The U.S. is currently in the thick of summer. And while pool parties aren't exactly the 2020 way, feeling yourself in a new swimsuit is always deserved. Whether you plan to kick it on your rooftop or terrace in the city, socially distance at the beach on a coastline, or simply shoot a few photos for social media, these swimmies are here to support you and make you feel your best.

From editor-loved brands like Summersalt to some of our newest favorites like Castamira, Montce, and WeWoreWhat, these are the best brands for whatever style swimsuit you're looking for this summer.

Whenever travel becomes mainstream, safe, and responsible again, these swimsuits will be perfect to wear on your winter getaways and during your summer staycaytions.
