Hold it right there, beach babe, you're looking at our old swimwear map! Here's the updated version, with four more additions.

With warm weather year round and multiple swim weeks throughout the summer, we may as well call Miami the swimwear capital of the country. With that, we need to set the precedent for what all our Northern friends should be wearing this summer, shall we not? On the off chance you don't want to join the rainbow of identical Victoria's Secret bikinis by the pool, here's a list of 18 stores in Miami that dedicate themselves almost entirely to swimwear.

Luxury swim stores dominate, however there are a few with pieces that hit under the $100 mark, one of which specializes in cat suits as well. Yes, you read that right. Cat suits. Without further ado, take a dive into our list of swimwear stores arranged from North to South, and let us know if we missed any from West to East in the comments or via email.
