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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
