Our ModStylists Help You Find Your New Favorite Swimsuit

Memorial Day is coming up this weekend and that means one thing: beach season is right around the corner. We couldn’t be more excited. From sunning on the shore to competitive games of volleyball, spending a day at the water’s edge ranks right up there with barbeques and making homemade ice cream as a favorite summertime activity.

But what to wear? If you’re on the hunt for a stand-out new swimsuit, our ModStylists are here to help. Check out how they styled a few of our fab ModEmployees below, and be sure to shop our full selection of swimwear.


Katie: This beautiful teal one-piece features subtle details like ruching, ruffles, and stripes and flatters all proportions. The addition of a skirt-like ruffle at the bottom adds elegance to the silhouette.


Shelby: Choose a suit in a pastel hue — like this lovely lavender number — for a pop of bright color against darker skin. The side ruching is oh-so-flattering, while the tie-neck straps allow you to adjust for the support you need.


Mary-Ellen: Don’t shy away from prints! Bring out your inner wild thing in a figure-flattering one piece that will keep you looking chic and feeling comfortable for anything the day may have in store.


Rachel: A high-waisted bikini in modern black-and-white stripes hugs all the right curves. Prints and patterns make a statement on the sand while the retro silhouette allows you to move freely.

    Why is every suit with the non-thin girl described as “flattering”, as if thats the only aspect that matters when you’re bigger.

      I’m so sorry the article came across this way, Janey! By no means do we consider “flattering” the only determining factor regarding fit with a curvier figure. We want swimsuits and all clothing alike to be figure-flattering, no matter the individuals’ size 🙂 – <3 ModStylist Kelsey
