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.

Hapari

HAPARI Visit Site

Created in 2005 by a group of moms who wanted swimwear for women that was fashionable as well as flattering, Hapari is committed to enhancing a woman's natural beauty no matter her shape.

Using the navigation at the top of the page, customers can easily find swimsuits according to style, from tankinis to one-piece suits and more. Pricing is reasonable, with most suits and many top/bottom combinations available for less than $100. At the time of our review, Hapari was offering a 20% discount on all orders.

Shipping costs are simple and relatively inexpensive: $4 to $7 for first-class shipping via USPS, with priority, overnight, and express options available for an additional fee. The site also has free shipping promotions on a regular basis.

Hapari's return policy is similar to most of its similarly-ranked competitors: unworn, unused, and unwashed swimsuits can be returned within 30 days of shipment. If a suit is deemed as defective after it has been worn, customers can get an online gift certificate up to the original price of the defective item (for example, 1-3 months after purchase = certificate for the full price, 3-6 months after purchase = 75% of the purchase price, 6-12 months = 50% of the purchase price). This does not apply to damage resulting from tanning oils, hot tubs, sand and/or dirt, or highly-chlorinated pools.

One aspect of Hapari's swimsuit selection that surprised us was a lack of availability in larger sizes. Although the company expresses a commitment to helping women of all shapes and sizes to find the right swimsuit, we were only able to find four styles of one-piece swimwear in sizes larger than XL. Larger women may fare better if shopping for bikinis and tankinis, if the selection increased in those styles.

On the other hand, Hapari goes to great lengths to help their customers find the right swimsuit for their shape. There's a handy Size & Fit Guide on the website, and if shoppers need further assistance they can call one of Hapari's Style consultants and get free, expert advice.

Because of Hapari's strong commitment to providing swimsuits for women of all shapes and their eagerness to give personalized help with finding the right fit, we give them a very high rating.

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?
