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.
