Ah, the sweltering T.O. summer. What better time to engage in the torturous ritual that is bathing suit shopping? But don't be afraid, girls -- we're here to help with our selection of sassy suits!
Get in on the hippie-chic fever currently gripping the city with a one-piece bathing beauty complete with low-slung fringed belt (1, Swimsuit Essentials, 116 Yorkville, 416-921-7946, $205). What? You think avant-garde bohemianism comes cheap?
Discipline your little Scouts in this pervy, super-cute Scout Leader bikini, complete with merit badges on the ta-tas (2, Sandpipers, 87 Yorkville, 416-921-2376, $145). Bust out your inner pink lioness (3, Swimsuit Essentials, $180) or go 3-D look-at-me floral (4, Sandpipers, $145).
Boy-cut legs take the pubes patrol out of summer skivvies (5, Swimsuit Essentials, $160), and a retro 70s print also means you can wear a bikini and not shave, in honour of that fine decade (6, Sandpipers, $80).
If you have fish on your bikini, maybe they will think you are their friend and will rub up against you (7, Sandpipers, $130). Go true blue (8, Bikini Village, Eaton Center, 416-599-9911, $54.95) or itsy-bitsy teeny weeny yellow... um... yellow bikini (9, Bikini Village, $39.95).
Happy swimming and/or lying around showing off your bathing suit. We know some of the public pools are still closed, but if you wear it, they will come.
