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.

Swim Spot

SWIM SPOT Visit Site

With retail locations in California and Hawaii, Swim Spot's online store features swimwear with a distinct West Coast feel. Brands you'll find at Swim Spot include Hurley, Juicy Couture, Ella Moss, Vix, and Beach Riot. The site is easy to navigate; shoppers can shop by category and filter by color, size, and price, among others. We love how customers can easily see the back view of every suit, just by hovering over the model's image - no click or zoom necessary.

Swim Spot's prices are competitive with other online swimsuit stores. At the time of our review, the home page featured a limited-time offer for 30% off all purchases; there was also an option to enter one's email address for a 15% discount when signing up for Swim Spot's "insiders" email list. Standard shipping is free on all orders over $50, which includes most swimwear in their collection.

Swim Spot's return policy is comparable to other reputable retailers in our review: unworn swimwear may be returned within 30 days of purchase. Return shipping is free if the customer is exchanging the item for another; otherwise, the customer may either use their own shipping method or use a Swim Spot return label with the understanding that $8 will be deducted from their refund.

Noticeably absent from Swim Spot's selection is anything for men and boys. They do have a small collection for girls, primarily bikinis. Also, while the company has a nice variety of "active wear", including Next's line of swimwear that includes styles labeled as "barre to beach", you won't find swimsuits for more athletic water sports such as competitive swimming or triathlon. Sizes are also limited; we saw only one suit available in sizes larger than 16 (and it was only in-stock in size 18W), and no cup sizes bigger than a 38DD.

Because many shoppers might not find what they're looking for in Swim Spot's limited offerings for men, children, and plus sizes, we've given them a lower rating.

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?
