A day on the beach or beside the pool requires a swimsuit that is stylish but allows you to rock your figure with confidence.

TFG readers once again weigh in with their top choices for cute modest swimwear

Travel Girl Fashion help! A reader asks:

 

I’m headed to Maui (Wailea) later this year. I feel dandy about everything except dum-da-dum: bathing suits! Oh Lord help me. I have been to Tommy Bahama and all the usual suspects. I am in my late 50s and don’t personally want a 2 piece. Any vendor recommendations for a flattering one piece with a little “something?” So not athletic. Sorry for the vague ask. 

 

Ladies modest swimsuits that are comfortable and allow you to have fun in the sun in confidence can be the Holy Grail of beach vacation packing lists. Once you’ve found a brand that fits your curves like a dream, you never turn back. There are so many designs to choose from, from halter necks, high waisted bottoms, and long sleeve rashguards.
