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 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.

Bikini Luxe

BIKINI LUXE Visit Site

Bikini Luxe is an online retail store that sells designer swimwear, clothing and accessories at competitive prices. Their mission is to provide high quality merchandise at a fair price while allowing buyers to make socially conscious decisions. Each brand they feature has a strong mission statement – it could be planting a tree for every item sold, helping feral dogs in Bali or providing a single mother with a stable job.

Bikini Luxe offers swimwear for Women, Men and children. Of course, the largest selection is available for women. Bikinis, one pieces, monokinis, reversible swimsuits, etc – hundreds of options available that appear to be catered toward the smaller frame. Bikini Luxe also offers clothing and accessories for Women and Men. Once again, the largest selection is available for Women. Coverups, rompers, dresses, active wear, lingerie, jewelry, sunglasses and more.

Bikini Luxe does have a nice assortment of trendy swimwear. Sizes range from XS-XL and A-DD cup. Prices range anywhere from $15 to $300+. Free shipping in the US. Navigating the website is fairly easy. Shoppers have the option of searching by designer or by product. We wish Bikini Luxe would allow shoppers to search by size to expediete the search effort. On the website they also have a blog where you can look current trends and outfit inspirations. Bikini Luxe has a huge social media presence and that’s really how they’ve grown their business over the years.

All items purchased from Bikini Luxe are eligible for exchange or refund within 14 days of delivery. If you are opting for store credit, you can ship back your returns for free. If not, you have to pay for shipping. They do have a long list of return policy guidelines that you must follow in order to receive the refund. Bikini Luxe offers a phone number and email if you are needing to speak with customer service.

Now the not so great news. Bikini Luxe had a D- Better Business Bureau rating at the time of our review. They’ve had multiple complaints filed against them on the BBB website. Most of the complaints are about refunds and returns. Many individuals have tried to return goods and were never refunded. Multiple attempts were made to get the refund but emails and calls were left unanswered. Also, Bikini Luxe also seems to cater to more petite figures. With lots of skimpy suits with minimal fabric the majority of customers would not find offerings for their particular body type. The customer service issues at Bikini Luxe and their limited target market has pushed this company below average in our rankings.

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?
