As Seen in Cosmopolitan Magazine: L Space Bikini

May 4th, 2009 | By | 3,297 Comments


Not only does the Cosmo staff know how to get a tasty beverage named after their mag, they also seem to be at the top when it comes to spotting figure and fashion-friendly swimwear. This month’s issue features a spread on bikinis for “curvy butts” that highlights the L Space Geo Bondi Bikini. According to Cosmo, this sultry bikini is a slam dunk for your fashionable ba-dunk-a-dunk. Add that to glam D-shaped gold rings and a jewel-encrusted print, and you’ve got a bikini that’s sure to be a better friend to girls’ curves than the blue jean. The best feature of this bikini is that it offers a wide seat coverage without covering the lower part of the seat (think cheeky boy short style back, with a regular front). What does this mean? A sexier, more flattering cut than a full-coverage bottom. Which means no slouchy, wet diaper look that comes with a full bottom. L Space bikinis are made to mix-and-match, so pair it with the Geo Bondi Twist Bandeau for a flirty look, or with a solid top, like the L Space Twister Top, for an updated and fun twist. For more of this D-ring style check out L Space Swim on Swell. Get it now, or you might get left behind!
