Summer Is Heating Up, Thanks to These Bravolebs' Itty Bitty Bikinis

Melissa Gorga loves to put her sultry swim style "on display." The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has long flaunted her figure in bikinis of every cut and color and rocked a multitude of sexy one-piece swimsuits. Over the years, the mom of three’s beach wear collection has caught our attention for its fearlessness with revealing silhouettes, bold color options, and the impressive selection of top designer brands. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

If you’re feeling up to a bit of summer style inspiration, take a trip down memory lane as we revisit some of the "On Display" singer’s greatest (bikini) hits. We’ll jet to some truly envy-inducing destinations such as a yacht in the Bahamas, the sandy beaches of Aruba, and the glistening waters of Turks and Caicos. Some of our stops hit closer to home as Melissa also poses in sizzling swimwear inside her incredible New Jersey mansion and on the water adjacent back deck of her fabulous Jersey Shore vacation home.

Melissa Gorga’s Black Bikini in Montauk

While on vacation in Montauk this summer, Melissa dipped her toes in the ocean while sporting a sexy, strapless black bikini top and strappy black bottom.

On July 4, she took to Instagram to share a look at the two-piece with eye-catching string details. She paired the sultry style with a white button-down shirt, a black baseball cap, and dark sunglasses. 

“Much needed little break by the ocean,” she captioned the pic. Margaret Josephs jumped into the comments to write what we were all thinking: “Ok that BODY.” 

Melissa Gorga’s Floral String Bikini From Her 2023 Bahamas Trip

Everything’s coming up roses in Melissa’s February 2023 Instagram share from a trip to the Bahamas. The RHONJ cast member vowed to “kill them with kindness” as she posed on the back of a moving boat while wearing a tiny floral-printed string bikini with a light blue background.

Friend and castmate Margaret Josephs was inspired by Melissa’s caption when she quipped in the comments, “Or that killer body.”

Melissa Gorga’s Jamaican Vacation Bikinis

While the Gorga family enjoyed a relaxing trip to Jamaica in 2018, Melissa (of course) was suited up in her finest beach fashions. The mom rocked a number of memorable bikinis on that trip, but our favorite had to be this cross-cross top bikini with a string-tie bottom, which Melissa donned versions of not once but twice (in red and black) during her getaway.

And yes, if you’re wondering, the resort-ready swimwear was straight from the racks at Envy boutique. 

 Melissa Gorga’s Bikini with a Tropical Print from Envy

Partners that slay together, stay together! In a July 2019 photo posted to Envy’s Instagram page, Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, were all smiles as they strolled hand in hand while wearing matching pool gear.

For her part, Melissa looked fabulous in a tropical printed two-piece (from Envy, now discontinued) with a structured wire top, while her hubby flaunted matching trunks.

Melissa Gorga’s Hot Pink Versace Bikini As Seen on RHUGT

No one was more impressed by Melissa’s sizzling hot-pink bandeau-top Versace bikini than her husband. “16 years later and you still have my heart pumping,” Joe commented on his wife’s April 2021 Instagram photo, which was taken while she was on vacation with some fellow Real Housewives while filming Season 1 of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip in Turks and Caicos. Speaking of her fellow Housewives, one deserves credit for the sassy snap.

““Where is my photo credit ma’am?” cast mate Cynthia Bailey quipped in the comments.

Melissa’s assessment of the pic was cheeky as well: “Today was boatloads of fun,” she captioned her post. 

 Melissa Gorga’s Orange Bikini From Her New Year's Eve Aruba Trip

One way to ring in the New Year: in a showstopping orange swimsuit with a lace-up top and tie-string bottoms. Such was Melissa’s agenda as she closed out 2021 with a trip to Aruba. Besides the plunging bikini, white frame sunglasses and a gauzy white cover-up completed the Real Housewife’s stunning beach look. 

The December 31, 2021, pic was simply captioned: “Talk to me 2022.”

Melissa Gorga’s Black Polka-Dot One-Piece in St. Maarten

As the year 2018 came to a close, the Envy boutique owner welcomed the New Year in classic Melissa fashion: by posing in a cheeky swimsuit. Clad in a black polka dotted one-piece with a high-cut silhouette, Melissa splashed on the shores of St. Maarten while posing for a scorching Instagram photo. 

“About to say goodbye to you 2018,” she captioned the eye-catching pic. “Can’t wait for what 2019 brings.”

Melissa Gorga’s Jersey Short Neon Green Swimsuit

In a scroll-stopping Instagram snap from July 2019, the fashionista proved that she’s “always looking on the bright side,” as she posed in a high-cut scoop-neck one-piece swimsuit in an unmissable shade of lime green.

And if that white railing overlooking the ocean seems familiar, it’s because it’s part of the heavenly back porch of the Gorga family’s $1 million Jersey Shore house where many iconic RHONJ parties have been thrown. 

Melissa Gorga’s Leopard-Print One-Piece From a Mexico Vacation

“Welcome to the jungle,” the brunette beauty captioned a December 2019 shot of herself in a plunging leopard-print swimsuit, which revealed just a bit of side boob. Speaking of plunging, Melissa looked ready to dive in to the turquoise waters of the Mexican cenote in the background of the photo. The adventurous moment was part of a zip-lining excursion with her husband and three kids — Antonia, Gino, and Joey — in Mexico’s Riviera Maya. 

Melissa Gorga’s Moschino One-Piece at the Jersey Shore

Life’s a beach in Melissa’s June 2020 Instagram Story. While spending some quality time at her dreamy shore house, the mom posed by a miniature lighthouse with a delicious-looking drink in hand. (And why not? The summer getaway home is equipped with a fabulous outdoor bar setup.) Her sporty red-white-and-blue Moschino suit was expertly paired with a red baseball cap. “Sunday,” she captioned the snap. Sounds like a perfect Sunday, indeed. 

Melissa Gorga’s Black Monokini at the Jersey Shore

Melissa Gorga Monokini

Bravolebs love a sexy monokini, and Melissa is no exception. During a July 2020 trip to the shore, Joe snapped a mid-action photo of his wife in a smoldering monokini with a daringly low neckline, side cutouts, and a center ring detail. To top it all off, Melissa donned a sporty Gucci logo visor and styled her hair in a loose ponytail braid. 

Melissa Gorga’s High-Cut Peach One-Piece

When she’s not posing beachside, Melissa can be found at home taking a jaw-dropping mirror selfie in her latest swim gear. The suit in question, featured in a March 2021 post, had a light pink hue and a cheeky, high-cut bottom with an even more revealing top half.

Also on display: Melissa’s bronzed body and a long, wavy hairstyle featuring the Housewife-adored center braid.

Melissa Gorga’s Burnt Orange One-Piece From RHUGT 

Orange you glad Melissa had another orange swimsuit in store? Her one-piece version, which she wore on the aforementioned Turks and Caicos trip to film RHUGT, featured a trendy burnt orange shade and lots of daring cutouts. The ultra-high cut Everything but Water bathing suit had a plunging neckline, three cutouts on the front, dainty ties on either side, and ruched detailing. A matching orange headband and dark, tortoise-shell sunglass completed her boat day look. 

Melissa Gorga’s Black Swimsuit From Her 2022 Aruba Trip

While exploring Aruba with her family in December 2022, Melissa had a “salt water in the curls [kind of] day” while wearing a black one-piece from L*Space with a very deep V neckline. She added a matching black sarong to her thin-strap suit and completed the ensemble with oversize sunglasses and sandy toes.
