Although Summer should be a time for a stress-free break from school or work, bar-b-ques, fireworks, s’mores, and late night campfires, there seems to be one aspect of all that fun which stresses many of us out each year: bathing suit shopping. Whether it’s trying to get in shape before bikini season rolls around again, or the actual shopping to find the perfect swimsuit that flatters our bodies, no one looks forward to it. Here are some stores to help you on your journey to a stress-free summer. Enjoy the summer and strut that new bathing suit on the beach with pride!
Where to Shop:
ASOS– Fashion retailer based in the UK offers over 850 name brands, and their own brand even offers free shipping to over 190 countries.
Modcloth- Modcloth has a wide selection of cute retro printed bathing suits including nautical inspired and high waisted options. Each piece is priced under $100.
Net-A-Porter– Browse selections from many different brands including: Tory Burch, Dolce & Gabbana, Jason Wu, Oscar De La Renta, Valentino, etc.
Target– Each year Target has a big selection of bathing suits, and the best thing is they are super cute, yet still affordable! Usually brought out in stores a few months before summer, you have plenty of time to shop around! They have many different cuts of bathing suits, in both solid colors, and fun prints. If you’re not quite ready to sport a daring print, pick up a few solid color pieces, and you can always experiment with mixing and matching colors.
Old Navy– Old Navy is another store that has a great selection of bathing suits each year for a low cost. Bathing suits will fade fast especially in salty beach water, so no one wants to spend $100 per piece to get one summer of use. Start your shopping early, because by June there isn’t much of a selection left.
Victoria’s Secret– Featuring many different cuts and styles, and even push up tops, feel sexy on the beach this season!
Everythingbutwater.com– Features unique styles of bathing suits, including collaborations with major designers like: Sperry, Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, Vitamin A and L*Space. Reluctant about shopping online? Their ‘Perfect Fit Guide’ will help you determine the best cut suit to flatter your body type. You will fall in love with their selection!
