If you've taken a look at the swimsuit shopping guide and decided you want a two-for-one deal—one designer, blogger, Australian swimwear champ and another brand—then take a look this season's swimsuit collaborations. Each are currently shoppable, and offer some affordable options for awesome designer beachwear. Take a look below.
2. Mara Hoffman for Everything But Water: Swimsuit maven Mara Hoffman took her usual print-heavy, pastel-colored fare and jacked up the neon. It arrived in stores and online this week and includes the two suits above plus one caftan for $132.00 to $253. It's less than you'd pay for a straight-forward Hoffman, plus you'll get an extra shot of color.
3. GabiFresh for SwimSuitsForAll: Blogger GabiFresh teamed up with plus-sized swimsuit brand SwimSuitsForAll for a collection of $68 bikinis in sizes 10 to 22. As Gabi notes on her blog, "They are sold in sets only, not separates. There is no underwire in the tops, only soft cups—they are comparable to any other soft cup bikini, support wise. These aren't control top bottoms. That said, if you are looking for a bit more control, the jewel print and galaxy suits provide more than the neon suits."
4. Zimmermann at Net-a-Porter: Swimsuit demi-gods have branched out into board shorts, which are on sale exclusively at Net-a-Porter. Scope the four floral options for up to $220 a pop. · 8 Places to Shop for the Perfect Swimsuit on the Internet [Racked]
