    It hugs the body without digging into the skin and helps smooth out any bulges and folds, so you can look good from all angles even after a big meal.

    Plus, the sweetheart neckline on the bralette-like top gives the bikini an effortlessly feminine look that would flatter your shoulders and draw attention to your collarbone.

    Though it sticks to a mostly no-frills design, the top piece has a pointed round neck cut that allows for a little more cleavage without going for a harsh V-cut on the neckline, so you get a more delicate silhouette that’s fit for a variety of body types.

    The high-waist bottoms sport a similar slightly V-shaped cut on the waist, with two pieces of fabric layered on top of each other to create the shape. The result is a pair of bottoms that emphasizes your waist and gives your torso a more hourglass shape.

    Plus, we’re head over heels for the soft yellow color—a perfect summertime pastel.

    9. Cima Trip Top (P1,100) and Anilo Bottoms (P1,650) from Alba

    Though sold separately, Alba’s Cima Tri Top and Anilo bottoms make a great two-piece set when paired and the local brand has tons of photos highlighting how well the two go together.

    The bottoms provide ample coverage from crotch to waist with just a touch of skin peeking through thanks to the string detail on the side—the drawstring even lets you adjust the bottoms so you can get a comfortable fit every time.

    The top, on the other hand, goes for a more classic triangle shape, but with a little more support and coverage than you would get from a string-bikini top.

    Each piece is available in a variety of hues—you can pair two of the same shade together or mix and match for a more colorful look.

    Shop here.

    10. Florence Bikini (P2,495) from Ellá the Label
