Best Bathing Suits for Women Over 60

Best Bathing Suits for Women Over 60

BeachCandy swimwear has grown into a world class luxury swimsuit destination since opening its beachfront boutique in Newport Beach, California in 2011. For most of our first decade in business, BeachCandy was a custom swimsuit sanctuary. The brand’s intent was always to provide extreme support and comfortability for every woman’s needs. Our founder, BritB's motto has always been “You deserve to shine, and I am going to do whatever it takes to get you there.” 

After just one year of business, we were chosen as Editor’s Pick in Sports Illustrated, featured on E! News, and even had the opportunity to work with The Real Housewives of Orange County. 

With high quality fabrics, intricate stitching, and our signature Swarovski crystal candy detailing, you are guaranteed to feel beautiful the moment you put one of our swimsuits on, no matter your age or size. Our American-made swimsuits create the best fit overall for all women, which is why we decided to curate a list of our favorite bathing suits for women over 60 years old. Today, we continue to pursue BeachCandy Swimwear’s dream -- A dream that all women deserve to feel their absolute best in a swimsuit.

ELYSIA Slimming One Piece Swimsuit

This is a classy, timeless piece that is the perfect go-to for those poolside family vacations. Our Elysia one piece provides support, coverage, and plenty of sophistication. Our Swarovski beading on the straps adds just the right amount of glamour. The slightly higher cut on the leg creates an elongating effect and the lower cut back adds an extra touch of allure. Best of all, the ruching at the waist gives your body a slimmer, more contoured appearance.

Our KIMBERLY Full Coverage Bikini Bottoms provide the perfect amount of hugging at the hips without cutting into them. This leaves a seamless and flattering look. The adjustable waistband allows for them to be worn high or low waisted, making them suitable for any level of comfort. 

Our NILO Underwire Bikini Top is the perfect pairing for these bottoms. This top provides extreme comfort and support. Its full coverage was especially designed for larger busted women.

When you're done with the water, but not ready to change into regular clothes, a cover up is the perfect solution to provide you with protection from the sun and/or chill as well as some extra modesty. Here are a couple of suggestions, but we have so many other styles in our cover up collection, you're sure to find the perfect one for you.
