10 Swim Suits To Avoid In 2012

Mercedes Benz Miami Swim Week wrapped up on July 18th.  Looking back at the shows, I noticed there were a handful of swim suits to avoid (at all costs). Below you’ll find the top ten bathing suits to pass on for Summer 2012.

Haha – it’d be perfect for a beach wedding. I’m not sure I’d want to know a girl who would think wearing a suit to her wedding would be a good idea though.

H&M’s swimwear 2010 ad campaign features supermodels Daria Werbowy, Julia Stegner, Erin Wasson, Sasha Pivovarova and Lara Stone (they all look fabulous here). The new swimwear collection will be launching this month, shot by photographer Patrick Demarchelier at St. Barts in the Caribbean. The swimwear collection mixes safari with ethnic detailing and prints. I totally dig the mismatch trend thats carrying over from last season.

In video’s that launched with the ad campaign, all five models talked about their best beach memories (smart marketing move by H&M). Check out the videos on
