Lands’ End Figure Flattering Swimsuits for Women Over 50

The unofficial beginning of summer is this weekend! The pools will open, and that means it is time to hit the water. I’m ready to enjoy the beach, pool, or lake in my Lands’ End figure flattering swimsuits and cover-ups for women over 50.

One Piece Lands’ End Figure Flattering Swimsuits

I love going to the beach; it is my happy place. Why would I want to sit in the room and look out the window when I can walk in the sand and put my toes in the water?

This High Neck to One Shoulder Multi Way One Piece Swimsuit in Violet Rose/Navy Ombre is beautiful and figure flattering. The darker shade at the lower part of the swimsuit helps to make my hips and stomach area fade into the background.

Tankini with Swim Skirt Lands’ End Figure Flattering Swimsuits

Navy and green are one of my favorite color combinations. Look how beautiful this outfit looks against the ocean waves and gorgeous blue sky. I’ve been looking for a long sleeve rash guard since I went to Belize last year. I burn easily, and getting a sunburn at the beginning of your vacation is a surefire way to ensure you have a miserable time. This Full Zip Long Sleeve Rash Guard has a UPF 50 fabric to help protect you from the sun and is also stylish. I’ll be wearing this with shorts all summer long.

Most tankinis are sold in separate pieces. You pick a top and a bottom, which works great if you need a larger or smaller size for each piece. I picked this tankini top with adjustable straps because I liked the solid navy stripe on the sides. That helps to make my waist look smaller. Unfortunately, this top has sold out, but I linked similar tankini tops above.

The bottom I chose for this outfit is a swim skirt. I like the feminine look, and the adjustable rushing on the side lets you select the length.

A cover-up is an essential part of a swimsuit. Walking through hotel lobbies, going to lunch, or just walking on the beach calls for a cover-up. I like one that is cute, has coverage, and can be worn later with shorts.

This striped kimono is super cute. The drawstrings at the waist let you adjust the fit, and I love the oversized sleeves.

I thought the stripes and polka dots looked cute together. This polka dot swimsuit top reminds me of vintage swimsuits. I love the print and the square neckline. I paired it with a navy retro high-waisted swim bottom instead of a swim skirt.

My goal is to encourage you to enjoy this summer with your family. Put on the swimsuit, dip your toes in the water, and enjoy the sunshine on your face.

  1. thanks for the tankini pics. I am longwaisted so I cannot find a one piece long enough. I sometimes wear the top like a tank with capris or jeans. I only wear shorts around the house. I love your posts!

  2. Beautiful suits! You look wonderful in all of them.
    Wish the first top wasn’t sold out. That would be my pick!

  3. Debbie Brown says:

    Love the bathing suits. They all look good on you.

  4. Swimsuits are the hardest thing to find a great fit. You nailed it. You look adorable in all of these swimsuits.

  5. Sue Quinn says:

    My swimsuits have all been Lands End for decades. They come in Tall which works for me. They last a long time too. Great suits.

  6. I love tankinis I am a large on top and a xxl on the bottom so this work’s good for me to mix and match

  7. All the swimsuits look great on you! I especially like the ombré one!

  8. I love all the swimsuits and you look so good in all of them. I wish I could look as good as you do. I wear a tankini type now, but I still feel uncomfortable wearing it at the beach or pool. I only go in my swimsuit for my water aerobics class. I’m trying to lose some poundage so I can go in the pool with my granddaughter. I have saved your article last year that you gave about swimsuits from Lily Pulitzer that were so flattering on you.

  9. For ladies who have large breasts, you can buy nice swimsuits that fit well on the Kohl’s website. Search by your cup and band size. Happy summertime! 😊☀️🏖️

  10. sue koren says:

    Lands end swim wear lasts forever too!

  11. These are all really flattering and cute suits!

  12. Can you recommend a tankini top for 36 G bust?
    You look great in all of the suits!!!

  13. Ginger Hiller says:

    You look nice in all of the swimsuits and the pictures are great! Just a reminder that Kohl’s carries some Lands End items, so you might find a swimsuit you like in the store near you.

  14. Adorable! Love the idea to use lighter color on the top and darker twords the middle and bottom to disguise my chubby middle!

  15. Love the ombre suit. The beach is always so refreshing and relaxing.

  16. Very nice. You look awesome!

  17. Thanks for the inspiration to get out there and take in the sunshine!

  18. I LOVE the pictures. Takes me back. The beach is my happy place as well.
    My favourite bathing suit is from Lands End. I dread the day it wears out lol. A little tougher for us Canadians to purchase with exchange rates and shipping to Canada and duty fees so it was a real investment purchase for me but I have certainly got value from the purchase.
    I love the tummy area fabric scrunching details, bra size underwire fitting and full coverage, along with stylish details so I don’t feel frumpy, that Lands End offers.

  19. Janice K Salz says:

    Curious, does a tanking top float up when you get in the water? I do water aerobics and am looking for a suit that has a swim skirt and top.
    Thank you!

    1. Janice, the tankini tops I’m wearing wouldn’t float up since they fit tighter like a normal swimsuit. There are tankini tops that are flowy, and those would probably float up.

  20. Cute swimsuits and love the coverups!

  21. Thanks for all the choices. I think my favorite is the ombré . Lands End has always been my go to for swimsuits.

  22. Just beautiful, I love all of the suits you modeled!

  23. I love Lands End suits, especially their slendersuits. The ombre suit is so cute and I think I need the kimono. Thanks for all the great choices.

  24. Lynnette Davis says:

    I really like the violet rose/navy swimsuit, and it looks very figure flattering! My issue with swimsuits is finding one that has complete coverage in the booty.

    1. That’s one of the reasons I like Lands’ End swimsuits, they have ample coverage.

  25. Praying for your husband that he gets better real soon. I love the swimsuits and would love a trip to the beach. I was wondering how do you keep your legs moisturized and smooth? Do you shave or use Nair hair removal ? I would love to hear some tips on How to have pretty summer legs after 60. Have a blessed day!

    1. Rhoda, I’ve found that as I get older, I don’t need to shave as often. I use La Roche-Posay Moisturizing cream 2x a day. This has helped me more than anything; I even have it set to auto ship to me monthly so I never run out.

  26. I just read hope in the holler. I loved it. Thank you for the recommendation. It is a terrific book. Thank your sister please for her good work! Has she written anything else?

    1. Kelly, I’m thrilled you loved the book. My sister amazes me; she is so talented. Hope in the Holler was her second book, Last in a Long Line of Rebels was her first one. She’s working on a third one, and I can’t wait to read that one too.

  27. Tammy Roark says:

    Love all your swimsuits!!

    1. Thanks! I loved them too!
