As a chubby teen, you pored over Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue for thinspiration.
As a sexually confused undergrad, you ogled the boobies.
Now, as a reasonably well-adjusted adult, you’re actually checking out the suits.
At least that’s what we were doing when we spotted Sauipe Swimwear. The featured summer collection just became available to us nonmodels. Named after Costa do Sauipe, a beachside locale in Brazil (obv), the suits come in nine groups, sorted by print.
There’s the Green Tie Dye collection with its string bikini and strapless one-piece. The Circles set includes cutesy bottoms with a purple ruffle. In the Sunrise group: a dramatic white suit with a straight neckline and asymmetrical shoulder strap.
The pieces come in every imaginable style and ring in around $100.
Choosing will be an issue.
Available at Pink Blush, 6554 Bird Road, South Miami (305-663-1083); online at sauipeswimwear.com.
