I was searching the internet for bathing suits that were a balance of trendy, high quality, and had actual coverage and structure. I stumbled upon Summersalt after regularly seeing their social media ads and promotions of a large sale. The selection is actually quite vast in terms of colors, styles, and I especially love that you can search by bottom coverage (I was seeking moderate instead of the minimal). While most of the pieces in my opinion are a bit modest, I found an epic two piece in a gorgeous copper color that was on sale. Their sizes took a little to think through because instead of small, medium, etc. they do it by 2, 4, etc. A one piece I ordered I found to be too modest and not cut high enough and sought to return, but my only option was a store credit, which was perfectly fine because they carry a wide, decent assortment of coverups, and other apparel. The brand is refreshing too in terms of touting that their pieces are constructed after taking thousands of real women’s measurements. I feel they are a differentiator in the swimsuit space and their product line is timeless and high quality, would definitely recommend trying—just be sure to read if your item is returnable!
Summersalt has cute bathing suits at a reasonable price point. I like that you can mix and match tops and bottoms. They have lots of different styles and prints and I can always find things here that I like. I've had my bathing suits for 3 years and they're holding up well.
The suit I have is from a while ago so is unfortunately no longer available, but it felt like such an elevated one-piece that doesn't look too sporty. It has a flattering deep v, square back, and high-cut leg which I love. I found it easy to find my right size. It's really comfortable, and I've even worn the one-piece as a bodysuit. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the material just isn't as buttery soft as some other brands I've found (like left on friday).

Quality clothes, with good fabric. I bought a lovely dress here with ribbed cotton and large ribbons on the shoulder. Worth it!
A friend of mine had this suit and I knew I wanted it as it reminded me of 1990s gymnastics leotards - in a good way. It’s got great coverage and the back cut out it cute. The asymmetrical cut prevents it from being a classic mom bather. But it otherwise does the job: full behind coverage, high asymmetrical neck, can do shocking things like bend and stretch without a public indecency moment. Only beef - only - is I ordered the tall as long torso gal and find some bunching or gaping along the back.
Overall, I really love my Summersalt swimsuit. It's held up really well over the course of at least 3 summers. I live near the ocean and my neighbor has a pool, so I am frequently outside and in the sun and water. I am also religious about wearing sunscreen. So my swimsuit has seen a lot of elements that could wear it out and discolor it (oils, lotions, chlorine, the sunshine, etc). Yet, to date, it's continued to look as good as it did when I got it! With that said, the reason I docked 1 star is because I don't feel like the sizing is consistent across the swimwear. I've tried numerous other styles of suits from their website, but have returned every single one. I wish that there was a way to make the fit more consistent. However, if you're looking for swimwear that will hold up over time and won't leave you feeling like everything is hanging out everywhere, you should give them a try!
beautiful and reasonable pricing - my wife's fav go to
I own the one shoulder one piece in navy. I love the quality and fit!
I purchased some loungewear from Summersalt, which I know is not their bread and butter (I think of them as a swimwear brand!). The price was right so I went for it on a matching sweater and sweater pant set. Everything ran a little large, was final sale, and the price was absolutely right. So far it's all held up well. Most importantly, I had an issue with my order and customer care was beyond helpful-- they were really amazing. This is the kind of company I want to buy from, so I'd definitely consider ordering swimwear in the future.
Did not like the fabric at all, nor the embedded nipple pads. Stodgy cuts.
