This pink cat meme one-piece from Ping Hatta Studio (US) is riddled with iconic cat memes, which definitely makes for a cute statement.

It’s also available in other variants, namely a yellow colorway and bikini options. Sizes XS-3XL.
KiraKiraCalico (US) has this adorable Pearl the Purrmaid high-waisted bikini featuring a cute cat mermaid and sparkly seashells galore.

You can also find a one-piece version of this in the same design, or check out the shop’s other kawaii swimwear designs here. Sizes XS-3XL.
These 1950s retro-style yellow and white polka dot swim top and bottoms from Unique Vintage (US) come with bows and ruffles that only add to the cuteness and overall bright pop of color. Other cute prints of this high-waisted bikini are available, including a navy gingham and rainbow stripes. Sizes XS-3X.
Softcore (US) is a plus-size focused alternative lifestyle brand offering sizes up to 6XL. The Eyes on Me swim trunks are definitely an eye-catcher, featuring colorful hearts, sparkles, and eyes drawn in different manga-inspired styles!
