I realize this post was not meant to be inspirational, but can someone PLEASE tell me where on earth that swimsuit is from? I kind of love it. I would look nothing like this in it but I still want one! – TheFriskyFan
The heart wants what it wants, and if you want Farrah Abraham’s bathing suit, well, I’m not going to stop you. We happen to know exactly who makes Farrah’s sparkly, probably-not-waterproof swimsuit. It’s made by Poolside Collection by Karina Copado and it’s $240. You might notice that the Poolside Collection site has cropped out Farrah’s face. I’m guessing they don’t want the association.

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, of the long-running, as-many-children-as-kernels-of-popcorn show “19 Kids And Counting,” recently went on a beach vacay to Puerto Rico. But rather than wearing regular ol’ bathing suits, the couple opted for outfits from Wholesome Wear, a clothing line that offers modest alternatives to typical swimwear in three horrifying varieties — culotte, skirt and slimming. Culottes! Keep reading »
A swimsuit cover-up is a great addition to your beach or pool bag. Even if they don’t actually cover up that much of you, it’s nice to have a little something to throw on over your bikini to go grab a cool drink. Since your cover-up is guaranteed to get wet, sandy, and chlorinated, it’s best not to spend too much on it–let’s say $25, shall we? Here are 10 colorful cover-ups in a variety of styles and sizes that won’t break the bank. Click through to check ‘em out!
Summer is here and while we couldn’t be more excited about long weekends at the beach, the thought of getting into a swimsuit can be decidedly less appealing. Whether it’s pasty skin that isn’t ready for public exposure, or a New Year’s resolution of getting to the gym every day that didn’t quite happen, we are here to ease your worries.
Like most things in life, there is something for everyone. Whether you prefer a one-piece with a plunging V neck to show off your upper body, or you can’t wait to bare all in a teeny-weeny bikini, we are here with the right suit for your shape. And even if you’re still hesitant about getting into your suit, take heart, there are a multitude of ways to stay covered-up in style this summer.
Here, 13 tips on the right suit for you, as well as 27 celebrities showing off their stuff. Read more…
I don’t know about you, but being out in the sun for long stretches of time makes me very, very hungry. I would happily consider wearing a bikini that would both protect me from the sun and from hunger. So what if I can’t wear it while I swim? At least I won’t have to pack a sandwich. This pizzakini is perfect for poolside tanning and snacking — two of my favorite summer activities. Click through to see some more fabulous foodkinis. [The Clearly Dope]
You guys, I simply cannot stay silent for a moment longer. The cost of swimwear is too damn high! It’s. Too. Damn. High. I’m going to Mexico in a month so I’ve been on the hunt for a new bikini to bring with me and wear basically 24/7 while I’m there. But I am seriously appalled by how much swimwear designers are charging for these scant pieces of fabric. Who wants to spend $200 on something that is going to spend the majority of its time soaking in chlorine or salt water, chafing against sand, and fading in the sun? Who wants to spend $200 on something that is, for most of us, sort of depressing to shop for because it illuminates our unfair body image issues? NOT ME. AND NOT YOU. That’s why I am taking it upon myself to track down the best swimsuits in a variety of styles under $75, that way you still have money to spend on, you know, getting to the beach(or pool or lake or swimming hole) in the first place.
First up: bandeaus! This is my ideal bikini style because I really don’t like tanlines on my shoulders or chest — all of these bandeau tops (with matching/coordinating bottoms) come with a strap/straps that you can either untie or remove, that way you can still feel secure when you’re running through the waves. Click on to see what I’ve picked!
I’m going to Mexico at the beginning of May, so I’m starting to keep my eye peeled for a new swimsuit for my trip. I have yet to find a bikini that I really want, but I have come across a whole mess of swimsuits that would get me more than a few looks on the beach. It seems that some swimwear designers these days aren’t creatively inspired by simple batik prints or bright colors — no, they’re into the Animal Kingdom (and I don’t mean classic cheetah prints), bones, and body parts, amongst other non-traditional influences. You know … so edgy! Click on to see 17 swimsuits I simply do not have the balls to wear.

Purchasing a swimsuit is something that most women stress about at some point in their lives. It doesn’t help that every magazine on stands at this time of year has a headline that screams something containing the words “BIKINI BODY!!!!!!” What does that mean anyway? For the curvaceous among us, it can be a truly frustrating experience as cute options for the zaftig body type can be limited. For the bodacious ladies, here are 17 super cute swimsuits for busty, bootylicious, broads to rock on the beach this summer.
My bikini has been through the ringer — two summers ago, I learned how to surf in it; I wore it every weekend to the beach in Long Island the summer after; in December, I rocked it on a week-long vacation in Mexico. It’s so faded and stretched out that when I went to the beach this weekend and dove in the ocean to cool off, the bottoms were pulled almost entirely off by the force of the relatively small wave. It’s time for a new bikini (I prefer them to one-pieces) and preferably one that I can swim in. Here are 12 cute options that hopefully won’t leave me — or you — indecently exposed.
