Muscular girls look good in sporty suits, but that doesn’t mean they should wear the same Speedo one-pieces as the local swim team. Color-blocked bikinis inspired by scuba and surf are a much better choice—and right on trend for spring.
Swimsuit Care Guide
Chlorine, salt water, sunscreen, sand, and sweat can take a toll on your swimsuit. A little TLC will make it last longer.
1. After each wearing, turn the suit inside out and hand wash it with a mild detergent in cold water.
2. Rinse the suit well and gently squeeze out excess water.
3. Lay it flat to dry, away from direct sunlight.
Enjoy the sun and remember THAT BEAUTY COMES IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES NOT JUST SIZE 0! Smile and be you because you are Beautiful!
*Don’t forget the sunscreen!
