The Most Flattering Swimsuit For YOU

Lately, it's taken nearly all our willpower not to think about sun rays, long weekends, and beach hair — from the actual beach and not a bottle. But, there's really no bigger buzzkill than hours of trying on bathing suits that epically fail to do your body justice. And, the fact is, your swimwear is probably the skimpiest outfit you'll don in public, so just feeling "alright" in it won't cut it.
To spare you the stress (and time that could be better spent outdoors), we've outlined the 12 most common body types and the tips for finding a suit that feels practically made for you. After all, once you're on the beach, at the pool, or walking the boardwalk, you shouldn't have to worry about anything other than whether you pick an SPF 30 or 50. Ahead, take a peek at the 48 most flattering bikinis and one-piece wonders that will have you stoked — never stressed out— about ditching the cover-up.
