First thing’s first — all bodies are beach bodies. But a trip to the beach can be daunting. It’s hard not to be self-conscious when you’re wearing the smallest amount of clothing that is socially acceptable to wear in public.

However, there’s no reason for you to doubt yourself. Nowadays, women’s bathing suits are flattering for all body types. You just need to find the best one for you, and your confidence will be sky high for your next trip to the sandy shores.

1Vintage One Piece Swimsuit

This one-piece is sexy while still leaving something to the imagination. A deep cleavage revealing V cut in the front allows you to show off your assets while covering everything else. The halter-style will keep tan lines to a minimum. Available in a wide variety of colors and sizes, you’re sure to find one that suits you.

2Retro Striped High Waisted Bikini

 For years, it was almost impossible to find a flattering bikini for a curvy body. But now, with two pieces like this one from COCOSHIP, curvy girls can live out their 1950s pinup girl fantasy. This suit is adorable yet sultry, and the high-cut bottoms cover just enough while the top allows you to show some skin.

3Floral Print Lace Bathing Suit

If you want to show off some extra skin during your summer fun this season, this suit is for you. The top offers enough support for both the busty and not-so-busty, yet still allows you to show off the bronzed goddess you are (or will be). And it comes in several colors.

4Retro Polka High Waisted Bikini

If you’re looking to dip your toe into the bikini world, a suit like this one from CHERRY CAT could be perfect for you. This suit offers a large amount of support and a good amount of coverage, yet it is still sexy and attractive. Multiple colors suit your preference, or you can buy all three.

5Striped Boyleg Monokini

There used to be an assumption that full coverage suits were not appealing. But this suit from Ekouaer proves that wrong. This sailor-themed one-piece suit covers a good amount but is still very cute and attractive. You can rock a glam look but won’t worry about showing a peek of your beach bum.
