Lane Bryant Strapless Off-The-Shoulder Flounce Bikini Top With Built-In Bandeau Bra ($60.50)

How cute is this off-the-shoulder bikini from Lane Bryant?! We lvoe the flirty, flouncy style of the bandeau bra top. The gingham black pattern makes this bikini super fun and a bit more interesting than a plain, neutral suit. The bikini top is convertible with removable straps for a strapless look. However, if you prefer the security of straps on your bikini tops (we don't blame you) then you can leave the straps on. The coverage of this bathing suit is medium and lightly lined.
