‘Bond Girl’ Swimsuits Are Taking Over the Beaches This Summer
It's perhaps the most famous bikini of all time, and now it's back for more. Ursula Andress, the OG Bond Girl, stole the show as Honey Ryder in the 1962 classic Dr. No with her white belted two-piece—and she's been inspiring beach goers ever since. In fact, Andress credits the one-of-a-kind swimsuit with jump-starting her career and catapulting her to stardom. And while we think it's unlikely that the trend will do the same for us, a girl can certainly hope.
Yup, belted bikinis are back, though this time without a knife holster. And besides bringing a fun, retro vibe, they're also super flattering. Here are 16 of the best ones to snap up ASAP (hunky British intelligence agent not included).
The open back adds a subtle hint of sex appeal.
Seea one-piece ($145)
Go all in on the retro vibes with a pair of round sunnies and an oversize straw hat.
The one-two punch of color-blocked sides and a belt at the middle will make your waist look itty-bitty.
Boden one-piece ($90)
We picture this cutie (and ourselves) taking a dip next to a tropical waterfall.
Lisa Marie Fernandez bikini ($395)
Pop of Blue
No judgements here if you remove the belt and wear it around your favorite sundress, too.
Xhilaration one-piece ($30)
A wide belt helps make a longer torso look more proportional.
Floralkini one-piece ($53)
For the gal who prefers a glam beachside look over breezy boho.
