Go ahead, girl. Dive in.

We Are Handsome

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Swimwear is definitely having a moment right now. Mesh one-pieces with high hip slits, full-neck bikini tops, neoprene rash guards used for style, not sport– we're not just limited to tie string bottoms and mom-esque one-pieces anymore. We've got a whole slate of new styles and brands to try, and you'd be hard pressed to find a neighborhood in Miami where you can't find what you're looking for.

We've mapped out 21 of Miami's best swimwear stores from A to Z, whether you're ready to dive into luxury bikinis or you're perfectly content breaking the thermostat, not the bank. You'll notice we left out the obvious go-tos, like H&M, Target, and Victoria's Secret, and filled the list up with specialty stores and boutiques dedicated to the pursuit of seaside style.

Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments section and we'll consider adding.
