With the Baywatch feature film officially hitting the silver screen today, beach babes will no doubt be flocking to the theatres. While we’re sure that many of them are anxiously awaiting a glimpse of Zac Efron’s abs as lifeguard Matt Brody, the film also offers swimwear inspiration. For those of us who remember the iconic red maillot from the original Baywatch days, the big screen adaptation certainly serves up nostalgia. This time around, the retro suit has been revamped for 2017, with funky zippered accents and a variety of styles.
If you’re wondering how to rock an inspired bathing suit this season, draw your cues from Alexandra Daddario, Ilfanesh Hadera and Kelly Rohrbach. The trio of beauties plays Baywatch girls Summer Quinn, Stephanie Holden and C.J. Parker. We’ve compiled a few suits to help you get the look, and channel your inner surfer babe this summer.
1) ASOS FULLER BUST Exclusive Deep Strap Paneled Longline Bikini Top, $41: For those who prefer a two-piece but still want support for the bust, this structured bikini top may be your solution. The thicker straps and underwire complete the design, while the bright red tone can enhance your summertime glow.
2) Lisa Marie Fernandez Swimwear Neoprene Farrah Swimsuit, $395: If you’re aiming for a sporty yet subtly sexy look, this swimsuit just may be your perfect pick for the pool. The short sleeves and striking black zipper are suitable for the modest fashionista, who still wants to hit the beach.
3) OYE Swimwear Lea Plunge Zip-Neck One-Piece Swimsuit, $500: We are liking this bright crimson-coloured suit, which features a contrasting gold zipper. The plunging deep neckline creates a sultry look, while the traditional one-piece style covers more coverage than a string bikini.
