Top 7 Black-Owned Swimwear/ Bikini Brands

Because it is summer time I’d like to help by looking at swimwear. Of course they have to be black owned.

Not all swimsuits are the same, just as not all bodies are alike. Buying a swimsuit is like buying a pair of jeans. There are so many brands and styles on the market, and no two fit alike. These top 7 swimsuit and bikini companies are black-owned, and they have designs to fit any woman from a small, athletic body to a full-figure women with lots of curves.
