When it comes to swimwear, it’s no surprise that some of the best designers in the world come from Brazil. After all, not only is the country the namesake of the fashion girl–favorite cheeky cut, but it’s also widely known for its envy-inducing beaches and the festive culture that comes with them. Sure, Australia is home to some of the best swim designers on the planet, but this summer, why not look to Brazilian brands to broaden your options?
Brazilian swimsuit designers know that what you wear on the beach is just as important as what you wear for any other occasion, and they thus offer everything from sleek, sultry styles with classic silhouettes to cutouts to tropical-inspired prints and fun embellishments. If you feel the same way, there have been a handful of brands that Brazilian fashion girls simply can’t stop wearing. Scroll down below to see which brands Brazilian girls love.
