    While the beach is a year-round draw for some, it's getting to be that time of year when a visit to your favorite beach or cove is no longer optional. And sure, we're world-renowned for our local lithe ladies, but curves are just as welcome – and sometimes more so – on our sands.

    Just in time comes local design hero Red Carter, with a new swim line for ladies who want to flaunt every inch of their beautiful curves. With 30 styles that flatter, emphasize, and enhance what you've got instead of hiding it away, these suits feature convertible straps, skirted bottoms, asymmetrical shapes, padded removable cups, and waistline slimmers – all of which make a day at the beach more about sexy confidence than covering up in the shade. And remember, this is all coming from Miami's Red Carter, so you know it's designed perfectly for our beaches. So when they land at a Macy's or Lord & Taylor near you, grab a few and get out there, girl! The world is waiting.
