Swimsuits for Long Torsos

May 16, 2024


Team LIY

Heather’s Swimsuit [true to size, wearing 6T] // Allison’s Swimsuit [true to size] // Devon’s Swimsuit [true to size, wearing in 2LT]

I don’t know about you, but we are ready for some SUMMERTIME here at LIY! ☀️ Before we can take a dip in the pool, lake, or dip our toes in the sand we’ve got one thing to get straightened out….SWIMSUITS. Now, we’re not just talking any swimsuit friends – no, we are talking the best of the best swimsuits for long torsos! What qualifies as a long torso? Well, if we are talking numbers here technically over 20″ is considered a long torso. With the help of Devon from team LIY [5’8″] and two of our beautiful 6′ LIY Ambassadors Heather and Allison, we have gathered up our go-to picks for length and comfort in the one piece department! Let’s dive in….

p.s. shop our favorite swimsuits for any torso length here and our favorite swimsuits, all from Amazon here! 🌊

Heather [6′, size small or 4]

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing 6T]

This suit is one of my most worn from Summersalt and is full coverage! I just love the one shoulder and fun colors. My only complaint is I wish it had a little more support in the chest.

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing 6T]

I love the colors of this Summersalt suit, they scream summer! This suit is a fun one that fits great and holds me in well! This one is a bit more on the cheeky side so I tend to reach for this one on adult pool days.

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing 6T]

This Summersalt suit has good booty coverage with a low back. I’m super comfortable in this one. I will say the stitching in the chest did come out last summer, but I was able to patch it up myself. Not sure if that speaks to the quality of this suit or how often I’ve worn it!

Swimsuit [true to size]

Meet my favorite Summersalt suit, the Marina! This long torso suit has by far the most length of all my Summersalt suits I’ve tried. I always reach for this one on water sports days!

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing medium long]

I’m giving these Andie suits a go this summer! I think this one will be great for the 4th of July and they have lots of style options in this red color! If you need a lot of length in your torso I would give Andie a try! The back is fun on this one and has medium coverage.

Swimsuit [size up, wearing 8L]

This Miraclesuit is definitely a splurge, but the quality and fit is amazing! It’s a snug fit and I’m comfortable with the strapless top which has a built in underwire. It does come with straps that can be added as well. I would size up per the sizing recommendations as I’m wearing the 8L.

Swimsuit [sized up for length]

I can’t say enough good things about this Amazon suit! While it’s not labeled as long torso I sized up 1 and it is great on my 6′ frame. This is a great affordable suit for all body types. I’ll be wearing this one a lot this summer!

Swimsuit [sized up for length]

Another tall gal pal shared this Amazon suit with me 4 years ago and I still wear it! It’s super flattering on all body types and is tall girl friendly, just go up 1 size!

Swimsuit [sized up for length]

This Amazon tall girl friendly suit comes in 30 colors and I just love it! If you’re tall size up 1 for added length and it has adjustable straps. I love the colors on this one and wore it a lot last summer, it’s still in great shape!

Swimsuit [true to size]

Allison [6′, size medium or 8/10]


Allison here! Having a blast in Cabo, and loving my new suit from bravissimo! I have a very long torso (6 Foot here!), and this cutout bathing suit fits perfectly! I also have a larger chest (34G here!) and this suit has a built in bra, with underwire! It is beyond comfortable and I’ll def be wearing all summer long at the lake!

Devon [5’8″ , size small or 2]

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing in 2LT]

I am always reaching for the neutrals when it comes to swimsuits, but I had to try this fun swimsuit collaboration with L.L. Bean! The print is so much fun and I can’t wait to wear it this summer!

Swimsuit [true to size, wearing in 2LT] // Regular Length Swimsuit

I didn’t expect to love this suit as much as I do. It feels sexy but not too revealing, it is my go-to black swimsuit! It does not have much support on the top, so it would likely not be a good fit for larger chested ladies. Other colors available!
