Where to find the best swimsuit for hitting the beach with your date.

Joining your man for a summer getaway, a BBQ at his parents' beach house, or a game of volleyball with his buddies? We help you choose the perfect swimsuit:


A Sun and Sand Getaway: Ditching town for a romantic beach getaway? Bring out your sexiest suit and flaunt your curves. Showcase your bustline with a flattering sweetheart neckline, or show off the results of your twice-weekly spin class in a pair of curve-hugging hotshorts. Or, go retro with a slinky 50's-style one-piece swimsuit that channels Marilyn Monroe.


We Love: Pinup Girl Clothing's retro separates and one-piece swimsuits. Feeling bold? Try the Marilyn, a gorgeous, gathered and skirted one-piece in a feisty leopard print. Craving separates? The Sweet Cheeks bikini looks good enough to eat, in a tasty cherry pattern.


His Parents' Beach House: Repeat after us: cover it up. It'll mess with your tan lines, we know, but hell hath no fury like a man's conservative grandmother scorned. Spare her and the rest of his family from seeing all your goodies, and pick a classic and classy suit. Rule of thumb: if you need a Brazilian wax to wear the swimsuit bottom you have in mind, go for something with more coverage. And make sure to test out your top, especially if you're donning a two-piece: do a bounce test and a lean test in the dressing room. You don't want to give his little brother a show when you're reaching for a burger at the family BBQ.


We Love: the classic lines of the halter tankini top by Victoria's Secret's Body by Victoria (pictured). The padding is light (and removable if you don't need the extra oomph) and it has an extra wide band so you feel more secure and supported. Pick from 13 colors and patterns and match it with any style and color bottom for a suit that's uniquely you.
