Over the years, I’ve collected a good number of swimsuits. As a fashion boutique owner and South
Florida native, I’ve become a self-proclaimed swimsuit connoisseur. Yet, no matter how many swimsuits
I amass, I’m always likely to pick out the same ones over and over again. Why? Because they’re super
flattering of course!

Below, I’ve narrowed down my extensive collection down to 6 swimsuits you should own this summer.
From off the shoulder tops, to high-wasted bottoms, all six silhouettes are timeless. Consider these six
pieces your forever swimsuits.


Top: $115
Bottoms: $96
We’ve never met an off-the-shoulder bikini top we didn’t like. And with this tropical printed Vitamin A set, the forecast is always sunny.

Top-Knot Detail

Top: $99
Bottoms: $79
Vacay the right way with this L*Space bikini. The knitted bikini contains a decorative knot detail with a scoop neck at the top, making it the perfect combination of trendy, flattering and feminine.

Ruffle Accents

Top: $88
Bottoms: $78
Ruffles on swimwear is a great way to take an ordinary swimsuit to extraordinary. Not only do the ruffles on this Montce Swim bikini add a playful element to it, but they also add an extra flair.


We all need a suit that can take us from the pool or beach to wherever else we want to go. Lucky for you, this Vitamin A one-piece is that suit. Simply pair it with some denim shorts or a flowy skirt, and it’ll double up as a bodysuit.

High Waisted

Top: $138
Bottoms: $82
Like a black tee, a high-waited bikini bottom is something you should always have stocked away. Regardless of your shape or size, this cut is flattering on everyone as it squeezes everything in—a plus when you might be worried about your beach bod—and gives the illusion of longer legs.


Top: $95
Bottoms: $88
As you approach the pool in this black mesh L*Space bikini, all eyes will be fixed on you. Yes, it’s daring, but it still gives you the necessary coverage. Trust me, it’ll be your poolside version of the LBD.
