I’m at our condo on beautiful Sanibel Island again, and because of that, I’ve got everything swimwear on my mind! When I’m here at the beach, I spend part of every single day in swimwear! Whether I’m paddle boarding, watching Bob fish, or just reading a book on the beach (HERE’S what I’m reading now.), I’m all about swimsuits and coverups!
Over the years we’ve been coming to Sanibel, I’ve learned that you don’t need to spend a fortune to find swimwear that you feel good in. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’m an equal opportunity shopper. This year I brought THIS one piece from the Draper James x Land’s End collection and THIS Aruba Blues Sash one piece from Cabana Life. But every other suit I brought with me this year is from Amazon!
So today, we thought it would be fun to gather up a wide selection of reasonably priced Amazon swimsuits for women over 50 in a variety of unique styles. Everyone wants to feel confident and comfortable at the beach, and these Amazon finds definitely don’t sacrifice cuteness for comfort! Amazon is a great place to shop for bathing suits because each suit comes in many different colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find one to suit your taste. (Not to mention the great price point!) If you don’t love the way your swimsuit fits, you can return it unworn, to Amazon within 30 days, worry-free.
As always, click any pink text link or image for more information about anything you see. If you find one style you love, be sure to click through to see multiple color combinations and prints! I tend to choose colored suits and fun florals, but most of these are also available in black or another solid color.
The Best Amazon Swimsuits for Women Over 50
Possibly the most flattering swimsuit design is the high-waist, and good news…it’s still totally in style! This choice is popular with everyone, not just with women over 50. High-waisted suits are the perfect design if you want to hide your lower tummy area or if you love the idea of a bikini but aren’t quite comfortable in an itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini anymore! 🙋♀️
Any kind of ruffle is IN for 2021, and I’m all over this girly detail! If ruffles fall in just the right places, they can show a little love to areas we may want to cover up. Conversely, as someone with a smaller bust, I look for swimsuits with ruffles over that area to visually enhance! This year, look for ruffles on the neckline, arms, shoulders, over the chest or tummy, and on the bottom piece too!
Tankinis are the classic swimsuit design for women over 50! I love them because they’re so much easier than one-pieces to take on and off (removing a wet one-piece for a bathroom trip is tricky!), but they offer the same coverage. You can also wear a pair of shorts or a sarong over the bottoms, and the looser top just looks like a tank!
One-piece swimsuits are classics. I think even the younger generation is learning that more coverage is actually very appealing to the eye! One-pieces elongate the torso and look so sleek. Sometimes small, tasteful cut-outs on the sides or front can be slimming too! This sporty one-piece would be great for actives like paddleboarding or kayaking.
Skirts and Flowy Swim Dresses
Skirts and Swim dresses are ideal if you want more coverage on the bottom half! They’re feminine, flowy, and flattering on all body types. Check out this best-selling high-waisted $10 swim skirt and this highly rated swim dress.
We found so many Amazon swimsuit cover-ups and beach dresses that are affordable and SO adorable! I’m talking around $25 and under, people! I love throwing on a cover-up for a walk along the beach or lunch at the poolside cafe. They’re perfect when your swimsuit isn’t completely dry, and you don’t want to get your clothes wet. I also think long kimonos look so glamorous, especially this lace one!
I hope shopping for Amazon swimsuits has filled you with all the beachy vibes, and you’re getting excited for summer weather and your next vacation! To see more, you can always check out the swimwear category on the Empty Nest Blessed Amazon page! No matter which style appeals to you, I hope you wear it with confidence and enjoy soaking up the sun and saltwater! Let me know your fave swimsuit style and color in the comments, okay?!
