With control top features from brands like Spanx, it’s much easier to find a suit that will hug your body in the right places. Black is universally slimming, but a bold jewel toned-number will look amazing against your complexion, and you can find one with embellishments to spice it up. If your chest is large, a printed tankini with a sturdy strap or a built-in bra will accentuate your waistline and provide adequate support up top. Also, swim dresses don’t have to be matronly! Pick a fun print and accessorize your look with beach-friendly jewelry.
