SWEAT STYLE: 5 bikinis for the active beach babe

It’s getting hot up in this bitch, and that means it’s that time of year to take dat booty to the water. Whether you’re hitting up the beach or a killer rooftop pool when you’re not in shaking it in class this summer, we know our junkies are gonna keep things moving. We’ve rounded up our fave swimsuits to rock when you wanna be active while keeping things PG-13 so that you can swim, run, whatever -- and look haaawwwt doin’ it -- without fearing that dreaded nip-slip.


This bikini has all of the feature you need to keep everything in its place when you’re running in the sand, including criss-cross straps to evenly distribute weight and underwire to keep things on the up-and-up.

And this one comes with DC instructor Marie’s seal of approval, and she knows what she’s talking about. She says she’s done all of the traditional beach activities in it -- wakeboarding, surfing, slow-motion running a la Baywatch -- with zero problems. “It's awesome and definitely a great suit for anyone who has big boobs and wants to be active!”



Designed by a legit surfer babe, Calavera swimsuits are designed to stay in place no matter how gnarly shit gets. We’re obsessed with their staple Glam top, which is designed to keep the girls supported and covered, even when you fall off your board (or, you know, beach towel).




We know, we know. When you hear Speedo, you think Borat-style banana hammocks and high school swim team practice. But there’s a reason they’re the go-to brand in the swimwear business, and we are absolutely loving this color block two-piece. The built-in bra has your back and the material is supposed to stand up better to sun and chlorine. Plus, the colors just scream #305POP.




Athleta does a lot of their swim tops in bra sizing, so you know you’re getting a good fit for your lady lumps, which is key if you’re going to be wearing it all day. We love the retro-glam feel of the Twister bikini top, which has quick-dry cups and adjustable wide straps that won’t dig into your shoulders.




You trust them with your sports bras, so why not with your bathing suit tops too? Their Race With Me top is made for ladies with C or D cups. We’re digging the design details, like the sheer panels in front and the shape of the back.
