Bikinis weren’t just made to sun as much of your body as possible. With Louisa Ngum’s collections at Honey Girl, you not only look cute, but can swim, surf and paddle without fear of unexpectedly flashing strangers. “The cuts are made to stay,” says Ngum. “I try not to use hooks, but use ties or drawstrings.” Ngum has been designing locally inspired suits since 1997, and her bikinis, one-pieces and shorts are now sold in stores in Hawaii, on the Mainland, and in Australia, Canada and Japan. Ngum even has professional body boarders, surfers and paddlers sporting Honey Girl. Another benefit? All two-piece suits are sold separately, so you can mix and match, and most of the tops are reversible. 396-9963,
