17 Unique Bathing Suits That Will Get You Pumped To Shed The Layers
Much like finding the perfect pair of jeans, finding the perfect swimsuit is a nearly impossible feat that will test all your limits until you think you're going to burst in your underpants in a dressing room that looks like the swim section exploded in it. But instead of getting discouraged, and just giving up hope overall, it’s important to do some research before you go out and really start your hunt for a summer ensemble that has to endure a vacation, road trip, and occasional pool outing.
Thankfully, this summer’s styles aren’t your typical, boring LBB (little black bikini) or bright floral one-pieces. Stores and online shops are actually becoming quite innovative with their swimsuit designs, from including laser cut detailing to incorporating sheer fabric and lace lining. So, no longer is your swimsuit restricted to just sun and water! It can also be paired with your favorite wardrobe pieces.
Here are 17 unique swimsuits that are guaranteed to rock your summer and beyond.
Sometimes it’s almost like bathing suits compete against each other to see which can reveal yet conceal the most. If it actually was a competition, this bathing suit would win. Although it’s a single swimsuit, it’s quite daring because of the strategically placed appliques. That being said, it’s also fun and flirty and would make for a perfect companion for a day on the beach.
Bright and Athletic
Everyone loves a bright bikini. And when it’s lined with black like this one, it’s even better. This bikini with extra support is a pretty coral color and would fit in perfectly with a colorful summer wardrobe.
This top shouldn’t only be limited to the beach, the pool, or really any of your summer plans. Because neoprene is such a popular fabric these days, this cropped top would look as good paired with a flowing maxi skirt as with a matching black bikini bottom. It will keep you stylish and on trend for summer and many seasons to come.
Who says you can’t incorporate a little lace into your swimsuit? This one-piece defines your waist with two chevron stripes in a floral black lace, in addition to supporting your chest area with a halter top. It’s got everything you need, and that extra detail that makes it leagues prettier than your basic, average black one-piece.
Printed With Lace
A plunging neckline, black lace, and a floral print? This swimsuit is guaranteed to be your new favorite. With extra support and girly details, this one-piece is a classic fit and form that’s sure to last you years beyond your first summer together.
Off The Shoulder
If there’s anything Bridgette Bardot taught us, it’s that a little shoulder action provides infinite amounts of allure, as does this Bardot-inspired one-piece. Besides its flirty shape, its blue and white polka-dot pattern also makes this suit chic for the beachside or great for pairing with shorts for drinks on the water.
Black mesh on a swimsuit? Say it ain’t so! This swimsuit top can be your favorite on beach outfit as well as your favorite off beach crop top. The sheer neckline and black lining is guaranteed to make a splash at your next summer outing.
Wearing this python print swim top won’t turn you into a cold-blooded animal, but the compliments you’ll get while wearing it will warm you up. With extra long halter straps that form around the bust, this top is absolutely gorgeous and easily paired under a low cut shirt or dress.
You’re always welcome to reach for the stars, and this swimsuit will let you do that even from the comfort of a beautiful beach. Galaxy printed clothing items have been everywhere, but this neoprene swimsuit is especially different since stars and comets are so unexpected when you’re wading in water.
Sheer and Banded
Another wardrobe-like swimsuit is this black, banded sheer version. Although it’s quite covered up, the sheer fabric and black netting is undeniably sexy. This swimsuit isn’t necessarily only for the beach, because it would look just as pretty paired with denim cutoffs or even a formal skirt and heels. No matter your summer vacation plans, this suit will surely be your partner in crime.
While you’re better off leaving your fancy jewelry at home (it’s almost impossible to find anything in the sand), why not invest in a bikini with jewelry-inspired detailing? This “Necklace Tank” provides support with a gold choker that adorns your neck, just like your favorite statement necklace.
This laser cut bandeau top is customizable to give you the best fit to feel comfortable in for a day at the beach, so you can leave the straps straight or cross them for better support. Very sea shell-inspired, you’ll feel right at home in this suit with the sand in your toes.
Whether you’re a surfer or not, this swimsuit is undeniably pretty and detailed for the one-piece it is. With long sleeves, a girly sweetheart neckline, and even a defined waist, it’s unique and gorgeous for on and off the sand.
Goes With Everything
When shopping for bikinis, it’s common to love a top and not be too crazy about the matching bottom, or vice versa. To get rid of all those troubles, invest in a pretty, colorful top like this to match almost every bottom you might already own. Whether it’s a solid color or another print, a bright mixture of shades like this top will look great with plenty of bottoms.
