These swimsuits for women over 40 are universally flattering. And the best part? Every suit is under $30 and better quality than some suits that over $100! Some of the suits even have tummy control. And the best suit – which looks good on every woman I’ve seen wear it – is under $20. Which is your favorite?

I just got back from a beautiful vacation in Hawaii! It was a wonderful trip and I’ll be sharing the highlights soon, but I was so excited about this trip that I did something that I absolutely hate to do: I bought some new swimsuits!

Is there anything more humbling than trying on a batch of swimsuits in a department store fitting room? The lights seem designed to highlight every bit of cellulite and every sagging body part. So, I decided to forego that horrible experience and instead I ordered a selection of suits to try from Amazon.

I ordered six swimsuits in a variety of colors and styles and I love you guys so much that I’m sharing what I look like in each of the swimsuits I tried. Spoiler alert: not every suit was perfect for me so this was a humbling experience. But they were all great quality and would be perfect for someone. And here’s the best part: each suit I tried was under $30. In fact, my absolute favorite swimsuit, that I think would be perfect for almost any woman, no matter your weight or body shape, was $16.99!

Here’s my real life swimsuit try on. Which one is right for me, do you think?

Inspired by my experience, I found 20 more highly-rated swimsuits for women over 40 on Amazon that have great reviews and look great on the women who tried them. Which suit is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!

Geometric Crossover One Piece Swimsuit

This suit has a tummy control panel that really works! And I know it looks good on all types of bodies because I saw two different women wearing this suit on my trip! Order a size larger than you normally wear.

High Waisted Tassel Bikini

Not the best look for me, although I think in a larger size and darker color I could have loved it. This swimsuit has over 200 five-star reviews on Amazon and looks awesome on women with larger bodies. Just check out this glowing comment:

LOVE this suit. Comfortable and super flattering. I’m 5’9″, 155 lbs. Got a size 8.

Plunging Retro One Piece

I wanted to try a few suits that took me out of my comfort zone and this one is way past anything I’ve ever dared to even try on before. And yet I liked it! This suit has plenty of fabric to cover what needs to be covered and fits true to size.

Vintage High-Waisted Swimsuit

This suit has really good reviews on Amazon, but a few reviews mentioned the same issue I had with it: the sizing is a little off for me. I ended up with a size XL (fits like a U.S. 8-10) in order to fit my top and the bottoms were really way too big for me. From the review pictures, though, it’s obvious that this suit is really flattering on bodies of all shapes and sizes.

One Piece High Neck Swimsuit

Here’s the Holy Grail of swimsuits – I have never seen anyone look bad in this suit. And the cost is only – wait for it! – $16.99! 16.99! This suit has mesh panels in front and back and flattering ruching around the waist to help disguise any tummy issues.

I got this suit in the beautiful Rose Red seen here and in Black and love them both. However, I did find that I needed to size up as the Medium was just a bit too tight. The Large, though, fit perfectly.
