Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season is often met with horrified shrieks of denial, frantic trips to the gym, or even late night Google searches for “How many calories are in red wine?” This year I decided to do things a little differently and try to get excited about swimsuit season instead.

I mean, tropical vacations, lazy days on the beach, and fun, flirty suits in bright colors, bold prints, and eye-catching cuts? Sign me up!

To help get you in the mood for swimsuit season Moi Contre La Vie has partnered with InStyle Swimwear to bring you some fun bathing suit styles to swoon over and even a little discount to get you started!


{Chloe Cozumel by L*Space}

I’m kind of obsessed with this suit!

I love the basic black and the rainbow print, and I even love them mixed together. This set is not only incredibly flattering, but quite functional. If you’re like me and enjoy spending your vacations being active {SCUBA diving, horse back riding, ATVing, parasailing…} then this is the suit for you. Really pretty and eye-catching, but it’ll stay on and stay comfortable for the day!


{The Ava by Vitamin A}

I love the lace-up details on this suit, they give it a flirty vibe, and the olive-green hue is really flattering – Not only will it look lovely against a tan, but it’s a great color for the ghostly pale like me as well.

Keep in mind though that strapless suits aren’t for everyone – If you’re heavier on top you may want to find a style with more support so you’re comfortable & secure.


{Savasana by L*Space}

Speaking of active – If you’re in the market for a suit that’s functional enough for your weekly lap swimming as well as knock-em-down cute, the Savasana should make the list.

I love the sporty chic style with the little cut-outs as well as the grey & yellow color combination, it’s both versatile and fun.

If you’re in the mood for a one-piece don’t think for one moment that you’ll be relegated to the boring or frumpy section of the swimwear shop. This sleek one-piece is classic and flattering, but still sexy as hell.

And with something as beautiful and versatile as this suit you’ll probably want to just pull on a maxi skirt or wrap a sarong around your waist and head straight from the beach to the restaurant!


{Raja Bandeau by Pily Q}

If “less is more” is your go-to when it comes to your vacation style than this suit is a killer choice – The silhouette is minimal but the print & colors are fun and bold.

The simple bandeau style is really easy to wear – And accessorize – And the rolled sides on the bottoms will flatter a number of body types.
