With summer fresh upon us, selecting the perfect, form-fitting swimsuit requires the time and patience to try on and try out the latest and greatest. While my preference has always leaned toward Victoria Secret, look at these options and let us know what you think.

Shaping Swimsuits:

This is a perfect option for those who have a bit to hide in the tummy and hips as well as those who need a bit of help in the top. This swimsuit offers it all with flair of style as it highlights and adds the sexy curves that we all wish we had.

One-Shoulder Swimsuits

One-shoulder swimsuits are hardly new as a concept, though as with everything that cyclically emerges as a trend, the concept is infused with a fresh new take. With Luli Fama, the one-shoulder two piece that hit the runway was lightly pink, nearly nude, with a single shouldered top that featured a short sleeve on one side and a tie on the other, technically making it a string bikini. It was cute, fun and different.

Full Coverage Swimsuit:

This is a great choice for those who suffer with short torsos. This design of a flattering top takes full advantage of appearance. It allows the torso to be highlighted and draping into a longer torso. With basically full coverage front and bottom, the element of surprise is a fully open back. With the halter top and fully lined interior, the style and smooth lining add a dramatic beach effect.

Front Tied Swimsuits

Front tied bikinis are typically string bikinis, but can also be a part of tankinis and monokinis as well.

Crocheted Swimwear

Cute swimwear for the new season that was on par with several summer 2018 swimwear trends. Fun looks cover more than one trend is a crocheted tankini style top that laces up the V-neck.

Sexy One pieces

One pieces are not generally considered to be sexy, though options like T-Rivera and the Baywatch style swimsuits (which are revamped, of course) definitely break through. Most of the super sexy one pieces fall into at more than one of the above categories. The serious plunge of some of the necklines and cleverly placed cut outs on the one-piece swimsuit trends for summer 2018 are masterful.

Monokinis

Monokinis are one pieces that look like a bikini that is attached by a piece of fabric or latticework. This can be done on the front, crossed over or just on one or both sides.

Activewear Swimsuits

Activewear swimsuits include a lot of options. Swimwear showe off sporty style bralettes and amazing surfer gear. Evena cold-shoulder top. The zip-up options seem to perfectly fit the requirements as well.

Prints and Patterns

Not your mothers typical swim suit. Prints and funny saying abound.
