Swimwear trends 2018, swim suits, one piece, bikini, monokini, modest swimwear, high waisted swimwear, swimwear for big bust

Are you following up on swimwear trends this summer?

We always need new swimsuits! Jamaica doesn’t have any seasons really so with a beach never more than an hour away at most, we need to refresh our selection maybe more often than anybody else.

I’ve covered most body types here so if you’re a slim gal, boxy gal, busty gal, girly gal or thick gal, you should be able to find a piece you like.

Here’s a quick rundown of current swimwear trends and swimsuits I’m loving.

If you’re a plus size gal there are definitely some options here for you or be sure to check out this post specifically on swimwear for plus size ladies.

Calvin Klein Halter Swimsuit One Piece in black

Let me start with something for my body type. Right now I’m about 20lbs or so over my ideal weight and still battling the tummy bulge, so this swimsuit is perfect for me. It covers up areas that I want to be covered but puts my boobs on high (hubba hubba) and cinches in at the waist to help accentuate that seductive hourglass figure. I also love how low the back is cut. If you’ve got a sexy back (and I’m loving mine right now) this one is for you as it’s cut lower than most one-piece swimsuits. This Calvin Klein Women’s Halter One Piece comes in black and I love that for a sophisticated beach party look, you know the type where you’re not actually going in the water? It’s a perfect blank canvas for big jewellery, funky sunglasses and wild purple hair.

Here’s a couple budget-friendly option from Cupshe (click on images to get buying details)

Another look I love for my body type, as you can see here in this Winnifred Beach post, is a high-waist bikini bottom which is so hot right now and SO perfect for me. I’d go with this basic black bottom so you can switch up the top a million different times. With a little rouching in there plus extra seams, it’s perfect for me and my ladies with a pooch and it goes up to larger sizes as Torrid is a plus size brand. Black High-Waist Bikini Swim Bottoms

Here’s a twist on the ruched bottom bikini. I love the flounce top here, it would work perfectly for those gals with a smaller chest.

Off Shoulder is still very hot right now and this laser-cut off the shoulder one-piece swimsuit is gorgeous! Stylish and covered, my jam.

Here’s a stylish two-piece option for my plus size ladies. It comes in a bunch of colours too.

If you have a boyish figure then this red-hot scalloped bandeau bikini is perfect for you.

I love this Roxy Women’s Fringe Bikini for my boxy ladies too, it’s so girly and fun.

For my barely there ladies, it’s really all about the prints and laces this season.I find this halter style popping up more and more at my favourite stores.

This isn’t a swimsuit but looks absolutely dashing for lounging around the house when it gets a bit chilly. Pir with some thigh high socks for extra sexy, and warmth 😉

So that was my quick run-down of a few summer swimsuit trends! Did you see anything you liked? What direction are you going for swimwear this summer? Lemme know!
