When it comes to fashion, celebrities tend to trend a couple years ahead of us mere mortals — so it's smart to look to their swimwear for a bit of packing inspiration. Whether you're jetting off to one of the world's best beaches, your own private island, or an off-the-grid Caribbean locale, stash a few pieces from these star-fave bikini brands in your luggage.
1. Tori Praver
Praver grew up as a surfer chic in the paradise of Maui, where she launched this now well-known brand. Megan Fox, Jessica Alba, and Marisa Miller are big fans. The line is known for its signature ruching technique.
2. Acacia Swimwear
Acacia is so on-trend right now. The brand is all about embracing the love of travel, and the tiniest Brazilian-fit bottoms possible. The pieces are known for intricate designs and adorable custom prints, with cuts that are feminine but also sporty-sexy-surfer-chic. Fans of Acacia include party girls Rihanna, Hailey Baldwin, and Vanessa Hudgens.
3. L*Space by Monica Wise
Wise gets her design inspiration from her travels in France, Mexico, Bali, and the California coast. These are high-end surfer girl suits; with a little more booty coverage, they're great for water sports. The super-flattering brand made strapless, tie-dye, fringe tops the must-have bikini a couple years ago. Celeb fans include Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Sofia Vergara, and Cameron Diaz.
4. Vitamin A
Originator of the LBB — little black bikini! — this company's pieces are meticulously made with seams that sit perfectly flat. Here you'll find only figure-flattering fits that hug all the right places. Celebs who have been spotted in the brand include Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, and Rihanna.
5. Luli Fama
This Cuban-born brand expanded in Miami and has all the A-listers hooked. It’s bright, eclectic, and flirty — with heart-shaped and barely there bottoms. Stars like Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé, Kate Hudson, and Shakira have been seen in Luli Fama, as have major supermodels on the cover of Sports Illustrated. LeAnn Rimes and Brandi Glanville don’t just have the same taste in men — but in Luli Fama bikinis, too. (They've both been photographed rocking them!)
6. Mara Hoffman
This New York brand is inspired by nature and mythology. Hoffman is known for her unique cuts, tribal prints, and bright colors. Vanessa Hudgens, Kourtney Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and Nicole Scherzinger are huge fans.
7. Agua Bendita
The brightest, wildest suit designer on this list is definitely Agua Bendita. These pieces have loads of tiny details, mixed prints, animal print galore... and even sequins. The Colombian brand is loved by celebs like Candice Swanepoel, Bar Refaeli, and Ashley Tisdale. Modeling for Agua Bendita was one of Kendall Jenner’s first big gigs.
