8 Statement Swimsuits for Every Shape and Size

You patiently waited out winter’s cold winds and annoying blizzards, which means you’ve now earned some hot ’n’ sunny beach days. All you need before hitting the shore to soak up that vitamin D is a statement swimsuit (and sunscreen, of course). This year is all about bright colors and sleek angles designed to flatter every shape and size.

Color-block High-neck Keyhole One-piece

The color blocking on this one-piece suit gives it a sleek two-piece vibe. It’s also a nice color compromise for anyone hesitant to don neon-level brights; pink and teal lighten things up without getting too crazy.
