best swimsuits of 2017 weheartit

You don’t need a reminder that summer’s coming. But I will do it anyway: Summer’s coming! And now is the time to suit up that bikini bod you’ve been working hard on all winter.

You've been working on it, right? Of course you have! Me too... *slowly puts down the donut*.

Every spring since hitting puberty, I’ve spent at least a few hours crying in the dressing room while trying on bathing suits. But this year, things are going to be different. I’ve prowled the internet to find the sassiest, most creative, and confidence-boosting bathing suits out there for all body shapes and sizes.


So, even when my belly is looking extra doughy, I can still feel confident and cute. If you’re getting ready to stock up on this year’s swimwear, check out the best swimsuits of 2017.


1. Tiare Hawaii: Crochet Monokini

Want to look like a bohemian goddess? This suit will do the trick. Plus, it covers up the tummy if you don’t feel comfortable showing it off.


(Tiare Hawaii, $98)

2. Blue Life Luna Ruffle One Piece

It seems like a simple one-piece from the bottom up, but then, BOOM! Adorableness up top. It's fun and flirty while showing off a bit of those sexy collar bones. 

(Urban Outfitters, $132)

3. Crete Lace Up Pinstripe One Piece Swimsuit


While it may seem kind of simple at first, this pinstripe one-piece is super-flattering and just a bit sexy at the top with its form-fitting nature. It will go perfectly with a solid colored sun hat and will look great paired with a flowy cover-up. 

(Boohoo, $35)

4. Tassle And Ladder Fringe Swimsuit


This one is perfect if you want to show a little skin without showing too much. It's a one-piece but it offers a whole lot of shape with its smartly placed cuts. Plus, the design is a whole lot different than the other one pieces out there. 

(Misguided, $70)

5. Black Deep Plunge Collar Tie Swimsuit

One-piece swimsuits can be just as sexy as two pieces, especially with this kind of cut. Show off your boobs while still covering up your little tummy problem areas. It's a design that says a whole lot, even though it's one solid color. 


(Lavish Alice, $25)

6. Printed Halter Swimsuit

It's got the new floral trend while keeping a more vintage look at the top. If you like pinup style attire, this bathing suit is just the thing for you. It keeps you covered up while showing off your old school taste. 

(Monki, $33)

7. Demure One Piece Suit


How retro is this bathing suit?! If you want to bring back the 1980s, this is the suit for you. It's colorful, form-fitting and actually really trendy since retro clothes are in these days. You'll be sure to set yourself apart from the rest on the beach. 

(Beyond Retro, $24)

8. Showpo: Pamela One Piece In Marigold Floral


Bikinis aren’t the only way to enjoy the beach. This colorful one-piece is the perfect balance between cute and sexy.

(Showpo, $54.39)

9. Araks: Mena One Piece


No matter how much self-love and confidence you have, sometimes you just don’t feel comfortable being exposed on the beach. This one-piece is surprisingly sexy while still keeping you covered up.

(Araks, $335)

10. Make Me Chic: Low Back Halter Bikini

Calling all Marilyn Monroe fans, this bathing suit is for you. It’s dynamic and will make you stand out on a crowded beach... in a good way.


(Make Me Chic, $33)

11. Shopbop: Mermaid One Piece


If Starbucks can make a mermaid frappe, you can make yourself a mermaid beach babe. It’s sporty and simple with a dash of sass.

(Shopbop, $99)



12. Revolve: Seafolly Vintage Wildflower Reversible High Neck Top


A reversible top is like having two bathing suits in one! What’s not to love about that?

(Revolve, $92)



13. Princess Polly: Motel Nude Turpin Bikini

It’s sporty, yet oddly doll-like. Plus, it looks super-comfy and gives you a bit of wiggle room since it’s not skin tight.

(Princess Polly, $90.22)



14. Pretty Little Thing: Rita Crochet Beach Co Ord


It’s got a real hippie vibe going on and the colors will look really flattering against your sun-kissed skin. This one is great for the ladies who don’t like showing off too much cleavage.

(Pretty Little Thing, $32.19)

BUT WAIT — there’s more!

These next two aren’t actually bikinis, but if you’re hitting the beach, you’re going to need them. And these two items are so amazing that you’re going to want them regardless of if you need them or not.

Sunbathe on an actual piece of art with these gorgeous beach towels. Your bikini won’t be the only thing bringing attention your way.

(Slowtide, $39.95)

The sun feels nice, and a tan looks even better, but the rays can do a lot of damage to your skin. This lightweight sunscreen will keep your face safe and paraben-free!


(Kiehl’s, $47.50)

 jane iredale Powder-Me SPF in ‘Tanned’ SPF 30

Powder-Me SPF is a nourishing, easy to use skin protectant that contains titanium dioxide and natural clay to shield against redness and provide light to medium coverage (so you can skip foundation altogether). Added bonus – it’s water resistant up to 40 minutes!
