If you're in the market for a new swimsuit, here's a big roundup of some favorites I've found while shopping. I'm putting a *star by the ones I own and love.

High waisted bikinis are still my absolute favorite. They are so flattering and easy to wear. The thing I love most is how easy they are to mix and match. I have a bunch of patterns and basics that mix and match endlessly.

Peplum swimsuits are my new obsession. I just got two before our trip to Chile, and they were really fun and easy to wear. They kind of play as a one piece with the fit benefits of a two piece (in case your top and bottom are two different sizes!). The only downside was that the extra peplum fabric was kind of floaty and crazy in the water, so I tied mine in a knot while I was actually in the water.
I hesitate to use the term "universally flattering" about almost anything, but this swimsuit style really is flattering on so many different body types, and easier to wear than a bikini OR a one piece.
