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.

SWIM OUTLET

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award In the last decade, Swim Outlet has grown to be the largest online retailer in the US when it comes to swimming, beach fashion, and surf products. Based in California, this swimsuit retailer has over 100,000 products, ranging from designer swimwear labels to competitive swimsuits for team competitions, triathlons, and more.

We were impressed to see all of the major names in both fashion and competitive swimwear, from Speedo and TYR to Vix and Vitamin A. Most of the other retailers in our review tend to focus on one specialty - sexy bikinis or plus-size style, for example - and we love that Swim Outlet can save shoppers time by truly being a one-stop shop for the entire family.

While at first glance Swim Outlet's prices are often higher than their competitors', the "Price Match Guarantee" link immediately above the swimsuits' prices makes it fast and easy to connect with a representative via live chat and get the lower price. Furthermore, Swim Outlet's availability in a variety of sizes was better than the competition, which is helpful when you can't wait weeks for your tankini top to ship and the matching bottom is already available.

Swim Outlet has a generous return policy and shipping costs to match. New and unused swimsuits can be returned within 60 days of the shipment date, for a full refund, and all orders of $49 and more receive free shipping. Even better, customers with orders of $99 and up get free 1-2 day shipping; if your swimwear purchase doesn't quite reach that amount, Swim Outlet offers a wide variety of accessories, from goggles and pool toys to sandals and rash guard shirts that you can add to your cart. For smaller purchases, shipping is a flat $4.99.

Because of their incredible selection of in-stock inventory, customer-friendly shipping and price match guarantee, and a wide variety of swim accessories, Swim Outlet is a standout among online retailers of swimsuits. We give them our highest rating for swimwear shopping.

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?
