While there’s something to be said for a modest one-piece swimsuit— they do forgive a multitude of sins — I am a big fan of the bikini, too. It’s hard to find one that’s not too revealing, or in some ridiculous unflattering neon pink leopard print, though, so I recently spent an afternoon scouring my fave fashion sites looking for one for the new season… and I’ve actually ended up with an entire wish-list full! Here are 8 beautiful bikinis…

Long Soak Bikini

Long Soak Bikini Price: $136.00 at anthropologie.com
This bikini by Pex D’Or offers the most flattering cut and pattern, either in tiny blue-and-orange polka dots or navy and white stripes, strategically placed to flaunt the curves you love and disguise the ones you’re not so happy about. It’s high-waisted with a generous halter-top that ties at the neck and in the back.


Maine Event Bikini

Maine Event Bikini Price: $182.00 at anthropologie.com
Brilliant red lobsters swim across a deep blue sea… or, rather, across a nylon/spandex blend bikini by Ondademar. The top features a ring in the center, removable light pads, and a removable halter that ties behind the neck. The bottoms are modestly but adorable boy shorts… but be warned… this bikini runs very small.


Cross Currents Bikini

Cross Currents Bikini Price: $176.00 at anthropologie.com
This is a bikini by Seafolly is made for a woman who’s not afraid of attracting some attention. It comes in two colors (pale turquoise or sleek black) and features a plunging bandeau top with a twist in the center and a similar twist at the waistband. The cups are molded and there is light boning in the sides (to keep the girls under control)… I’d wear this with an ikat-print sarong and strappy wedges.


Peaceful Seas Bikini

Peaceful Seas Bikini Price: $166.00 at anthropologie.com
Clearly inspired by the beautiful figure-flattering bikinis of the 1950s, this two-piece by Anika is a true navy blue with pretty green shell buttons for accents. The bottoms are high-waisted, the top a convertible bandeau/halter. Wear with a polka-dot banded sunhat and bring your beach blanket!


Carefree Bikini

Carefree Bikini Price: $156.00 at anthropologie.com
Aqua De Coco's addiction to my list is a brilliant striped and floral-print set, a traditional bikini with softly molded cups and a low-slung bottom. I adore the little sash attached to the bottoms, made of the same black-and-white fabric as the top… the contrast is stark and very, very pretty!

Famous Quotes

Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech.


Sea Finds Bikini

Sea Finds Bikini Price: $156.00 at anthropologie.com
What sets this bikini apart from others, perhaps more eye-catching at first glance? Look again, and notice the frilly row of mother-of-pearl shells down the center of the bandeau top, in perfect contrast to the bright turquoise color. If a bandeau top makes you nervous, no worries — there’s a detachable halter strap included, too.


Bar None Bikini

Bar None Bikini Price: $156.00 at anthropologie.com
What a pretty bikini, all in lush red, pink, and blue stripes! This bikini by Anika has it all, from the print to the colors to the uber-flatting cut. The top is a retro-inspired halter with molded cups, the bottoms a ruched-sided boy short. Add a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses and a paperback novel, and you’re ready for a day at the beach… or poolside!

See? Not a single hoochie-mama swimsuit, not one in an annoying over-the-top print! Aren’t these all gorgeous? I love the one with the little red lobsters… which do you like best, and what would you wear it with?
