Black Suits from the Black Sea

Swim City may be inspired by Sarasota’s pure white sandy beaches and year-round balmy weather, but the wall you’ll find walking through the shop on North Tamiami Trail, was inspired more by darker waters. While Swim City embodies the spirit of the Suncoast culture, store manager Libby declares, “I call it my Black Sea wall.” And it’s easy to see that the wall indeed is brimming with trendsetting BBS (Basic Black Suit) one-pieces, encompassing different sizes and styles for essentially every woman and any body type. With each one more runway-ready than the next, Swim City has you covered (well, partially). Prices range from $35-$198 from varying top designers of swim and resort wear, making it close to impossible to choose which ones to bring to the dressing room.

Some highlights include sexy strappy cut-out looks of Kenneth Cole, subtle simplicity of Bleu by Rod Beattie, tummy control swimwear from Miracle Suit and chlorine resistance material from Reebok. There are also bikinis in our favorite slimming color from Body Glove, Seafolly, Peixoto, Hobbie, Vitamin A and L-Space. From bra size tops with underwire to bandeau and triangle styles, find the ideal fit for you whether you’re floating around Eastern Europe in the Black Sea or basking in the sun on the Florida Keys. And be sure to add more fashion to your beach attire with a hat, tote, pair of sandals or signature piece of jewelry from one-of-a-kind local designer, Diana Kahlenberg, offered only at Swim City. Not to mention, full-time fit specialists will guide you to pieces that best flatter your shape and size, ensuring you’ll find the perfect black suit to either flaunt, forgive, minimize or emphasize whatever you want it to. Move over LBD, summertime is on the horizon and we’re gearing up.
