Swimsuits for Summer 2012

Everyone is bringing out new suits!  I’m excited–it’s beach weather all year round in Hawaii but new swim suit styles don’t come out until now–late Spring/early Summer.

I haven’t gone searching around too much, but so far, I have noticed there seems to be some new styles/trends for this year:

1. Bandaeu Tops
2. Tribal Prints

Billabong Silvana Bandaeu SwimSet – Pacsun – $59.50

I personally like this style of top because it’s like two in one!  You can wear it strapless or as a halter.  Tribal prints, on the other hand, I like if it’s not too busy or too colorful.  I like the top for this suit but I think I would have liked the bottom more if the middle section was a solid black.  (P.S. This set is on sale at PacSun ATM!)

3. Bustier Tops
4. Padded Cups

LA Hearts Bustier Print Bikini Top – PacSun –  $24.50

Its like a bra, but in nylon/lycra/spandex so you can wear it in the water!  Interesting.  I heard from a friend that VS has a pretty affordable line of push-up bikini tops?

4. One Piece Swimsuits with Interesting Cutouts

Kandy Wrapped Halter Fringe One Piece – PacSun – $59.50

Also on advice from a friend–she has one of these suits and she absolutely LOVES it.  I’m a bit worried about strange tan lines, but hey!  We’re all supposed to cover-up, be in the shade, and wear lots of sunscreen, right?


Personally, my favorite is the bandeau.  I actually just went to my local TJ Maxx (just opened in Hawaii, hurray!) and I scored a super cute Poko Pano bandeau bikini for $15!  Good deals. 😀
