There are many emotional stages one goes through while online shopping for swimwear. Excitement (for hot girl summer), shock (at some of the prices), intrigue (of how much booty you will be showing this year), exhaustion (there’s literally a million swimwear brands), confusion (is that actually meant to go in the water?) and so on. Knowing where to begin is as difficult as knowing where to end and click place your order. Sometimes it takes until August to figure it out.

To help you avoid this emotional roller coaster, we’ve rounded up our favorite suits for 2021 from the brands we love and trust.

A few years ago it seems as though we all gave up on mix-and-match suits. There's nobody better to make it cool again than Candice Swanepoel's hit brand, Tropic of C.

This London-based sustainable swimwear brand is anything but boring. Their suits hit the mark on being structurally interesting while being extremely flattering.

Sleek and chic! You cannot go wrong with a Matthew Bruch piece. Bandeaus can be intimidating, but this one keeps its structure with boning along the sides.
