17 Perfect Bathing Suits for Athletic Body Types

Shopping for swimsuits isn’t the easiest task for any of Us. If you’re looking for flattering fits, you have to know your body type in order to select the right swimwear. If you’re lucky enough to have an athletic build, it can still be challenging to find what you want!

Athletic body types are typically super fit and toned with muscular arms and narrow hips. Swimsuits with thicker straps, one-shoulder silhouettes, high-cut bottoms and cutouts are likely to be the most complementary options. While the most important thing is feeling fabulous in your swimwear, looking good doesn’t hurt. If that’s your goal, we’ve rounded up 17 suits that are sure to stun on an athletic frame. Read on for more!
