10 Times You’ll Be Happy You Have a Sporty Bikini

Joanna Rentz

My first sporty swimsuit was from the local sporting goods store. My mom and I picked it up for our family’s annual summer camping trip to Lake Tahoe. It had a peculiarly high neck and was bright teal and fluorescent yellow, similar to the fish you see when snorkeling. The shiny suit was made for serious high-speed swimming, as far as I could tell, and I was positively not that kind of swimmer. Choices were limited at the tiny shop, so off I went with my new suit. Overall, my ridiculous racing suit supported me well in all of my lakeside vacation activities, though I certainly stood out in a crowd. 

Thank goodness we don’t have to sacrifice style for support anymore! Whether you are chasing your kids around the pool or kayaking, these sporty bikinis will have you feeling confident, chic, and — most of all — supported.
