Swim can be so tough. Boobs/no boobs, butt, thighs, tummy… everyone has their bikini-body Achilles’ heel. But now — thanks be to JEEBUS — larger bikini bottoms are the style du jour. Years ago we tracked down a sick Esther Williams one-piece that was the talk of Coachella. Or at least was admired, like, twice by our housemates in Rancho Mirage. And yes, we mean that Esther Williams. Can you imagine our surprise when we discovered she had her own swim line? So major! Recent years we’ve fanned out over Aussie label Lover and their lace bikinis and one-pieces and now we are lusting after swimwear line Lilibon. Started just a few years ago by Emilie Bon, the 1940s-inspired brand will have you in a major tizzy over which to choose. The Antoine ($150) in navy with its convertible straps deserves more than just pool time, and the sporty strapless Lola ($150) in cream lace with a navy trim helps you avoid the dreaded tan lines. The Will ($150) comes in the prettiest floral print you’ve ever seen and is available for pre-order now. All tops and bottoms are sold separately so you can choose exactly the right size for both halves of your body, and for that we would like to give Emilie a standing ovation. You will love this stuff.
