If the results of an informal office poll are any indication, there are few things, when it comes to clothing, that give women more anxiety than the swimsuit: First, there’s the process of weeding through the multitudes of possibilities, and then there’s the actual wearing of it. Finding the right suit—one that’s designed for your figure—can go a long way toward quieting that anxiety. We’ve done the weeding to find more than two dozen suits meant to flatter women with different body types: those with large chests, those with a tummy they want to camouflage, those with full hips and thighs, and those with straighter shapes. So let the sun shine—we’ll see you on the beach.
