Stylish Swimsuit Ensembles to Flatter Your Body Type!

Discover 5 flattering swimsuit ensembles to suit your body type and budget.

This is it, ladies! Summer parties are on the sunny horizon—many of them being hosted poolside or at the beach. Are you ready to join in the fun in your most stylish swimsuit ensemble? Or (gasp!) you don’t have one? Here we are to the rescue with 5 modern outfits! We’ve assembled basic elements you can put together into really chic and flattering outfits that are budget-friendly for body types from petite to plus, from svelte to curvaceous. And all the featured items are available from our fabulous affiliates, so you’ll be summer party ready in no time!


Our tips: A lean body shape looks great in an all-white swimsuit! Ruffles add a nice softening touch and provide the illusion of body curves and more fullness at the bustline. Other feminine accents come via dainty floral sandals and a crocheted tote—also in pristine white. Then, the surprise of hot pink pieces: a sun visor, a sarong skirt, and mirror-lens sunglasses!

Our tips: A bit self-conscious of your generous curves? We suggest a high-necked swimsuit with a v-shaped striped pattern to give the illusion of body length and create a slimming effect. Sticking with a black-and-white color scheme keeps the overall look more sleek and understated—from a matching striped beach bag, to a sun hat with a bow and a flowy black cover-up. Then, add pops of fun red with a pair of thong sandals and retro cat’s eye sunglasses!

Our tips: Don’t miss out on the summer fun just because you have a plus-size build! A classic (and slimming) black swimsuit is a great go-to—especially one that combines a well-supported top with the coverage of a swim skirt. Pair it with a wide-brimmed straw hat and a shirt-style cover-up for easy wear. Then, for the rest of the ensemble, pick a color base to unify the look. Our choice was denim blue—in the cool sunglasses, the espadrille wedge sandals, and the crochet tote.

Our tips: Take advantage of a small body frame to go for a girly summer look! The inspiration here is pastel florals—starting with a flattering strapless swimsuit, complemented by a boho-inspired mini dress, a cute pair of sunglasses and matching floral flip-flops. Then, complete the look with a jaunty peach-colored fedora and a straw beach bag.
