    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:

    • 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."

    Kelly also tried the Double-Cross bikini ($76.30) in the shade Siren.

    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.

    You can get the Double-Cross Bikini here. Plus, you can choose a separate top and bottom size for this bikini.

    Dana wore the Heist swimsuit ($208.60) 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.
