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.

Swimsuits Direct

SWIMSUITS DIRECT Visit Site

New Jersey retailer Swimsuits Direct hopes to make swimsuit shopping fun. With a wide variety of swimwear for women, juniors, girls, and even babies, shoppers can find many different styles for their swimsuit needs. Available brands include Body Glove, Jessica Simpson, Lucky Brand, and Anne Cole.

Prices at Swimsuits Direct are competitive, and their "About Us" page says that they do match prices with other retailers (though no specifics were offered as to the process to do so). We got a pop-up offering 15% off our next order for entering our email address, which presumably would sign us up for their email list.

Searching for swimwear at Swimsuits Direct had a few quirks. For example, when searching for the popular Gottex Rio tankini to compare prices, the search returned more than 100 results, most of which only matched the word "Rio" and not the designer. Otherwise, the process was fairly simple: choose a category from the top such as women or girls, then select either the style of the suit or the brand name. It was also easy to see what each suit looked like from multiple angles. We were also glad to see a variety of swimsuits in those same brands in plus sizes up to 24W, making it more likely that shoppers of all shapes and sizes will find something that fits.

Swimsuits Direct carries a moderate collection of accessories, from cover-ups to Havaianas flip-flops.

Shipping at Swimsuits Direct is $5, regardless of the order total. Their return policy is more generous than some of the retailers in our review: unused swimwear can be returned within 60 days for a full refund.

Because of their customer-friendly shipping and returns policy, and their selection that includes swimwear for juniors, girls, and plus sizes, we give Swimsuits Direct good marks. That rating would easily improve with swimwear options for men, and maybe with the addition of a few lines of swim apparel for more athletic needs such as competitive swimming, but overall they're a solid choice among online swimsuit retailers.

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?
