Are you planning on getting away this winter?
Your body may not be as fit, firm and wrinkle-free as it was at 30 or even 40, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock a swimsuit at 50+ and look fabulous at the beach. Here are five swimsuits for women over 50 guaranteed to make you look and feel modern, youthful and confident.
One Shoulder One-piece Swimsuit
Let me start by saying that whatever you want to wear to the beach is your business. So, if you feel like a hot babe in a thong bikini at 40, 50 or more, please go right ahead! However, for many women, there’s a feeling that comes with getting older of wanting a more sophisticated type of swimsuit – one that provides more coverage without making you seem dowdy.
If this rings true for you, ( and it sure does for me), then stunning one-shoulder swimsuit is an excellent choice. Here’s why.
The Style: A swimsuit with this type of neckline is chic and sexy in a subtle way. When you expose one shoulder and some decolletage, you create just enough drama and mystery to make things interesting. This gorgeous swimsuit also has a keyhole cutout which makes it even more intriguing.
The Color: If you are concerned about your midlife middle, this swimsuit will help. Not only do dark colors like black and plum (a very modern combination) slim, but the way they are color blocked help whittle your waist and draw the eye upwards towards your face.
The Fit: The curving lines, the high, but not too high sides, and the built-in Miraclesuit tummy control panels do wonders to create a good-looking and good feeling fit.
All in all this one piece, one shoulder swimsuit is very sexy and sophisticated without looking like you are trying too hard.
Zip Front Swimsuit
If you are telling yourself it’s a hassle to go out and look for a bathing suit at your age, zip it! Stop the negative chatter and get yourself a beautiful zip front bathing suit like this. This modern electric blue one-piece will make you look sporty and special. It features:
Ruching: shirred fabric down the front adds texture, making the swimsuit visually interesting but more importantly, works wonders to hide tummy rolls.
Blue: This bold color is cheery and calming, and looks fabulous when you down by the ocean or walking in the sand.
The Zipper: Besides being sexy, any hardware like this is very modern and a touch edgy- no old lady here.
Pair this swimsuit with a breezy island sarong and own the beach!
Tankini With Ruffles
Many women looking for coverage prefer a tankini over a one-piece because they find them more comfortable. I own a couple, and I like the way they make me feel like I’m wearing a bikini when I’m really not. They feel a bit sportier than a one-piece. This one is a beauty. Here’s why:
The Print: Dark Florals have been trending for some time. They’re feminine without being too cutesy. They are more of a sophisticated, moody floral and many women prefer that over wildly colored Hawaiian floral swimsuit for example.
Ruffles: Ruffles are great for women who like feminine clothes plus they can also highlight and camouflage. For example, if you have a small bust, ruffles at your bust can make your bust look more substantial.
Part of creating a fabulous beach look is accessorizing your swimsuit, and that doesn’t stop after 50. Now more than ever it’s important to look pulled together so go to town playing with fun cover-ups and beach bags, sandals and jewelry. These white lacy beach pants are a great example.
Strapless is not for everyone, but on the right gal it can look very chic and allows you to get a great tan without having to worry about tan lines. This pretty tropical Tommy Bahama tankini is classic and elegant, the key to looking fabulous in a swimsuit over 50. What else is great about it?
Shirred Sides: It’s hard to see them so click through and look, but this swimsuit has small strings at the sides to scrunch up the top, more or less. So if you have been working hard on those abs and want to show them off a bit just put up one side a bit to reveal a trace of tummy and create a more sporty look.
Tummy Control Panel: You wouldn’t think a tankini has tummy control, but it does, and I don’t know any woman who doesn’t love that no matter how slim she is!
The beach is not the place to take a hot leather bag. Be sure to add touches of white to cool down your look, tassels are beachy and anything straw like a hat or a straw tote beach bag.
Ruched One-piece Swimsuit
We saw a good example of ruching in the zip front swimsuit. Here is another. Even the simplest swimsuit is enhanced by this popular detail. The other reasons This swimsuit works over 50 because of the:
V-neckline: Have you ever heard how a V or plunging neckline makes you look taller or slimmer. It opens up the chest and tricks the eye into making your neck look longer which makes you look longer and leaner.
Orange Crush: Nothing makes a tan look better than an orange swimsuit. Even if you don’t like to tan, but your coloring is on the warm or golden side, an orange swimsuit will make your skin glow and don’t we all appreciate a warmer complexion after 50, when skin tends to dull and gray.
An airy kaftan makes a great coverup with any swimsuit at 50 or any age, and you will never go wrong with gold sandals because they work with every color of swimsuit.
