Waiting to watch Baywatch with bae? In the meantime, we've got something for you (hint: iconic red swimsuits)
Go on, bask in the sun in these
So… remember when Pamela Anderson rocked that red-hot bathing suit and made it an iconic identifier of the popular 90’s TV series, Baywatch? Yes, we’re bringing sexyback with a 2017 reboot that is bigger and hotter – think ‘The Rock’ Dwayne Johnson and washboard abs Zac Efron.
Not forgetting the iconic red swimsuit on beach babes Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach.To celebrate the opening of Baywatch in Singapore this coming Thursday, the 1st of June, we’ve put together a shopping list of red one-pieces that you can wear to run along the beach with bae, re-creating your own Baywatch experience.
U Seamless Swim one-piece
Sporty and comfortable, the U seamless one-piece from Uniqlo is crafted from a special sewing technique that gives it the seamless design, making it a super gentle option against the skin. Plus, it helps to cut UV, so you don’t have to worry too much about over-baking yourself in the sun and damaging your skin.
If you’re into a more sexy and sensual version, then this swimsuit from the Mikoh sisters is definitely the one for you. Crafted from stretch-fabric, this alluring one-piece is fully lined for coverage, with elegant straps that crisscrosses at the back.
Inspired by the 70’s, this bonded swimsuit cuts low on the leg which lengthens the silhouette, making it ultra sensual with the figure-sculpting bonded fabric and low back. What we really love is the zipper, which really resembles the gold zipper on the reworked ’17 Baywatch swimsuit, except for the colour. Plus, this can double up as a bodysuit so… score!

Ultra strappy, ultra thigh-high, this strikingly red swimsuit from ASOS has a cutout plunge that screams sexiness all over. Better fasten that halter neck before you go for a dip so that nipslip doesn’t happen.
Sensuous and multi-purpose, this swimsuit from Jonathan Simkhai can also be layered with a skirt for the evening. It comes with a plunging lace-up front and crisscross back that is enhanced with UV protection and hip-framing mesh trims. We say put these on and order yourself a Pina Colada.
