If Knix isn’t on your summer radar yet, it should be. The intimate apparel brand just dropped the newest addition to their line: leakproof swimsuits.

Now you can rest peacefully at the pool without having to dash to find a restroom every few hours to check your suit. The collection itself is super chic and versatile, too. You can easily mix and match bikini tops and bottoms—or opt for a sleek one-piece. And as with everything Knix makes, the size inclusive designs are made for *every* body.

What Do They Mean By “leakproof Technology”?

Inside the gusset of the swimsuit bottoms, there are three layers: quick dry, absorption and waterproof. Together, they hold up to three tablespoons of liquid (about as much as three tampons would). This is the same technology used in their period underwear for optimal protection against leaks. And if you’re wondering whether you’ll still need to wear another form of protection with the suit, the brand recommends you do whatever makes you feel most comfortable, but you don’t have to. We suggest taking the bottoms for a test drive in a low risk setting (i.e., a solo dip in a pool) and see how you feel.

20 Comfortable Sandals You'll Live In This Summer, Starting at Just $20

knix bottoms

1. the Bottoms

These high-waisted bottoms will not have you looking like you’re wearing a diaper. The high cut is flattering on your hips and the waistband supports your midsection without being too constrictive thanks to the flexible seam along the band. Translation: No more telltale crease on your stomach. (Hallelujah!) Though they’re only available in black at the moment, you can mix and match the bottoms with a colorful top or stick with the monochromatic vibe.

2. the One-piece

This beautiful piece is both slimming (it seriously snatches your waist) and lengthening. The scoop neck emphasizes the chest while providing ample support and the adjustable straps can be tightened or loosened to your preferred length. If you prefer a slightly more modest cut in the back, this suit is for you. Reaching just over the hips and bum, it offers a fuller coverage look while still being sexy.
