Best Swimsuits for Women Over 50

Best Swimsuits for Women Over 50


While we support a Hermoza who wants to keep things classy, no one ever expects you to don a mumu at the beach just because you’re aging gracefully. Your impeccable taste can effortlessly transition to some serious boardwalk vibes with these simple tips curated specifically for women who are looking for an alternative to the basic, boring list of typical, off-the-rack swimsuits for 50-year olds. Check out how to pick the best swimsuit for women over 50 and find the right look for you.


Best Swimsuit for Your Body Type


You gotta go with what works, and that gut feeling your mama gave you is your guide to knowing what suits you best. Finally getting to hit the waves and the sand after a long winter shut in needs to be your priority this Spring, not where, when, and how to readjust that ill-fitting swimsuit. For women over 50, nothing changes – you want to feel free and fabulous, no exceptions. Choose a style of swimsuits that gives you options and lets you adjust as necessary.



Every piece in Hermoza’s swimwear collections offer full-coverage and maximum style. An ideal bathing suit for women over 50 is our Genevieve. Love by Elle Magazine and Oprah in O as a perfect swimsuit for all body types, this is our go-to for every Hermoza and for every occasion. Well-suited from our Movement Collection, this chic take on a classic halter will have you going mad for its cinched waist sash and built-in shelf bra for added support and lift. And don’t get us going about the fabric! Made from luxurious imported Italian fabric that feels like a second skin, the Genevieve is your best bet as a bathing suit for women over 50 for the simple fact that she’ll have you covered while showing off an elegant neckline and tasteful, contoured waistline. 


Bottom line: If you gotta ask, it might not be right for you. But, when you know, you know. Trust it.


Best Swimsuits for that Over 50 Lifestyle


After asking our favorite women over 50 what they look for in swimsuits and bathing suits, we found a common thread in every comment.


Linda’s Thoughts: “I need to feel comfortable. There is no point in me planning a fun day for the family if I feel miserable in what I am wearing. I like to stay moving, so I need something that stays in place.”


Sylvia’s Thoughts: “I love a suit that is just a little bit showy but isn’t gratuitous. At my age, I have no interest in covering it all up though. I am proud of my mom bod because I know it is strong and I like to get some sun. My style shows that I love who I am and how I look while keeping it all tasteful.”


Gita’s Thoughts: “When I am traveling, I need to count on my suits to be flexible and durable. I live in my swimwear and I want something that looks great on me and that also has details or textures that are one-of-a-kind.”


Women of every age want to be confident in the skin they are in and feel like they are comfortable. Self-acceptance is more than just liking who you are and for women over 50, nothing changes. Studies have shown that women who protect themselves from negative criticism while believing in their inherent and learned capacities rely less on things outside themselves to define them. Your wardrobe is an expression of your best self, not a cabinet of trends and expectations you feel compelled to embody. Just like any other piece in your collection, swimwear for women over 50 can be held to the same standards – keep it fashionable, seek a flattering fit, and be conscious with items that are sustainable, ecofriendly, or heirloom quality.




Each of our Hermozas, with all their strong and bold energies would look stunning in our Elizabeth one piece in Bardot Stripe. A divine boatneck contrasting style that serves up classic black against a vintage-inspired vibrant striped print, the Elizabeth is well-suited for the Hermoza who is spending the day deck side or for the Hermoza who just wants to relax and breathe in her posh, poolside cabana. Either way, you’ll get awesome sun protection along with flattering tummy control courtesy of our luxurious, Italian novelty fabric that offers delightful, moderate support. Ideal for almost every body type (athletic, heart, pear, post-baby), the Elizabeth is your new BFF for all those springtime plans.


The Perfect Swimsuits for Women over 50


No matter your age, you want to know you look great in your OOTD. With swimwear, women over 50 need not be concerned because timeless, sophisticated style is always in fashion. There’s no need to force yourself into fleetingly cool when you’ve got chic and distinctive, vintage-inspired one- and two-piece suits you can count on. Your thoughts on bathing suits for 50-year olds will never be the same again.



  • Our Marilyn one piece swimsuit in navy blue is any Hermoza’s dream. Thoughtfully constructed with a ruching detail along and across the waistline, this swim/body/playsuit is everything a woman in her 50s needs to prove she’s still got it. Another fully adjustable halter after our own hearts, complete with exquisite light compression shapewear that contours and flatters your natural figure, the Marilyn’ll take your red-carpet visions straight to the sand or country club. Throw on some sunnies and an oversized woven hat, and you’re all set for an iconic day anywhere.



  • The Marisa is a fresh take on a classic silhouette in a bright color. Perfect for every Hermoza, not just for women over 50, this swimsuit is everything you need to showcase a cool, relaxed confidence that never stops. You already know what you’re working with, so why not sport a suit that is as sophisticated and chic as you are. This square neck tank has adjustable straps and a built-in bra for additional support and a light lift. Now available in berry from our Sculpt Collection, swimwear meets shapewear for gorgeous contouring and definition in a structure support we can all show up for.



  • The Debra is more than you could ever hope for with her ever so cool basketweave pattern and fully adjustable waistline belt. Perfect for women in their 50s with longer torsos, the Debra’s tasteful open back is everything you need to catch some serious rays without having to bear it all. Available with UPF 50+ protection in a luxurious Italian jacquard fabric, this fully lined classic cut will have you making all your 2020 plans for all the beaches and all the resorts just to show her off.



  • You’re not one thing, and neither is your swimwear. For women in their 50s, nothing says luxury like heirloom quality pieces that can do it all. The Bridget (available in black and in fuchsia) can take your beachside vibes straight to brunch with fuller coverage, a cap sleeve style, and a scoop back that is perfect on its own, under a sarong, or beneath a pair of fitted denims. Structured, yet soft, the Bridget serves up some serious sculpted realness for added support and a youthful shape.


Our Hermozas over 50 like to keep things fun and fresh without being told how to make life happen. We trust their instincts and know that their commitment to chic, distinctive style is everything we need to stay inspired through this Winter to Spring transition.
