I’m Obsessing Over This Swimwear Line

 

So, it’s officially Summer! (almost — we have a week’s but who’s counting!)

With the warmer months come the desire for most to hit a beach, or at least a pool for some relaxation and fun in the sun. And where there’s a pool, there should be a BOMB azz swimsuit!

Over the last few years, I’ve had a hard time finding a swimwear line that I was excited about, however, I am totally feeling Andrea Iyamah swimwear 2016 collection.  The brand was started by Nigerian fashion designer Dumebi Iyamah, and the swimsuits are very vibrant and inspired by African cultures.

I recently hit up Santa Monica beach in the Mezhu bikini and the color could not have been more perfect against my skin tone. I also loved the long sleeves (as it was a 70 degree day) and most of their suits have a high waist, which is a huge plus for women who have a few problem areas around the waist line.

The only con is the suits are a little pricey (over $100) but you definitely get what you pay for. The quality is impeccable.
