The best Lilly Pulitzer bathing suits are really the best ones for you. Women thick in the waist but with nice shoulders might want to consider a halter-top bikini or one-piece, as these styles tend to be the most flattering for women with thicker waists.

In addition to cut, color is important when selecting the best Lilly Pulitzer bathing suits.
