The West Coast Classic
Trends come and go, but a minimalist sexy bikini is always in style.

What’s more, a percentage of every sale goes to support marine conservation.
Black Tie, Bold Legs
Summer 2020 is all about legs, and this Cheerful One-Piece from SWIMINISTA ($156) really shows out. Using ultra-soft, durable recycled fabric, serial mompreneur and former Co-Founder of Rock & Republic Andrea Bernholtz aims to develop a go-to suit for every unique body. Get a personalized fit designed to support sizes A-DDD, with a ruched back to round out the booty and custom power mesh lining. Plus, this sexy one-piece hits on another of this summer’s hot trends: ties and wraps. Wear it as a multi-purpose bodysuit with your favorite summer shorts for an effortless day to night look. Available in black, white, red, and leopard print.
The Zero-Waste-High-Waist Look
