To see exactly what the suits looked like IRL, we asked Graham and four NYC-based fashion bloggers to come in to BuzzFeed.

From left to right, these bloggers test drove the bathing suits:

• Nazira Sacasa on Instagram at @Nazirasacasa

• Dana Martinez of the blog Who's That Girl Dana?

• Kelly Augustine of the blog Kelly Augustine

• Shainna Tucker of the blog A Thick Girl's Closet

First up, Kelly tried on the Secret Agent swimsuit ($76.30) in the color Siren.

Kelly's thoughts: "I felt both supported and SO sexy in this piece. There is an h-back which provides extra support in the shoulders and neck, which I love."

Size Worn: 20. Kelly usually wears a 20 in swimsuits and an 18 in clothing.

Nazira tried the Liaison swimsuit ($76.30) in black.

Nazira's Thoughts: "Definitely tapping into my inner James Bond in this piece! I feel super badass! It's not the typical type of swimwear I wear but once I put it on, I didn't want to take it off. It's a piece I will be wearing over and over again this summer!"

Size Worn: 16. She usually wears a size 14. "I sized up on this piece so the side strings won't cut into skin. Overall the fit is great and I feel really sexy and comfortable."

Shainna tried the Spy swimsuit ($76.30) in black.

Kelly's Thoughts: "The bikini is not for the faint of heart! For busty girls, the top may pose a challenge, and the bottoms for the well-endowed in the booty."

Size Worn: 20. Kelly usually wears a 20 in swimsuits and a size 18 in clothing.

Nazira's Thoughts: "I've never worn a string bikini and usually I go for black swimsuits but I LOVE the purple. It fits perfectly and I can now say yes, I wear string bikinis!"

Size Worn: 12 top, 14 bottom. Nazira usually wears a size 14.

Then, Shainna tried the Secret Agent suit ($76.30) in black.

Shainna's Thoughts: "This suit definitely took me out of my comfort zone. I normally don't wear swimsuits with open backs because of my back fat, but this was too sexy not to wear."

Size Worn: 20. She usually wears a size 18 in one-piece swimsuits.

You can get the Secret Agent suit here in black or red.

Finally, Dana tried on the Stakeout swimsuit ($198) in black.

Size Worn: 20. Dana usually wears a size 16.
