Looking for the The Best Black Bathing Suits for a Pear Shaped Body? These classic black swim suits are a total summer must have!
Ok, spring break is here. And that means it's officially swim suit season. After I wrote a blog post a couple of weeks back about the best bathing suits for a pear shaped body under $50, I got a ton of requests for something a little more specific……..black bathing suits. They're a summer staple right? As much as I love a great brightly colored swimsuit, a great fitting black bathing suit is something you'll own for YEARS.
To me, a great fitting black bathing suit for a pear shaped body is worth investing in. My favorites? I'll be wearing for years to come.
Best Black Bathing Suits for a Pear Shaped Body
There are a million black bathing suits out there……..but a lot of them? Sort of shapeless and unflattering looking. While I want a black bathing suit, I don't want one that just HIDES the body (trust, I tried those right after having Lydia and they looked TERRIBLE). When you're on the hunt for a black bathing suit for a pear shaped body……the same tips apply as any other bathing suit. You want to draw the eyes up, and draw attention to your smaller waist. So baggy at the waist? NOT FLATTERING. Think pretty necklines, ruffles, ruching at the top and on your upper torso……and a simple, clean fitted bottom section. Also, avoid boy shorts, they'll cut your legs off and make them look wider. I always look for a simple, not too highly cut leg and fairly full coverage in the rear.
Off the Shoulder Swim Suit
I'm not gonna lie, a great off the shoulder swim suit is my FAVORITE for a pear shaped body. This amazing one from Eberjey is comfortable, and SUPER flattering. I love that the ruffled sleeves balance out a wider lower half, and feel super feminine. Bonus? The top is lined, has great support, and fits like a dream. It's worth EVERY PENNY. Pair it with a great coverup and you're set for stylish days at the pool or beach. You can even layer it with a cute skirt for dinners on summer vacations.

Scalloped Swim Suit
My first swim suit this year? Remember the amazing Kate Spade Suit I bought back in January? (yes, the one that some mom gave me the side when I wore it to the pool!) The scalloped top is just adorable, and I love that the pretty design draws the eye upward. This particular suit comes with detachable straps, and I love how versatile it is!
