The Island Goddess Lingerie one-piece by La Blanca caught our eye because it has a pared-down minimalist design that's so figure-flattering on every body shape. The one piece features adjustable straps, removable padded cups, and shirring around the middle to give the illusion of a slimmer waist.
"To me, this is the perfect looks-great-on-everyone silhouette," says HELLO! Online Senior Lifestyle Editor Karen Silas. "It's deceptively simple, but has subtle details so that it camouflages the areas that you might be more self conscious about at the beach or poolside - but without sacrificing style.
"I love the nice shirring on the bodice to play down your tummy area and the higher-cut back. Plus the adjustable straps for a tailored fit - and to boost your bustline if you need to!"
Available in a range of sizes from 2-16 at Nordstrom, and up to 22 on the official La Blanca Swimwear site, the chic swimsuit also comes in several different colors – Coral, Ocean, Azul and Tangerine are all on sale at Nordy's right now.
If you're an Amazon fan, check out the sale prices on the retailer to see if your fave style is discounted. Pricing varies by style and colorway but we found some great deals for as low as $39.90!
So whether you like your swimsuits in deep tones or bold brights, there's something to suit everyone. And the sleek black version, which we're calling the ultimate swimwear LBD, isn't on sale but is still a great choice.
The style is a big hit with shoppers – it has a 4.8-star average on the official La Blanca site. We read all the reviews, and one of the most repeated words with verified shoppers is "flattering".
"SO Flattering!" said one Nordstrom reviewer. "I have really been struggling to find a bathing suit that i feel confident and comfortable in and this one checks every box! I absolutely LOVE it!! I wouldn’t pay attention to any of the negative comments about quality. I find it to be perfect quality, especially for the price range. Highly recommended!!
Another wrote, "I love this bathing [suit], have it in black and olive. I bought it in sizes 4 & 6 but were too tight although the ones I’ve had for a while now are those sizes and fit great. I’ve put on weight and could go for an 8 but don’t need it now so I’ll wait till I lose to extra lbs. I am 5’2” and 135 lbs. I am busty and don’t even need the pads. The bathing suit is very flattering and I highly recommend it."
The swimsuit also is loved by a variety of ages and sizes. One verified shopper who is also a new mom called it a “great, not so basic basic”. “Flattering, not frumpy, love it!”
Another wrote: "I ordered this swimsuit in black and cinnamon — and am keeping both! This is my favorite, go-to swimsuit. It’s great for all ages (my mom and I both have this one!)."
