The hot issue: Summer swim for everyone!
Summer's here and the beaches are open...this is the Hot Issue! (Photo: via Pinterest)
Don’t think we forgot about summer.
Yes, some have been wilting away in quarantine.
Yes, we’ve all been restricted access from beaches and rivers by the government for over two months.
However, the re-open orders have landed in the knick of time, and quarantine body or not, many of us are ready to be free in the sea.
One could argue that Jamaica does not have seasons as we live carefree in the sun all year ’round.
Others would suggest the sun is one of our national treasures – it’s always there, blazing hot as ever and only recoils at night and for showers of rain.
Well, to ensure we get the best of the summer – all while keeping safe, sanitized, and observing safety protocols – we need a few things.
Chief among these is the right swimwear.
This week’s focus is on the perfect swim for the ladies, be it a bikini, monokini, tankini – you heard right – or otherwise.
Other essentials include sunblock, sunnies, flip flops, a beach bag, the list goes on…
Sidenote: All the designers mentioned are capable of making custom fits, so, as one viewer suggested, 'big belly people' can slip into just about any design shown below.
Here’s our hot list of Caribbean swimwear designers for the ladies. Worry not gents, Stay in the loop for help finding the right pair of swim trunks.
