It’s crazy. I used to have to scour racks and the internet for a stay put bikini that also was stylin’. But lately, there are so many gorgeous specimens out there, I really am about to go crosseyed after investigating for the pst hour or so.
So, you know, I case any one just miiiight be on the hunt for a cool bikini this summer. Here’s a dozen of the many that are out there. That should stay put, and will win a few rounds of free margaritas in the style department fiesta too.
Vamos. A la Playa.
Notes on a bikinis stay put-ness: The more it resembles some sort of sportsbra, the more it will stay put. Hopefully that wasn’t too much of a shocker. The more fixed and secured to fabric the parts that cover your boobs are, the more it will stay put. Sorry, this means a regular triangle top is not your best bet here, folks. In the bottoms, a double/loop tie or laced side is your best bet, so you can tighten or loosen it. Reinforced elastic sides are a gem too. Or, for some reason boyshort bottoms stay on really well too (for me at least). The single, traditional string bikini side ties bottoms, are not your best bet if you plan on doing anything other than sitting and slowly walking without any sudden movements.
Ok, the suits. Top to bottom left to right:
1: Ola Feroz Carupano Bikini Set – It stays put, has adjustable ties on the bottoms and top, is triple lined, makes your boobs look amazing, and I once wore it surfing without tying the back, and it stayed on. So it’s mombrain proof too.
3: Issa De mar – Poema Top…and whatever bottom you want. The Poema top is one of my all time favorite tops. Period. Why? Well the Issas rip. And know how to make a grrreat suit.
5: Tavik Jessie top and Vine Bottom – This might be one of the more popular combos. It can double as a bra, has cool cutouts, no ties, and all the cool gals are wearing it. So it’s extra cool. Like, big time cool.
7: Roxy dry wind halter and bottoms – I would be such a hypocrite if I didn’t have a tropical print surf-friendly suit on this list. Bonus points for bright fun colors, reasonable price, and braided straps too.
9: Indie + Wild Sanibel top and Guadeloupe bottom – My beloved shell babes, Rosanna and Zoe, are at it again, and this suit is part boho, part sleek, and just a whole lot of cool part covering all your lady parts. Sporty and shells. Hallelujah.
12: Rip Curl X Goldfish Kiss Tribal Kiss Bralette and hipster. Sorry to end this with some shameless self promotion. But FYI, each of those tiny triangles was painted with love by yours truely.
There you go.
There’s a bunch more out there, but my mind and willpower might explode if I look at all the gorgeousness out there anymore tonight.
Swimwear designers. I salute you. And wish I could buy you all a margarita to say thanks.
Have fun. Do some cannon balls. Yay bikinis.
