Tuesday Ten: Swimsuit Guide

Now that we are all getting in tip-top shape with my Bikini Boot Camp Plan, it’s time to start actually shopping for the perfect swimsuit. I usually like to snag a new suit before Memorial Day since I almost always end up on the beach or at the pool… What about you?

But before you shop, make sure you check out my swimwear guide on how to pick the right swimsuit for your body. That way you will have a better idea as to which cuts work best with your shape. Once you’ve pinpointed a style that works, get shopping!

Here are 10 of my favorite swimsuits for summer 2012:

1. Divided Tapestry Bikini
2. 3.1 Phillip Lim Bandeau Bikini
3. Tori Praver Betty Ruched Bikini
4. J.Crew Polka-Dot Bikini
5. Madewell Telegraph-Stripe Tanksuit
6. Opening Ceremony Balconette Swimsuit
7. Mara Hoffman Embroidered Bikini
8. Fluorescent Throwback Bikini
9. Chloe Scalloped Bikini
10. Poolside Glow Bikini

Which one is your favorite?

Or if you found another cute swimsuit that’s reasonably priced elsewhere, share the link in the comments below. Your fellow readers will appreciate it!

XO Lauren

    I love #4!! I can’t wait to get a new bathing suit! Thanks for the tips Lauren:)

  • Sarah Heckle

    I like #2 – it’s simple, but cute! It’s supposed to be around 90 degrees here this weekend — I will definitely be poolside!

  • Angela Christianson

    #2 Classic, simple and always flattering black!

  • Rachel Trampel

    I absolutely LOVE #7 and #10… I just bought three new swimsuits in February (I was dreaming of going somewhere over spring break but it never happened). I like the way Victoria’s Secret suits fit me but my friend is just starting a job at a swimsuit boutique so I’ll have to venture out and see what else there is out there!

    #7!!!!! Oh my goodness, it’s so AWESOME! Great find. I loooove that. I haven’t gotten around to swimsuit shopping yet, but that will be something I keep in mind for SURE.

    I’m also in the summer mood with my fashion. Today I posted a pretty pinky outfit that just feels like warm weather.

  • Saule Andriuskeviciute

    10 is quite nice, but none of these are the ‘wonderbra’ effect ones and I am afraid I am one of those girls that needs that :-) x

  • Petra Zeller

    I like number 1, 3 and 7 :) but all are really pretty. Like it.
    xoxo, Petra

  • Didenur Kazar

    i want 8 !!!!!!

  • Kelly Burt

    My favorite is definitely the J. Crew polka-dotted bikini. I also like the divided tapestry bikini. I am planning on going bathing suit shopping tomorrow and can’t wait!!

  • Kelley {Keep Sitting Pretty}

    #2 & 6 are my favorites! Knowing the type of bathing suit that fits your body is so important! I just shared my Faves recently:-)

  • Megan McKay

    #1 and #7!!!!!!!! I’d kill for both, it’s too bad my wallet can’t attest to my wants!!

  • Stephanie Weber

    I love the #7 Mara Hoffman suit, but the link doesn’t work! :(

  • Rebecca Jean

    I’m loving number 8! I also love this underwire striped number from Asos.

  • Tiffani Stuart

    My favs are 1,2,4, 9, 10! They’re so much fun. I also like 8- – b/c I love all things retro. That’s a total revamped “”Pin up girl”” look. I have to disagree w/Lexie, though- I think as long as your body fabulous, you can wear a bikini. (I mean, I’m 31yrs old, so I have to say that– hoping to get into a bikini again, someday, lol… ) but also, look a Camille Donatacci Grammar…or Brandy Glanville– There’s not many people who think they’d look bad in a bikini, lol. The chic is HOT! Of course, it is about preference & what each person considers appropriate– but when I lose all my weight, It’ll be a sin for me NOT to wear a bikini, lol.

  • Marvin C.

    I Like #3 the most… =] …Have a Great day Lauren…X

  • Tiffani Stuart

    I’m surprised there’s no Ashley Paige, Lauren, lol…

  • Robi

    My fav is #2 ;)

  • Madeline Breen

    These are all SO cute. I love #2 — the LBS (little black swimsuit). Universally flattering. Every girl needs one! If you’re looking a few more affordable swimsuit ideas, I recently blogged some finds here (featuring Gap, AE, even Zappos!): http://www.stylemethrifty.com/2012/05/07/affordable-and-flattering-bathing-suits/

  • Judith Azuelos-Jasmin

    Love the polka dot j.crew and#2 and 3..totally my style

  • Marianna Defendini

    #1 and #6 I just love the prints!

  • Tere Sa

    I love numer 2, it’so chic ;-)

  • Lot Franken

    i loooove #1!

  • Martin M

    I love number 9. I think ornage is such an intense and wonderful color. So perfect to spice up the summer :)

  • Alexandra Lasota

    How gorgeous! I especially like 2. Big fan of strapless this year, only cause I’m not down with tan lines :) .. I actually purchased my memorialday bikini which you can see here http://www.alexandras-corner.com/?p=879

    If you love bright colored swimwear like I do you’ll want to check it out!

    Lovely blog post..kind of want to get swimsuit number 2 now :)

  • Amenah Hussein

    2-4-9 totally the best!!

  • Alejandra Martinez Vazquez

    3,7 and 10 are my fabs :)

  • Camille

    #2 is a swimsuit I would definitely wear; i have one almost identical! #8 is probably my favorite because the top isn’t something I see in stores too often, so I wouldn’t have to worry that someone else might have the same suit as me. I like how it gives the benefit of the retro style, while keeping it modern with the bottom because I’m just not into the high-wasted bottoms that are popular right now.

  • Veronica Lopez

    Number 1 and 6 are so pretty!!

  • Umbrella Drink

    I am loving number 9.

  • Liesl

    Number 4! I’ve found that the traditional bikini cut is the most flattering on my body. Yay for a healthy and fit body this year! Can’t wait to go bikini shoppping!

  • Janella Haf

    oh my GOD . I absolutely adore the first one.

    I love the colors and the cut fits me perfectly. Sadly I’m living in Austria sooo it will be hard for me to get such a bikini.

    I really like #5…those crisscross straps remind me of all of the bathing suits that my dad & stepmom used to buy me…and I hated them (the straps not my parents!) :)

  • Sabrinchen

    The polka-dot one gets my vote, but I also like the black bikini!

    All so cute and very stylish, now just gotta get the body and what not for one. Currently wearing a one piece, which I feel good in, but after having a child it is different wearing a two piece cause of the way one may feel about themselves. Any advice?

  • ALF_NJ

    Loving the ruched look this summer & ruffles and fringe. I picked up a few cute bathing suits from here: http://www.winkyboo.com/swimwear-2/
    Their suits are all hand-crafted & each is slightly different so if 2 ppl purchase the same style suit – each will be individualized – I love that cuz I hate people having the same bathing suit as me!
