Chicago, we've finally done it. And by 'it,' we mean cracked into 80 degree weather.
In the spirit of that, we're shining the proverbial spotlight on a new discovery, a Chicago-based swimwear line. Brazilian Beaute Swimwear takes Brazil's influence and makes it appropriate for the Chicago woman. These aren't suits that aren't just built for lounging; they're made with Xtra Life Lycra fiber and Solar Max, which ups its resistance to chlorine and ability to hold its shape. If you're a girl who plans on jumping headfirst into the pool or Lake Michigan, these may the suits for you. They let you be active without sacrificing style.
