1. What SwimSpot swimsuit are you crushing on at the moment and why?
Right now I am totally crushing on the Splendid Color Blocked Sport Bikini Top and Splendid Color Blocked High Waist Bottom. It’s a perfect pink color and the high-waisted lace up sides are so adorable - bringing all the retro summer vibes!
2. When shopping for swim for your athletic body type what is the most important thing? Any tips for woman with a similar figure?
For me the number one most important thing when looking for a swimsuit is something that will accentuate my curves. With an athletic body type, the wrong cut can make me look boxy. I love a high-waisted bottom and a feminine supportive top for my chest. I'd tell women to find a suit that will play up your best feature - whether that be your abs, arms or legs!
3. What is your favorite swimsuit trend right now?
My favorite swimsuit trend right now are sports bra cut tops! They give me the support I need in a top, unlike many tie tops that pull on my neck. You never have to comprise style and functionality with this style. I just love that I can feel cute laying out poolside and just as comfortable jumping into a game of beach volleyball.
