Summer is officially in full swing, which means that hopefully you've had more than a few beach and pool days already-- and there's plenty more to come.

But let's be real: the type of summertime adventure you're plotting definitely requires a specific swimsuit (the same type of bikini you wear tanning isn't the same one you'd wear surfing, after all). So we quizzed the experts from ASOS, Deanna Iannello, Senior Swim Buyer and Kate Atkinson, Swim Designer, about which style of swimsuit best fits each type of outing.
