Happy summer, friends! Jack just got out of school for the summer and we’ve been frequenting the pool almost daily since it opened, so swimsuits are front and center in my mind. Today I wanted to do a round-up of swimsuits that have caught my eye this season, in case anyone is looking for a great one.
2023 Swimsuit Top Picks
shop the post:
I tend to prefer one piece swimsuits with a deep V in the front, or one pieces that are one shouldered. For two pieces, I like bottoms with a high rise that aren’t too cheeky, and I tend to prefer a triangle top style. I love solids, stripes, florals, and block prints, and I have a small chest so support isn’t a big concern for me. Occasionally I venture out of my comfort zone, but those are typically what I look for. As far as brands go, J.Crew, J.Crew Factory, and Summersalt are my tried and true favorites. The swimsuits from these brands are (mostly) classic, I know they offer styles that fit a body like mine, and they hold up well summer after summer. The majority of my swimsuits are a number of years old, though I do like to add a couple new ones each summer.
Of note, here are some of my favorite swimsuits that I own and wear often-
J.Crew Factory Shoulder Tie One Piece (right around $39.50, depending on their sales)- This suit is GORGEOUS. It’s fully lined, has a deep V, has full coverage in the back, it is fully lined, and it has pads. I have the block print version but really want to add the striped one to my collection (also comes in cobalt and black). Shoulder ties are so flattering, in my opinion, and they allow you to adjust the fit as needed. I find that this runs true to size.

Summersalt Sidestroke ($95)– I joke that this is the official mom swimsuit of our pool because so many women have it! I still wear it often and don’t mind “twinning” with strangers because I love the suit so much. It sucks you in nicely, looks lovely on all body types, and is fully lined. The one downside is that it does not have pads. I size up a size in this. It also comes in a long torso version, though I get the regular version. I have it in lava/hibiscus/white sand and sky/blue mountain/white sand.
Summersalt Ruffle Backflip ($95)- This timeless swimsuit is nice and simple with ruffles on the arm holes. It is a tad cheekier than the sidestroke, but not so much that I mind it. This suit does have built-in pads, and it comes in lots of colors and prints. I size up a size in this.
