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.

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 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?
