Erin’s Swimsuit [all other suits are linked below!]

Shopping swimsuits (especially online) can be quite the challenge: enter the LIY Swimsuit favs! Think of this as your guidebook for the best swimsuits on the internet. We have sifted through the “no support, ride up, and just plain NO swimsuits” to bring you the best of the best (that we have tried so far!). Get those suitcases ready for vacay and blow up the pool floats – these are suits to actually get excited about!

Got warm weather on the brain? Me too girl, meeeeee too. Check out these blog post for more fun in the sun favorites! ☀️👇

Swimsuit [size up one, wearing in 6]

I know I like a swimsuit when I’m willing to buy it twice — shopping for a swimsuit that can support a large chest [36DD] that still feels a little sexy and youthful, can be tricky. I love this Summersalt suit as it does both! It is a little cheeky and does have a plunging neckline, however, the midsection area has Summersalt’s signature compression which helps my midsection feel a little more confident!

Aerie Ribbed One Shoulder One Piece [size up if in between]

Aerie Crinkle Scoop One Piece [size up if in between] under $50

Jen’s Athleta Top / Athleta Bottoms [5’7″]

Athleta Top [true to size, wearing M] // Athleta Bottoms [true to size, wearing M]

My go-to for comfort and longevity is Athleta. It’s a sweet price for what you get in the long run. I love this style of top and bottoms and have many prints in them. They are great to mix and match as well!

Claire’s Billabong Suit [5’5″]

One Piece Suit [TTS, wearing large]

Three trends I’m loving this season: the color pink (it’s everywhere right now!), ribbed material, and underwire details. This suit checks all the boxes! I love the underwire for added support + the adjustable straps. Size up if in between, wearing in size large here. Beware; it is slightly on the cheeky side!

Lisa’s J.Crew Swimsuit [5’3″]

Swimsuit [true to size]

I love this bandeau swimsuit that is offered by J.Crew. I have had my eye on this piece for a few seasons, and it does not disappoint! The high quality fabric covers beautifully, and the ruching on the front is very forgiving and so very comfortable. It comes with a detachable straps that goes around your neck for more support if needed. Full back coverage as well and does not slip or creep while walking. This suit is very comfortable and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. I cannot wait to sit poolside in this gorgeous suit!💛

Heather’s Long Torso Summersalt Swimsuit [6′]

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing 6T]

Heather here with a tall girl friendly one piece! Summersalt has been my go to for one piece suits and they did not disappoint with this one! I love the bright colors, low cut in the front/back and ruffle detail! I have plenty of length in the torso and feel comfy and confident in this suit. We have an adult weekend away coming up and I will be packing this one for the hot tub.

Debbie’s Bikini [5’6″]

Bikini Top [true to size] // Bikini Bottoms [had to size up 2!]

I love this 2 piece suit from Saks! I’ve been looking for a suit with that vintage look and I think this one is perfect! The fabric is very high quality and feels very secure. No slipping around here! The top runs tts. I’m 32DDD and am wearing size medium. The bottoms run small but are full coverage. Here I’m wearing medium but really feel like a large would work better for me and I normally wear a small. For reference I’m 5’6” 134 lbs and 59.

Ashley’s Free People Bikini [5’7″]

Bikini Top // Bikini Bottoms

I’m wearing a small based on their sizing recommendation and I’d say it’s tts. It doesn’t slip and slide (so far, haven’t gotten to really wear it yet…although I did some jumping jacks and squats at home to test her out) 😆 I have a small chest and this suit works for me without added underwire or padding.

Allison’s Aerie Suit [6′]

Swimsuit [size up if larger chested]

Allison here! This one piece, long torso, single strap bathing suit from Aerie is getting 7 out of 10 stars from me. I loved the look and the length of the suit (I’m 6 feet tall), but the chest (34G) portion did not give me much support at all. I ended up wearing a strapless bra with it, and I felt a little more comfortable, but it’s more of a lay in the sun suit rather than a walk around the beach suit.

Aundrea’s Nordstrom Swimsuit [5’11”]

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing a 20 and has bra like fit with under wiring]

Hey LIY! 👋🏽 I am absolutely in love with this one piece swimsuit! It gives amazing bust support, back, and bottom coverage! I love the amazing details and print! It’s perfect for my plus size figure but also available in straight sizes!
