Latest Swimsuit Reviews

  • TYR by Sonoma Active Mini Swim Skort Posted: Jan 25, 2015 Reviewer: Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Excellent swim skort. Very comfortable with great coverage and light enough to wear under jeans. Held up well against a rocky beach with rough surf. I thought for sure it would get ruined, and not even a snag. I don't like short clothing, and I was very comfortable on the beach with these.
  • Tommy Bahama by Paisley Floral Stripe Halter Cup Long Tankini Posted: Jan 25, 2015 Reviewer: from Big Bear, CA Overall: 4 Stars Comfort: 4 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    I'm so disappointed this didn't fit in the bust because everything else was perfect. the longer length is flattering and quality is high. I'm a 36B and even though I ordered a small (6-8). I needed to be at a minimum a C-cup to fill out the top.
  • Prana by Raya Bottom Posted: Jan 24, 2015 Reviewer: Ali from Chicago, IL Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    These are the best boyshorts that I have found! I also tried on pairs from Seafolly, Hurley, Roxy, and Nautica, and these are the only ones that I have ever been completely satisfied with. They offer a lot of coverage and support while still looking super cute, and being versatile/wearable/movable. I like the length of the inseam, not too long and not too short. They do not ride up in the back, and they do not have an awkward seam stitching up the center front like other boyshorts which can cause wedgies or just strange fit/looks. They are ultra comfortable. The inner lining and outer materials both seem high quality. They make me feel very comfortable and secure to move around freely and actively. I usually wear a size 4/6 or S/M; I am small and have a curvy butt, and I do not like very tight/clingy clothes - I ordered a medium in these and they fit perfect. The top elastic band can create a slight muffin top effect, but this does not bother me, since overall they fit and feel great. The most comparable pair of boyshorts to these which I tried on was the Seafolly Godess Roll Top Boyleg, which was more expensive and felt less quality and well made, and were more fashiony than functional (the roll top looked cute but was very impractical in my opinion for wearability and active moving and quick-drying). The quality and fit of these boyshorts made me really interested in the Prana brand, it seems like they have great fitting and high quality items.

About Swimsuits

If the weather’s heating up or you’re planning a vacation, the perfect swimsuit will be at the top of your must-have list.  Those who swim regularly know that swimsuits are year-round essentials. Choose the one that’s right for you, and make a splash!

Swimsuit season evokes fond memories of splashing in the waves and basking in the sun, but for some women, it also brings on the anxiety of hitting the beach with a less than perfect figure. Well, fear not! There are women’s swimsuits for every body type.  Here are a few tips for successful shopping for all shapes...

Bigger on the bottom: If you’ve got a bottom-heavy silhouette, chose a one-piece style with a playful skirted hem. 

Large on top: A swimsuit with built-in underwire gives the large-busted gal the lift and support she needs. A halter-style top that ties at the neck allows you to customize the fit. Wide straps provide comfort and support. Check out figure-flattering styles from Tommy Bahama®.

Small on top: Those less generously endowed can hit the beach feeling confidently cute in a bathing suit that features a ruched or ruffled top. Many swimsuits also offer padded cups. Opt for a demi-style top. Guess™ swimsuits are both flattering and on trend.

Long torso: The sexy and modern monokini provides a flattering fit. Traditional bikinis and tankinis are also great choices.

Short legs or torso: Lengthen your leg-line with a swimsuit that is cut high on the thigh. A solid bottom with a printed top creates the illusion of height.

Not so curvy: Make your waistline more prominent with a belted one-piece suit. Chose bikinis or one-piece suits that are cut high on the thigh.

Plus size: Opt for a one-piece suit or tankini in darker colors. A plus size swimsuit with built-in underwire and crisscrossing straps will provide the support you’re looking for.

Pregnant: Your best option is a tankini, specially designed for moms-to-be, that will accommodate your growing belly and look chic all season long. Check out fabulous maternity swimsuits from Belabumbum™.

Don’t forget, swim separates give you the option of getting just the right size for the top and bottom. Throw on a cover-up, like a sarong or sheer pullover, to complete that poolside-diva look.

Men have plenty of options too. Board shorts take you from the beach to the boardwalk in style. Brands like Volcom®, Oakley® and Diesel® offer an array of colors and prints to suit your style. Speedo® and TYR® offer men’s swimsuits that are perfect for training. If your summer plans include surfing, check out the great selection from Reef™, Fox™ and Hurley™.

Kids practically live in swimwear when summer rolls around. Whether it’s hanging out at the pool or taking a trip to the beach, kids will look stellar in their favorite brands. Offering a complete line of swimsuits, rashguards and boardshorts, Roxy® Kids and Hurley™ Kids is sure to be at the top of any girl’s list. Don’t forget the classic swimwear silhouettes of Lilly Pulitzer® Kids, Petit Bateau™ and Kate Mack™. Boys need great swimwear too, so if he’s looking for some rad swim trunks or boardshorts check out DC® Kids, Quiksilver™ Kids and Hurely™ Kids to grab plenty of attention. Le top™ is a perfect brand for infants, toddlers and little kids with their whimsical designs for boys and girls. Have fun in the sun with the right water gear this year!
