The bikini (or at least a swimsuit) is an essential part of the wardrobe on Maui. The great news is there are so many styles and selections to choose from that there’s a suit for every shape. CaraMiya Davies-Reid custom-makes bathing suits for shape and size, and you can order them at Indigo and on Etsy. Maui Girl has been making suits on the island that keep up with trends. At the Bikini Market in Kihei, the Indie Attire Bikinis are hand-sewn and reasonably priced. Hanu Hawaii is a one-woman show, making her bikinis and selling on Etsy.
