My Search for the Perfect Swimsuit

I took a month-long journey to find the most amazing swimsuit and ended up finding hundreds of gorgeous suits to share. As a "fashion forward" woman, I know that when I head out to the beaches, I need to wear something unique and beautiful. It's expected of me from all my friends, followers, and buyers! They know my obsession with fashion. I read tons of magazines every week, follow multiple fashion blogs, subscribe to fashion newspapers, online fashion shows, and even obsessively watch fashion television. I live, eat, and breathe fashion, so I was determined to find the perfect suit.

Now that my search is complete, I am ready to show you the most amazing swimsuits of the year!

This suit was designed by an Israeli designer and is now popular around the world.

1. Gottex

This multi-colored, multi-faceted, multi-everything swimsuit just reels the mind. At least mine, that is. It is amazingly crafted, beautiful, and everything a fashion girl could want! Who could create such a thing? Apparently, an Israeli. The company started back in the 1950s. Today, their suits are adored and worn by many American celebrities for their vacations in St. Tropez and other places.

2. Aqua de Coco

Green is not just for environmentalists and tree-huggers. This shade is for everyone to enjoy. Take a look at this fashion stunner. I love the way the wrapped sides add an exotic element without looking too foofy. This would be the perfect bikini for a sportier fashionista.

3. Caffe

Okay, the plunging neckline with the scales and wide belt might seem a bit much. But with fashion, sometimes a bit much can be a good thing! This is perfect for any glamazon out there wanting to look like money!

Single? Wear this to a nice beach in Southern California. Now picture the most perfect, gorgeous tall, dark, and handsome man you have ever seen coming up to you to propose. All because your bathing suit was a "bit much." Ding ding ding! Jackpot!

4. Maaji

How perfectly splendid and girly is this swimsuit? It has great style, detailing, colors, fit, imagination, and uniqueness. I love every aspect of this bikini. Now where are those people who insist that fashion, and clothing simply are not art? Have they met Maaji?!

We must enlighten those pretentious art snobs!

What a unique suit this is!

5. Aqua di Lara

One may wonder (like I): Is this a swimsuit? It could be an art piece or a sculpture but certainly not a plain ol' bikini! This is indeed the Leonardo da Vinci of swimsuits! How in love I was, of course until I saw the $400 price tag. But I digress. If Catwoman were to choose a sexy suit, this would be it! Gentlemen, can I have an amen?

An adorable retro suit with great details.

6. Jet

This swimsuit has such a great "throwback" vibe that I had to put it on the list. Not only are the bow and buttons adorable, but the suit actually has great lines. That halter and low V-neck will surely look amazing on any woman with curves! I love the vintage aspect, which is saying a lot since I am generally highly skeptical of vintage.

I can picture myself on a yacht, with a gentlemen who uncannily resembles Rhett from Gone With the Wind!

7. Aqua di Lara

I now know what this country is missing (since we appear to have almost everything). What this nation needs is a Swim Suit Hall of Fame, or at least a fantastic swimwear museum (run by moi, of course!). This swimsuit is a mesmerizing color. It's like the color that a mermaid's tail would be if we had mermaids walking around! Would it not? I love the sheen and the perfect symmetry of the fabric. It's chic, fashionable, and perfect for all sunbathers and adventure-seekers alike!

8. Beach Bunny

Yowza! If you're afraid of showing skin, back away now! This one is straight from the land of sex appeal. The bikini has lace, satin, and cutouts The jewel toned green is gorgeous, as is the design. It may look a little bedroom-like, but why not? There are nude beaches out there for you to wear this to. If only I were brave enough . . . I would be purchasing this at this very moment.

Multiple cut-out panels and a classic red color make this a bombshell of a suit.

9. Nicole Oliver

Any bombshells out there wanting to be the center of attention? I've found the perfect bathing suit for you! This is the epitome of class crossing over to sexy. Red is a classy, but seductive color. Add multiple panels of cutouts and you're certainly not blending in anymore. This is amazing, and certainly suited for my swimsuit museum. However, I could never wear it, knowing I'd get caught in all those strings!

A truly sexy one piece.

10. Gottex

Who says one-piece suits can't be sexy? This is one of the most special and outstanding suits I've ever seen, and look: There's only one piece! The sparkle, shape, and cut all make this swimsuit fantastic. I love this look and that there's a gold outlining in the body. Of course, it helps that the model is flawless too!

A stunning silver monokini.

11. Beach Bunny

I just couldn't end my list without an absolutely stunning monokini! This silver suit is the classiest, most exotic monokini I've seen in a long time. The lines and detailing are great. The designers definitely did not skimp out on the fabric. What makes this suit is the color. Now, this silverish-grey color can sometimes get a bit monotone; however, this bright, shiny silver knocks the suit out of the park!

Yena Williams (author) from California on March 14, 2011:

Hi Tiffany: Your situation is similar to what I told to "nicole" above you. This is last year's designs so they're probably long gone. You can check out the mentioned stores/designers and see if they have any similar monokinis! Good Luck!

Tiffany on March 12, 2011:

Hi, those swimwears r beautiful! But how do u get the number 3 one? I would luv to get one of those! :)

Another delight! The Jet had me and your explanation with the retro vibe - great wordsmith!

Yena Williams (author) from California on April 15, 2010:

Olivia, this is such a late response but... it is now sold out! Its also not on their official site: so sad!

I'm so glad I nabbed it before it disappeared.

Try googling south beach swimwear: that's where I get a lot of my swimwear!


Olivia on March 23, 2010:

God these are cute!

Now the only problem would be choosing one of have great taste!

On your "part two" you said you ended up buying four, one of them being the aqua de coco? Could you tell me its official name and where on EARTH you got it? (i've been googling for quite a while haha)

Yena Williams (author) from California on March 10, 2010:


I will go check out your hub on cocktail rings!

Thank you Phillyfreeze, for the grand compliment. I'm so glad you liked the collection. I'm making a Part 2 as well =)

Phillyfreeze69 on February 13, 2010:

Never knew pleated panels could be so sexy (Beach Bunny #11). You have assembled a very elegant and glamourous collection.

Yena Williams (author) from California on February 13, 2010:

Hi Kj8: I can see what you mean by 'non-practical' but that's what this list was intended for! For the ultra-spectacular. Personally, I would wear most of these bathingsuits, but, I'm a bit extreme =)

I have another hub on more practical swimsuits!

Thanks so much for visitng.

kj8 from Australia on February 13, 2010:

In my opinion numbers 6 and 9 are the only nice suits and practical suits there and even then with 6 you have to be thin or the horizontal stripes will make you look bigger. Being an Aussie chick, I spend a lot of time at the beach and we swim to swim, spend time on the beach to play or run. I couldn't stand worrying about falling out of my swimmers.

Yena Williams (author) from California on February 11, 2010:

Cheeky Girl: I'm so glad you liked all of the suits! I really like the Jet one too =)

Shareitt: This is how I feel as Spring is creeping up on us!! Thanks for visiting.

shareitt on February 11, 2010:

Great suits! I better keep to the gym :)

emievil from Philippines on February 06, 2010:
