Year Round Resort Swimwear

While proper resort clothing for the whole family and a great collection of resort gear is necessary for a stylish and memorable vacation, the true essential of a trip to a beautiful oceanside resort is a swimsuit, of course! You can’t enjoy the crystal clear water without the perfect, form-flattering collection of swimwear. There are countless brands of swimwear on the market today, but they aren’t all created equal, so we’ve rounded up some of the highest quality, family-friendly, and aesthetically pleasing swimwear options that we personally love and wear every time we’re resort-vacationing.

Echo Design

The folks at Echo Design have been creating luxurious products for the last 90 years, including some of the most gorgeous bathing suits and cover-ups that we’ve laid our eyes on. Their belief in quality craftsmanship, inspired design, and the transformative power of beauty never comes more alive than when selecting swimwear comparative to the natural beauty of the ocean.

It doesn’t get more classic than the Solid Scoop Halter Bikini Set. This simple design has a bit sportier flare and is great for moms chasing kids on the beach or for those who don’t like to skimp around in string bikinis, but still want to maintain a level of sexiness. Available in an array of solid color options, with a UPF 50+ protective coating and abrasion-resistant fabric, be sure this is the first swimsuit you pack in your carry-on!

Smart & Sexy

Swimsuit shopping for most women ranks up there with dentist appointments and DMV visits. Between the harsh lighting in dressing rooms, astronomical prices for tiny pieces of fabric, and finding a suit that flatters your real body, swimsuit shopping can be downright stressful. Thanks to Smart & Sexy, shopping for swimwear this season can actually be fun, for both your body and your wallet. With pieces that are designed for normal woman bodies, from slim to plus-sized, Smart & Sexy provides you with high-quality, fashionable, and functional swimwear that doesn’t come with a high price tag.

For those of us who need a bit of a boost, Smart & Sexy’s extreme push-up halter will make you turn heads at the pool this summer. With bra sizing for the best fit, underwire for maximum support, and lots of colors and designs to choose from, this $16 bikini top gives you major bang for your buck.
Grab a matching asymmetrical side tie bottom for your push-up halter and bring a unique glamorous look to your swimwear wardrobe. This swim bottom ties at one side for a custom, perfect fit and provides medium coverage in the back so you can still be confident without baring all.    

Smart & Sexy’s convertible bandeau top gives you two suits in one for a mere $16! If that doesn’t make you want to skip along the beach, then we don’t know what will. This lightly lined, underwire bikini top gives you greater coverage and support while also allowing you to tie the straps behind you when sunbathing gets serious. 
The ruched back swim bottom is a versatile piece that can be worn with most any bikini top. With medium seat coverage, and an unexpected back ruching detail that provides a fun and flirty look that also prevents riding up, you can easily buy more than one of these bottoms and be set all summer.

For moments when you need a break from flaunting it, toss on Smart & Sexy’s chiffon flutter cover-up over your swimsuit. The sheer fabric, comfortable elastic waistband, and subtle rhinestones around the neckline make this cover-up simple, yet sexy. 


Fashion designer Pily Queipo started PilyQ as an apparel company designed to help women love themselves and their lives, by creating high-quality, comfortable, and European inspired swim and resort wear. With gorgeous fabrics hailing from beautiful Barcelona, you can be guaranteed to find a swimsuit or cover-up that fits you fabulously and lasts you longer than one season.

The charming Tanzania Reversible Seamless Wave Bikini, with its feminine wavy edges and classic style is actually two swimsuits in one, giving you more bang for your buck. With a solid soft blue on one side and a modern zebra print on the other, you will love the versatility this high-quality suit offers.   

The stunning Patara Diamond Bustier Bandeau Bikini will definitely turn heads as you stroll along the white sands, and with good reason. The molded underwire cups with side boning for extra support come with a removable halter strap that essentially makes this bikini two-in-one as well. The side and top rear ruching on the bikini bottoms give a subtle detail to this already beautifully designed suit. With a matching cover-up that flows effortlessly in the ocean breeze, this is the ultimate resort swimwear combination.

PilyQ’s Black Gold Hampton Dress is perfect for post-sunbathing or seafood eating. Use as a swimsuit cover-up or as a casual resort dress due to its versatile, neutral design. With a high neckline and a tie detail at the waistline for a custom fit, this dress is certainly a stunner!

The trend this summer is the wrap around bikini top, and Yandy has the best looking one for a mere twenty bucks! The Totally Strapped Bikini is a halter top with stretchy wrap around bands that tie in the back, that not only provides you with a secure custom fit, but looks incredibly stylish and sexy. Pair the top with the matching bottom, that has dual side straps and a cheeky cut back for a totally strappy swimwear look.

In a wide selection of super bright beach colors, the Pool Party Honey Bikini is another swimsuit that loves the straps. Triple halter straps that tie in the back offer a unique and trendy look up top, while the ultra cut-out bottoms give you a Brazilian design that bares all!

Yandy’s Corset Back Swimsuit brings the ultimate in sexy sophistication as well as versatility. With the option of wearing as a halter or a bandeau, you have two different looks instantly. With subtle ruching on the top and the bottom, you’re guaranteed a flattering fit. The most unique feature of this suit is the corset back that laces up and brings an edgy feel to a classic bikini.

For those who spend their time on the beach in a more active way, a modest swimsuit is in order, to keep things where they belong while you’re spiking the volleyball or riding the surf. The Sporty Red Two-Piece Swimsuit is perfect for more coverage, while still allowing you to show off your body that you’ve worked so hard for. Featuring a racer back top with front zipper, and a classic low-rise brief, all with black accents, this swimsuit can take whatever you throw at it. 

Be ready to hit the pool, the ocean, the lazy river, or even the spa in perfect swimwear style and chic comfort!
