Today's question:

Hi Bikini Whisperer, 

I've skipped out on buying a bikini because I recently gained weight — but to hell with it, I'm ready to jump in the game and feel confident enough to rock the latest trend. I'm wondering, though, about the most flattering trends — some, like tiny bikini bottoms or extremely high cut one-pieces, look tricky, and I'd rather go with something safer. 

Thanks, Trend Quester 


Hi Trend Quester, 

We feel you — high-cut one-pieces and skimpy little things can be intimidating. It takes a ton of guts to rock these fashion-forward looks. Other trends, though, are just as on-point while being way easier to wear. See below for examples — our picks look great on nearly every body type — while offering a super-stylish edge.



One-shoulder suits make a remarkable statement without too much fuss — and trust that eye-catching sharp angle to get noticed.

MIKOH Queensland Top, $112 and Adriana Degreas Bicolor One Shoulder One Piece, $323


Necklines get a facelift with a high collar that's grandma approved. It's semi-conservative, sophisticated detail.

Horizontal stripes can be tricky — but vertical stripes are an easy way to incorporate this strong trend.

Florals for spring and summer are a given but can look too adolescent. Go for a darker palette.

Hot As Hell U Turn One Piece, $268 and Rove Dixie Top, $120


Looking feminine and chic is made easy, thanks to popular, off-shoulder necklines. It's the one trend that works well for women of all sizes and ages.

In coverups, lightweight robes reign right now.

It's almost impossible to buy a color-block bikini that won't flatter your shape. Bonus: Usually color blocks are placed to slim the silhouette.

At first, a nude hue may seem scary — but the large array of shades makes selecting the right tone easy. It's the color of the season!
