I rarely shop for new clothes before a trip, but I get excited about getting new swimwear for a beach adventure. Check out my great finds, including some cute one-piece swimsuits and fun, flattering, sexy bathing suits!


New Swimsuits



Table Of Contents



For my trip to Bonaire, I planned to pack: two shorts, a couple tops, one Leith dress, a romper cover-up, one to two rash guards, and three bathing suits. (I usually only pack one to two, but I’m so excited!)

I decided to upgrade from two-piece bikinis to more flattering — but hopefully attractive — one-piece swimsuits. To balance the new coverage in my torso, I looked for bathing suits that exposed more on top instead of the middle.

While I wanted to transition into a one-piece vs. two-piece swimsuit, the style had to make sense for my personal preferences, and this meant that I didn’t want to look overly conservative. 

While I normally opt for underwire bikinis, most of these suits do not have underwire. It was hard to find a cute underwire swimsuit one piece, but I’m happy with these finds, plus some of them were under $30!



From rash guards to one-pieces and my favorite bikini, these are my new swimsuit buys:




Charlie Textured Bralette Bikini Top | Dylan Textured Hipster Bottom


MaxSwim by Everything But Water


As someone with a naturally large bust, it’s very frustrating to go bathing suit shopping because swimwear rarely offers coverage and never has enough support. While I’ve found cute wired swimwear brands that specialize in DD+ cup sizing, it’s challenging to find stylish options that look less like a bra and more like a regular bikini top.

Enter Maxswim by Everything but Water. THEY HAVE THE BEST NON-WIRED FULL COVERAGE BIKINIS I’VE EVER FOUND!!!!! Plus, they’re actually cute and sexy, too!




Charlie Textured Bralette Bikini Top | Dylan Textured Hipster Bottom


It’s a new collection so they don’t have many options but it’s worth every bit of the (expensive) price for me to find a bikini that makes me feel good instead of feeling embarrassed and self-conscious on the beach.

Living in Playa del Carmen, cute swimwear is a must and Maxswim has been a game-changer for me. I bought two colors in each of the two sets and these are now my go-to bathing suit brand of choice. I don’t need anything else!

Miraclesuit Siren One-Piece


Miraclesuit One Piece Bathing Suit


This is going to be my new dive bathing suit, and it‘s actually the priciest one on my list. I originally found it on Nordstrom, and then discovered this particular color and size was half price on Amazon. That made the purchase a much easier decision.

I’d heard a lot about these bathing suits and how flattering they were. However, I wanted to choose one that was also fun and sexy.



I also liked that it could be possible for this to double as a top worn over my denim shorts or sarong. Scuba diving destinations tend to have a very chilled-out crowd, so cute but casual beach attire is a must.

I wish it had a little bit more support, but I’m very happy with it — super flattering and pretty design, too!

Many travelers designate one packing cube just for their swimwear, bras and underwear.




Daci Women Rashguard Long Sleeve Zip


Zipped Floral Rash Guard


I also bought a second rash guard swimsuit for snorkeling or as an underlayer for colder dives. I liked that this style was one piece so I wouldn’t have to worry about my regular rash guard riding up on my tummy.



The design is very feminine, and I like the zipped front so I could style it to create a v-shape neckline when I wasn’t in the water. I plan to wear the below two-piece bikini underneath.

Sociala Deep Plunge One Piece Monokini Bathing Suit


Monokini Swimsuit


When on a beach trip, it’s always good to have at least two bathing suits so you always have a dry option when the other is wet. This is my “I want to look awesome hanging out on the beach” bathing suit. I am definitely not diving with this style of bathing suit but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.



I was so happy with this purchase and didn’t expect an inexpensive Amazon–bathing suit to feel so flattering. I can’t recommend it enough! It’s available to size 2XL and is offered in a variety of colors. I can’t wait to order another color. Plus, it’s hubby approved.

Body Glove Smoothies Underwire Bikini Top in Black


Underwire Bikini


This is my regular cup bikini that I love! This one is always my go-to, plus it doubles as a bra and allows me to wear cute beach tops that I might not otherwise be able to wear with my regular bra. So, this is a perfect option for a relaxing beach trip.

The back is completely adjustable, so you can wear it as a cross-back or bra style. This bikini top is fantastic for DD+ women because they don’t have to worry about buying for a specific bandwidth. If you’re looking for swimsuits for big busts, this bikini works for a variety of body shapes and sizes!

As a plus, this style comes in dozens of colors and prints.

I wear it with this side tie bikini bottom, but you can match it with whatever bottom type you prefer.

CUPSHE Vintage Lace Bikini Sets Beach Swimwear


Vintage Lace Swimwear


I bought the last blue bathing suit because it looked like the one Alynne was wearing in this Nas Daily video. I had seen a similar one on Amazon, and after seeing the video — I had to buy it!




I decided not to bring it on my trip to Bonaire but decided to keep it for my travels to Playa del Carmen! It couldn’t be more perfect for this destination. Like the red bathing suit mentioned previously, I was so surprised with how much I loved the way this fit me, too. Even without an underwire, it managed to work!

Trina Turk Off Shoulder Ruffle Bandeau One Piece


Off-the-shoulder Swimsuit


I love the idea of this off-the-shoulder bathing suit, but the cut of the bottom is not suited to my personal taste.  However, I did end up keeping it because it’s super cute, it can double up as a top, and I can also wear the ruffles higher up on my shoulders for a different look.

I have the swimsuit in black but it’s available in a wide range of colors. I wish I would’ve bought it in the dark teal or the red color. However, the black is classic and easy to dress up or down when paired with a sarong or other beach cover up.

I loved the indigo color in both the swimsuit and rash guard — perfect for someone like me who loves the ocean and scuba dives. I plan to pair them together when I scuba dive or snorkel.
