If you, like me, are already daydreaming of summer vacay bliss, now is the time to look at the hottest swimsuit trends for 2021.
1. Swim Shorts to Make a Splash In!
Gone are the days when women sunned themselves while mean played water sports. Women are more active than ever and we need swimwear that will give us the freedom to play and compete while still looking our best. These sweet swim bottoms will help you have fun while you run and play in the sun.
Surge Printed Swim Short by Athleta is one of our favorite swim shorts this season.
Bold is beautiful and this extravagant summer print will help you stand out in the crowd.
These swim shorts are made with active ladies in mind. They are suitable not just for swimming but also for surf, stand-up paddleboard, and all water sports.
They are made of sustainable recycled H2ECO swim fabric, which is smooth, sleek, and provides ample all-around stretch. Fantastically quick-drying, this fabric is rated UPF 50+!
What we really love about these shorts are the little details that might not be immediately apparent. The back pockets let you stash your essentials while you’re on the move and the built-in bikini brief prevents any unflattering surprise reveals.
With multiple matching top options, these shorts will take you through the entire swim season!
Gabriella High-Waisted Swim Short by Fabletics is another excellent option.
We specifically love how these athletic swim shorts come in a wide range of sizes from XXS to 4X. Extra small and plus size swimsuits are beautiful too! Every body type is a beach body and deserves a bathing suit that suits them.
2. Feel Your Confidence Blossom With Floral Prints
The crisis-crossing ties create the illusion of a smaller waist and give this piece a cool boho vibe. The plunging neckline draws attention to the top of the suit while the lower portion of the suit covers the tummy (usually a more self-conscious area for most women).
3 Piece Bikini Set on AliExpress
This great three-piece suit offers those tropical vibes that make you feel like you’re on vacation even when you’re in your own backyard.
3. Ruffle Some Feathers
The Ribbed Ruffled Self-Tie Triangle Bikini Top at Shien is one of our top picks this season.
The textured look is in, and this ruffled and ribbed number is sure to nab you some attention when you’re tanning this summer!
It’s cute enough to draw the eye but not so loud that it will overpower even the shiest of beachgoers who want to enjoy those bikini beach vibes.
Sexy One-piece Large Size Swimwear 2021 on AliExpress
We fully support plus-size ladies and we love this modern classic ruffle look!
The belt around the middle cinches the waist of the piece while the ruffles on the top of the patterned fabric and over the shoulders add a fun and flirty feel. These plus size bathing suits provide tummy control and a super cute style!
4. Cool Cutouts
Cutout-style swimsuits are modern and chic. We don’t think this trend is going anywhere soon, especially given how versatile the cutouts can be!
Seamlessly drawing attention away from self-conscious areas by giving a flirty peak of skin elsewhere on the body, these suits are perfect for any size or shape.
This garment comes in so many colors, patterns, and styles that there’s something there for everyone!
It has a high waist bottom portion with a fairly conservative upper portion to the one-piece suit.
This might be a little more approachable for body-shy ladies than some of the more risque cutouts out there.
5. Wildly Beautiful Updated Animal Print
This sleek snakeskin-style suit is a fresh and modern take on animal print. This one-piece has a plunging V neck and a knotted cord that wraps around the waist.
These sexy push up bikini sets come in multiple styles and prints, so you can have your pick of animal prints.
It comes in both a classical cheat print as well as a white snakeskin, which we feel is going to be one of the hot prints of the 2021 swim season.
6. Get Active, Wear a Rashguard
Rash guards might not have the sexiest name but you sure look cool strutting down the beach wearing one. These long-sleeved swim tops are popular with both men and women for the simple fact that they are made to protect your skin when you get active in the water. They’re also great for ladies with a more conservative approach to their swimwear, and those looking to protect sensitive skin from the sun.
Freestyle Camo Rashguard on Althetica
This piece is perfect for swimming, surf, stand-up paddleboard, and all water sports. It offers full-coverage UPF protection that lets you stay out there longer.
It’s made out of recycled H₂ECO fabric is smooth and sleek with powerful all-way stretch. LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ SPANDEX is an ultra-resilient fabric snaps back like a pro and lasts 5 to 10X longer.
It’s rated UPF 50+ which is excellent protection from the sun.
This one-piece long-sleeved swimsuit has a sweet fish scale pattern that lets you get your mermaid vibes on while surfing, swimming, or playing other beachy sports.
