Did the groundhog see his shadow this year? I can’t remember. Either way, warmer weather is on the horizon and brands are releasing their swim collections for summer. Below are some of my favourite swimsuit picks this season at a range of price points.
And in case you needed a reminder: every body is a swimsuit body. Take your summer back and have a blast in the pool with a suit that fits you perfectly and makes you feel amazing. You deserve it.
Asos has a lot of styles to choose from at a reasonable price point. Sizing varies across brands and styles.
Eloquii released their swim collection last weekend and it is good. Sizing up to 32.
If you love classic cuts in vibrant colours, a suit from J. Crew may be for you. Sized up to 3X/24.
Joe Fresh has a tiny plus size swim collection (and a much larger straight-size collection, not cool Joe Fresh). But they are cute and affordable so I’m including them here. Sizing up to 3X.
Although not necessarily the most fashion-forward suits out there, Land’s End has a huge selection that is worth checking out, especially if you participate in pool fitness or water sports. They have a wide variety of one pieces, separates, coverups, and rash guards in a ton of cuts and styles.
