Best Swimsuits for Women Over 50

Searching for the best swimsuits for women over 50? We’ve got you covered! Check out our list of flattering swimsuits for older women.

Finding a comfortable and flattering bathing suit as you age can feel difficult; you may not want to flaunt your body the same way you did in your 20s and 30s. But just because you don’t want to wear a fairly revealing bikini anymore, doesn’t mean there aren’t other cute and comfortable options available!

In fact, Anthony’s has a wide selection of the best swimsuits for women over 50 to consider! From tankinis and swim dresses, to swim shorts, swim briefs, and even swim skorts, we have so many different options to choose from.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the best swimsuits for ladies over 50, plus some other tips and tricks for completing your beach look.

Best Bathing Suits for Women Over 50

Whether you’re searching for full coverage options, one-piece swimsuits, or high-waisted bottoms that offer tummy control, we’ve got you covered! Here are some of our favorite options for the most flattering swimsuits for older women.

1. The Traditional One-Piece

A traditional one-piece can be the perfect option for someone who wants to cover up and feel the slimming effects of a bathing suit. This traditional one-piece, the Textured Spa Girl Leg Swimsuit by Maxine, features a figure-flattering shirred front that offers full coverage, and a slim, comfortable fit. The tummy control lining keeps the waist in, and the wider straps offer more comfort for those long days on the beach.

2. Tankini and Briefs

If you’re looking for a bathing suit option that covers like a one-piece but comes in a bottom and top design, try a fun tankini and mid-rise brief bottoms. This gives you a chance to mix and match pieces if you want to style your top with different colored bottoms, and vice versa.

For example, you can pair the Moonlight Tropics Double Tier Tankini Top by Maxine with the Mid-Rise Swim Brief by 24th and Ocean. The top features a tropical flower design and a side-knotted overlay. The mid-rise bottoms have a wide waistband for great belly coverage and ultimate comfort. Both work well together and can be paired with other options, too!

3. Bandeau Bathing Suit

Looking for a one-piece bathing option that’s trendier than the traditional? Show a little more skin with a fun bandeau bathing suit. The Fantasy Island Ruffle Bandeau Maillot Swimsuit from Bleu by Rod Beattie is a colorful and unique strapless one-piece option that features a fun tropical leaf pattern and ruffled accents from the waistline to the bustline. Designed to fit your curves perfectly, this swimsuit is a great way to cover up your midsection and still create a lovely silhouette that screams confidence.

4. High-Neck Tankini Top and Swim Skort

Have you ever taken a swim skort for a spin? When paired with a high-neck tankini, this bathing suit combination can give you all of the coverage you need on the beach while sporting a fun and stylish look along the way. Consider the Feathers And Flair High Neck Tankini Top by Maxine paired with a Mesh Ruffle Swim Skort by Beach House. The gold foiled brushstroke design and high neckline of the top create a gorgeous and flattering look, while the ruffled swim skort offers fun and full coverage. Pair the two together for the perfect poolside look.

5. Swim Dress

Want the coverage of the two-piece combination described above with less work? A swim dress is the perfect option for you. This Crafted Botanical Swim Dress by Maxine, for example, features a v-neck line and a chic dress silhouette. The lovely floating flower design can help you get into the zone for your upcoming resort vacation, or help you look chic and stylish for summertime pool days with your friends and family.

6. Sarong Style One-Piece

Another fun and unique dress-style one piece is the sarong swimsuit! The Pacific Cheetah V-Neck Sarong Swimsuit by Roxanne adds a fun feminine flair to your summer and vacation look. And not only does it feature a modest v-neckline, adjustable straps and tie-side sarong skirt wrapped up in a fun animal print, but it’s also designed with chlorine-resistant fabric and UPF50+ sun protection! Enjoy the perfect amount of coverage, support, and sun protection in this lovely swimsuit.

Other Accessories to Keep in Mind

Beyond the best bathing suits for over 50, there are a few other swim accessories that can help you feel comfortable and confident while you strut your stuff on the beach or by the pool. Don’t forget to browse these options when shopping for your next favorite bathing suit:

  • The perfect cover-up.

  • Comfortable sandals.

I purchased a bandeau suit which I really like in Punta Gorda. However, I don’t see many in Venice where I live. Are they not an item?? Do they not sell?? If I buy online can I return to the store if it does not fit properly. Thanks.. jane
