The Black-Owned Swim Brands We’re Shopping

Check out the best new styles on the market.

Many of us have drawers overflowing with suits, though we only wear a small handful of them. Some are faded from excessive love while others still remain tagged. Finding the perfect suit to make us feel our best is no easy task as we look to check off many boxes like fit, style and quality. We’re here to help with some of our favorite pieces on the market that live up to their online luster. We’ve decided to highlight suits from our favorite Black-owned businesses in celebration of Black History Month. 

Hanifa

HANIFA

Why we love it:

The high-hip / high-waisted combo on the bottom gives the illusion of longer legs and accentuates the waist. This top can also be worn off-beach; nobody will suspect it's a swimsuit.

Riot Swim

Why we love it:

Like the Hanifa suit, the ultra high hip will give you endlessly long legs.The fabric of this suit is like a buttery second skin. It’s super stretchy, so it’s a great option to pick up online when you aren’t able to try on in person.

Melissa Simone

Why we love it:

The swim-skirt is having a moment and we are here for it. The simple solid print here is great for trying a new style.

Why we love it:

This cap-sleeve keyhole suit is elegant and elevated. This is another suit that doubles as wearable off-beach. Pair it with a shirt or slacks for a dinner-ready look.

Castamira

VO_RED_2D_1800x1800

Why we love it:

With a corseted bodice and ruffled bust, this suit is the perfect combination of being both feminine and bold.
