Have you had enough of frigid Toronto temperatures, icy road conditions and shovelling your driveway every three hours and are headed down south for a tropical vacation to escape winter? Okay, your ticket is booked: now, you just have to buy a new bathing suit because you want to look your best while you are reclining under that beach umbrella sipping on margaritas. Here are some stylish women’s bathing suits for various tastes.
One piece bathing suits do not have to be boring. This one piece bathing suit from Trina Turk available at the Hudson’s Bay for $166 has wide halter straps and a low neckline. The print is playful and modern, making this one piece youthful and sexy.
I love this two-piece bathing suit from Jets for its classy styling and retro 40s look. Get it at Melmira Bra and Swimsuits at 3319 Yonge Street. You’ll definitely turn heads at any pool or ocean you decide to adorn.
This Christina tankini from Hudson’s Bay ($58) comes in D Cup sizes only from 8D to 16D. The bra is contoured for extra support and there is side shirring to present a flattering figure.
For those who are confident enough to expose lots of flesh, this two-piece chain link bandeau and Brazilian bottom bathing suit from Victoria’s Secret will do the trick. A Brazilian and loads of sunscreen are a must.
This black, one-shoulder monokini from Victoria’s Secret ($72.50) will camoflauge a tummy while still providing a sleek, sexy silhouette. You could wear it with a long beach cover-up skirt for evening cocktails by the sea.
This Tiger Floral bikini from la Vie en Rose comes in various bikini top and bottom styles, which you can mix and match. This bikini style has a push up halter with molded cups to enhance your bust.
This one piece women’s bathing suit from Karla Colletto at Melmira Bra and Swimsuits is super slimming due to its colour-blocked design. Simple, yet elegant, you could actually do some laps in this bathing suit.
