Swim Suits For All Luminary Blue Moon Bikini


Strategic rouching adds to this two-piece’s figure-flattery: The high-waisted bottoms offer coverage and control that won’t show any lumps or bumps, and the twist on the top isn’t just a pretty detail—it creates a lifted, separated silhouette (unlike most bandeaus).
