Don’t think we forgot about summer.

Yes, some have been wilting away in quarantine suffocated by beach restrictions and curfews, while others are wading out into reopened beaches.

Quarantine body or not, many of us are paying the beach a necessary visit this summer - Hello my friend!

One could argue that the Caribbean does not have seasons as we islanders live carefree in the sun all year ’round.

Others would suggest the sun is one of our national treasures – it’s always there, blazing hot as ever and only recoils at night and for showers of rain.

Well, to ensure we get the best of the summer – all while keeping safe, sanitized, and observing safety protocols – we need a few things.

Chief among these is the right swimwear.

This week’s focus is on the perfect swim for the ladies, be it a bikini, monokini, tankini – you heard right – or otherwise.

Other essentials include sunblock, sunnies, flip flops, a beach bag, the list goes on…

Here’s our hot list of Caribbean swimwear designers for the ladies. Worry not gents, stay in the Loop for help finding the right pair of swim trunks.
