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.

Banana Moon

Banana Moon's swimsuits are incredibly affordable (on average, pieces run at around $55) and you'll equally find as many conservative pieces here as you will cheek revealing. [Photo: Aventura Mall]

Everything But Water

Copy Link
Everything but Water has been revamping all of their stores as of late, and their new Aventura and Dadeland locations are no exception. The store is organized by color, so you'll find suits from Luli Fama, Vitamin A, Karla Colletto and more for every body type and age. [Photo: Everything But Water]

Zingara

Zingara swimwear is colorful, elegant and their pieces offer more support than other brands around town in comparison. The Aventura Mall location is clean and organized, so you won't feel overwhelmed by overloaded bikini bottom racks and cluttered floor spaces. [Photo:Aventura Mall]

Aquamarine

Aquamarine is a fabulous luxury swimwear store, but what else would you expect to find at the Fontainebleau? It's the only store in the U.S. to carry Ermanno Scervino, and it's one of the only boutiques in Miami where you'll find swimwear by Eres, Delfina and Philipp Plein, as well as accessories by Jamuin Puech. You'll also find high-end sunglasses and, surprisingly enough, pool toys. [Photo: Fontainebleau]

Eberjey

Copy Link
Eberjey has simple, feminine bikinis, one-pieces and coverups in ethereal hues, which somehow all seem to match together. If you can't make it out to Sunset Harbour though, you can also find Eberjey at Saks, Elle Spa, Studio LX and at their other brick and mortar in South Miami. [Photo: Yelp]

The Shop at The Standard Spa

Copy Link
Eres bikinis? Check. Haute Hippie coverups? Check. Sundek board shorts? Double check. The Shop at The Standard Spa is continuously hailed as one of the best hotel shops in Miami, but we're taking it up a notch and proclaiming it one of the best swimwear stores. You can find all your beach needs here, as well as drugstore basics, artsy novelties and exclusive collaborations with brands like Quiksilver and José Parlá. [Photo: The Standard Spa]

Orchid Boutique - Swimwear

Copy Link
Orchid Boutique was once located on 8th and Washington in South Beach, however they closed up shop to relocate. The good news? You can still shop their extensive collection of one pieces and bikinis at their small showroom, many which are reasonably priced under $100. [Photo: Orchid Boutique]

Ondademar

OndadeMar only carries its eponymous line for women, men, babies and kids and has two locations on South Beach, the second on 8th street. At both locations you'll find classic triangle bikinis, elegant one-pieces and festive swim trunks for men, all brightly colored and patterned. [Photo: OndadeMar]

Beach Bunny Swimwear

Beach Bunny's swimsuits are colorful, sparkly, frilly, cute and know how to push the girls up. If that's your thing, there's a whole store full of these cute bikinis on Collins Avenue. [Photo: Beach Bunny Swimwear]

Indie Soul

Indie Soul's main focus is to produce swimwear with artisans overseas, from Colombia to India. Many of their pieces have been featured in Sports Illustrated and you can find them all, from suit to cover-up, at their Mary Brickell Village flagship. [Photo: Indie Soul]

Curves N' Waves

Founded in 1993, Curves N' Waves is like the grandfather of Miami swimwear stores. They carry brands like Agua Bendita, Maaji, Letarte and those cheeky heart-shaped bottoms from Bettinis. [Photo: Google]

Nic del Mar

Copy Link
If Sports Illustrated could outfit its models through only one store, we'd recommend Nic del Mar. The Coral Gables boutique packs in swimwear, coverups, casual wear and accessories for women and girls, and carries well-to-do brands like Acacia, Zimmerman, Wildfox and Mara Hoffman. Indeed, it's pricey, but if you're looking for the hottest swimwear trend and quality suit that will last, come here. [Photo: Nic del Mar]

Neptunes Kids Swimwear

Don't let the name fool you. Neptunes Kids specializes in both women's and kid's swim, and they pride themselves on their mommy-and-me looks, from matching Maaji full pieces to Agatha Ruiz dela Prada bikinis. Other brands they carry include Ondademar, Melissa Odabash, Luli Fama and Agua Bendita. [Photo: Neptunes Swimwear]

Maui Nix Surf Shop - Coco Walk

Copy Link
If your not into the frills of fancy swimwear, head straight towards Maui Nix. You'll find surfer staples like Roxy, Billabong, O'Neill and Ripcurl. It's a prime place to grab your bikini and board from. The only problem now is finding waves in South Florida. [Photo: Yelp]

Femme Jolie

Copy Link
Great prices, made in Miami; that's the main thing you need to know about Femme Jolie. Here you can mix and match ruffled bandeaus with scrunched bottoms, and neon triangle tops with leopard Brazilian cuts. A set will run you at about $60. Also, they specialize in cat suits. We're not kidding. [Photo: Femme Jolie]

Nikki's Beachhouse Boutique

Nikki's Beachhouse is a treasure trove of itsy bikinis and their counterpart coverups. Cheeky heart bottoms, crochet cutout pieces; you name it, and this shop has got it. [Photo:

Mermaids Swimwear Boutique

Copy Link
Mermaids has been outfitting South Miami's pool going crowd for the past 14 years and, although small, it has built up an extensive list of designers like Kai Lani, L*Space and ACACIA. They sell coverups, kids swimwear and beach accessories like fedoras and bags and most things will run well over $100. [Photo: Facebook]

Boheme Boutique Key Biscayne

Copy Link
Bohemian luxury is the name of the game at Boheme, and with two locations (the other one is in Key Biscayne) there's enough of that to go around. Come here for colorful Dolores Cortes pieces, stringy Mikoh bikinis and loose and airy coverups. Suits won't run you over $300. [Photo: Boheme Boutique]
