12 Swimsuits Perfect For A Splash Or Some Poolside Lounging

Here in the DMV, we see the public pool as a thing of beauty — a (free!) relaxing respite from the sweltering heat of the city, it's the perfect place to chill out and cool our heels, literally. That said, we believe, as always, that good style reigns supreme at these urban oases. D.C.'s public pools aren't a meat market where you head to flaunt your bod — so itty-bitty bikinis are better left for the rooftops, trendy hotels, or Vegas. After all, we know the last thing you want is an unfortunately timed wardrobe malfunction while chatting up an ex.
With your summer sartorial situation in mind, we've culled the best of the best in swimwear that won't make you blush: adorable hipster shorts, retro bandeaus, and oh-so-flattering one pieces. Lust after these classy cuts in eye-catching neon, adorable ikat, and all-around stunning florals — we promise, these suits definitely won't disappoint.
