They are all SO gorgeous! It’s hard to choose one! Tribal prints just make me want summer more and more.

Glad to see this trend is continuing on through the seasons. Love that it’s so colorful and fun. :)



i really wish so many of free people swimsuits didn’t have high rise bottoms. even the model seems to struggle pulling it off as flattering. i love the print of the one above, but frankly, they look like granny panties, and that’s not attractive on anyone.


LOVE the high waisted bottoms. Sorry Mel I have to disagree with you. I am getting that suit for sure.

I hate high waisted swim bottoms as well…they look adorable on the models and on certain body types but I’m 5’3 and they look RIDICULOUS. But if the come as separates you can always get the top and find a pair of solid matching bottoms! I mix and match all the time. LOVE the Bustier top…getting tired of “vegan leather” though…I know FP wants to be earth friendly but personally I like real leather and I don’t like paying as much for faux as I would for real even if it’s super cute.


Keep it coming with the vegan leather! I don’t care to wear the skin of an animal on my body.

I agree with you, mel, I’m almost 5’9 and a model but I still wouldn’t wear those bikini bottoms. I love high waist if it goes all the way up to the natural waistline or a bit higher, but in-between just makes me look likes frump. I think you need a small waist-hip ratio to pull them off as they widen your hips.
