Celebrate summertime and get everyone a new swimsuit, including you! Here are our top picks for the best swimwear for the summer of 2016. 


ViX

Top Picks

Look gorgeous at the beach this summer in the Solid Magenta Le Braid Bikini. The bright magenta looks like a tropical flower. The braided details on the back of the top and the sides of the bottom are swoon-worthy. The ruched detail on the bottom gives you a sweetheart look. The fit is flattering and gives your booty full coverage. The top is lightly lined and provides just the right amount of support. Pin your hair up and show off the braided design of the back. We love how unique this bikini is to wear.

Look summery sweet in the Bright Peach Bia Bikini. This beautiful color compliments any skin tone and the 24-karat gold dipped details at the top of the straps and the sides of the bottom add a little bling. The straps tie behind the neck and back. The bottoms have a cheeky fit that is flattering and flirty, available in full and sexy cheeky cut. This suit is swim and play ready. You can splash around all you want and you will still look great with everything still in place, if you know what we mean.

The Charlotte Alexia Loop Bikini gives you a modern, sexy look in a vintage floral print. You will feel fierce and feminine at the same time in this bikini. We love the twisted detailing in the top and bottom. This top has underwire support and push up padding. It is soft and pretty and so fun to wear. The bottoms are available in Brazilian and full cut.

Gypsea Swimwear

Top Picks

This season, photographed prints are popping up everywhere and Gyspea’s collection is no exception. If you are looking for something that really stands out, you need to get your hands on their Nerissa Collection. It features a beautiful shot of the blue water of Tahiti, and there is a selection of styles for all different body types. The Nerissa Acadia Top offers great coverage and seamless stitching for optimal comfort. If you spent some extra time in the gym this summer, or are taking an adults only vacation and looking to show off a bit more, then the Nerissa Tilly Bottom has got you covered (or a little bit uncovered)! This reversible bottom has elastic side strings and is cut for the perfect tan. 

Mix and match suits really allow you to get the most out of your bathing suit collection. Gyspea makes it easy with their different collections and endless options. The Lola collection has both an assortment of prints and solids which can mix and match to create the perfect suit. The Lola Acadia Top is one of their classic fits featuring seamless stitching with racer back and string detail. It has no clasps, ties and wires for a comfortable fit which is great for both sports and the beach. The Ava Nia Bottom compliments it perfectly with fuller coverage, seamless stitching and ample stretch.

The world loses millions of acres of trees due to deforestation every year and for this reason they plant a tree for every product sold online! 


Snapper Rock 

Top Picks

The little girl in your life needs the Surf Medallion Halter Bikini. It is so adorable. The lavender and aqua print is unique and pretty without being bright pink for girls who prefer another color. The halter top is comfy and gives her full coverage so she is comfortable and doesn’t look like she’s trying to look too grown up. It features Snapper Rock’s UV50+ protection. This suit will make mom and daughter happy. 

Pair her bikini with the Surf Medallion Batwing Kaftan. Mom will be jealous of this gorgeous cover up. Get to and from the beach in style with this comfy cover up with fun pom-pom trim. It features the same lavender and aqua print as the bikini. This kaftan is perfect if you are going to stop for dinner on your way home from the beach. Your daughter can wear it anywhere and won’t look like she’s in just a cover up. 

We are obsessed with the Camo Monkey Blue Boardies for boys. Finding quality suits that also look cool for boys is hard. This suit is well made and will be well loved this summer. The funky camo print is actually made up of leaves and little monkeys. It is so fun to wear and your son will want to show this suit off at the pool. It has a drawstring waist for the right fit that stays in place even during a cannonball! You will feel good about the UV50+ sun protection built right in. 

Pair the boardies with a UV 50 Swim Shirt – Aqua. We love the aqua paired with the monkey camo, and we love the sun protection even more. It is hard to keep sunscreen on kids. You can avoid a burn today and skin damage tomorrow by putting your son in one of Snapper Rock’s best selling swim shirts. 

Brand

Becca Swim    

Top Picks

The Tunisia line by BECCA features a vintage, bohemian style print. The navy and coral colors look amazing together. While the Tunisia is available in several styles, we can’t get enough of the Banded Triangle Top and Reversible Bottom. The top is so unique with its triangle style and wide band. The back of the top crosses straight across the shoulders and ties on the bottom, giving a unique look unlike any bikini top you’ve ever seen. The bottoms offer moderate coverage in a hipster style. 

For another bohemian style from BECCA, check out the Bali Boho. We love this print in the Crop Top and Lace up Hipster. This bright blue pattern is eye catching. With tan and cream details, this exclusive pattern will look good on anyone. Spend a day by the deep blue sea in this suit and you might be catching more looks than the ocean itself. The crop top fits comfortably and would be especially great for moms who want a little more coverage.

Vissla

  Top Picks

The Raised By Waves Boardshort is a bright suit that will stand out this summer. With an 18.5″ modern fit, this is no saggy, unstylish boardshort. The design is modern and exciting. Made with 4-way stretch coconut fibers and upcycled polyester, this suit is incredibly comfortable. You will dry off quickly because the Raised By Waves Boardshort is water repellant. 

The Choppy Boardshort is a classic swimsuit with a 20″ progressive fit. It features 4-way stretch made of upcycled polyester. The blue fog color reminds you of crystal seas and the garnet trim is an unexpected touch. 

The Sunset Boardshort is so fun with its sunset print and contrasting waistband and back pocket flaps. This suit is anything but boring and is ready for a good time at the beach. Made with 4-way stretch coconut fibers and upcycled polyester, you won’t want to take it off. This suit has the 18.5″ modern fit and looks so good, you will turn heads. 

Pair your boardshorts with a tank from Vissla. We love the Full Circle Tank. It proudly declares Vissla’s motto: “Sunburnt Minds and Palmtree Vibes” in the circle design. The vintage, broken in look of this tank is very hip and you will love wearing it on a walk down the beach this summer.

Lychee Swimwear

    

Top Picks

We love the Seychelles Top Floral paired with the South Pacific Bottom Floral. This bright, tropical print is amazing with its eye catching green leaves and bright orange flowers. The top is halter style, giving you coverage on top. The bottoms are feminine and sexy in the same print. This suit looks pretty and daring at the same time.

The Tahiti Top Birds of Paradise paired with the Costa Rica Bottom Birds of Paradise looks soft and sweet. Everyone needs a white bikini. It is classically sexy but this one has the lovely pink Birds of Paradise print for a detail you will adore. You should feel amazing in your swimwear and you will in this suit. The criss cross detail on the bottoms is sexy, and this suit will quickly become a favorite in your wardrobe.

Patagonia 

Top Picks

The Nanogrip Bikini from Patagonia is designed with adventure in mind. Whether you are surfing, kayaking or just swimming with a preschooler, this suit will stay in place. Moms can skip wearing an ugly mom suit to avoid a wardrobe malfunction and still look sexy this summer. The secret to this suit staying in place is the innovative blended nanofiber lining. The nanofiber actually grips more when it gets wet! The triangle top is very comfortable with wide straps and cross-back adjustable tie. The bottoms feature adjustable side ties to ensure a perfect fit. We love that Patagonia uses recycled nylon in this suit, something they developed after years of research and commitment to being good stewards of the environment and its resources. The turquoise is a gorgeous color on anyone.
