Guide To: Best Bikini Bum

It’s always swim season somewhere :) With summer just about officially here, we’re taking a look through our favorite bikini fits, most importantly, the bum. Whether you have a bootay or a little booty, you can find multiple options that will get you through the heat.

THE EVERYDAY

For those who like more coverage, the Everyday is a low rise bottom with our fullest coverage. Keeping everything in check, this style is what you want if you’re more of a mover and shaker on the beach than just a lounger.

THE CHEEKY

With its low rise and slightly scooped out back, the bum coverage of this style is in between that of the Skimpy and the Everyday. So if you’re a bit indecisive, the Cheeky is for you.

THE SKIMPY

True to its name, the Skimpy has a low rise and extreme scooped out back. We love the lifting effect this cut has by showing some extra cheek.

THE TEENSY

Designed for the sun chaser, this teeny bikini makes for a great flirty tan with its micro back coverage. Definitely our least amount of coverage style :)

THE HIGH HIP

A new addition to our bikini collection, we like to think this one is for the modern day beach bombshell. It’s high fit is flattering and a bit forgiving, while offering a skimpy fit.

Making The Collection: Amuse x Flynn Skye Collab

Collaborating has been the theme of the year for Amuse. It’s been so much fun getting to know and work with several other brand creatives.

I had been wanting to do a swim collab. with another like-minded California brand, and who better to, than Flynn Skye. Flynn Skye is a Venice-based, LA-made women’s brand who creates the dreamiest dresses, skirts and tops, however have never dipped their toe into the swim category.

Although I had been introduced to Amber, owner and designer of Flynn Skye, years ago when she had her store Blonde in Venice Beach, we were reacquainted again last year when Kelly, our digital manager, brought up the idea of collaborating with them.

When we reached out to Amber and her team, her casual response of “Sure, lets do it” set the tone for the entire collaboration process. I was drawn to Flynn Skye’s fresh approach to design, as well as her natural ability to promote and celebrate other women. Collaborating with Flynn Skye has been absolutely effortless, not to mention a lot of fun. Amber has such a casual approach to design – she knows exactly what she likes, and is the perfect reminder of to not overthink the process! Every meeting, email, text, and phone call has left a smile on my face. Truly. Together, Amber and I worked on creating a collection intended for the sexy, free-spirited, beach muse. We wanted the line to be equal parts Amuse and Flynn Skye, with a simple color palette, strong stripes, feminine florals, flirty tops, and cheeky bottoms. We love how the collection turned out, and are blown away by the positive response from our customers!

Below are some pics taken during the making of the collection, along with an interview with Amber!

I hope you enjoy it all, xx Mandy

How did you first get started in the fashion industry? What made you want to start your own label?

I have been in the industry in many different forms. I had a store called Blonde, I have styled and then got asked by Planet blue to come up with a private label. That's how I got introduced to design. Never went to school and have zero formal training. If you saw my sketches you would fall over.

For those who don’t know you personally, I’d imagine most people think you are Flynn Skye. Mind sharing with us who Flynn Skye is, and how it came to be your brand name?

Flynn is my daughter. She is my little muse and pretty much on of my all time favorite people. If I had the confidence she did, I would rule the world.

Rumor has it that this is your first collaboration. What attracted you to collaborating with Amuse Society?

I just loved the idea of getting to be involved in swim. The good part of a collab is you get to make something with someone who has expertise in that field. Amuse is also a brand that makes sense..

When designing this collection, who was the girl you were envisioning? Describe her to us.

I am always envisioning something for everyone. At this point everything has been done so my hopes is just to make something that I am proud of and that speaks to my customer. Oh and that sparks joy.

Photographer Cameron Hammond (and his lovely wife/producer, Rachel) took this collection to Belize to shoot the lookbook. Where is your favorite swimwear-clad destination?

I want to go to that beach that has pink sand. I have zero idea where that is but I know it exists from photos. Looks magical.

What is your favorite piece from the AMUSE x Flynn Skye collaboration?

I love it all. I am so happy with how it came out. Each piece represents a different mood. Am I feeling sporty or girly...I like it all ha ha

What’s next for you and your brand? Any fun plans this summer?

My life is pretty fun. I am excited about the summer collection. It was a really strong collection. As far as plans go I just want to try and give back more and definitely throw some travel in there. Def throw some of those bikinis in a bag and go...

Amuse x Flynn Skye Launch Party

The collaboration of the summer – Amuse Society x Flynn Skye – has finally arrived. How else would we celebrate, than throwing a launch party, a la Amuse-style?!

We invited our favorite ladies and headed to the Flynn Skye flagship store in Venice to sip, snap, and dance the night away. Our favorite best friend duo, Kaitlynn Carter and Kelsey White, along with our favorite sister-duo, Lauren and Mollie Bushnell, along with countless other babes (we’re talking about you Carmella Rose, Kyra Santoro, Natascha Elisa, Paige Watkins, Sophie Elkus, and so many more) joined us as we reveled the entire Amuse x Flynn Skye collection and lookbook.

Guests enjoyed a night filled with endless Maison CR's Coeur de Rosé (our favorite!), fresh coconut water and our signature desserts (made to match our exclusive Amuse x Flynn Skye patterns). Everyone got summer-ready thanks to the amazing OUAI stylists who created the perfect beach wave (with a little help from the OUAI Wave Spray), along with Hydrating Lip Stains from LORAC (beach bag necessity) and Glow on the Go (it’s all natural, of course) from our friends at Infinity Sun.

The night ended with countless pics taken in our custom Amuse x Flynn Skye Foxtales photo booth and grooving to the best 70’s beats on the “dance” (er, Flynn Skye) floor.

Amuse x Flynn Skye launch party was a total dream – the perfect complement to this dreamy collab.

Check out all the party pics from the night, here!
