Summer is around the corner, and we want to share some fashion advice with our readers that live and breathe fitness. Yes, all women that have been pursuing an athletic body for this season.
We know for sure that having an athletic body is something that requires great discipline. Things like waking up at 5 AM to run a mile and later go to the gym before going to work at 9 AM every day are priceless.
And what about eating? It must need a lot of self-control to eat healthily no matter where you are, from breakfast in a business meeting, lunching with the girls, or to being a mom raising your children…
However, at the end of the day, it’s worth it! There is no better feeling in the world than the indescribable feeling when you try that bikini on and it fits the way you have been imagining… sometimes even better!
Nonetheless, being fit and athletic means you must find brands that design for athletic bodies with a little touch of sexiness. You must think we are crazy when we say that. Well, we are not!
Yes, there are a lot of brands and millions of pieces of swimwear on the market, but to find a sexy and well-designed bikini is not easy, even here in Miami.
That’s why we decided to help a little with these 6 amazingly sexy swimwear brands that we have seen in fashion shows at Miami Swim Week.
6- Frankie’s Bikinis
After the owner, Francesca Aiello, debuted as the youngest swimwear designer at Miami Swim Week in 2014, her designs went viral on Instagram. Her crochet detailing pieces, and her sexy cheeky bottoms look amazing on athletic bodies. Let’s say that Francesca knows how to put a little spice in her designs, plus we loved her runway shows, they are to die for! Like she says, “Friends don’t let friends wear average bikinis”—that’s why we needed to share her designs with you!

5- Robb and Lulu Swimwear
We met the Australian duo Robert and Lulu Zagame at Miami Swim Week 2016. We fell in love with their concept of fashionable and functional pieces. Their luxury fashion swimwear line calls our attention for their sexy touches, the highest quality fabrics, and unique prints. The collection was all hand-illustrated by Lulu in her studio and was first thought of as a piece of artwork before it turns into a textile print. For more information about the brand, please visit: Robbandlulu.squarespace.com
We almost forgot that Lulu, the director of the brand, is not only a designer, she was an ex-elite athlete. That is why they also created another line for athletes. If you are a swimmer that is looking for something different and unique with colors, you must check out this brand: Fitbyrobbandlulu.com or hashtag #FITSQUAD
4- Sirènes De Soleil Swimwear
Nadege Brown and Valentina Arbelaez presented their luxury swimwear at Miami Swim Week 2016! We truly liked their pieces –some of them were beautifully decorated with Swarovski crystals. Nonetheless, the bikinis with minimal coverage were the big deal. Yes, these ladies send a message that some women feel so confident about themselves that they need less fabric and more skin and people loved them for that!
The brand campaigns are about supporting world causes and women’s empowerment. For more information, please visit sirenesdesoleil.com.
3- Mia Marcelle
Designed in Napa Valley, this brand is all about sensual nature and being free-spirited. We remember when we saw its collection in 2016 for the first time at Miami Swim Week. We were like “wow!” when it came to the gorgeous black tiny bikinis at the end of the show. They made us want to run to the gym immediately!
The brand came back in 2017 with a vengeance – featuring pieces with straps, cutouts and cheeky bottoms – all that a sexy body needs in swimwear. You must check out its hot market at Miamarcelle.com
2- Luly Fama
We are fans of Luly Fama designs! This is a brand where the swimwear designers are from Miami and they craft each collection by highlighting women’s silhouettes. The bikinis are super-hot with sexy cuts, stunning colors, and contemporary shapes. They’re a perfect choice for athletic women who are pursuing a bikini that shows their curves, or we must say, their muscles?
We met the brand at the Funkshion last year. They were presenting their latest collection, “Viva Cuba” and we absolutely loved it! Luly Fama also makes athletic leggings and sporty tops for working out, too. For more information, please visit lulyfama.com or #lulyfamaswimwear
This is our favorite sexy swimwear brand for women with athletic bodies! We believe it is the favorite of celebrities too. Khloe Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Jenner, Iggy Azalea, Hanna Davis, and Candice Swanepoel, among others, have been spotted wearing Minimal Animal.
Last year at Miami Swim Week, the brand gained a great deal of attention for its bold minimal coverage designs and super creative runway. The fashion presentation recreated a strip club, complete with pole dancing in the middle with gorgeous models. Believe us, the brand achieved elegance and sexiness at the same time!
We are sharing two of our favorite pieces (we couldn’t pick just one) featured on the runway, check it out!
