Trend of the Week: Best Bikinis

Looking for the perfect bikini? Annmarie O'Connor has the best in show.


Whether jetting off or staycationing this summer, good weather is a given. All the more reason to embrace the beach with a beautiful bikini and some body positive vibes.

Finding the perfect two-piece to flatter the figure has never been easier. Are you ready to chase the sun in style?


BIG BOOBS: Reign in your pair with underwire cups.

LOVE HANDLES: The higher the waist, the smoother the silhouette.

PETITE GAMS: This season’s high cut bottoms give the illusion of length.

BEAUTIFUL BOTTOM: Rock a retro style brief to prevent any cheeky peek-a-boo moments.

WELL-ARMED: Channel this season’s off-the-shoulder ruffle into your bikini top for extra coverage.

YUMMY TUMMY: Pin-up style ruching (as seen at Norma Kamali) makes a midriff look sleek and sexy.

KILLER CURVES: Create more curves with ruffles and frills at the bustline, hip or hem.
