Hello, summer! Who’s ready to hit the water?! I’ve been lounging by the pool in Austin while planning beach vacations for this summer and shopping for swimsuits. I need a swimsuit that isn’t just for lounging but will stay on during an outdoor activity and last through several seasons so that’s why I looked through Athleta Swim.

Athleta has wrap bikinis, over the shoulder, halter, one-pieces, high neck, crop, bandeau, tankinis, and different coverage bottoms so there’s something for everyone! You can also shop by cup sizes or Aqualuxe fabric and reversible swimsuits. For me, I don’t need that much support and would prefer less fabric and something more strappy but won’t fall off when swimming or paddleboarding. I picked out the Prism Back Bikini and Notsostring Bottom in white and here’s why it’s the perfect white bikini for summer!
I’m here in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico wearing the Prism Back Bikini and Notsostring Bottom – love the strappy prism back detail! The molded cups (no need to search for removable pads in the washer!) and adjustable straps on the Prism Back Bikini makes it perfectly fitted to my body. It’s made of LYCRA XTRA LIFE™, an ultra-resilient fabric that lasts 5x longer. I’ve worn this swimsuit every day on this 7-day Mexico trip and it still looks brand new!
The Notsostring Bottom is also made from the LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ SPANDEX with UPF 50+. The looped sides are securely tied so you don’t have to worry about them coming undone. I went swimming with this bikini in the Pacific Ocean in Puerto Vallarta!
Athleta’s Sunlover UPF Dress is the perfect swimsuit cover-up because the material is stretchy and comfortable, and provides actual coverage without being see through. How cool is it that the dress has UPF 50+, which protects you from the sun’s potentially harmful rays while the mesh details keep you cool? It’s also made from recycled nylon, a high-performance fabric that helps lessen our impact on the world.
I love how easily I can slip on the Sunlover UPF Dress after swimming and go straight to lunch while looking chic!
