Active Styles

I need a cute bikini that will stay put when I swim laps or play beach volleyball. What should I look for?

Shop for a bikini with a supportive built-in bra. Steer clear of halters, which put too much pressure on your neck, and choose a style with crisscross or racerback straps that fit between your shoulder blades, says Anna Jerstrom, a designer and the founder of Calavera Swimwear. Check that the top's back strap and the bottom's waistband are made with sturdy elastic to ensure a snug fit and that they have silicone grippers there and around the leg openings to keep the suit in place when you move. Before you try on a suit, stretch the fabric to see if it snaps back into place; if it does, it will give you good support when you jump and dive.
