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.

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 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?

Why are long shorts the standard for mens swimsuits?

I always find it odd that the standard for mens swim attire is long shorts. I think its funny when someone gives the excuse that its because men have dicks, as if their dick is 18" long LOL.
