Let’s be real, buying a cute swimsuit online and it not being what we expect (totally unflattering), is not something we should have to deal with regularly before we step into the sunshine.

That’s why I've put together a one-stop-shop for all things swimwear. You’ll find my favorite swimsuits, cover-ups and beach looks (and where to find them) below! 


I love having different styles of cover-ups because it brings a variety to my swim look. I always go for comfy, light and airy so I can jump out of the water, dry off a bit and put my cover-up back on. 

If you’re looking for a breezy skirt to go over your swimsuit, try this one! It’s so simple but brings such a beachy, boho vibe to your entire look. 

If you’re the type to wear a pair of flowy pants and simply pair a swimsuit top with them, you’ll love these. They’re almost like joggers, but they’re super high rise with a light and airy feel. 

This button-up dress is perfect for the beach and a night out with friends as you can wear it unbuttoned or buttoned, and the light blush color looks beautiful with tan, summer skin!

high-five for high-rise

I don’t think I'm the only one happy that high-rise swimsuits are back in style. Not only are they comfortable, but they hug everything in creating an overall flattering look. While I love high-rise suits, not all are created equal. 

This one is one of my favorites as it sits perfectly above the waist and the vertical stripes add a lengthening touch to my figure. 

I know I’ve talked about this suit before, but it’s worth mentioning again because of its price point and quality. I love the lemon print but there are so many colors to choose from! 

If you're going for a bold print, try this bandeau, leopard print top with matching, high-rise bottoms (pictured above!)

one pieces…

one-pieces are great when you’re trying to limit exposure to the sun. I love playing with different printed suits for a fun and flirty look. Pair it with a tied skirt and it looks like a bodysuit! Finding a one-piece that passes comfort and style is hard to come by, but definitely not impossible. 

This high-neck, low-back striped one-piece is perfect for a lake or beach day with friends. It can be paired perfectly with the white pair of pants I mentioned above. 

This tri-colored one piece is so girly and chic with the tied side look. I love the deeper v-neck cut… and it’s only $36.99!

classic bikinis

Want to keep it simple and go stick with a classic rise bikini? This one is a great, affordable option. I love the striped print and the tied top is absolutely adorable

Looking to take your look a step further? Go for this oversized button-up that works as a cover-up and dress, it's like a two in one! I like that it brings in a sophisticated vibe but still feminine and inviting. 

top off your look...

Top your beach or pool look off with this white pair of summer sandals. I love the toe-hole sandals for summer with a dress or a flowy skirt. If you’re looking for something with a bit more height, try these adorable weave and wicker pumps. They’re the perfect collaboration of comfort and beach. 

I hope this guide gave you some direction regarding which swimwear to buy. I’ll be soaking up the sunshine and I can’t wait to see you doing the same in your new swimwear! Tag me on Instagram @nellamoon, let’s connect!
