Growing up, I remember thinking there were only two bikini top options: sports bra style or triangle.

So many people hate swimsuit shopping, but I love it, especially since discovering swimwear that actually fits me. Seriously, full bust swimwear is a life changer.

Well-fitting swimwear is like cute lingerie that’s socially-acceptable to wear outside. In other words, it’s the best.
Just in time for warmer weather (and the last few winter vacations!), Yandy’s new swim collection is here with enough scintillating prints and eye-popping design to satisfy even the most particular swimwear fans. While Yandy has, of course, carried swimwear for years, this is only their second time producing such an extensive range. And Yandy puts everything they’ve learned about swim on full display with more than 100 style split into six mini-collections.
