At GNL, we believe that every body is a swimsuit body.

Yet, there is no “one swimsuit fits all.” 

That is why, with the help of sites like Oprah Daily and Cosmopolitan, we compiled a list of inclusive, women-owned swimsuit brands for all shapes, sizes and styles— from bikinis to board shorts. 

Remember: you cannot have fun in the sun without feeling confident, too!

Tired of bikini bottoms that are either too saggy or too skimpy? Kitty and Vibe’s revolutionary sizing system considers your hips, waist and booty so everyone can find their perfect fit. Bottoms’ sizes range from S1 to 3XL2, and tops from A-G. Plus, everything is packaged in 100% recycled materials. It’s hard to find a reason not to shop here.
