Introducing the SI Swimsuit Best of Awards

For the first time, the 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue will include official selections of favorite swim products and places.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit has been at the forefront of swimwear, fashion and women’s lifestyle since 1964. For years, our editors have traveled the globe searching for the most beautiful locations, fashion and trends. This year, we are bringing to life our first Best of Awards. Brands will be able to submit for a chance to get their products and places recognized by our roster of cover models, expert makeup artists, hairstylists and editors as we vote on the best in swimwear, beauty, fitness and travel.

View the winners of the 2023 Best of Awards in the following categories. 


There are a few main factors to take into account when embarking on the search for the crème de la crème of swimwear: cut, fit, material, sustainability, functionality and, of course, style. Luckily, here at SI Swimsuit we consider ourselves to know a thing or two about great swimsuits. In the making of the Swimsuit Issue each year, we source hundreds, even thousands, of suits. Check out our winners for the best swimsuits among six style categories: Sporty Swimsuit, Statement One Piece, Statement Bikini, Triangle Bikini, Sexy Swimsuit and Sustainable Swimsuit.

Apparel & Accessories 

Everyone knows that accessories are what complete a look—and finding timeless staples that never go out of style can be difficult. SI Swimsuit picked the perfect additions to elevate your wardrobe and your beach day.Read more about all of our best of accessories winners here.

Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness has always been a pillar of the SI Swimsuit franchise. Models are up to date with the latest and greatest ways to stay healthy and get active and our brand partners are always seeking and sharing advice on how to live up to our potential. The SI Swimsuit team picked a holistic winner—that prioritizes and was founded on the idea of physical fitness paired with mental and spiritual health.


Whether it's an SI Swimsuit Issue shoot or just a typical hot summer day, SI Swimsuit will honor the beauty products that help you look your best all day long; from makeup and haircare to essential skincare–especially sunscreen.


The SI Swimsuit team has traveled to every nook and cranny of the world for various photo shoots and has experienced hundreds of landscapes, cultures, languages, experiences and, of course, hotels. Looking for a destination for your next girls trip? We have the most perfect suggestion.
