This post was sponsored by Athleta, all opinions hereafter are my own opinion.

The start of summer can be met by a mix of emotions, on one hand, you’re thrilled to have longer, warmer days, but on the other, this also means the start of swimsuit season. We all have own attitudes towards shopping for swimwear, but more than often the process can end up being discouraging and have us covering up rather than embracing our bodies. However, giving into the two-piece doom and gloom doesn’t have to be the answer to your swimwear needs. In fact, there are TONS of fashion-forward suits that will keep you looking your best at the beach, pool, and while playing your favorite water sports activities.

I’ve shared (OK, RAVED) about the fit and style of Athleta activewear in the past, and have to continue the sentiment for the 2018 summer swimwear styles. Sometimes activewear companies nail fit and fabric but miss the mark when it comes detail and style. This is NOT the case with Athleta’s summer arrivals. Not only are they made to help you move, they also look the part! Normally, I can pinpoint 1 or 2 styles that I like when shopping for suits but had the hardest time settling on just a few styles. I was shocked to see cut-outs, stripey prints, single straps, and even zippers on their array of styles. Of course, I immediately had to pick up this black front-zipper one-piece that made for the perfect pool-side bond girl moment.

The attention to detail (with fit in mind) is incredible! The back of suit flatters the natural shape and is incredibly supportive, I would definitely recommend this to any water-sport enthusiast who may be looking for a suit that's more streamlined that won’t require tugging for readjustments. In addition to the Bonaire Zip Front One Piece, I also selected a geometric cut-out style. Typically, I stay away from this kind of trendy cut, but the fit was so perfect for my body shape that I was convinced I needed it! I love the versatility of the detachable double strap and high waisted fit. 

The materials used in both suits are well made with optimal stretch so finding the perfect fit for your own silhouette is a breeze! I ended up going with a regular Medium in both but could have sized down in this one.
