Stylish swimsuits are even more plentiful than Aperol Spritzes in “The White Lotus” season two. The HBO show’s second installment is set at a seaside resort in Sicily where the characters lounge around in chic vacation attire as suspense builds around the mysterious deaths teased in the premiere.
The swimwear envy kicks off in the opening scene when we meet Meghann Fahy’s Daphne, who’s wearing a yellow plunging one-piece covered in multicolored starfish. Viewers are treated to an all-angles look at the suit as she applies sunscreen, chats with other beachgoers, and wades into the ocean where she discovers a dead body.
Daphne’s one-piece hails from a local Italian brand called Le Follie Shop, which was likely an intentional move to make the show’s European setting feel more authentic. “The White Lotus” costume designer Alex Bovaird also chose bikinis and one-pieces from Italian brands like Pucci and La Perla for vacationers (like Daphne and Aubrey Plaza’s Harper) and locals (like Simona Tabasco’s Lucia). In season one of the series, Bovaird similarly sourced thrifted clothing to accurately portray Olivia (Sydney Sweeney) and Paula (Brittany O’Grady) as Gen Z best friends.
As the suspense continues growing and characters continue displaying their enviable vacation style, read ahead to shop the best swimsuit moments to come from “The White Lotus” season two so far.
