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.

Who+What+Wear

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:

Victoria%2527s+Secret+White+bikini
        VS -Top $20. This suit also comes in peach or black here

White+Bikini+back
VS Bottoms- $18

Victorias+Secret+Suit
                   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.

swimsuit+cover+H%2526M

                   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

    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!

  9. miss andrea lee says:

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

  10. Love Camie says:

    Love,

  15. Jay says:

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

  16. Taehreh says:

  26. Emma says:

    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!

    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! :)

  37. Chelsea Lane says:

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

    xoxo

  38. TOPCOAT says:

    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

  39. Tracy-Girl @ Then I Got To Thinking says:

    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 ;)

  43. Nnenna says:

    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!
