Swimsuit powerhouse Malia Mills opened her first cozy store in Brooklyn, which marks her tenth shop (there are three in Manhattan, two in the Hamptons and four in California), featuring a wide selection of bathing gear from simple black one-pieces to daring teeny bikinis. The brick walls display photos of Mills’s past customers, friends and employees modeling her creations, and the racks showcase her eponymous designs. Look for fashionable one-pieces such as bright single-shoulder styles ($335) or floral suits with removable straps ($375). Busty gals who struggle to find truly supportive tops will be thrilled to discover vibrant D cups lined with sturdy underwire ($205). In addition to the water wares, you can take home Mills’s ready-to-wear line of apparel and accessories, including sheer, convertible dresses ($325), brightly hued hammock bags ($225) and snap belts ($125), which she recommends wearing over your bathing-suit bottom for an edgy twist. If nothing fits your body right, Mills will custom-make you a style, which guarantees no boob spillage on the beach ($50 for fitting plus the cost of the suit).
