Has this ever happened to you? You try on a bathing suit at the store, and think it fits great (or at least as great as a bathing suit can fit). But when you actually wear the suit to the pool, you realize the fit isn’t right: It won’t stop riding up in the back.
Bathing suits can ride up in the back for a number of reasons: The bottom may be too small or too big; the torso could be too short; the elastic could be stretched out; or the bottom may be cut too high.
To make sure you’ve actually put on the correct size, do a few lunges in the dressing room. If the size seems correct but the bottom still rides up, select a style with a lower leg line. If the bathing suit stays in place, you’ve found a winner.
Now check out our detailed guide to finding the best suit style for your body type.
