Gorgeous Swimsuits For Your Age

Embrace your 20s bod with playful, strappy numbers that hug at the shoulders and hips. It's a subtle way to show off a little more skin.

Bring out your inner feminine beach bunny with a sexy crochet bikini—a tropical vacation must-have.

If you're tummy-conscious or simply love a vintage flair, try a high-waisted triangle bikini with ruching for a tighter fit.

Trade in the usual triangle bikini for a bandeau option with crisscross straps at the front. This allows for more coverage around the chest and adds interesting detail.

If you prefer one-pieces, try a suit with a keyhole rendered in a colorful crochet design. It's the chicest look with a hint of skin.

A streamlined high-waisted bandeau bikini is both elegant and flattering for any sophisticated lady who wants everything sucked in.

Just because you're in your 40s doesn't mean you have to resort to boring one-pieces. Select a suit with pretty scalloped edges and an empire waist cut that shows a peek of skin at the right place. The shoulder strap provides additional support.

This beautiful floral two-piece has molded cups that shape your bust and thick straps to hold everything up. The briefs provide coverage and comfort, while the ruffles offer a feminine touch.

If you're conscious of your arms, a rash guard bikini is your best friend. Plus, it'll keep you warm in the water.


When you enter your 50s, coverage is the most important concern. However, you can still bare some skin in a more demure fashion with an off-the-shoulder quarter-sleeve suit.

If you don't want to entirely eschew the bikini, choose a tank version with mid-rise boy shorts.

A one-piece with stripes that point downward help slim your figure while providing coverage.

In your 60s, a chic one-piece is your go-to. To avoid wearing underwhelming, mundane options, enhance your body with a bright suit with subtle embellishments.

If you want the optimal coverage and protection from the sun, choose a long-sleeve suit with a color-blocked design for a pop of brightness.

This classic ruched halter swimsuit is a foolproof silhouette to cover the hips and lift the bust.
