Hit the beach this summer looking like a goddess with African print swimwear. Body confidence means loving your body no matter how it looks. Yet even the most confident of us tend to balk at wearing swimwear (those extra pounds on the waist). Picking threads that flatter your body is a great way to boost your body confidence. And this goes even when you want to lounge at the beach.
We found some African print swimwear that are just gorgeous. With any of these, you can rule the beach like the queen that you are!
The Ashanti swimwear has been described by Lauren Williams of ESSENCE Magazine as “a super cute suit that’s functional, comfortable and will make heads turn…” Founded by 23 year old Yasmeen, and her older brother, this Ghanaian brand is based in London and set out to create unique swimwear that teaches people about African culture.

Also Ghanian based, she makes use of African print (mostly ankara) to make onepiece and bikini swimsuits that are sexy and stylish. They also look really comfortable.

We love the bold prints, the eccentric and cohesive designs and how stylishly sexy they are. Just like their motto says, with these African Print Swimwear, you are sure to unleash your inner fynebabe.
