Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Although technically summer doesn't begin until next month (June 21!), Memorial Day weekend is known as the unofficial kick off to the warm-weather season. Given that your summer itinerary will likely include lots of beach dwelling, pool parties, sunbathing and far-flung getaways, a new swimsuit is pretty much an essential, especially here in LA.

In preparation, we rounded up 20 suit-happy shops to score sexy bikinis to live in all summer. From Ondademar's beach shack-inspired boutique filled with suits for all ages to exotic, cheeky pieces at San Lorenzo Bikinis to Seafolly's super sexy stunners and all the glam accessories to go with them. And for boho babes, Planet Blue's new swimwear under their in-house line, Blue Life, has all the Cali-cool suits you've been dreaming about. Now all you need is some SPF.
