Summer is upon us and while I know you are eager to rock a swimsuit on somebody’s beach this summer, before you shop at ASOS (which I love), consider buying black. There are tons of black owned swim brands that are available. Some can be customized, others are already pre-made. Regardless, there’s a little something out there for everyone. Here’s a list of bad ass swimsuit lines that you can rock in all of your black girl glory on the next all-inclusive vacation:
Before expanding to other areas in the fashion and beauty industry, Senegalese beauty Diarra Bousso left her high paying job on Wall Street to pursue her love for art and design in the form of a bathing suit line. Her line is a little on the pricey side, but if you don’t mind paying for quality and intricate designs, then spare no expense!
Basketball Wives alum Draya Michelle broke the mold when she exited the show to focus on building her swimwear line. She saved up $12,000 to invest in her fashion business (one of three if I may add) which is now a $1 million company.
Looking for an Afrocentric option for your tropical getaway? Nakimuli’s designs will save the day. There will be no other swimsuit like it in sight. It may cost you a little more (over $100), but it will surely be a showstopper and favorite keepsake.
Put the slimmer girls to shame in these curvalicious two-pieces from Rue107! Strut your stuff in eye catching colors and prints, and throw on some accessories to have all eyes on you. Rue107 was designed with the curvier girls in mind.
If you’re looking for bright colors, versatile wear options, and mesh, then DestinationSwimwear is for you. Be as risky as you want with peephole bikini tops and high bikini lines, or go for a sexy one piece with a zipper option. You’re going on vacation, so why not be extra?
Will you try any of these black owned swimwear lines this summer?
