Summertime is full of activities—such as pool parties and beach days—that really only require one wardrobe essential: a swimsuit, and well, maybe a good sunhat and sunnies, too. Considering how many events that are sure to pop up in your schedule in the coming weeks will, in fact, call for a one- or two-piece, now might be the time start freshening up your swimwear collection by repurposing the old (i.e., styles fading in color and showing signs of serious wear and tear) and scooping up the latest and greatest ones to hit the fashion scene in 2019.
The choices are endless, but we thought we'd help you navigate the overwhelming selection by spotlighting the 20 best swimsuit brands that we're absolutely head over heels for. Each offers something exceptional, whether that be sustainable fabrics, comfy silhouettes, or affordable prices (some even hit on all three!), and they're super trend-forward as well. Want something minimal but chic? Andie Swim is for you. Or how about a suit that's not only easy on the eyes but easy on the wallet, too? Cupshe is calling your name.
