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.

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?
