It can seem impossible to look chic in so little fabric, but we have the solution for a sexy, sleek summer swimsuit and it starts with black. Inky black swimwear equals instant, classic glamour. Whether you choose an itty-bitty LBB (Little Black Bikini) to show off a slender frame or a sporty modern style for a fit figure, we’ve gathered the best in black beach fare to suit every body type- and for a range of budgets from inexpensive find to investment buy.
