leg lengthening ability. So it’s no surprise that high waisted & high cut bikini bottoms is a swimwear trend that can make a lot of different body types look thinner by visually lengthening your legs and adds shape to your figure.

I love the retro feels it give and this is a style I personally love myself! Here are a few of my favourite picks for high waisted bottoms.

Swimwear Trend #2 – One Piece Suits

Not only are onepiece swimsuits extremely flattering on practically every body type, but they also look super glamorous in those poolside selfies.

I’ve been loving this more modest silhouette, plus it’s a versatile pieces can also be worn as a cute top when layered under your favourite skirts and pants.

Style tip: for an additional waist defining shape, go for a belted or tie style!

Swimswear Trend #3 – Underwire

Another throwback trend that’s making a splash this season incorporating underwire into swimwear.

Underwire been a huge trend this season and a flattering one too! It helps to support the female form and adds that extra lift which we could use sometimes!

Underwire styles in both bikinis and once pieces have been very popular this season. So you can sport this trend in which ever style suits you best!

Swimwear Trend #4 – Ruffles

Swimwear trends that are actually flattering. Ruffles are a huge trend you're seeing everywhere on blouses, dresses and now swimwear too!

Ruffles are a trend seem to be everywhere in fashion lately, from blouses to dresses and right down to swimwear.

Not only are ruffles on cute on practically everyone, they can also distract the eye away from areas that you don’t want to highlight.

Swimwear Trend #5 –  Multitasking Swimwear

Swimwear isn’t just for poolside anymore. One of the trends for this summer is swimwear that you can wear even if you’re not at the beach or poolside.

It can be as simple as midi skirt with a bikini top with a skirt or layering a sheer top over a once piece. This is a versatile trend that captures an instant “on holiday” vibe.

    I love a good high leg bikini! I feel like it covers my stomach area well as well which is where I am typically most self-conscious about!

      I couldn’t agree more! I hope the trend sticks around for awhile, because low rises were so unflattering on me!
