Sexy Swimsuits Over 40…? Yes, I Found THE BEST!

These are SO Flattering!

Whether you’re sitting by your pool, headed to the beach, lounging at the lake, or just laying out in your backyard pretending you’re somewhere tropical, I have the sexiest and most flattering swimsuits for you! I know that during this time of uncertainty, it’s hard to imagine enjoying the sun on a beach somewhere. But when we do get back to normal (and we will), you’ll have these swimsuits at the ready!

#1 | Strappy One Piece

This one-piece is super flattering AND sexy! I love the straps all the way down the front and back. You would think that it feels less secure…but the fit and fabric are so nice that you feel completely sucked in and safe! I also love the gold grommet details on the front. It makes the suit look even more luxe. This one-piece is sold out in brown but it’s still available in black! There are a few other color and size options here.

#2 | Ruffled Two Piece

This gorgeous swimsuit by Johanna Ortiz has very limited sizing, but you can find other standouts by the designer here and here. A ruffle top works so well for me because it really builds up my narrow shoulders and in contrast makes my waistline look smaller… not to mention the drama!! The suit also comes in a fun striped pattern (top and bottom). Just be careful with the placement of stripes…find out more about that strategic design detail in this video.

#3 | Ruffle One Piece

This one-piece swimsuit is also by Johanna Ortiz. As you can see, I’m sticking with the ruffles because they WORK on me! This swimsuit is even more waist-defining because of the braided detail. The braided waistband highlights the thinnest part of my torso while the ruffles on top build the shoulders. It’s such a pretty and flattering one piece! It’s sold out in black but also comes in a beautiful brown color!

#4 | Blue Becca One Piece

This one-piece is by Becca, one of my favorite swimsuit brands. They make beautiful suits that are so flattering and really make you feel sucked in and confident! This exact suit is sold out in the blue but it is available in navy and black!

#5 | Halter Neck One Piece

I LOVE this beautiful retro, one-piece, halter-neck swimsuit by Norma Kamali! It looks like a throw-back to the ’50s and ’60s. I feel so chic and sexy in this swimsuit and the allover ruching makes it super flattering. I love the sexy deep v and mesh overlay. This is a standout swimsuit! It makes you look AND feel good. It’s no longer available in this ivory color but it comes in black and white!

Bikinis over 40 featuring high waist ruched black Becca bikini bottom full coverage paired with ruffle black bandeau Trina Turk top on fashion over 40 blogger Erin Busbee

#6 | Black Ruffle Two Piece w/ High Waist Bottoms

First I want to talk about these bottoms…they’re by Becca and I’ve had them for years. They have ruching that’s so flattering and I love that they’re high-waisted! This bandeau-style bikini top by Trina Turk is so cute and another piece I’ve had for a few years. I love the ruffle and think this is a great top to have in your swimsuit wardrobe to pull out and mix and match with other bottoms!

#7 | Amazon Bikini

Next…the famous $26 Amazon swimsuit! I did an entire post on this swimsuit! When I ordered it, I thought it wouldn’t be flattering or cute at all…but it is! I now have it in three colors. You can read my full review of this magical Amazon bikini here.

#8 | Vitamin A Bikini

This Vitamin A swimsuit is one I took on our road trips to Texas and Arizona. It’s SO sexy!  Vitamin A is a go-to brand that I check for sexier bikini options.  These bottoms are full coverage but the rings on the hips make it feel much sexier. The top also has great coverage… or great coverage for a triangle top.

#9 | Vix Swimsuit

If you’re looking for EXTRA sexy swimsuits, Vix swimsuits are the best brand to check! This exact bikini only has a few sizes left but the brand has a ton of great options you can shop here. When I’m shopping for a bikini, I look for interesting details like the gold bar in the middle. I also love bold colors and prints.

#10 | Pink Bikini

This is the perfect brand to try out of if you need some basic bikini essentials! I got this cute pink bikini for my recent trip to Arizona. The color is gorgeous, I love that the top has sleeves (extra coverage from the sun is always a plus!), and the high waist is great! These bottoms are even more flattering because of the twist detail in the front! What do you all think of the French cut bottoms? I didn’t think I would be into it, but I love the way it makes your legs look longer!

one-piece swimsuit in tropical print with plunging neckline by La Blanca, on a blonde woman standing on the lava rock in Hawaii

#11 | Tropical Print Swimsuit

This tropical print swimsuit by La Blanca is the perfect mix of whimsy and sophistication. The print is perfect for a beach getaway like Hawaii. You can wear it as a deep v, plunging suit (like I am above), or cross the straps and wear as a halter neck suit. You all know how much I love a multi-functional piece! The band under the bust helps give you shape and define your waist. La Blanca is an AWESOME brand to check for sexy suits over 40 (that cover your parts).

#12 | Sheer One Piece

This is one of my favorites because it’s SO glam! It’s a gorgeous sheer one-piece by OYE.  This line is pricey, but I think they are worth the investment. About the see-through factor…I think this depends on what you have going on downstairs. If you are a full, 70’s-style kind of girl, you may have some issues with the suit being see-through. Otherwise, I think you’ll be just fine. 😉 This exact swimsuit is sold out so I linked a similar option in black!

Resort Edit featuring solid and striped swimsuits

#13 | Striped Belted Swimsuit

The is an older suit by Solid & Striped, and I absolutely love it! The scoop neckline adds length and can help to minimize a bigger bust. It also pulls double duty, and enhances a smaller bust because it scoops so low (showing a little cleavage). But, it’s really the belt that makes the suit! I felt like a Bond girl wearing this bad boy on the beach… minus my sneakers. I’m pretty sure no Bond girl would wear white sneaks. I’m a Bond ‘mom’ girl.. 😉

The exact suit is sold out but they have some other gorgeous belted one-pieces here.
