I love shopping. I’ve always found trying on new clothes and picking out new pieces to be a fun activity -- that is for everything besides swimwear. Swimwear shopping is a territory of its own. You’re baring most of your body, and for many of us, that can be a bit scary. But at the end of the day, laying by the pool or on the sand will be that much better when you’re wearing something that makes you feel amazing. From comfortable fabrics to fits that flatter and accommodate all style preferences, I rounded up 7 swimwear brands you’ll love. These brands work for all bodies and budgets, so all you have to worry about is about enjoying that summer sunshine.
For The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Suit
I’ve always found one-size-fits-all clothing to be a bit of a disappointment. While I haven’t tried YouSwim myself yet, my fellow TQE Editor Tatiana admitted she was originally skeptical of the brand, but ultimately impressed at how well the suits can fit a variety of people. YouSwim only makes three suits, but each is made to fit seven sizes in one. The fabric is a high quality, European-sourced nylon and elastane blend made to stretch every which way for a perfectly snug, comfy fit on all different body types. Don’t believe us? Try one for yourself and see.
For The Serious Swimmers
Made by female athletes, for female athletes, Jolyn is on a mission to create fun and flattering performance swimwear. The brand’s proprietary Foreverever® fabric is made to last -- it keeps its shape, color, and fit even after years of wear. Because it’s made for activity, Jolyn suits are designed to never fall down. From bikinis to one-pieces, Jolyn has something for every style and every summer activity.
For The Swimsuit Sartorialist
Show up to that pool party in style with a little JADE Swim number. This black- and woman-owned brand is all about luxe materials and classic silhouettes with chic, modern twists. Sustainability is another big tenet; everything is designed in NY and made in LA with sustainable fabrics and conscious production practices. All of the suits only come in solid colors, which makes for a timeless collection.
For The Color Lover
Ookioh's bright colors and fun, flirty silhouettes have me dreaming of crystal blue waters and sandy beaches. All of the suits are named after iconic beach destinations, like the Coronado One Piece and Corsica Top. To thank Mother Nature for her beautiful beaches, Ookioh takes sustainability seriously. The fabrics are made from 100% regenerated materials like ocean waste and pre-consumer waste products.
For The More Modest Look
For suits that you’ll feel comfortable wearing anywhere and everywhere, check out Andie. The brand is on a mission to make stylish swimwear staples that you’ll want to wear season after season. While many companies use fit models to get their sizing, Andie uses feedback and wear testing from thousands of different women. This makes for more innovative and inclusive sizing and fit -- and pre-troubleshooting problems so you don’t have to worry about tugging, pulling, or your bikini bottoms falling down. If you’ve been there too, I’m sorry. Plus, Andie has a quick quiz to help you find your perfect fit.
For The Trendsetters
If you love keeping up with the latest trends, you’ll want to check out Solid & Striped. The brand is always releasing fun new silhouettes, patterns, and even fabrics. There’s even an option to customize suits with embroidery, which I think would be an awesome gift for anyone with a summer birthday. My birthday is in July by the way…
For Every Body and Any Body
The typical range of swimwear sizes doesn’t take into account how different all of our bodies can be. Luckily, Summersalt does. Not only does Summersalt carry suits in sizes 0-24, but the brand also has specially designed suits for long torsos and pregnant bellies. The suits are all thoughtfully designed to have serious compression and offer a variety of different types of booty coverage and boob support. We love to see it.
