9 More Bomb AF Black-Owned Swimwear Brands

MOOD: Summertime fine '19.

Life & Travel

It's time to send that last email, turn on your OOO response, and set your sights on your next beach vacation. However, you can't jet-set off without the perfect suits for Insta-worthy snaps and bikinis that will turn heads (if that's what you're looking for) while you sip a piña colada on a white sandy beach.


Since you all enjoyed our first installment of black-owned swimwear companies, we thought it was only right to keep the lists coming. Here are nine swimwear designers to support as you prep for your getaway.

MBM Swim

MBM Swim is designed with boss babes in mind, especially since the line created by Marcia B Maxwell is "designed for sophisticated women who never ask for attention, they command it." Their sleek and colorful designs give you structure and slimming silhouettes that look good on and off the sand.

Shop MBM Swim here.

All Dem' Shades

Wanna wear your pro-blackness on your sleeve, well, on your bawdy? You'll want to add these empowering one pieces to your swimwear collection.

Shop All Dem' Shades here.

Asherah Swim & Sport

Cheryl "Cejae" Jones is at the helm of a swimwear brand that has sexy string one-pieces, stunning cover-ups (I'm eyeing the leopard print one), and even "sport" offerings that are great for a morning run or a post-beach workout.

Shop Asherah Swim & Sport here.

Keva J Swimwear

If you're looking for a one-piece that will be the talk of the resort, Keva J, has over twenty different styles and colors to choose from that will flatter a range of body types.

Shop Keva J Swimwear here.

Trish Atelier

Neon is the new black, and Trish Atelier's handmade suits are lighting up vacation wardrobes. Whether you're looking for cheeky monokinis or string bikinis that show off your hot cross buns, Trish's line has something for you!

Shop Trish Atelier here.

EgoSwim

This small but mighty collection of swimwear has a high waist swimsuit with a supportive underwire halter top that I think would look great on everyone.

Shop EgoSwim here.

Kloset Envy

Kloset Envy's swimwear has been seen on supermodels like Winnie Harlow and is making a splash with many ladies across IG. Their site offers a range of apparel from denim to bodysuits to swimwear.

Shop Kloset Envy here.

Riot Swim

I love their swimwear as much as I love their hashtag, #RelaxItsJustAss — because they're right. You'll enjoy showing off your curves in their sexy high-waisted, bright orange bikini or keep it simple with their cream one-shoulder design.

Shop Riot Swim here.

Kishara Marie

Headed to a nude beach or want to show off your bod, Kishara's customizable barekini will take up little space on your luggage and on your curves. As Kishara says, the barekini is "making slim girls feel thick and thick girls feel like dinner is served." We see no lies.

When it comes to reproductive rights in this country, things have gone left fast. Well, if you’re on the outside looking in that is. In this case, being on the outside simply means those of us who weren’t on the frontlines of activism as it pertains to abortion access. Those who had been anticipating this outcome were laying the groundwork for the overturning of Roe v. Wade for quite some time now. And honestly, it didn’t take much to notice the direction things were headed in with the many trigger bans. So perhaps I underestimate all of our intelligence when I say those on the frontlines understood what was going on when in reality I think many of us could see the writing on the wall, but just thought we had more time.

The Best Crystals For Attracting Love & Romance

As a firm believer in energy, crystals are something I naturally gravitate towards. There is a crystal for everything: crystals for luck, crystals for money, crystals for stress relief, crystals for healing. For this reason, these naturally-occurring wonders of the world make excellent tools for manifestation and intention-setting in your life. What you manifest in life is based on your vibration, so crystals act as a perfect caveat to raising your vibration and therefore attracting what you want most, including love.

How To Date Someone Who Is Not Your Physical 'Type'

I, like so many other people, have often struggled with the idea of dating people who aren’t my type. It’s not that I’m not open to dating someone I’m not attracted to, it’s really just a matter of how? How do you reject everything you know and give something new a chance? Especially when it seems that we’re not authentically attracted to “something new” because it is oftentimes so different from who we’d usually pursue. Admittedly, attraction can be superficial upon meeting anyone considering all you see are looks. However, shouldn’t you be able to enjoy your person physically in addition to all of the other stuff?
