Winter in Canada is in full effect, which means it may be time to start planning your next sunny escape. If you're on the hunt for a vacation-ready swimsuit, one shopper-approved style may be worth adding to your next Nordstrom order.
Hundreds of Nordstrom reviewers swear by the La Blanca Island Goddess One-Piece Swimsuit (shop it in Canada here, shop it in the U.S. here), which boasts a minimalist design that flatters a range of different sizes and body types.
Like the little black dress of swimwear, this one-piece has all the makings of a classic swimsuit that you can turn to again and again. It features a scoop neckline, adjustable straps and moderate coverage through the hips and bum.
What makes this swimsuit stand out from other one-pieces is its ruched bodice, which helps to smooth and flatter your midsection. In Canada this swimsuit comes in three colours, while American shoppers can find five shades in sizes 2 though 16.
What people are saying
Shoppers of all shapes and sizes have been impressed by this La Blanca swimsuit, as well as a range of ages. It's received a 4.5-star rating based on more than 450 customer reviews, with shoppers calling it "extremely flattering."
"Quite surprisingly this suit was both flattering and supportive. Even without an underwire of molded cups it kept everything in place," shared one reviewer who noted that they "typically look for suits that are sold by cup size" due to their size 42F bust.
"I'm 64, 5' 3" and 135 lbs and busty. This suit fits beautifully. It is flattering, sexy with the high leg cut and covers the bust area attractively," shared another.
Others raved that the ruching on this swimsuit helped to camouflage their "trouble spots," and is a great choice if you're looking to feel "confident and cute."
"The neckline doesn't show cleavage, the bottom covers and doesn't ride up, the ruching is pretty and conceals a few extra bulges around my midsection, and the soft cups give just enough support," reads one review.
Some shoppers with a long torso found that this swimsuit didn't fit quite right, however they suggested sizing up in order to get more coverage through the chest.
"I have a long torso and trouble finding one piece suits that fit correctly. Although this is a lot better than most, it is still a bit short and has a deeper plunge in the neckline. Perhaps try ordering one size up for more coverage," suggested one reviewer.
Nordstrom shoppers say that the La Blanca Island Goddess One-Piece Swimsuit is a solid choice for your next winter getaway. It offers a flattering cut with thoughtful details like ruching and adjustable straps to help find your perfect fit. If you're on the tall side or carry some extra weight around your midsection, reviewers do recommend sizing up for comfort.
The swimsuit is known to sell out quickly, with certain sizes already low in stock. If you plan on picking one up for yourself, be sure to shop it before it's gone!
