Bikini season is almost here! Now that vacations and beach days are officially on everyone’s minds, it’s time to think about which swimsuits you’ll be stocking up on this year. I completely understand how much pressure it can be to find the right bathing suit, especially when it comes to fit and comfort. It’s so important to feel confident when you’re walking down the beach or just lounging by the pool, so I’ve narrowed down some shops that always get their swimsuit selection just right. These are guaranteed to have you feeling great this bikini season, no matter where you’re headed.
Monday was founded by Natasha Oakley and Devin Brugman of A Bikini A Day with one thing in mind—confidence. Apart from being swimwear connoisseurs, the ladies are also body positivity activists and made sure to incorporate that into their swimwear. You’ll find gorgeous one-piece and two-piece designs including ribbed finishes, fun patterns, neutrals and more throughout the collection.
My friend Shea Marie launched Same in 2015, and since then it’s skyrocketed to success. You’ve seen her pieces on everyone from Kendall Jenner to Hailey Baldwin and probably every fashion influencer on your feed. Designed and based in LA, Same is full of a variety of retro-inspired and modern pieces. From high-waisted bottoms to neon one-pieces, Same has it all.
I love shopping at Revolve in general, but the site has a great selection of swimwear too. Revolve is a great place for me to shop for more indie brands instead of household names when it comes to swimwear, and I also can mix a ton between pieces. Some of my favorite brands such as Tularosa, Lovers + Friends, and lovewave all have swimwear available on Revolve.
If you shop on Shopbop as much as I do, you likely get on there for hours. The options are endless because the inventory is massive but in the best way possible. In terms of swimwear, there’s currently 26 pages of product to choose from on the site, so take your sweet time shopping. Familiar names such as Norma Kamali, Solid & Striped, and Beach Riot are all available on Shopbop.
When I’m looking for more luxe swimwear pieces, I head over to Net-a-Porter. I could find high-end designer pieces that will photograph very beautifully and are great for longer trips. Renowned designers such as Zimmerman, Mara Hoffman, and Lisa Marie Fernandez are always on my radar at Net-a-Porter.
