Swimsuits that Fit and Flatter

swimsuit confidence week

Do you have a swimsuit that flatters you? Now is the time to shop for a suit that makes you look and feel fabulous. Memorial Day weekend is upon us and I have taken the plunge. Yes, it's a bit bold to post a swim picture, but it's all a part of National Swimsuit Confidence Week.

For the past few years, Lands' End has sent suits out to women and challenged them to slip on a suit, pose and feel great in just a few bits of fabric. Since I'm all about empowerment, I joined the fray. Don't be the woman hiding out in the shade while everyone else is having fun in the water. Find a great suit and go for it.

I'm wearing the Shape & Enhance Dot Surplice Tankini Top ($99) in Black Shadow Dots. Let me tell you, this top is a secret weapon. Thanks to the "exclusive technology" my boobs have been lifted back to where they were before kids and my waist has been nipped in. The suit is structured, but not stiff and constricting. The rouching (or all-over shirring) takes off inches.


On the bottom I've got the Regular Shape & Enhance Bikini Bottom ($49). It's a great basic bottom, that doesn't ride up.

I love tankini styling. When I want to get exposure on my tummy, I can. When I want to be more covered, I can do that too. They are sexy and also work for water sports. Just a versatile, flattering style. Yes, I still have some bikinis that get some pool time, but a sleek suit like this invariably is my go-to suit. How about you? What are you wearing to the beach this weekend?
