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.

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.

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 Ė 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 Ė 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 thatís really how theyíve 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. Theyíve 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 youíre 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?
