Basic beach gets an upgrade with bold hues and body-loving shapes.

Express Swim

The latest women’s swimwear from Express is a striking assortment of bold hues and body-loving shapes in this season’s hottest trends. Their always-popular monokini, sexy string bikini and must-have strapless and halter bikini styles come in gorgeous bright solids and on-trend graphic prints.

Picking up on the season’s top trends like nautical-inspired stripes and sleek metallic styles, there’s a bevy of designer details to be found including flirty ruffles, sexy self-tie sides, glam beaded embellishments and polished metal hardware.

When it comes to swimwear, style is only half the equation; equally as important is a flattering fit. Express swimwear offers removable padding in the tops, and bottoms that fit smaller to size for moderate back coverage. Bikinis are offered as separates, which is essential for finding the perfect fit for your figure.

Given the chance to dive into our own Express swimsuit, we opted for the eternally chic nautical-inspired striped bandeau bikini and matching bottom. With removable straps and interesting hardware detail on the bandeau top, this suit is bound to make a splash at the beach this summer!
