Shave Ice Panama Bikini, Acacia Swimwear
“I like this suit because of the design around the collar bone. It gives it a unique look, (and tan!).” Emily Scott, senior
Blake Petal Reed Underwire Bikini, Orchid Label
“This bikini is my favorite, because I can avoid awkward tanlines with the bandeau top. Plus, it’s an underwire, so it won’t slip off easily.” Amy Luong, freshman
Flora Underwire Bikini, Mongola
“I like this bikini because the top is longer and covers more of my stomach and it’s a fun floral pattern.” Jessica Frye, senior
Goddess Boyleg Maillot Black One-Piece, Seafolly Swimwear
“This suit is my favorite because it is simple and has a retro look. I like that it’s a halter top, because it looks like it would give good support.” Julia Hoyt, sophomore
Coral Reef One-Piece, Trina Turk
“I love one-piece swimsuits for the summer like this one. Like Emma Watson said, ‘My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal, the more people can wonder.’ On top of that, this suit has bust support and a criss-cross back, which makes it super comfy.” Sarah Nelson, freshman
Ursula High Waisted Bikini, Vitamin
“This is my favorite swimsuit, because it’s a classic black bikini with a twist! The sheer material that makes it high-waisted seems like it would be very flattering on all body types and there seems to be good coverage on top as well.” Tarah DeSousa, junior
Chloe Royal Wrap Bikini, L*Space Swimwear
“I really like this swimsuit because it’s very unique. I love the Aztec print on the bottom, as well as it being a hipster style. The bottom is also reversible, and I love being able to switch up my style whenever I want to.” Rachel Green, freshman
Block Party Retro Maillot One-Piece, Seafolly Swimwear
“This suit is the classy ‘little black dress’ of women’s swimsuits. The sleek look paired with the white trim gives curvy women the perfect accent to their shape. It is a great option for those of us who like to feel sexy, but don’t want to expose very much skin on the beach.” Julia-Kaye Rohlf, junior
Sienna Poppy Brazilian Two-Piece, Orchid Label
“I like this one because the top is patterened, floral and slimming. You could almost wear it as a crop top, too!” Hannah Frey, freshman
