If I were to write a short list of clothing items that scare me, somewhere after body-con dresses and maybe before uncomfortable shoes and white jeans you’d find white bathing suits. You may have already read about the fact that I don’t particularly love wearing bathing suits in the first place but buy them anyway—now if you take a category that already makes me uncomfortable and choose a white (aka nowhere-to-hide) iteration, I’m downright petrified. It’s kind of how my former co-worker Aemilia feels about another bubbling swim trend.
Nonetheless, you can imagine my confusion when I suddenly noticed how many of my favorites suits were actually white. Maybe seeing so many of them (after all, they are having a moment) was like a form of exposure therapy, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I actually ordered a couple while simultaneously researching stories.
Will I end up channeling my inner Sofia Richie this summer? Only time will tell, but for now, you can shop all the nicest white bikinis and one-pieces I have my eyes on below—and some of which even have shopper reviews to back them up.
That’s all for swimwear, but you can shop more trends I’m loving right now.
