We're leaving our bras at home.

If you’re like us, you always over pack for a weekend away at the beach (yes, we do need three pairs of shoes). So we asked the bathing suit experts at Everything But Water how they pair their favorite swim pieces with weekend getaway staples.

 

Tip 1: Taking a small bag? "Sleek one pieces, especially in beautiful fabrications and plunging necklines, can be worn as bodysuits under skirts or shorts," says Sabra Krock, Everything But Water’s Creative Director. They also tend to hold you in better, thus creating a sleeker silhouette.

Tip 2: Bikini tops with beautiful strap details make great tops under backless dresses. We love that we can also pair these under tanks and tees and leave our regular bras at home.  "A current favorite is our Kiini bikini top with crochet detail along the straps," says Krock, "It would be beautiful poking out from under a dress."

 Tip 3: If you’re looking for a little more support, Krock suggests trying a bandeau or bustier swim top. They easily double as undergarments layered undersheer tanks or loose dresses.

Tip 4: If you need something for a dinner out while on vacation, Krock looks to on-trend cropped rash guards. They make great pairings with flowy skirts and loose linen pants.

Tip 5: And, surf-inspired swim tops are equally at home as tees with all your shorts for summer.
