Buy Your Next Swimsuit at Swim Outlet Today! Whether you're playing in the waves at the ocean or training for your next triathlon, there's one piece of "equipment" that is essential: a Swimsuit! From a casual, comfortable swimsuit, to a cute little string bikini, to a racerback competition suit, having the right swimwear will help you be comfortable and enjoy whatever you're doing in the water.

However, if you live in a part of the country where summer temperatures only last a few months (or weeks!), you could find it increasingly difficult to find a swimsuit at other times of the year. If you're going on a Caribbean cruise in January, for example, you're not likely to find anything at all in a local retail store, let alone a swimsuit that is fashionable and fits well.

Coco Reef

COCO REEF Visit Site

As a division of Swimwear Anywhere, Inc., Coco Reef focuses on "bra-sized swimwear" that particularly helps women who wear cup sizes of C and larger to get an ideal, comfortably-fitting swimsuit. Their selection includes traditional bikinis, tankinis, one-piece bathing suits, and cover-ups, along with several options in plus sizes 1X-3X.

The website makes it easy to see each swimsuit and swim separate from a variety of angles and in all of the available color/pattern varieties, simply by clicking on the image of the model. Shoppers can use the top navigation to start shopping by new arrivals, style collections, tops and bottoms, one-piece swimsuits, cover-ups, plus size, or outlet. The left-hand side of the screen then allows the results to be sorted according to band or cup size, color, style, and price range. Each suit also has a guide for sizing, helping customers ensure that the suit they order is the best possible fit.

Coco Reef accepts returns of unused, non-outlet swimsuits within 30 days of purchase; the customer is responsible for the cost of return shipping, and any shipping costs paid originally will not be refunded. This return policy offers no satisfaction guarantee if, after wearing, a swimsuit proves to be unsatisfactory (for example, it stretches out or breaks down too quickly due to chlorine exposure). Fortunately, there are hundreds of happy customers who give high marks to the quality and fit of the suits sold by Coco Reef.

In fact, the only negative comments we found with respect to Coco Reef's swimwear were based on the price. Although there were a small number of suits available for less than $100, the majority of the options were priced between $100-$200, especially for the more popular swim separates (such as bikini tops and bottoms). However, at the time of our review, there was a pop-up offering 10% off for joining Coco Reef's email list, 35% off site wide, and free shipping on all orders of $99 or more, making a purchase at Coco Reef much more affordable.

Shoppers should also be aware that Coco Reef carries no swimwear for men or children, and we also didn't see any women's swimwear that would be appropriate for more athletic purposes such as swimming laps or competing in a triathlon.

Overall, Coco Reef may be the ideal swimsuit shopping destination for women who traditionally have a hard time finding a good fit on top because of wearing a larger cup size and enjoy the latest in attractive swimwear.

South Beach Swimsuits

SOUTH BEACH SWIMSUITS Visit Site

South Beach is swim style personified. From Mommy-and-Me matching swimsuits to jeweled and embroidered designer labels, they've got something for everyone - including girls, boys, and men.

South Beach also has something for every budget: from $10 bikinis from last year's styles to $400+ couture swimwear you might see on the cover of a magazine. However, we were less impressed by South Beach's pricing when comparing with other retailers. On one item in a very popular swimsuit line, Vitamin A, we quickly found that while the direct-from-the-designer price was higher, at least four competitor sites had the same item for 15% less than South Beach's list price. On that same item in the Vitamin A line, we also noticed that in a size 10, the bottom was able to ship immediately while the top would take 2-4 weeks; again, South Beach's competitors had the complete bikini ready to ship.

South Beach does offer a price matching guarantee, and at the time of our review they were offering 40% off all of the current year's styles. Unfortunately, that discount also means that all sales are final, as their return policy states that any items purchased at that level of discount or higher are returnable for store credit or exchange only.

A positive feature of South Beach's swimsuit collection is that they are one of the few retailers in our review to offer swimwear for boys, girls, and men, including matching swimsuits for moms and daughters. We were pleased to see that the swimwear for little girls was also age-appropriate.

Also, South Beach offers a toll-free number for shoppers who would like the help of a swimsuit consultant to find the right fit for their shape and swimwear needs.

Customer reviews for South Beach Swimsuits run the gamut, from incredibly pleased to extremely dissatisfied. We'd love to see some newer reviews on the company's website, as the most recent dates back to 2014 (though more current reviews are available on other sites).

Fortunately, online stores make it simple and affordable to find the right swimsuit any time of year. With just a click of the mouse, you can search among thousands of options in a wide variety of styles and sizes and have the perfect swimwear sent directly to your doorstep.

However, when looking at different online swimsuit retailers, you should consider several key factors. So that you have the best possible shopping experience, both while searching for the right bathing suit and with any potential returns or other customer service issues, you should keep the following in mind:

  • Website Functionality. How easily can you find what you’re looking for? Is there a sizing guide to help you ensure the proper fit? Can you see the swimsuit from multiple angles?
  • Swimsuit Selection. Does the company offer a wide variety of styles in your size(s)?
  • Price. How do the swimsuit prices compare to other retailers? What are the shipping costs, if any?
  • Return Policy. If your swimsuit arrives and you need to return it for any reason, will you be able to do so? Will you be required to pay a restocking fee or return shipping costs?
