Extend the life of these summertime essentials with our laundering tips.
As much as we want the breezy connotations of a beach trip to ring true, in reality, the whole excursion is a production. Whether you're taking a summer day-trip from city to coast or partaking in a weekend Airbnb situation, these seasonal affairs can go from chic straw hats and soft Turkish towels to forgotten sunscreen and third-degree burns real quick. Plus, with social distancing rules imposing responsibility on these usually carefree months, it's even more essential to be as prepared as pos
Hitting the beach or pool is all about relaxing and having fun, so the last thing you should worry about is feeling self-conscious in a bathing suit. A good slimming swimsuit should not only look great, but also feel comfortable and hold up to regular use so it'll last for more than just a few wears. Slimming swimsuits can have built-in shapewear that feels more compressive to physically smooth bulges, or they can use design techniques to look flattering without feeling restrictive.
These are the suits that will make you stand out on the beach, for all the right reasons.
The swim scene has come a very long way. Where itty bitty string bikinis were once de rigeur for looking sexy at the beach and by the pool, we're now opting for on-trend bathing suits that don't show off too much skin and rather show off just enough. To prove it, we're calling out the Goldilocks of swimsuits: one-pieces of the low-back variety. High up front (to avoid any wave-induced slippage) and low in back, these pieces officially end the days of compromising coverage for sex appeal.The worl
To get started, you'll want to find a large bowl, a few small washcloths, a small storage container with a lid, and your eucalyptus essential oil. You'll need a large bowl, a storage container, eucalyptus essential oil, and your washcloths. Filtered water is best for this to make sure no other compounds in the water will break down the essential oil too quickly. The amount of eucalyptus oil you add to your water bowl will depend on how much water you've put in the bowl and how many towels you're making.
The best men's swimsuits double as shorts that'll see you through backyard cookouts and weekend errands with bold style and high-quality fabric—so we went ahead and pulled together some Amazon shopping ideas that fit the bill. A lot of finding the perfect pair of swim trunks is down to personal preference (do you want a longer inseam or a shorter, more retro-inspired style?), but there are a few key factors to keep in mind: Lightweight, quick-drying fabric is a must, especially if you're planning to wear your new suit beyond the beach, while a drawstring closure provides some extra comfort. Here are 10 swim trunks on Amazon we've bookmarked.
They're really pretty.
Seriously, buy a few options.

In July, Leyna Bloom will be the first transgender woman to appear in the Sport Illustrated Swimsuit issue, and the responsibility of being the first is one that Bloom doesn’t take lightly. “I would sit and talk to a lot of people who were the first to do things. One of the people was Tyra banks,” Bloom told Yahoo Life. “The best advice she gave me is the best advice I just live by every day. There will never be another first. You just honestly have to know that everything that you do from today on has to be for the bigger picture.” The model and actress will also appear in the final season of Pose, and she is starring in her first feature film. The film, Port Authority, premiered in 2019 and made Bloom the first trans woman of color to lead a film at Cannes Film Festival. Now available on Prime Video, the movie tells the story of a young man who falls in love with a woman entrenched in Harlem’s voguing ballroom scene. Historically in Hollywood, many stories featuring transgender characters show them in a negative or problematic light. Since 2002, GLADD as been cataloging episodes of shows featuring trans storylines and found that transgender characters were negatively portrayed about 51% of the time. At least 40% of the time, trans characters were cast in a "victim" role. Bloom says she wanted to be a part of a film that showed joy, love, and community. “Me in the world being adored is something that is very unfamiliar territory for a lot of people to even admit or talk about or really sit down and have a conversation with. It’s done in such a beautiful way that is very human to us all. It’s rooted in love and finding a connection to yourself and outside worlds,” says Bloom.
