7 Cynthia Rowley Swimsuits That Will Have You Standing Out in a Sea of Beachgoers

The designer’s patterns and cuts are perfect for surfing and lounging.

Cynthia Rowley has always loved being in the water—the designer is obsessed with surfing—so she decided to launch a line of swimsuit-wetsuit hybrids in 2012 to look chic while also being able to move and not worry about a wardrobe malfunction. Since then, she continues to release beautiful prints that stand out in a sea of beachgoers. Four years ago, the brand extended the sizing to be more inclusive. The bathing suit prints are all so gorgeous and have become a staple on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit runway at Miami Swim Week.
