With swimsuit season just around the corner, I want to share a few of my favorite online retailers for swim apparel to help you get ready for Spring Break and Summer. If a tropical destination or backyard pool fun is calling your name, then this post is for you. Plus, I’ve got some discount codes available with a few retailers!

Trying on swimsuits is never fun and there’s nothing worse than walking into a store and trying to sift through all the swimsuits on a rack. The options are either skimpy and impractical or unflattering and boring. It’s literally one of my least favorite things to do. I prefer to order online and try on in the comfort of my own home. Plus, as a 50+ year old woman I want to wear a swim suit that makes me feel like the best version of myself. I want to feel sexy, but not overexposed. Comfortable, but not invisible.

Are you with me??? Let’s discuss some brands that work for us midlife babes plus the retailers where you can find them.

My Favorite Places To Buy Swimsuits Online

Everything But Water:

With over 35 years as the preemintent resort retailers, Everything But Water provides not only a fabulous collection of swimwear but an entire vacation wardrobe from sun dresses and carry-alls that take you from beach to street. BECCA is a favorite brand of mine…I just adore their flattering silhouettes and crochet fabrications. I’m literally obsessed with this Black Crochet One Piece.

Boston Proper:

I always find the most beautiful swimsuits and cover ups at Boston Proper. Designed with the woman over 40 in mind, with the top trends every season, Boston Proper is always a go-to. Prints are huge for the season and I’m loving this Floral One-Piece and matching Palazzo Pant. Be sure and check out the Swim Sense Collection …incredibly flattering for 40+ women.

Change of Scenery:

I recently discovered this amazing brand on instagram and immediately fell in love. Change of Scenery is a brand that prioritizes high quality fabric, flawless fit and thoughtful design. Founded by a woman who was the Design Director of Ready-to-Wear and Swimwear for iconic brands such as Kate Spade, Shoshanna, and Milly, she wanted sophisticated, tasteful, and uncomplicated pieces and could not find them: Breezy dresses you can throw on between making breakfast for the family and checking email and swimwear that makes you feel excited to head to the pool or off to the beach with friends.

CODE: MEGANS10 saves at Change of Scenery.

Cabana Life:

I’ve talked about Cabana Life several times on my blog because all of their fabrics are made with UPF 50+ sun safe material. The designs, fabrics and silhouettes are super flattering and I love the fun prints.

CODE: TRULYMEGAN20 saves 20% on all full priced items at Cabana Life.

Neiman Marcus always has beautiful swimwear and cover- ups featuring some of my favorite brands for women over 40. Gottex, Sea Level Swim, and Miracle Suit are just a few that I recommend checking out.
