Today, I thought it would be great to share the 11 best places to buy swimsuits online to help you get ready for Spring Break and Summer.  I have received so many questions about swimsuits since our Mother-Daughter trip to Miami in January.  It seems we are all ready for beach season!

One of my least favorite things to do is try-on swimwear and having to do it at the store somehow makes it even worse! I love to shop online and try on at home. These are my favorite places to find great swimsuits. Below you will find a list of brands and then also multi-brand retailers where I find my cute swimsuits online.  Most offer free shipping and have a great return policies.

11 Best Places to Shop for Swimsuits Online

My Favorite Brands to Shop for Swimsuits Online

Summersalt

My recommendation:  The Sidestroke in a solid or tri color combo.

I absolutely love the concept behind Summersalt. They took 1.5 million measurements from 10,000 women to create the perfect swimsuits for every woman. They are most known for their Sidestroke one piece swimsuit but have since developed so many others that are extremely flattering. They offer sizing zero through 24.  If you are a tall girl or have a long torso they even have a fit for you! Most are under $100.

J.Crew

My recommendation:  The Bow Shoulder One Piece or Square Ring Bikini in Safari or Black

J.Crew has made some of my favorite swimsuits for many years. The one shoulder bow swimsuit I took to St. Lucia has become one of my all-time favorites. Luxurious fabrics, great details and classic styling are hallmarks of J.Crew swim.

Helen Jon

My Recommendation:  The Bandeau one piece in Navy or White

Helen Jon is a newer brand for me but I have loved her styles. This navy strapless one piece bandeau swimsuit is an all-time best seller on AWL. I have my eye on this white bikini for Spring Break.

Bleu by Rod Beattie

My Recommendation: This Mesh Detail One Piece or any of their one piece and bikinis for good coverage and style.

This one-piece swimsuit style that I featured in January has been a bestseller for the past six weeks in every color. Bleu by Rod Beattie is a company committed to designing chic, sophisticated swimwear that is wearable.  I love this bikini I also wore in St. Lucia.

Cabana Life

My Recommendation:  The Sleeveless Unisuit or this Bikini in your favorite print.

Cabana Life, as you know, is another favorite swimsuit brand. The AWL x Cabana Life Essentials Collection from last summer was a huge hit. My most worn swimsuit style from Cabana Life is the sleeveless unisuit. It was a must have for all the time we spent at the lake last summer. They also offer stylish cover ups and dresses all in sun protective UPF 50 fabrics.

Becca

My Recommendation: Any of their suits!  I love their crochet detail.  Mine is almost sold out but I found some here!  My daughters and I all have some of their bikinis as well.

Becca is another brand I love wearing.  Their one-piece swimsuits are stylish and sophisticated with a bit of whimsy and great details as well.  I also love that their bikini pieces are sold separately to ensure the perfect fit.  I have this one in my cart for Spring Break!

Lilly Pulitzer

You know I’m a huge Lilly fan!  Lilly swimsuits and coverups always have a great fit and classic styles.  Their quality lasts for years!  I even passed Lilly suits down from daughter #1 to daughter #3!  That’s great quality and value!

My Favorite Retailers to Shop for Swimsuits Online

Whether you are shopping for a one piece swimsuit, bikini, tankini or swim separates, I highly recommend shopping at one of these online retailers in addition to the brands above to find the perfect swimsuit!  Each of these retailers carry my favorite brands of swimsuits to buy online as well as many others.  They all have free shipping and returns as well. I’ve included a lot of my favorite swimsuits both sophisticated one pieces and cute bikinis in the boutique below.  Stay tuned for a completely updated Resort Shop featuring Spring Break styles coming Friday.

    I love that Becca swimsuit!! You make a good point, I also really appreciate brands and retailers that allow you to purchase pieces separately to ensure a good fit! Personally, I cannot buy a two piece suit unless I can pick my sizes.

  2. Lesley

    I have the J Crew bow suit at home now-in the most beautiful red! Trying on to decide which size fits best. What size are you wearing and does it stretch at all?

  3. Lesley

    Also, regarding the black Summersault one-shoulder suit: it is a great style but also try the Andie Wynwood-it fit me much better and is very similar! Thanks for this great and timely post as we are just dreaming again of being in the sun here in Seattle!
