If there’s one thing Canadians know, it’s beachwear. Just kidding. We’ve had a mighty cold winter, and our summer months seem pretty damn short during those long, chilly winters. Well, spring is finally here, and I’d say there’s no better way to celebrate than splurging on some (or 100) adorable swimsuits to rock this summer. Vancouver is bursting with beaches for swimming and parks for tanning, so I just know you’ll get your money’s worth this summer.
So, now that the sun is shining in VanCity, I’m ready to start splurging. Though, I got a little ahead of myself and may have started the bathing suit hunt in January. Needless to say, I’ve become pretty knowledgeable about all of the jaw-dropping swimwear this earth has to offer. Some near, some far, these 10 swimwear brands deserve a spot in your beach bag this summer.
Black Bough Swimwear
I am beyond obsessed with the adorable and versatile designs. Many of their suits are reversible, and equally cute when you mix and match. The best part? You don’t even have to break the bank.
You know what they say on Lilo and Stitch? “Ohana means family,” which means these little numbers should definitely join your wardrobe family. I’m especially enchanted by the SIMBAA line, and I think you’ll love it too. Check out OHANA SWIM, you will not be disappointed.
