Acacia Swimwear is still on their big guns, riding the success of their beautiful, super sexy swimwear line. Their sandy bum bikinis have been a big hit over the last couple of years and there's no reason for that to stop.
07/29/2013 16:54:00 PM
One of the new styles for this season is the flutter bikini top.

2013 swimwear season is now upon us and it's time to roll out the latest beach
numbers. Here's what I'm seeing...pastels.
really, really wish I would see more eye popping primary colors. You know,
comic book, RAINBOW colors, but alas, such are the
times that we live in. It must be the sucky economy. It's just too dangerous to
get wild right now for our burgeoning swim designers. Anyway, pastels are nice,
especially if they have a hot, edgy style to go along with their subtle [..]

Prints have had their fun and as much as I love creating, designing and selling printed bikinis, the time has come for solid colors to take the scene.
04/23/2012 12:32:00 PM
There's been a lot of buzz about prints over the last few years, but I have to say, nothing looks fresher, leaner, cooler, cleaner

Swimwear trends that we're already seeing for 2013:
A lot of what was just emerging in 2012 will come front and center for 2013. Here's are some continuations that we are spotting:
High waisted bikinis - The shape is, curvy and close-fitting, accentuating the hips and waistline
Bra tops - Thin, tiny straps going over the shoulders
Lots of lacing and criss-cross straps - Graphic, visually appealing
Cheeky bottoms - Hey, if you've got the bitty bottom, then go for it.
02/23/2012 09:38:00 AM
I'm looking over the swimsuits for Summer 2012 and Cruise 2013 and I'm really liking the neutrals that Cali Dreaming did this year. Perhaps we'll offer a few of their styles in our store. Here's a mini preview:
What do you think? I love them!

Ok...we told you yesterday who would be on the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition: That sweet li'l Kate Upton. (Have you ever seen a smaller bikini? Yikes!) Now, for the other stuff...the models, the swimsuit labels, etc.
There were a few swimsuit labels that really stood out. We have carried most of the brands at one time, or another. Currently we have Tori Praver Swimwear. They had several swimsuits featured in SI Swim. The Lily Cage Bandeau, the Shyla Bikini and [..]

As many of you know, we've recently moved. I can't say that I've moved a lot in my lifetime, but enough to leave a trail in the sand. Here is my retrospective look back on some of the beaches I have intimately known:

It's time give some love to the other blogs out there that are devoted to swimwear and the beach lifestyle. Here are a few of my faves:
Uptake-Beaches This is a blog about travelling and I like that. However, what I really like is their section on beaches. It's very informative and straightforward and includes some wonderful hide-away beaches from around the world.
Bathing News Author, Tala Kolb, muses about life in a bikini, (I'm guessing that she's in at least one 24/7,) and travelling [..]

Crystal Jin Swimwear 2012 - Solaire-Varick Bikini
We've been totally entranced by Crystal Jin Swimwear this season...So much so, that we decided to bring the line in, even though we were somewhat late. We're confident that our customers will love it, once they get a chance to experience the beautiful fabrics, surpurb workmanship and an refined fit. This line has a delecate quality to it, almost lingerie-like, with a silky, sumptuous, touch of luxe. The straps are thin, the cut is elegant, t [..]

OK, OK...Not to dis the BIG swimsuit issue...we love it too! There's a lot of hoopla about who's going to make the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover. We don't know...some people do, but not us....sorry. But, we will be happy to tell you as soon as we know and also tell you about all the scrumptious bikinis and swimsuits that are featured in this year's SI Swimsuit magazine, calendar, etc. It's always a huge deal for the designers and we want to give them lots of kudos for making [..]

We all know about that Swimsuit Issue that is put out by a major sports magazine. It's very nice and good. But, the swimsuit edition that we really like is the one put out by SURFING MAGAZINE. Now, this one is totally devoted to surfing, the surfer girls and the beach lifestyle...YES! It's about time! SURFING MAGAZINE was always a constant, reading staple on our coffee table and it certainly and aptly represents the surf culture...girls included.

Acacia Swimwear shows off its beach confidence this year with some crazy cute, "cutie booty," bikinis that certainly have "cheeky attitudes." Naomi Newirth is the designer for this hot swim label, along with good friend, Lyndie Irons. Their fresh looks and tiny backsides arrive soon, straight from Maui, Hawaii. Here's a peek of what to expect:

It can be ruffled, swathed, or simple. It seems like every swimsuit designer has done a skirted swimsuit, in one form, or another. Maaji Swimwear did a cute, skirted bikini that sort of "swags" across the topline. It's not really a full, skirted swimsuit, but I thought I'd include it in th [..]

Let's face it, the Brazilians have had a corner on the bikini market for...oh, I don't know...30+ years now. It's easy to understand why...The Brazilians live in a constant state of passion and they're especially passionate about the beach and their beach bodies. They love to look good on the sand! The Brazilian swimsuit styles cater to most tastes from ridiculously tiny and youthful, to the luxurious high end swimwear market, for the more discerning customer. Here's our list of Brazilian sw [..]
