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

SWIM OUTLET Visit Site

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.

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?
