This was like naming your favorite child. Not easy. But here is the starting lineup of my absolute favorite ‘kinis for 2011, and where you can buy them, because they are all charge-on-card worthy, unique and heart-palpitation inducing.

1: Mikoh – Maldives & Lanai: Quite possibly the coolest design of a bikini I’ve ever seen.
2: Acacia – Missy: custom snakeskin print, prefect cheeky bottoms, and long braided ties. I feel more exotic already.
3: Basta Surf – Padang: Ruched, reversible, bright, flattering and insanely comfortable. I could live in this if I owned it.
4. Tori Praver – Maila: A strappy racerback top and low rise fuller coverage boy shorts…all ruched. Really, could it get any cuter?
5. Indah – Thai: Smocked top and bottom, crystal starfish at the ends of the ties, and best of all it is bright NEON YELLOW!
