If a typical day at the beach for you includes playing volleyball and laying in the sun, you need a bikini that can pull double duty. Because, to paraphrase Elle Woods, whoever said sporty couldn't be stylish was seriously disturbed. Long gone are the days when athletic suits were relegated to chlorine-scented swim meets (been there, done that, still have the swim cap).
Now, sporty swimsuits come in tons of flattering styles, bold colors, and fun patterns. Whether you're looking for something low-cut but supportive or a high-neck bikini offering tons of coverage, you'll find the perfect swimsuit that keeps everything in place from one of these WH-approved swimwear brands. In many cases, you already love 'em for their leggings and sports bras, so why not add swimsuits to the list?
And because athletic bikinis are designed for all kinds of bodies and bust sizes, you can choose the one that best suits your shape and personal style. Try something with thick straps and a racerback design to emulate your favorite sports bra, a bralette top for a more subtle sporty bikini option, or a v-neck that gives you cleavage, comfort, and security. Whether you're playing badminton, going for a run on the beach, or swimming laps in the ocean, there's a stylish option for all your active swimwear needs, trust.
From Athleta to Roxy, these are the 12 best sporty swimsuit brands that offer both fashionable and functional bikinis, so you can stay active all day long.
