Summer is here and that means one thing: it’s time to suit up and enjoy the sunshine! Being Canadian, we are all about summer adventures and exploring our beautiful country. From lounging at the lake to floating in the pool, we are set on soaking up the hot weather.
We asked our #swimsuitmodel team and Swimco Fit Experts to share the sunny spots they will be hitting up this summer. Read on to learn their favourites!

I LOVE going to the lake- especially Kalamalka. Whether it’s bringing a picnic blanket and playing fetch with my dog, to rope swinging, cliff diving, or boating, the lake is the place to be. One of my favourite things about living in Kelowna is that there are so many beautiful places to explore!
This summer I will be wearing my favourite suit from the photoshoot- the Everyday Sunday Neon Blossom Lace Up Crop Bikini. The colours are so pretty and bright and it makes my skin look super tan. I also love the lace up detailing on the front!

After a long Alberta winter, the place to be is in my hometown of Sylvan Lake. Our summer culture has all of the essentials: local ice cream, a beautiful lighthouse, and an endless supply of fun activities! One of my favourite things to do is hike. I love making the trip out to the Rocky Mountains and taking the day to explore a new trail, especially somewhere as beautiful as Morraine Lake.
High neck swimsuits are my go-to, such as the Azura Malibu High Neck Lace Up Bikini. They are sporty, supportive, and super cute! They are the perfect combination of fabulous and functional. When I’m not in the water, I wear mine as a crop top with my favourite jean shorts or with a high-waisted pencil skirt.

After all of the pancake breakfasts and rodeos at Stampede, Brandy likes to head to the mountains to recharge. One of her favourite spots is the Fairmont Banff Springs! The beautiful pools have an incredible view of the mountains and they are the perfect opportunity to model some new swimsuits.
This summer, Brandy has been wearing her go-to one piece: the Bleu Rod Beattie Knotty Lace Down Over The Shoulder One Piece. This supportive and sexy suit goes from day to night, from pool to party.

My absolute favourite summer spot is my husband’s family cabin at Kenosee Lake. It’s right on the lake and we try to spend as much time there as possible. During the day we love to go wakeboarding, surfing, golfing, fishing, and out on the Sea- Doo, and at night we sing and play guitar by the campfire. We also eat TONS of hot dogs and s’mores!
When I’m shopping for swimsuits, I always look for something mom-friendly and trendy. This summer, one of the suits I’ll be rocking is the Everyday Sunday Fancy Signature Wrap Front One Piece.

I love to travel, but there is something so special about spending time in your own province. Regina Beach is my go-to beach spot when I need some rest and relaxation! When I’m looking for some adventure, like biking or running, I always hit up Wascana Lake. It has a perfect trail around the lake that gives an amazing view while I’m doing my workout.
Finding the perfect swimsuit is all about fit and style. I wore the Moontide Jacquard Booster Triangle Bikini at the Swimco photoshoot in Kelowna and it fit like a dream! This will definitely be my go-to suit this summer.

Summer in Manitoba is awesome! We have so many things to do, both in the city and lakeside. One of my favourite places to visit is Wasgaming in Riding National Park- I love that I can be in nature and still have the comforts of the city, like coffee and spa treatments! When I’m spending the weekend in the city I always make sure to hit up the various festivals that are happening. We have everything from Jazz Fest, to Country Fest, to Folklarama, which is a festival that celebrates diversity and multiculturalism. I try to go to as many as possible because it’s a combination of my favourite things: people, dance, and FOOD!
When I shop for swimwear I am always want something cute, yet versatile just like the Body Glove Vogue Stripe Rush Rush One Piece. This summer I am really into one pieces because I can swim and lounge during the day and then throw on a skirt, shorts, or jeans for night time. A swimsuit and body suit in one!

When I think of summer, I think of Muskoka! There is nothing like taking a dip in the cold, refreshing lake water. Lake life is all about hanging out with family and friends on the dock, reading a good book, and working on your tan in a cute swimsuit. I plan on spending lots of time lakeside this summer!
My favourite swimsuit for this summer is the Trina Turk Getaway Off The Shoulder One Piece. It doesn’t give me tan lines on my shoulders, it’s super flattering and comfortable, and when I throw on a skirt or pair of jeans shorts on top of it, it looks like a beautiful and trendy outfit I can wear around town! I also slightly obsessed with the Volcom Simply Seamless Cut Out One Piece! It’s so cute and sporty so I can look good and be active in the water!
