It’s March, so you’re beach ready right? Me either, but because it’s heating up in Scottsdale already and I’m headed to Cuba next month, I find myself already looking up current swimsuit trends. To my surprise, there are more rashguard suits to choose from this year than years past.
Two years ago, I bought my first one and I loved having something that was sleek, cool and sexy that also kept me more covered. I bought it for a trip to Kauai and it was the perfect way to keep my shoulders covered after the got a bit too sunkissed.
Why is the rashguard swimsuit trend so awesome?
- Help mommas with tiger stripes hide them in a stylish way, should they choose to
- Hides abs ‘in progress’
- Covers/prevents sunburn
- Keeps you a more covered for those pool events where you just don’t want to bare all (niece or nephew’s birthday party)
- They can be very slimming
Which suits are the most slimming?
Look for color-blocking like this these. The vertical side panels frame the body and create an hourglass effect even when the wearer doesn’t have an hourglass shape. Black panels create negative space and make the midsection look slimmer.

Solid colors also draw attention away and can be slimming. If you’re looking to flaunt a feature, like your bust, wear a bright color or busy pattern in the area you’re looking to flaunt. To distract from an area, do the opposite.
