The Most Glamorous Bathing Suits For Women Over 40

May 2nd, 2024 by

Have you ever noticed how, somewhere along the way, we were all sold the message that being “low maintenance” makes us better and cooler somehow? Like, the less time and care and attention we put into taking care of ourselves, the more laid back and chill and unintimidating we became. The prevailing style, for so […]

The Best Swimwear Trends (& Brands) Over 40

April 11th, 2022 by

Trends are fun and all, but if you don’t also have flattery, what’s the point? We deserve both. Bathing suits are especially tricky because we can feel overexposed and vulnerable. A well-made suit that holds everything in and up and helps you relax and enjoy outdoor summer fun is critical. The perfect bathing suit over […]

5 Ways to Look Great in a Bathing Suit

March 23rd, 2017 by

Okay, so I’ve shown you about a bajillion bathing suits, but really, the actual suit-wearing only comprises a fraction of your summer: the swimming and sunning and sporting part. What do you wear when you’re not in the water? A cute coverup is critical, and in my opinion, it’s second only to the suit in importance. […]

Your Bathing Suit Problems, Solved

March 22nd, 2017 by

Lately, I’ve been teaching my girls a truth that, as adults, we know all too well. There’s always someone who has it better.

Best Bathing Suits for Straight Body Types

March 24th, 2016 by

What do Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz and most supermodels have in common? They have straight body types. This means that their hips and shoulders are about the same and their waist isn’t very defined. Sound like you? Then you, and your glamorous counterparts, could be a Style Dial 3. And this, frankly, makes me […]

Best Bathing Suits for Women with Hips

March 23rd, 2016 by

You’ve either got’em or you don’t. Hips, that is. And if you’ve got’em, nobody needs to point them out to you. I have never met a woman with curvy hips who was unaware that she had curvy hips. After all, she’s been dressing them her entire adult life. So if you are blessed with a feminine […]

Best Bathing Suits for Proportional Body Types

March 22nd, 2016 by

I’m going to tell you, in case you haven’t heard it before, that you are blessed. I’m sure you’re blessed in lots of ways, of course, but I’m talking about blessed on a strictly superficial level here. You have the body type that clothing companies and designers live for — the kind that they wish […]

March 21st, 2016 by

I have just spent what feels like weeks looking at 20-something models in tiny, tiny bathing suits. Months, maybe. Seriously. And no, this wasn’t a misguided attempt to motivate myself to get in shape for swimsuit season. I promise. It was work, actually.
