What to Look for in Honeymoon Swimwear
Whether the two of are lounging on the deck of your overwater bungalow or jetskiing across the waves, you'll want an assortment of suits that work for all possible honeymoon scenarios. We recommend bringing three, four, five (or more—we don't judge!) that can be worn for different purposes and activities. A stylish bikini with chain or ruffle detail, like Cupshe Bandeau Bikini, may be great for that Insta pic with your S.O. or lounging by the pool. A sporty one piece, like Gooseberry One Piece Tank, will probably be more practical for seaside adventures.
Regardless of the suits you decide to pack in your suitcase, it's important to opt for swimwear that makes you feel the very best version of yourself—whether that be sexy, flirty, or stylish. Be mindful of cuts and silhouettes that accentuate the areas you want to show off.
Equally noteworthy, pack at least one or two suits that provide optimal comfort. This will allow you to soak up the little moments and focus on enjoying your once-in-a-lifetime trip with your new spouse.
What are the most flattering swimwear silhouettes?
Certain styles and silhouettes like high-waisted/high-cut bikini bottoms, one pieces with ruching, and deep V-necklines are generally flattering on a wide range of body shapes and sizes. We like how Sauipe Eve One Piece combines both ruching and a plunging neckline.
Do I have to wear white swimwear on my honeymoon?
Definitely not! While many brides may choose to wear swimsuits in bridal white, others may prefer to wear more colorful options—it’s completely up to you! Searching for something a little more statement-making? Opt for swimwear in soft pastel hues or kick it up a notch with pieces in vibrant colors and eye-catching prints. The Gemma Wrap One Piece from Frankie's Bikinis is perfect for the flirtatious bride.
What swimwear is best for activities like snorkeling or water sports?
Typically, one pieces, rash guard tops, and any secure swimwear that can handle the resistance of the water are best for water sports and active excursions. We like how Gigi C Rash Guard is stylish but still protects your skin from the sun and wave.
