Unbelievably Fabulous & Flattering One-Piece Swimsuits: Made For Lake Girls

When it comes to enjoying the sun, sand, and water at the lake, having the perfect swimsuit is essential. There's something effortlessly chic and comfortable about a one-piece swimsuit we just love. Not only do one-pieces typically provide ample coverage and support (you never know these days!!!), but they also offer a sense of confidence and style that's perfect for lakeside adventures. There are also many brands and styles in the market, we wanted to pull our favs forward to guide you in shopping for a fabulous and flattering suit for your next lake trip.  From trendy designs to practical features, these swimsuits combine fashion and function, ensuring you look and feel fabulous while making a splash in the refreshing waters of the lake, no matter your age or shape.

The primary factors we're looking for when shopping for a fabulous swimsuit:  

  1. High-quality fabric for support and comfort
  2. Ruching or details to hide middle area (belly fat) like you'll see below in the wrap style.  
  3. Full coverage, yet flattering
  4. Fashionable, trend right and fun

Nip Tuck Nautical Foil One-Piece Wrap Swimsuit- We ran across the Nip Tuck swim brand several years ago when we scored a few on the sale rack at TJMaxx and fell in love. These suits are made of the utmost quality and are designed to focus on a flattering and slimming appearance.  The fabric is high quality and  provides adequate support. This Australian based swimwear brand has perfected the fit of a comfortable swimsuit. Check out this Nautical Foil design that's navy and gold with a little shimmer, such a fun touch for days spent in the sunshine.

Other brands we LOVE

For years now, we have loved the Athleta brand.  They have a fabulous fit and are made for middle-older aged women's bodies.  We aren't crazy about any of the prints they currently have but always recommend checking out their solid suits for your next adventure.  

Title Nine has always been in our top rankings too.  They are always rated with 4-5 stars and have rave reviews from customers.  Kim has owned several of their suits in the past and can attest that they are fabulous quality and last for years!  Our current Title Nine fav is this long sleeve rash guard suit that's a fun pastel color palette and the perfect summer essential to add to your suit collection, especially if you are looking for an extra dose of sun protection.

Swimsuit shopping isn't the most fun thing to do, we know.  But we truly believe that investing in a high-quality swimsuit made of thicker and more supportive fabric will provide you with a flattering and comfortable suit you'll love.  People often say to us, how do you spend $100 on a swimsuit, to which we say... they are better quality, more flattering, and usable for 2-3 summers and beyond.  That's easily worth $100 to us!  

Happy shopping to all and happy lake season friends!
