It’s swim season and honestly, kind of glad we can’t go to Nordstrom’s to try on new swim styles in that dreaded 3-way mirror. It’s one of the best things to come out of quarantine— time to embrace every curve and slay on the beach, or on your patio— a new season of feeling confident and ready to take on the world in your swimsuit, whenever the world is ready for us, that is. Most importantly, these styles are perfect for everybody ranging from bikinis, high waisted bottoms (an all-time fave), and one pieces. Time for your new summer silhouette.



What we love about Summersalt most is their commitment to fit— they’ve taken measurements of over 1.5 million women to get it right, the dedication is real. Plus, each swimsuit is made with recycled polyamide so your look is earth-friendly too. And be sure to check out their easy-to-shop collections, featuring collabs from designers such as Tanya Taylor and specially curated maternity styles for all of the moms-to-be out there.
