The perfect swimsuit for each Enneagram type

Even though exam szn can make all things warm and sunny feel *so* far away, summer is coming up fast. You know what that means? It's time to update that 'kini collection. 

Cute suits are an absolute must-have for the summertime, but with so many patterns, styles and brands to choose from, it can be a bit overwhelming to select your underwater wardrobe. Thankfully, your Enneagram type can tell us a ton about your personal style. After some careful curation, we've selected the ideal swimmie for you based on your personality. We can't wait for your poolside Insta pics.

Type 1: The Perfectionist

This elegant set just screams coastal grandmother summer, and we are so here for it. A good match for the rational Type 1 girl, this triangle bikini is a classic look that works for just about any occasion. Fourth of July pool party? Beach day with your besties? This timeless top-and-bottom pair will never fail you.

Type 2: The Helper

Type 2 girls are always the first to lend a helping hand to others, so they deserve to serve some looks too. This delicate one-piece has a romantic-feeling, feminine cut that we're *so* obsessed with. The gentle color scheme and floral pattern represent the kind and considerate (yet still stylish!) gal you are. 

Cider, $20

Type 3: The Achiever

One thing is for certain: Type 3 girls like to shine. Good thing this suit will match your attention-grabbing energy. With a classy scoop neck and eye-catching iridescence, you'll be the belle of the midsummer ball. And that shimmering blue color gives total Aquamarine vibes, don't you think? 

Aerie, top $26, bottoms $19

Type 4: The Individualist

If we know something about Type 4s, it's that they're anything but ordinary. Luckily, this swimmie has a pattern and cut that puts a totally unique spin on the classic triangle 'kini. Our fave part is def that sassy wrap-around waist. 

Target, top $20, bottoms $15

Type 5: The Investigator

Type 5 girls are usually a bit more reserved than others—but DW, you can use that trait to your advantage. In this chic O'Neill wetsuit, you'll be blending modesty with a flirty cutout. Are you off to catch some waves or just lounge by the pool? The world may never know. 

O'Neill, $80

Type 6: The Loyalist

You're a loyal gal, which means you need a swimsuit that won't let you down, either. Thankfully, this one-shoulder bikini is both cute *and* comfy. The high-waisted bottoms will enhance your mobility, but the mesh cutouts will keep you looking oh-so trendy. Def the move for an inpromptu pool party.

Type 7: The Enthusiast

What better way to show off your fun-loving energy than with an asymmetric one-piece that changes colors? Yep, you heard that right. When you take a dip in the ocean, the cool temps will change your suit from yellow and pink to red and purple. It goes without saying: This is the ultimate Type 7 swimsuit. 

Cupshe, $30

Type 8: The Challenger

Bold and fiery, this suit matches Type 8 girls so well. A bright red bikini is classic and eye-catching, but the etched floral pattern keeps that laid-back energy. If you've got a tropical vacation on tap for the summer, be sure to add this one to your carry-on ASAP.

Pacsun, top $24, bottoms $20

Type 9: The Peacemaker

This baby pink set was made for all Type 9 girlies. The soft, towel-like fabric has a  chill and easygoing feel, just like you!
