I know, I know, swimsuit shopping is the worst. Summer isn't over year, and for those going on vacation in September, here are some tips for to make it a little easier to find a Made in USA swimsuit.
I think I have the same conversation with friends about finding a new bathing suit every single year. It's always good to be able to laugh at the situation though. I remember the time I ordered a “large” swimsuit that came in the mail looking as if it were a size large for a toddler. I tried that suit on, and had a GREAT laugh with my closest friends. We pull out the photos every so often when we want to get into a laughing fit where you can hardly breathe.
Don't worry, your search for the best swimsuit for women ends here. When you find yourself getting frustrated, remember these four simple tips to get you through your shopping experience

Four Tips to Finding the Best (American Made) Bathing Suit Fit
SUPPORT YOUR GIRLS
FLAUNT YOUR WAIST
High waisted suits have been in for a while now. If you have a longer torso, this is a perfect style for you. It really pulls in your mid- and lower-section, showing off your waistline. Sorella Swim's Marilyn Bikini Swim Top and Bottom (sold individually) are great because the bottom of the bikini highlights the waist, while the top of the bikini provides support for your girls with a thick under bust band.
MINIMIZE YOUR WAISTLINE
SUCK IT IN
No, not literally. The Magicsuit will do it for you. The suit is designed to make you look 10 lbs smaller, and it really does. The fabric is a bit thicker, and more elastic, than many other options. Great fabric makes a difference, especially when you're carrying a few extra pounds. The Magicsuit ‘Yvonne’ Halter One-Piece Swimsuit is perfect for hiding any belly budge you might have because it’s shirred. It really does suck you in and makes your torso look smaller.
SAY BUH-BYE TO BACK FAT
Swoom Swimwear is so well made, and almost all of their suits are reversible, so it's like buying two suits for the price of one. The devil is in the details with these bikinis. The bikini bottom is complete with a scrunch detail and the edges are soft, meaning no pinching around the waist. The racerback bikini top is lined and lightly padded, and hits right at the waist in the back to hide any back fat.
I’m looking specifically for a one-piece fitness swim suit, with light lining, no padding. Indoor lap swimming. Any recommendations?
Thanks for sharing all these tips. The Miraclesuit ‘Jena’ One-Piece Swimsuit looks perfect!
So many options to choose from! I can’t wait to try one of these gorgous suits out in the summer! I will definitely be purchasing one soon! It will just take me awhile to pick the one I like best!
Still love the Miraclesuit best!
I am not crazy about shopping for swimsuits. I do like the Magicsuit ‘Yvonne’ Halter One-Piece Swimsuit and the others are nice too.
My favorite for made in USA suits is Popina Swimwear in Portland, Oregon. They have a style for every body type, and plenty of color options for each of their patterns.
The last time I bought a suit it was online, and it didn’t fit too small, exchanged for next size up, too big! But knowing these are made in the USA makes me feel like looking again, and these are so cute!
I really love the Miraclesuit: Network Jena Wire-Free One-Shoulder Swimsuit. The one shoulder is really sexy!
I absolutely ADORE Calavera swimsuits! http://calaveraswimwear.com/
They are stylish AND functional. I’m not a surfer, but I do a fair amount of wake surfing, etc. and I love that they stay put, but aren’t frumpy. Highly, highly recommend!
I usually dread shopping for a swimsuit, but the Miraclesuit ‘Jena’ One-Piece Swimsuit looks like it would be perfect. Thanks so much for sharing!!
