Monica Wise, the designer for the coveted L*Space Swimwear, conquered beach-loving girls everywhere and has moved on to the fine wine generation. Inspired by old Hollywood’s classic Esther Williams films of the 1950’s, the MAIO Swim collection was born. The line is full of pin-up silhouettes that really have stylish women in mind.

Let’s be real here: everyone has areas on their body they want to cover. But just because you want to hide that tummy, or cover those stretch marks, does not mean that you need to compromise your personal style. I love this collection because the one piece swimsuit designs make the regular bikini look boring. Have you ever seen anything like the Madonna One Piece in Taupe? The grey shade with black piping gives it such a luxurious look. Pass me a glass of champagne when I’m wearing that!

The next best option if you aren’t too keen on one pieces is the high-waisted trend that is all the rage right now. Celebrities like Taylor Swift, Ke$ha and Ashley Greene have been spotted wearing this pin-up look out in the waves. Although this MAIO style comes in a variety of colors, the Textured Tribal Midkini in orange really stood out to me. I feel like this is a rare color in swimwear, yet it’s perfect for a day in the sun?! Mind boggling, I tell you. The good news is it’s finally here and looks great on every skin color.


Embrace this trend, ladies. And be sure to look out for more colors in these silhouettes!
