Fav Swimsuits from Black Designers


While checking out swimsuits this season, I came across so many favorites.  I love getting the chance to support and recommend fellow black owned businesses and so I have chosen some of my favorites that I found in my online shopping endeavors.

I am really into the off the shoulder/bardot type look this year so I am loving Andrea Iyamah’s tropical feather print Carly swimsuit.  The frills on the sleeves really add the extra something to this suit.


Loving the boldness of this Ankara print two piece swimsuit by Red Star. Hard to choose a favorite with all of the wonderful pieces and fabrics in this shop.  Ankara prints are some of my favorites and the swimsuit does not disappoint.


Cheryl Jones’ Asherah Swimear has some wonderful prints this season and I am really loving this Raven one piece.  The varying tones of brown really come together in this swimsuit.  Head over to the site and checkout the back of this swimsuit!!


The print, the off the shoulder, the ruffles. All a win in this Blue Aztec swimsuit by Nakimuli.  This line always knocks it out of the park for me.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the beautifully designed clothing at Nakimuli, head over there now!


This just makes me want to be far, far away!! The ultimate travel suit, African Flower suit by Rue107. I love how fiercely tropical it is and the extra halter piece looks great for support.  Great options for plus size beauties in this shop too!



Ok so I’m a little bit biased but Cape Verde by Monif C.  is too dope!!  This suit has a matching coverup and this shop is full of curvy girl suits!


Did you find some really great swimsuits this season?  Share some of your favorites below or just some of your favorite black fashion designers!
