Hey beauties! Hope you are having a fun summer full of RADness–if not, then I am sure these four suits will add some sunshine to your beach time. How do I know? Well, I know I am not alone when it comes to finding the perfect suit for athletic body types, so I took it upon myself to find this seasons best. Two pieces, one pieces, cut outs and more – all FitGirl approved to turn heads whether you are at the pool for a workout or on the beach to lay out. Enjoy!
1. A Too Cute Two Piece – Oakley
When it comes to swimwear for the athletic girl, Oakley has pretty much invented this fashionable yet functional wheel. Guaranteed to not only hold everything in when you spike the ball during beach volleyball, but this Seabed bikini will also boost your fashionista game too. I love how the Toe In Twisted Bandeau has removable straps and is fully lined and the Hipster With Shirred Sides bottom is low rise yet has just the right amount of coverage. Both pieces have a silicon trim and sand resistant lining so once your suit is on it will stay in place and you wont have to worry about bringing home any sand from the beach. Each piece is sold separately, so find the perfect fit for your body type and I’ll see you during that beach volleyball game lady!
2. The #1 One Piece – Onzie
Finding a one piece that is comfortable yet adorable is such a struggle sis – well that was until my Cali FitGirls at Onzie perfected the one piece. Their halter is everything a one piece should be and I promise you that once you try this one size fits all beauty on you’re going to want to wear it beyond the pool. So don’t freak out about the one size fits all option because this suit truly fits hard bodies ranging from size 0-9. Plus the full coverage bottom and bodice support is not only slimming but super comfy. So with that said, I think getting one in every color makes complete sense.
3. Crazy Cut-outs Are So In – Athleta
Can’t decided between a bikini and a one piece, have both and get a suit with some cut-outs. Sexy coverage is so in, and when it comes to this option for FitGirls Athleta has got us covered ladies (pun’s wild). The Roca Chica Scallop One Piece is a total chameleon of a suit since it looks like a bikini from the back, however the front is perfectly cut and super slimming. Plus this suit is rated UPF 50+. Win win! Perfect for paddling, surfing, swimming or just simply posing.
4. Glam Squad For Buff Girls – Karmaloop
Okay fashionista FitGirls, if you’re looking for a suit that feels like your favorite sports bra yet looks like something a mermaid would wear then this Black Sand two piece by Beach Riot is just for you. I found this sequins covered RAD set over at Karmaloop and I have to say, boy am I totally impressed with not only how well crafted it is, but how comfortable it is too. It is double lined and the ruffle top is great for us B cup girls. And since the bottoms are low cut (and a bit cheeky – love this) this combo of a bikini is super elongating. You’re never going to want to take this one off – promise!
