Girlfriend Collective is back at it again: Known for the infamous black leggings that received 10,000 orders after the free leggings promotion and a month-long waitlist, Girlfriend Collective continues to create athleisure and fitness pieces we actually want and in a sustainable way. We can’t get enough of the sports bras, socks, shorts, sweatsuits—you name it. And as the weather begins to peak above 70 degrees and the sun finally makes contact with our skin (hello, vitamin D!) for longer than 10 minutes, the Girlfriend Collective swim launch couldn’t have come at a better time.

If you ask us, you can never have too many swimsuits, and we’re warning you now, it’s going to be hard to choose only one from the new collection. Just like all the other Girlfriend Collective offerings, these swimsuits are made from ECONYL, “a premium fabric designed with regenerated nylon made from things like old fishing nets and other post-industrial waste,” according to the Girlfriend Collective press release.

The collection features eight designs–from bikinis to a timeless one-shoulder one-piece—ranging from XXS to 6XL, and we love that you can mix and match as you please. The colorways instantly transport us to a tropical escape, but rocking them on your rooftop in the city is also encouraged. And for those who love to experiment, rock them poolside, on your next hike, or in the comfort of your own home.

Check out the collection ahead, and try your hardest not to put one of everything in your cart (but also do whatever makes you happy!). The hardest decision you’re going to have to make is deciding on a color.
