Q: I’m a curvy size 12, and swimsuit shopping makes me more than a little nervous. I’ve seen a few retro-style sheath "swimdresses" out there à la Esther Williams. Are these in style, and if so, what are some of the best ones out there?
More important than what’s currently in style is what makes you feel and look good. If you like the look and feel of these retro-style sheath swimdresses–and they make you feel great (or at least, less self conscious), go for it!
Here’s our three favorite swimdresses:
MICHAEL Michael Kors Adjustable Swimdress | $76.80 (sale) at Macy’s
Side ruching makes this swimsuit adjustable AND it flatters your figure.
DKNY Draped Swimdress | $112 at Macy’s
Again, the ruching at the sides of this swimsuit will help camouflage a tummy. (Pictured)
Miraclesuit Swimdress | $128-$138 at Nordstrom
Cross-body draping is slimming, and the patented Miratex fabric will help smooth and contour your body.
But yes, sheath swimdresses are in style this season.
