As we peel off the layers, store our parkas in the back of the closet, and bust out those tank tops and sandals, we can feel the season of bikinis and beachside afternoons coming. So, as you upgrade your warm weather wardrobe with all the essentials, it's time to upgrade that swimwear selection [1] as well. This Summer, we're particularly enthralled by the multitude of bikini styles [2] that have been designed by all our favorite brands. there is a plethora of trend-focused pieces and classic sets alike — in prints, colors, neutrals, and more — that we can't wait to get our hands on. No matter what your style, there is something out there for you, but make sure you're dressing for your body [3] as well. Paying particular attention to coverage, support, silhouettes, and more, here are the most flattering bikini styles for every body type (and our favorite styles to shop right now!).
