Did the iconic red swimsuit ever go out of style? No, not really. But between the buzzy Baywatch 2017 film remake and the ever-rising popularity of the one-piece, we’re expecting to see them all over the place this summer. Swimsuits For All, the e-commerce site known for its wide range of size offerings, just launched a Baywatch-inspired campaign to show off its own Lifeguard Swimsuit ($59), available in sizes 4 through 24 — but you can really get yours anywhere right now.

Whether you shop contemporary brands like Mara Hoffman and Marysia or head to budget-friendly stops like Zara and Aerie, we promise you won't have any trouble finding the right suit for a slow-motion run on the beach this summer.

And now more than ever, the classic red suit is far from basic: Opt for the ’90s high-cut leg look, or go for one of this season’s fun updates, like scalloped edging, plunging necklines, or grommet cut-outs. Shop some of our favorites below.
