Above jeans, beyond bras, there is no single thing women hate to shop for more than a bathing suit. Which is why many of them bless Malia Mills every time they go near a pool or a beach. Mills understands that while their bodies come in a whole bunch of weird permutations, women would still like to have some measure of choice in their swimwear. Her various pieces are meant for mixing and matching—a plum halter with a brown polka-dot bikini bottom, or a floral bra with a stripey boy brief—which makes finding the right size(s) for your shape a lot easier. The tiny boutiques can get pretty cramped, but once you’re installed in a dressing room and the saleswomen start coaxing you into cuts and colors you might not have considered, you may even enjoy the process.
