Memorial Day is next weekend! Along with family barbeques, festive parades and theme park adventures, for many of us the Memorial Day weekend also means the dreaded unveiling of… the swimsuit.

Have you had children? Are you over 40? Neglected your workout regimen during the hectic winter months? Or, maybe — like me — all three?

Fear not! This summer, there are realistic options for those of us searching for a modest, but stylish swimsuit that will make us feel confident and beautiful.

The three key things to look for in a great swimsuit? Detail, color and fit.

For example, the three one-piece swimsuits I’ve showcased above all offer interest at the neckline, which draws attention away from the midriff, thighs, and hips.

And, forget boring black! Instead, opt for your favorite color. Whether it’s a feminine pastel or a bolder choice, color is a guaranteed mood-booster!

Finally, fit is crucial. Short-waisted? Large bust? Sloped shoulders? The proper fit can correct all these issues – and more! It’s important to try not to get hung up on size; instead choose the swimsuit that is the most flattering (and simply cut out the size tag!).

If these three selections don’t inspire you, I also found a vast number of beautiful suits at Talbots and (believe it or not!) Victoria’s Secret.

Add a sassy sarong and some fabulous new sandals and you’re ready for a day of fun in the sun. Enjoy!
