Whether you live by the pool in the summer, consider the beach your home away from home, or just love sitting in your backyard pretending you’re on vacation, one thing is certain: You can never own too many swimsuits. So go ahead and do yourself a favor by shopping these Black-owned swimwear brands we’ve rounded up below. Hot girl summer is for every single person on the planet—even your 80-year-old grandma if she still wants to rock a bikini. Create your own with some seriously sexy bikinis, tankinis and one-pieces from some oh-so-cool brands. You won’t be able to resist what stunning pieces these Black-owned businesses are offering.
One of the best things about swimsuits is that they can be worn all the time—even when you’re nowhere near water. You can easily pair a cute bikini top with an unbuttoned boyfriend shirt and high-waisted shorts or wear a one-piece swimsuit as a bodysuit paired with jeans and some fun statement earrings. The possibilities are truly endless (but very, very chic). Oceanside vacation or not, you can get plenty of use from your swimsuits this summer—so you might as well stock up.
To get you started, we rounded up 10 must-shop Black-owned swimwear brands below. Snag a few bikinis and support Black businesses at the same time. It’s honestly a no-brainer—and you’ll end up with a stockpile of gorgeous swimsuits, too. Prepare to want to add every swimsuit from each of these brands to your cart, because they’re all seriously swoon-worthy. Your very own hot girl summer awaits you.
