Last year at Miami Fashion Week Swim, we were astounded to learn that Perfect Tan Bikinis are bikinis that allow you to remove the teeny-tiny spaghetti straps they come with so that your shoulders won't have any tan lines, despite the fact that your boobs will.
In what is the absolute perfect pairing, the Jersey Shore's JWoww has designed a line for the brand, which she describes as "stylish and functional." (One is a hybrid animal print, one has butt ruching, and another has a lace waistband, and they'll be available in February.) Just so you know, the silicon adhesive is activated by heat—basically they work through your sweat—and JWoww explains, "the hotter you get while tanning in the sun, the more your top will stay in place." Her use of the word hotter here, we're sure, has two meanings.
