This off-the-shoulder gingham print bikini is for the gal who loves to sit out by the pool while sipping an aperol spritz. Physical exertion is out the picture because she's on vacation and all she wants to do is lay out and tan. Oh, and she'll obviously want her SO or BFF to take a photo of her in this adorable bikini for the 'gram.
Caroline Constas, $315
Bathing suits with scallop edging are great for ladies with smaller busts. The wavy designs give the illusion of depth in your chest and draw the eyes to the details—rather than your boobs. This swimsuit, while being very now is also a feminine cut that never goes out of style, so you can wear this season after season.

I want to plan a trip back to the Amalfi Coast just so I can wear this bikini (Italy and lemons go hand in hand). The yellow-and-pink hues of this fun print gives off the perfect seaside summer vibes. Bonus: the two piece is relatively affordable, so you can spend the rest of your money on a nice hotel (with rooftop infinity pool).

If you're in the market for a new black bikini, opt for thicker-banded style. The top's straps are supportive, which minimizes the chance of a wardrobe malfunction as you splash around the pool with friends. To add some color to this monochrome look, style with a pair of retro red sunglasses.

The gingham print and daisy straps make this two-piece set feel ultra feminine, if that's your vibe. Don't hide this statement bikini under a solid cover up. Instead, find a white mesh option, like this one from ASOS, so you can still show off the swimsuit's flirty prints.
Topshop top, $38

There's a reason this bikini comes in navy and beige: the colors supposedly complement a sun-kissed glow. Test out this theory by packing the swimsuit for your next warm-weather getaway. The top has an internal boning to help it keep its shape, so go ahead and shove it into your already-stuffed suitcase.
Both Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Bella Hadid love Hunza G's seersucker swimsuits and I know why. The stretchy material is full of give and so soft against your skin. This two-piece comes in a sweet pale pink color that will highlight your bronzed skin.
Hunza G, $165
Take your gingham print game up a notch with this fruity bikini. The two seemingly contrasting designs actually complement each other surprisingly well, since the gingham serves as a neutral backdrop. And, when brought along on vacation, the swimsuit will also serve as a constant reminder to eat your daily dose of produce.
Onia top, $95
Onia bottom, $95
This lined bikini top features light padding and underwire cups to support your boobs as you run across the scorching sand to embrace the ocean waves. Once you're tired of the water, unhook the straps of your bikini top (to avoid tan lines, although you're definitely wearing sunscreen, right?!) as you lay out to dry. You get two styles for the price of one swimsuit.
H&M top, $18
H&M bottom, $13
