The Five Best Swimwear Boutiques in Miami
At this time of year, even the thought of donning an innocent, inconspicuous tank top seems too overbearing for South Florida's muggy humidity. And when that happens, the women of Miami resort to anatomical liberation, a physical freedom of expression done in the most sexy of ways: the swimsuit.
Of course, finding a swimsuit is like finding a best friend or a soul mate - it ain't easy. There can be major personality pitfalls like a saggy butt or lopsided cutouts. Sometimes finding a suit can be a bigger pain in the ass than coming face-to-face with the perfect pair of jeans. And not every swimwear boutique gets your body or even cares to, for that matter. But there are few in the Magic City that do; places where expert salespeople, by just one glance, already know the ideal swimsuit you've been waiting for these long, hard months in a world full of no's.
So as this weekend's Swim Week approaches, we've hand picked the best swimwear boutiques that will leave you with a brand new "best friend" for the season - and no saggy butt. You can thank us later.

5. Aquamarine at the Fontainebleau
The Fontainebleau is so much more than just nightly shit-shows outside of LIV and fancy-shmancy restaurants. In fact, there's an equally flashy swimwear boutique lurking right beneath all the head-throbbing untz, untz.
With names as momentous as Etro, La Perla, and Delfina swaying to and fro within its compressed, albeit glitzy, confines, is it any wonder why the Fontainebleau's best kept secret, Aquamarine, snagged a spot on our top five? Aside from the bejeweled triangle tops and crochet monokinis dueling for the affection of world-class jet setting babes, the boutique also caters to the fellas with cargo shorts, polos, and briefs (bordering on banana-hammock territory, but still screaming sexy-foreign-man-come-hither nonetheless). There are even suits for the little tikes with Delfina diminutives, twinning their adult (pieces).
And though the Fontainebleau usually caters only to big spenders, Aquamarine satisfies the price-palettes of every wallet: starting as low as $18 Havaianas flip flops, and as pocket-singeing as a pair of $3,000 Chrome Heart Sunglasses.
