Just because you are in your 40’s or 50’s and you happen to be in great shape, doesn’t mean you want to wear an itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, yellow polka dot bikini to the beach. On the other hand, who wants to settle for a boring old bathing suit with zero sex appeal that makes you look frumpy?
If you like to look sexy in your swimwear, but are trying to find a happy medium, here are 6 sexy bathing suits to make you look sizzling in the sun.
1. One Shoulder Stunner
Accessorize with a beachy straw tote and an alluring sheer wrap trimmed in playful pompoms. Big black sunglasses will have beach-goers wondering if you really are a celebrity.
2. Floral Fantasy
Most floral swimsuits have exotic tropical blooms, so it’s really unique to see a swimsuit inspired by an English garden. This romantic one-piece with the feminine sweetheart neckline is perfect for the gal who wants to look pretty at the beach.
All you need to complete the look is a soft blush coverup with eyelet embroidery, a crisp white straw bag and girly slip-on sandals with sweet bows.
3. Sexy Sailor
Anchor yourself at the beach this summer in this sporty, nautical tankini. Tankinis are super popular because they have a bikini vibe, but give you the tummy coverage you are looking for. This one looks super chic with a crisp, button-up shirt, a straw tote, and navy sandals.
4. Flirty Fringe
An easy way to send a playful vibe is to wear a swimsuit that has some fringe. Fringe, strategically placed around this alluring V-neckline, makes you look twice. When you move, it moves, making fringe the perfect accent when you want to highlight your feminine figure.
The fringe also helps give this bathing suit a laid-back, hippie vibe. Even the burnt orange color feels like a throwback to the ’70s. The natural cream poncho, a straw tote, and earthy sandals help to play up that sexy, natural, carefree feeling. This would be a fabulous swimsuit to wear anywhere hot but would look especially cute someplace like Mexico or California where it would be right at home.
5. Exotic Wrap
Over the last few years we’ve seen a lot of wrap dresses, and bandage dresses that crisscross the body, so it’s no surprise this trend is now showing up in swimwear. The criss-cross halter neckline on this white one-piece is a very classic swimwear silhouette that brings a lot of sexy glamour to the wearer. This is a gorgeous bathing suit because it is so simple, elegant, and alluring.
A gorgeous wrap sarong is a lovely way to mirror the wrap neckline and add a touch of tropical excitement. This ensemble has a tropical island feel and would look fabulous anywhere, but I can see it in Hawaii or the Caribbean, even Miami. Can’t you?
6. Colorblocked Curves
Black is always a popular color for bathing suits because it magically makes you appear thinner. This chic black swimsuit goes one step further with festive color blocking that curves in at the sides and carves out a waist.
All those curvy lines at the sides and your bustline help give you a pin-up girl figure. Cute orange sandals make this swimsuit pop, and an embroidered cover-up is in sync with the subtle ethnic vibe of this global-inspired swimsuit.
