If holiday wear is what you want to live in, then Maivy has a host of options to keep you cool. If you’re bored of the Speedos and Decathlons you see everywhere, Maivy’s collection is indie-cool. Find one-shoulder numbers that almost seem retro, leopard print tankini options and wrap-kinis as well. And, of course, cover-ups and skirts so you can lounge and explore in the heat while bringing on the heat!

The Summer House

Known for their sustainable practices, comfortable options and clean silhouettes, The Summer House’s swimwear options don’t disappoint! Their options, though limited, are classic, comfy, functional, and also look great. They have both one- and two-piece options that embrace minimalism, and are classics. The swimwear is made of econyl, which is basically recycled fishing nets and wires! 

Price: INR 2,000 upwards

Size: XS to XL. They also have a great reselling programme if you're unhappy with the size and/or fit for whatever reason. 

Flirtatious

Flirtatious

As the name would suggest, the collection from Flirtatious is flirty, slightly cheeky, vibrant and young. A designer brand, the price range might be slightly on the higher end, but it’s definitely worth it. Cut outs, overlaps, fringe detailing, tie detailin, and mesh detailing are what you will find in their collections, among other things. What’s cool is that, unlike the other brands on this list, Flirtatious has an extensive collection and is inspired by various other aesthetics too. Think Geometric cuts, retro-inspired, athletic yet sexy, and a bunch of celeb spots as well. We’ll leave you to go check it out yourself. 

Price: INR 5,000 upwards

Size: XS to XL, but every design can be custom made to your exact measurements. 

Salt Skin

For contemporary, boho beach vibes (like you’re chilling at a luxury beach resort), check out Salt Skin. The Goa-based brand stocks bikinis, monokinis, coverups and accessories all set for the beach. We are loving their unique crochet collections, which feature plenty of tassels and shells, and the collab with Masaba. Their one-pieces range from bright and popping to contemporary with Indian prints. In their bikini section, they have both high waist and classic string bikini bottom options. 

Price: INR 2,800 upwards

Size: XS to XL

Papaaya Swimwear

Based out of Mumbai, Papaaya Swimwear will make you want to brink out the cocktails, find the sun and lounge on the beach. In fact, their swimwear collection is inspired by cocktails! While there aren't too many styles (I mean, really, how many bikini styles really are there!), that they're named after cocktails won us over! Blue Lagoon, Pink Flamingo and Lavendar Martini are options. Each in the corresponding colours, with a hint of a different design. One's a scoop crop top, another is a chic one-shoulder bikini and the third has a tie-up back. 

A colleague picked up the Black Russian—a triangle bikini top with either a high-waist bottom or a cheeky low-waist one. While the strings seem flimsy, they're really not. What was appreciated more though was that the swimwear came in a box with an adorable pendant, and a hand-written note. Oh, plus a cocktail umbrella for proper vibes. 

Price: INR 1,299 upwards

Size: S to L

House Of Nidhi Kampani

House Of NM

House Of Nidhi Kampani has been designed keeping all body types in mind, and we’re here for the size-inclusity of their collection. Almost all the swimsuits have been made with tummy-tucker fabrics and darker tones to cater to the curvier figures. And that is just the Signature collections. The HONM Basics features more fun and sporty swimwear with nautical prints pops of colour and flirty cut out designs. 

Price: INR 1,200 for separates and INR 3,000 for single-piece suits 

Size: XS to XXXL 

Shivan & Narresh

Sure Shivan & Narresh are a bit more expensive than your usual swimwear, but they’re so good at their designs. Plus, veterans in the fashion industry counts for something, right? With monokinis, bikinis, trikinis (yes, that’s a thing!) they have options of all kinds. Interlaced, cut out, high-waist, or with a belt, you can really flatter your body shape with these options. In true Shivan & Narresh aesthetic, graphic, bold prints and pops of colour rule the designs. Most of their range is also made of econyl. 

Price: INR 12,000 upwards

Size: XS to XL 

Verandah

Verandah

Worn by the likes of Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhat, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sunny Leone, among others, Studio Verandah has simple styles with striking prints. Plunge-neck one-piece suits with Bougainvillea prints for girls who aren’t too busty; Black Bougainvillea printed ones with underwire to support a heavier bust or one-shoulder pieces, they have something for everyone. What I really like about the brand is that they have the same prints for the different designs—bikinis to halter bandeaus. They even have more functional full-sleeved tops to pair with high-waist bottoms, crop tops with bikini bottoms or hipster ones. 

While prices on the website are in dollars, starting at 125, the flagship store in Goa will sort you out with IRL checking.

Size: XS to XXL 

Nadi Nadi

Using a range of materials like spandex, econyl, polyester and lycra, among others, different swimsuits will suit different body shapes. Of course, they do the job of being perfect for the beach, though some can be styled for partywear looks too).
