I do a lot of bathing suit browsing, but I have yet to replace my worn out swimsuits. Ever notice how some pool decks and bottoms have a grainy finish leaving your swimsuit bottom with a patch of snags? My favorite one piece is suffering from scuffled butt. If you too are in the market for a one-piece, try one of these suits for under $40!
In the summer, I love to do everything outside. I would happily soak up the sun at the beach, pool or park all day long, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve become more aware of the sun’s negative effects. Even my olive skin tone can’t handle a full day under the cloudless sky and the most vulnerable areas on my shoulders and chest can’t get enough SPF. Last year, I discovered rashguards, so instead of running for cover at the first signs of a burn, I can now toss one on and sip iced tea as I lazily float around the pool.
I don’t know about you, but I love me a high-waist bikini. The perfect way to camouflage annoying love handles while highlighting the waist. This year’s offering of high-waist bikinis include styles ranging from vintage to futuristic. Some of my favorites feature the beautiful abstract, geometric, and photorealistic prints I have been lusting after all spring. Check these 12 out!
Year after year we see the same triangle, bandeau and halter bikinis packing the beach and laying poolside. I appreciate a classic bathing suit, but really? Isn’t it time for a change? Try mixing it up this year with one of these new bikini shapes. Although, don’t say I didn’t warn you about the fab tan lines!
The sharkini, inspired perhaps by a certain Ian Ziering-helmed SyFy movie thriller, is a bathing suit that send a vital message: Be careful in the water, okay? The Sharkini retails for around a $100, but its value as a walking PSA is priceless. [Store Envy]
Apparently, the designer of this swimsuit, Bad Aby Designs, ripped off another designer’s swimsuit — trademarked as the “Sharkini” — and is now in the process of changing the name of the suit. You can find the ORIGINAL Sharkini here.
I know you think it’s 2013, but as far as the fashion universe is concerned, we’re already living in the future. It’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for swimwear, and designers have been showing their swimsuit collections for summer 2014. Basically, this is all the stuff you’ll be seeing in Urban Outfitters next year. And the consensus? Everybody’s going to be rocking some pretty insane tan lines, if these looks are any indication. We soldiered through and looked at all the suits, and selected some of the crazier silhouettes for next season. Check ‘em out.
