It’s shaping up to be a hot summer, Toronto, and there are only a few ways to keep your cool. Sure, you could hide under a cardigan in the bone-chilling air conditioning at your office—or you could put on your smallest swimsuit and high-tail it to the nearest body of water.
With the arrival of the Thompson Hotel and its rooftop pool at King and Bathurst, we finally have a chic backdrop against which to showcase our tiniest maillots-de-bains. Lest we forget, Toronto is indeed a waterfront city (once you get past that pesky Gardiner Expressway) with plenty of beach property to while away the hours in your two-piece.
Summer in our city is brief and fleeting so here are our picks of the best swimwear for the season, all available in Toronto. Get it while it’s hot.
