I Own Over 70 Bikinis, and These Are the Ones I Love and Wear the Most

·4 min read

Swimsuit season is upon us, and today, we're focusing on all the beautiful bikinis worth scooping up for summer. To get more insight on the bikinis worth adding to our carts this season, I tapped Michelle Scanga—former Who What Wear managing editor (current editor at Poosh), a swimwear connoisseur, and the queen of bikinis who owns over a whopping 70 bikinis—and asked her to share her absolute favorite two-pieces she loves and wears the most. With such a large number of bikinis in her drawer, there's no doubt a style has to really earn her approval to gain wear time at the pool, so her picks below are the crème de la crème within her collection. Keep scrolling for her favorites and to shop more we have our eye on this summer.

"I'm a sucker for string bottoms, and with this one, you can adjust the straps to fit higher or lower, which I love. Plus, it's the perfect shade of pink for me."
