Summer sports and string bikinis go together like suntan oil and water, but just because you're an active beach-goer doesn't mean you can't sport a cute suit. Whether you're a serious swimmer or triathlete or just the type who'd rather work out than lay out at the beach, you'll need a swimsuit that won't go flying off every time you move.
Though the racerback Speedo is a classic choice, today's waterbabes can choose from tons of stylish yet sporty one-piece swimsuits, like this Athleta Bra Cup Twistini One Piece ($80). Or, if you want something truly unique, you can even design your own. Below, you'll find my favorite one-piece swimsuits that are both sporty and stylish, and check back later for my recommendations on two-pieces.
