11 Stylish Swimsuits & Beachwear You'll Feel Beautiful In

Beach season is officially here, and that means it's time to start finding some new swimsuits that make us feel beautiful! In a post-pandemic world, swimsuit shopping is proving to be a little trickier than normal (trying bikinis on is key for finding the perfect fit!!), but we’ll do our darnedest to pick something trendy and comfy out on The Internets, thank-you-very-much. Blessedly, the SwearBy community has already rounded up a stash of cute swimsuits and other beachwear, perfect for all shapes and sizes.

ModCloth Bathing Beauty One-Piece Swimsuit

This retro-inspired bathing suit is gorgeous and flirty. It comes in several colors and patterns, keeps everything where it should be, and is particularly great for new mom bellies. I’m able to swim play all day at the beach and never worry about anything shifting or popping out!”—Jody B

Malia Mills Swimwear

“I love my Malia Mills Swimwear. I have been a loyal customer of the brand for over a decade now and I can honestly say that the quality and fit are the best! I have a photo of me in a bikini holding my daughter who was about one year old at the time, she is now 16 and I can’t get her to give the suit back! and it looks brand new and stunning on her.

Also, Malia herself is a badass woman who is on a mission to help provide skills and work opportunities for other women so it feels really good to support and represent.”—Cindy Krupp

Bikyni The Halter Bikini Top

I’m a simple swimsuit gal and since I’m writing this as the temperature is about to hit the low 20s, I am definitely dreaming about bathing suit weather (even if my post-holiday midsection is not). Like many of you, I’m different sized top and bottom and for years my only option was Malia Mills (whom I loved, but whom my wallet did not).

While Bikyni will not, I repeat not, help you if you are plus-sized (and that’s something they should definitely consider changing), I have found their pieces to be long-wearing, flattering, and budget-friendly. I own both the halter and triangle tops (and I think I prefer the halter), and I think every one of the bottoms except the cheeky hipster (because my cheeks like the coverage). And I’m an active bathing suit-wearer, so these hold up to the activity, not just lounging.”—Yelena Dasher

Kitty and Vibe Scoop Top

You can wear this top not only for swimwear but also as a go-to yoga get-up, or a bra to lounge in on the couch :)”—Cameron Armstrong

Kitty and Vibe High Waisted Bikini Bottoms

They are seamless so they do not pinch your skin and they are reversible! Solid black can go with any of your bathing suit tops.”—Cameron Armstrong

Antibes Top in Indigo

“When looking for swimwear, my number one priority is style, but a very close second is fit and comfort. That’s what I love about Marysia’s swimsuits — they’re chic and comfortable. Thanks to the brand’s signature scalloped edge and Italian fabric, it almost feels like you’re not wearing anything at all, but you also don’t have to worry about it slipping off in the middle of a swim. Also, how beautiful is this shade?” — Sara Tan

Zaful Sunflower Criss-Cross Bikini

My brand of Poska caftans wouldn’t be complete without a cute suit underneath! I love this brand for their affordable prices and sunny prints.”—Sarah Fathy

Cynthia Rowley Garden Floral High Tide Wetsuit

“All of our wetsuits are SPF 50 and they’re great for surfing or even just swimming in a chilly pool. So no matter what I’m doing or where I’m going, I always bring at least one along with me.” — Cynthia Rowley 

Isabelle Feliu Bosque Cover-Up Jumpsuit

“This cover-up checks all of the boxes for me; it is cute, comfy, and is multi-functional. I love that I can throw it over my suit or dress it up for dinner out. This jumpsuit is the first thing going in my bag for my next vacation!” —Karla Lint

Zimmerman One Piece Bathing Suit

“I love Zimmerman’s one-pieces. They cover and flatter without feeling dowdy, providing security with style. The adjustable straps ensure a perfect fit.” — Jessica Schell 

ACACIA X REVOLVE Kapaa Romper in Bone

“Looking for something comfortable, cute, and lightweight to throw over your swimsuit? This romper from ACACIA x Revolve is perfect for a day at the beach or an afternoon by the pool. You could even dress it up with some strappy sandals should your beach day turn into a beachside dinner.” — Sara Tan
