Head for the water with our top 20 swimsuits for summer. By Christene Barberich & Piera Gelardi
We'll be the first to admit: Shopping for a new swimsuit takes discipline…and maybe a shot or two of tequila. And we know it's not just our female friends who shudder at the thought of snapping on spandex while being bathed in fluorescent light. No, shopping for the perfect swimsuit may not always be pretty, but we've found a few incredible options that would make even the most gun-shy skin-bearer more willing to shed those unwanted summer layers. Among our favorites, Lover's wear-all-the-time crocheted one-piece, A.P.C.'s madras-perfect bikini, and the always classic black one-piece from Araks. Read on for more ways to get wet and maybe even a little wild, too.
