Swimming Suits We Want to Wear for Summer

Shopping for swimming suits. Not exactly our favorite item to shop for…am I right? But, finding the perfect suit that’s cute, fits your body, and makes you feel confident is a must for the summertime! Especially if you have any plans for going to the beach, pool, or lake.

We both recently went through all of our swimming suits and did a big purge, getting rid of ones that aren’t our style or no longer fit (looking at you teeny tiny bikini!). We then each made a list of ones that we wanted to add to our swimsuit rotation.

Swimming Suits for Sweet Summertime

Palm print two-piece swimming suit with jean shorts

Palm Print Suit / Shorts / Hat / Sunglasses / Sandals

Here are swimming suits we each bought, along with others we have our eyes on…

Casey’s Picks

Anyone else pumped that one-pieces are trendy now?! Holy smokes, yes, please! I’ve always been a two-piece girl, but I’d have a one-piece ready to go for more active days when you don’t want things falling out. Now that one-pieces are in…I’m all about rocking them all the time!

I purchased a striped one-piece from J.Crew last year (they don’t sell the same one anymore, but this one is super similar), and I still love it. Even though J.Crew is a bit pricier, their quality can’t be beat and I always know that any swimsuit I buy from them will last for multiple seasons. I’ve been eyeing this strapless one-piece because…no tan lines! I wonder if it would stay up well enough though…A striped swimming suit and sandals for summertime

Swimming Suit / Sandals / Sunglasses / Book / Hat

I used to buy a new swimming suit every year from Victoria’s Secret (so sad they no longer sell them!), so now I’m looking for a new spot to get good swimsuits. I recently bought 2 suits from the online retailer Cupshe and was super nervous since they’re so inexpensive and you can’t try them on before buying. I figured they’d be really cheap and might fall apart right away. I’m happy to report that the 2 suits I bought (this one and this one) are actually sooooo cute! Will they last forever? Probably not. But fun prints for about $20…I’ll take it!

Criss Cross Bathing Suit

I just got this suit and it really is as good as the reviews say. It’s a little tricky to put on, but once you do…so flattering! Plus, for $24 you can’t beat the price!

Floral Cut Out Suit

This is another new purchase (at under $30!) that I’m so happy I got for the summer. Love the stripes and floral pattern.

Striped Strapless Suit

A strapless suit is always a must, especially when you want to avoid those dreaded tan lines. I always love swimming suits from J.Crew because they last forever!

White Bikini Set

Love the simplicity of this bikini set and white is always the best when you get a bit of a tan!

Palm Print Bikini Set

I couldn’t resist the palm print pattern on this two-piece. I just got this one and I’m in l-o-v-e. Bring on the summertime fun!

Summer Fridays Swimsuit

It doesn’t get any better than Summer Fridays! I adore the cute text on this fun swimming suit.

Bridget’s Picks

Like Casey, I am SUPER pumped that one-piece swimsuits are trendy right now. I definitely don’t have any immediate plans to get back in a bikini anytime soon. And let’s be honest, I don’t know if that will ever happen and I’m totally okay with that because one-pieces are so comfy and offer a lot more coverage for a fair skin girl like me.

But having so many adorable one-piece options available right now just seems too good to be true. I feel like I have to stock up on all the one-pieces before they go back out of style. Haha! So far I bought this one and later found it it’s the same one Casey bought. Here are the other ones I’m currently loving (especially for their affordable prices!)…

Green Lace One-Piece

I recently bought this lace suit from Amazon and LOVE it. The quality is very good, especially for the $25 price tag!

White, Striped One-Piece

I’m a sucker for stripes, as evidenced by my next three picks. But how cute is this white striped suit for under $30?!

Shop This

Tie Front Striped Suit

Here’s another tie-front, striped suit that I’m currently crushing on. This $23 steal is also a great option if you’re trying to ditch those tan lines!

Shop This

Striped Rash Guard

I had to add this one for my fellow fair-skin ladies tuning in! Sometimes it’s hard to find a rash-guard that’s not super sporty so when I saw this one, I was immediately sold! This paired with colored bottoms (or even printed bottoms) would be adorable.

Shop This

Seersucker One-Piece

And last but not least, I adore this feminine seersucker print with the dainty bow. It screams “Hamptons” and would look adorable with a straw hat and jean shorts.

Have you guys picked up any new swimming suits for the summertime? Are you a one-piece or two-piece fan?
