Now, I can’t speak for all (or any) other petite women, but I for one am very conscious of my height. While I rarely find that there are many things I truly can’t wear, within every category, I do know that there are brands, cuts, and styles that simply flatter my body better than others. And regardless of whether something is trendy or a brand is buzzy, I prefer to stick to pieces that do make me feel my best and complement my height rather than stunt it.
With that in mind, I thought I would share the swimsuit styles I not only love and recommend for this season but those which, at 5’2”, I would actually wear myself. Whether it’s a brand I’ve been wearing for years, a recent successful purchase, or simply a suit that, after much experience, I can just tell has that perfect fit, below you’ll find 26 bikinis and one-pieces I’m either wearing, buying, or eyeing for the months ahead. To get started shopping (and reading my two cents on each), just keep scrolling.
