Q: I’m so tired of my swimsuit taking eons to dry. Help! —Kay Ekblad, via e-mail
A: Here’s the solution: this one-piece from Montreal-based Lolë ($70). The paneled “Maui” maillot is made of chlorine-resistant, quick-drying Swim Tech fabric with an über-comfortable four-way stretch. Need something to throw on post-dip? The breathable and anti-wrinkle fabric of Eco Swim by Aqua Green Shirred Side Dress Cover Up ($85) is knitted out of (yes) coffee grounds, making it sustainable by the sea.
