I Own Over 90 Bikinis, and These Are the Ones I Wear the Most

I’ve shared a variety of swim-related stories, from the brands I always recommend to my friends and the swimwear trend that weirdly makes me feel super “rich,” to name a few of my favourites. To add to your editor-approved swimsuit shopping list, today I’m sharing the rotating set of bikinis I wear on repeat.

There are certain details that I look for in a swimsuit, and each of these styles has earned a special spot in my summer rotation this year. I’ll be the first to admit I own a ridiculous amount of swimsuits, so a style really has to earn my approval to gain wear time in my pool-hopping world. Whether I’m lounging in the sun in Los Angeles or practicing my best “Barbie feet” pose on vacation in Greece, these are the select bikinis (and a couple one-pieces) that I trust and wear the most. Shop the bikinis I’m posting about and wearing the most this summer below.

I've had my eye on the London-based swimwear brand Hunza G ever since it debuted the two-piece ruffled set (which I also own). I finally got my hands on this bandeau-style top, and it's become my go-to when I want to focus on suntanning for the day.

I first saw this Tularosa swimsuit on Revolve's PR manager, Simone, and immediately added it to my shopping cart. It's insanely flattering and the colour-blocking detail gives the illusion of an itty-bitty waist.

We introduced you to this Italian-based brand earlier this summer, and since then retailers like Farfetch and Net-a-Porter have picked up the eye-catching swimwear line.

I'm sure you've seen this swimwear trend on your Instagram feed. I'm a fan and early adopter of the chain-belt-and-bikini look. As for the bikini bottoms I'm wearing, I own the style in two colours from Reina Olga. She makes the perfect cheeky bottoms, in my opinion.

I'll admit I was saving this blue-and-white bikini for the perfect Santorini occasion. Two things to note: The straps are adjustable, and the bottoms are very low.

Okay, so this isn't a bikini, but it still deserves a shout-out. The thing I like about this Static Swimwear one-piece is the deep-V neckline and the low-cut back.

As I've mentioned before, Monica Hansen is the unexpected bikini brand that I've worn the most this summer. If you're into the loincloth trend, I highly suggest the California Dreaming string bottoms.

The celeb-approved brand Sommer Swim is known for minimalistic silhouettes and classic colours and prints like the below leopard number.

I discovered this up-and-coming swim brand thanks to a DM on Instagram. I was looking for more string bikinis to add to my collection and fell hard for this fruit-print one.

This particular bikini is no longer available at Aerie, but the high-rise bikini-bottom style is my go-to whenever I'm feeling a tad bloated. Plus, the brand offers extremely affordable options.

As I pointed out last week, this particular style made me feel super "rich" when I wore it.

Here's another bikini from Oseree that I've been living in this summer. I particularly like the scoop neck and ultra-thin straps.

If you're looking for a simple bikini made from quality Italian materials, I can't recommend this Monica Hansen Beachwear one enough.

My favourite thing to do is wear this black bikini top to the beach and then style it with high-rise shorts for a post-beach look.
