So I’m headed to Ibiza next week to indulge in a bit of music festival fun (post to come)!
And while I can’t wait to splash around in the sea and sand, my mind is always on one thing: wardrobe.
Summer means sexy swimsuits, and the more options, the better!
Get a head start on your poolside fly with this shopping guide.
Been up in the gym, working on your fitness? Go for daring in a cute ‘kini.
We hand selected a fun assortment of triangle tops, cut out options, and mixed and matched separates:
3. Rash Guards
Squeamish about your arms? Want a bit more upper body coverage? A rash guard is basically the new tankini, made popular, no doubt, by Beyonce’s Shape Magazine cover. If you want to try the surfer’s staple, get the look with these:
One piece swimsuits are always a safe bet, and they’re suddenly sexy thanks to spreads like the ones featuring Solange Knowles above. Make your one piece interesting by wearing one with bright colors or a graphic print.

5. For the Busty Girls
As you know, I’m quite top heavy, so buying off the rack doesn’t really work for me. Over the years, I’ve come to cling to brands like Vix, Freya, and Malia Mills, because they offer tops that come in cup sizes (Freya goes up to an F cup!).
6. For the Donkalicious
High waisted bottoms that are cut high will make you look your leanest and longest. If you’d like to conceal your stallion booty, mix and match, wearing darker colors on the bottom, lighter colors on the top.
Find a few high waisted and dark bottoms below:
7. For the Plus Sized Set
From Monif C to ASOS Curve to Rue 107 and GabiFresh‘s line for Swimsuits For All (get it here), there are more choices than ever for those with a little more meat on their bones.
Aside from perusing the sites mentioned above, take your pic of these pieces from various online retailers:
