Get excited ladies because swimsuit season has arrived! Yes, that’s right, for once you may finally be able to enjoy the summer sun in a suit that will show off all the right curves and still have you looking appropriate for your age. To be quite frank, there comes a time when our own clothing choices get dated and so do our swimsuits!
Save yourself the time and effort put in that will warrant an in-store meltdown in front of mirrors, bad lighting and salespeople that will tell you that you look great in anything. Here is a list of swimsuits that should help weed out looking like you are trying to be younger than you are or the direct opposite – looking like you are a lot older than you feel.
Move over because this time in your life is about to get heated – literally! In your 20’s women tend to be a little more daring with good reason, they have the assets so why not flaunt them right? It is a time in a woman’s life that screams trend alert and still wants to project being a woman. Opt for bold colours, Brazilian cut bottoms, ruffles, fun patterns and one-pieces with a lot of cutouts. If you are looking to show the world that you are a confident woman then these swimsuit ideas are for you.

If you are in your 30’s
Most of the Kardashian clan is in their 30’s now and they somehow manage to keep themselves looking chic and sumer-hot while lounging pool side so why can’t you? Opt for swimsuits that show off your curves but leave a little to the imagination too. Simple one pieces with some lacing detail or off the shoulder bikini tops paired with high waisted bottoms for a retro- but still young and fresh vibe. Ditch the frills in your thirties, think cleaner lines and more sophisticated on edge type pieces.

This is a time in your life when all things sort of change, mostly for the better – promise! With that said you may get a little more adventurous but you are still most likely going to play it safer on the beach. The ‘mom’ suit one piece or tankini has come a long way since previous times. Seems the newest forms of mature bathing suits are actually more of staple swimwear that adds both class and functionality – we all know a little support goes a long way right? Think mini dresses or high waisted retro with a twist of sexy. Off the shoulder pieces are really stylish and will provide the illusion of youth without baring those awful tan lines.
