Everyone has different priorities when it comes to swimwear. For some, comfort is king. Others value sun protection and how well it holds up for watersports. And many of us just want a suit that looks cute enough to sunbathe in or one that doesn’t fade after a dip in the lake. Whatever your preference, we have created a list of bathing suits that will make you feel your best at the cottage this summer.
This suit has it all: a fit that was tested on 112 different women for comfort, removable padding, and material that’s quick-drying and fade-resistant. Buy it at Everlane.com.
