A month is plenty of time to go swimsuit shopping online. And find yourself the perfect swimwear outfit.

Of course one of the best parts of being an online swimsuit shop is that it’s never too late to buy women’s swimwear.

So check out this list of the 10 hottest bathing suits for women. Continue reading

Celebrity bathing suit trends

Ready to head to the beach in style and cause your own paparazzi frenzy in the process? Take a few cues from celebrities like Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and the Jessica Alba when you go swimsuit shopping so that you too can show off your stellar style!

Seaview, seafolly bikini

Taylor Swift’s striped bikini looks just like the Seaview Bikini by Seafolly

Retro-Inspired Swimwear

Taylor Swift’s retro-inspired striped bikini is a stylish, yet still practical swimsuit for the girl that likes to get active at the beach but isn’t training for a marathon. Her super cute bikini reminds you of the swimsuit the first barbie wore. The adorable bikini bottoms will keep your bum covered completely, and the molded cup bra-top gives you a little lift while still offering support. Shades and some luscious red lips (because you HAVE to have  red lips when rocking a hot bikini like this) complete the look. Match Taylor Swift’s bikini style with the Seafolly, Seaview Bikini. If you’re inspired by Taylor’s suit but would still feel more comfortable in a one-piece swimsuit, try the Seaview Tie Front Halter Maillot By Seafolly Swimwear.

One piece La Blanca swimwear

Rihanna has no fear of a white swimsuit and you won’t either with this La Blanca one-piece bathing suit

 

The White One-Piece Bathing Suit

Few celebrities in swimsuits garner as much attention as Rihanna. She was sported a white one-piece on vacation in the South of France in July. And if Rihanna is going to wear a sexy one piece, you know the fashion world is going to to take notice. The subtly striped white one piece swimsuit looks just ravishing on her sexy curvacious body. Replicating this white hot look is easy with either the Anne Cole Lingerie Maillot or La Blanca Swimwear’s Sheer & Present Danger One Piece Bandeau. Either one can help you achieve a similar silhouette.

 

Leilani Bikini selena Gomez

Effortlessly Sexy Bikini

Selena Gomez hit all the right marks when she recently wore a zebra-print bikini to the beach. It showcased her tall, slender and slightly curvy frame without overpowering her. (Animal print in small doses is easier to wear). The LEILANI PEARL ISLAND TWIST-KINI will help you get her look without being an exact copy-cat: the classic print in pretty purple color with twist front bottoms give the suit a little something extra!

 

Becca Swimsuit

Jessa Alba Looks great in her purple bikini. And you can too with this Becca Swimwear bikini

Classic Halter Top Bikini

Jessica Alba is one of the many celebrities who look great in a bikini. Just about every celebrity rocks the Classic halter top bikini look at some point. The 32-year-old mom of two stunned beach goers in this purple bikini, which she accessorized with a colorful cover-up and straw hat. She certainly enjoyed a fun beach day in Malibu with her family. To get this smoking hot look go with the TANZANIA SOLID PUSH UP BIKINI BY BECCA and a Royal Tunic by Elan Cover Ups. You’ll be sure to look as amazing at the beach as Jessica Alba

R Collection Monokini

 Sexy Glam Monokini

Christina Millian’s snake-skin monokini with cutouts was all about showing off the sexy curves on her petite frame. The sexy cutouts show off the hard she’s putting in the gym, and the print adds a glam element to it-if you’re headed to a pool party this suit (with a cute coverup, of course) will really have you in the spotlight. Try the STEADY DRIFTING RIVIERA MONOKINI BY R COLLECTION for a similar silhouette. The ANNE COLE MESH HALTER is a great alternative for someone that wants to give the illusion of cutouts but still be completely covered up.

Why it’s Easier to Buy Swimsuits for Women Over 40

Women's swimwear

Shopping for women’s swimwear when you’re over 40 is so much easier then shopping for swimsuits for ladies under 25.

Shopping for women’s swimsuits can be really hard. Especially for women in their 40’s and over, who often feel that the deck is stacked against them. They feel there’s no swimwear out there for them, that their bodies aren’t good enough to wear a bathing suit, that they’re stuck with a boring old one piece that their 75 year old mother would wear. It can feel like buying a new bathing suit for a woman like you is harder than for a girl in her teens and twenties.

But when you take a step back you’ll realize there are a number of pretty logical reasons why it’s easier to shop bathing suits for women over 40 years old. Continue reading
