For a slightly lighter suitcase, leave your bathing suit at home and buy a skimpy number while in Rio to match the local beachgoers. After Vanity Fair covered Lenny’s collection, Nicole Kidman did herself a favor and ordered a couple dozen. If you want to stay within a budget, check out the beach shops in Ipanema and Copacabana for slightly less expensive swimsuits. Remember, nothing says I’m a tourist like a huge bathing suit bottom. And that goes for both men and women.
