Swimsuit Season is Officially Here

Why do I even buy bathing suits? I hate swimming because I’m horrible at it, I rarely take tropical vacations and sunbathing days in San Francisco are practically nonexistent and yet every year I buy a few new bathing suits. Why!? Because they’re just so cute. Of course, how could they not be super cute on a Victoria’s Secret model? icon smile

This year I was going to refrain, until I got this email from WhoWhatWear yesterday which led me Victoria Secret’s site after #4 caught my eye.


Whether you like Victoria’s Secrets’ bras and panties or not, they do design some nice affordable bathing suits. I’ve been buying them online for a few years and they’re almost always great quality. Plus, they’re always on sale early and will be 75-80% off by the end of the summer. 

I may not wear them, but I ordered these two yesterday:

        VS -Top $20. This suit also comes in peach or black here

VS Bottoms- $18

                   I really like tribal print right now, plus I was a fan of the gold hardware and color combo.
VS Top- $16.99, Bottom-$11.99
Bathing Suit Shopping Tips

1. I’ve read in magazines to apply self-tanner and take your time trying on suits in stores. I prefer to buy them online and try them at home.

2. Try your suit on with wedges or heels. That’s what all the celebs do nowadays when I see them in pool party pics. icon smile

3. Buy designs you like, not just what’s “in style” for the season. That’s why I like VS. There are so many different styles and color combos of tops and bottoms you can mix and match to pick exactly what you want.


                   I LOVE cute cover-ups. I got this H&M one above in lime and hot pink last year. 

Visiting Victoria’s Secret made me want about 20 more of their amazing suits.
*If you need a suit ASAP, VS has specials all the time and they have FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25 that ends at midnight EST today. Enter offer code SHIP25VS at checkout.

Where do you buy your bathing suits and
do you have any tips?

Happy Swimsuit Shopping!…If there is such a thing. icon wink

    The ones you ordered are great! I’ve always wanted a white bikini, but there are just too many to choose from. I’m so picky.

    your posts are always very interesting =)

    Got mine from Voda Swim bc they have amazing push up tops, which supposedly increase your size 1-2 cup sizes (although they’re pretty expensive — BUT you can just get the top!). i love it! i have one VS suit which was a steal, though, which also comes in great push-up versions. ;) obviously this is a personal preference!

    Now you got me wanting some cute cover-ups!

  • miss andrea lee

    Love the white one you picked! I’ve always had luck with vs’ swimsuits such cute options and so affordable!

  • Love Camie

    for me, it’s the models that are cute, and not the swimsuits. they’re a bit on the thin side though. ;)

  • Taehreh

    The white one is great, I like it in peach especially. I actually just bought a suit from La Vie en Rose.. still waiting for a time to wear it though.

  • Emma

    Great suits! I have thrown in the towel as far as bathing suits go Lol. I live in Seattle which means maybe 2 weeks of summer and I am shy. You are gorgeous though and should go for it! I would get the second suit if I were you!

    All my favorites come from VS. They have a great fit up top and do wonders for my less than bountiful chest. :)

  • Joanna

  • Erica

    Yes I love white bathing suits for summer (and the ruffles on the Dolce ones are stunning–makes it very chic). I don’t know if I could pull off a white bathing suit though..I’m not tan enough :(

    @Holly -Thanks I’ve haven’t heard of Voda swim
    @ Salina and Olivia-I always feel a little worried ordering online too, but free shipping makes me it better :) Look at the size charts too, they are ususally right on
    @Mimi- Thanks for the link, I’ll check out Beach Bunny
    @Elizabeth -I really like Target suits too! :)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/01546644771792547601 Chelsea Lane

    WOW, those white ones are so striking! I love the white one you ordered, the ruffles are great. awesome tips! :)



    I usually find my swimsuits at Bloomingdale’s.. I typically love ones by Becca, Splendid, and Zimmermann and I find that they are best priced at Bloomies.
    I really agree with the tips posted here, but even when buying in a store – make sure you can return it! What a suit will look like in the dressing room is not usually what it will look like when at home, or in sunlight!!

    Happy weekend! xx

  • Tracy-Girl @ Then I Got To Thinking

    I love VS swimsuits, too and that H&M cover up is adorable! I know what it’s like living in SF, I always felt like I could never have a tan ;)


    I haven´t chosen a swimsuit yet !! but the white option is really cool…

    Im following now your blog… I like it!!

  • Zarna

    how i wish VS also sell that kind of body, haha!

  • Nnenna

    I love the two you picked! I don’t have any tips, I just think that shopping for bathing suits is hard and involves a lot of time trying them on, at least for me!

  • Sada

    I’m with you! Every season I buy another suit or two and I have a huge trunk filled with them….yet I only ever wear the same 2-3?! The cover up is SO gorgeous! I like the print one, but there’s something about a sexy white bikini….
