5 homegrown Thai swimsuit brands

Because in Thailand, it's always bikini season...

1. Khongboon Swimwear

These funky, skimpy bikinis have been taking over my newsfeed, with good reason. Each piece is reversible, which means double the #ootd potential - maybe that's why bloggers love 'em. Pluse those Brazilian cut bottoms will undoubtedly turn some heads (especially if your butt is as white and untouched by the sun as mine!). Traveler/beach-lover Supaporn Khongboon was inspired to design the swimwear line after she couldn't find a suit that fit her right. From the great reviews, I'd say she is pretty successful! Check out their website

2. Namanya Beachwear

I came across this brand at the TGIF Market a while ago and I immediately snapped up their Leo bandeau. So cute. (Although my boyfriend doesn't like it for some reason. Oh well.) Get your hands on Namanya at Terminal 21 or via IG.

Oh Leo, love it when you look at me like that.

3. Virgin Daisies

Just the sound of their hipster chic name should tell you that this isn't your average "surf's up" beach babe bikini brand. Vintage inspired high waist suits made of velvet set them apart when they launched a few years ago. Now, with some active wear in addition to fashion forward swimsuits, a Virgin Daisies suit is a must for the Bangkok fashion set.

Try on some Virgin Daisies at their showroom in Sukhumvit 49 or at The Emporium or The Wonder Room concept store in Siam Center.

Sometimes you just need to try a bikini IRL!

4. Sunday Escape

This Thai-born brand has been on my IG feed for a while just for a dose of that Sunday feeling every day of the week. Affordable bikinis in cute styles. IG is their main channel, but they will ask you to order via Line. You know, that app where your parents like to overuse stickers and send you random YouTube clips.

"Let's Get Tan" is their slogan, which is way better than that silly Snail White slogan "Let's Get As White As Humanly Possible." As a somewhat tan person myself, I applaud them for encouraging a nice tan. (But don't forget that sunscreen now!) They also have the celeb connection - the founders are models/actresses @yoghurt_rb and @si_phitsinee. So they better have the trendiest suits around. Online only so order via Line as usual.
