Sexy Swimsuits That Redefine "Beach Babe"

Photographed by Aingeru Zorita; Modeled by Bailey Roberts
Our mission this summer is to take the anxiety out of going to the beach — and an excellent bathing suit is key to beating back all that "Do I look okay?" nonsense. Thankfully, designers have stepped up to make suits that are all about style and sexiness for every body type. We enlisted ten New Yorkers — models and women from all walks of life, from size 0 to 18 — to show what a bathing suit should really do: showcase your personal style. Now that's radical. Read on. Shop on. See you at the beach.

It's your body. It's your summer. Enjoy them both. Read more Take Back The Beach stories here.
