My Favorite Places to Shop for Swimwear

With the temperatures warming up, it’s time to start prepping for days at the pool, trips to the beach and any fun summer plans that are in the works! When it comes to summer pieces like shorts, coverups and swimsuits I like to stock up on them before the season fully starts. I personally find that the selection of these items is best before the season is in full-swing, so I always make sure to grab the items I like so I can get the most wear out of them throughout the summer months. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite places to shop for swimwear and coverups. I am pretty picky when it comes to swimsuits (give me a full-coverage butt, please haha!) and all of these retailers are tried and true favorites! I would love to hear where y’all like to shop for swimwear!

Aerie

I have been shopping at Aerie for swimsuits for about five years or so. I first discovered them when I was looking for a “full coverage” swimsuit bottom, which felt like a major feat at the time! I ordered a few suits on a whim and ended up loving all of them. I appreciate their mission to use real bodies (check out their #AerieReal campaign!) and never photoshopping their models! They have a great selection of suits no matter what your shape is or the style you are looking for!

 

Abercrombie

I love Abercrombie and their come back! I have been shopping there for a few years now (again!) and each order has me more and more obsessed with their items. I tried out their swimsuits last year and really like them. They have a great amount of trendy and classic styles. The prints and colors are always really fun! Just be aware that the sizing can be a little off. I typically go up one size in their tops and bottoms. I stay away from the cheeky bottoms, too haha! 😉

 

Land’s End

I partnered with Land’s End in April to share their swim collection on Instagram. They have so many different swim styles that it was hard to narrow down which ones I wanted to share with you all! I was most impressed by their inclusive sizing. They offer petite, tall, plus size up to size 30, and suits for women who have had a mastectomy. I love my blue printed one piece suit and can’t wait to bring it along one any trips this summer!

Everything But Water

If you’re looking for the trendiest swimsuits and a wide range of designers, definitely head to Everything But Water. They have been around for so long and they are a trusted go-to retailer for swimsuits. Fun fact, I remember shopping at Everything But Water with my mom many, many years ago! I also remember being mad that she wouldn’t let me get a suit from there when I was like 11 haha! They carry some of my favorite designers including Becca (here is their plus size line), L*Space, Vitamin A, and PilyQ!

 

J.Crew

One of my favorite seasons to shop J.Crew is in the summer because they totally kill the game with fun prints and styles on everything from dresses to swim! I’ll admit, I have had a few misses in the J.Crew swim department (their Playa line is TINY) but for the most part their swimwear is great! I love the French bikini top and these bottoms. I have them in multiple colors and prints!
