Another Miami Swim Week has come and sadly gone. In its wake, we’re left with sizzling memories of pool parties (Hyde Beach hosted no less than three!), runway shows, brunches, and of course plenty of bikinis. But not all swimwear is created equal, which is why we’ve narrowed down the five best looks from the week.

For Love and Lemons
This dreamy apparel and lingerie line debuted its first ever swimwear collection, featuring plenty of lace and covetable cutouts.

Hera Swim
Hera took over The Raleigh Miami Beach’s iconic pool with bold hues, big sunglasses, and a range of the perfect beach staples from one to two pieces, like the “Astra” bikini here.

Mint Swim USA
Cutouts were all over the runway, like these stunners by Mint Swim, the brainchild of celeb stylist and “Basketball Wives” star Draya Michele.

Hosting an unconventional swimwear show, timepiece designer Kyboe! partnered with Wilhelmina Models to debut their collection of watches.

Lee + Lani
The most buzzed about show of the week was by LA’s Lee + Lani, who aimed to “desexualize” the body. The show finale came when a model walked out in a suit that went over only one breast, one hand over the other. At the end, her hand dropped, boldly attempting to #freethenipple. Oh, and the rest of the collection was also fantastic!
