Are you planning a winter getaway to a warm climate resort? If so, you'll want to make sure you have a variety of swimsuits to choose from. Not only will it make your vacation more enjoyable, but having multiple options will also ensure that you look and feel your best in every photo. Jonatan Rosdahl of recommends the following number of suits per day depending on the length of your vacation:

Vacation Swimsuits
Weekend 1-2
1 week’s vacation 3-4
2 week’s vacation 5-7
7-day cruise  4
5-day cruise 3

A cruise calls for more swimsuits because you'll be in saltwater and the pool in the same day, and you'll have more photo ops when you're in a dry bathing suit as well. This also applies if you're staying at a seaside resort.


Which swimsuits should you take on your next resort vacation? Let's talk about it, and make sure you have options that express your style and confidence. We'll also cover what to look for in a quality resort wear swimsuit and how you can make the most of your swimwear by choosing pieces you can wear as eveningwear.

Why You Need Multiple Swimsuits

On a resort or cruise vacation, having a variety of swimsuits is crucial. You need options for different activities! Volleyball and surfing call for flexibility. If you're tanning on the beach you may want to maximize skin exposure. And if you're swimming you want something sleek and simple. But you'll also want to have options for different moods and styles.

Plus, having multiple swimsuits means that you can rotate them and allow them to dry properly, which will help prolong their life and maximize your options during your precious vacation time.

What to Look for in a Quality Resort Wear Swimsuit

When shopping for a swimsuit, it's important to look for certain signs of quality. First, make sure the swimsuit is fully lined and has a good fit. This will ensure that you're comfortable and that the swimsuit won't become transparent when wet.

Next, look for a swimsuit that is made with high-quality materials. Most swimwear is made with fabrics that are designed to withstand the sun, saltwater, and chlorine. The best also use colors and prints that are designed to withstand fading.

Finally, look for a swimsuit that has a good amount of stretch. This will ensure that the swimsuit will move with you and won't become restrictive when you're swimming or doing other activities.

When it comes to choosing a swimwear brand, SHEDOES stands out for our high-quality materials and stylish designs. These designer swimsuits are made to last and communicate your sense of style with attitudes that match your mood, whether you're feeling bold, playful, sophisticated, sexy, or serene.

Making the Most of Your Swimwear as Eveningwear

Not all swimwear is built for, or refined enough for, the challenge of doubling as eveningwear. But if you simply keep the possibility in mind when you're shopping, you can easily create a chic and sophisticated look that's perfect for a dinner or a night out.

If it's your first time, try pairing a one-piece swimsuit with a long skirt or wide-legged pants. A jacket or shrug can transform it into a formal top. You can also add a statement necklace or earrings to complete the look. Here's The Edge paired with a leaf-print skirt.

Some designer swimwear for women comes with accessories already perfect for an evening out. Our signature swimsuit The Audrey comes with an elegant formal cowl.

For a slightly more casual look, try pairing a bikini with a lightweight cardigan or close-fitting jacket. You can also add a pair of sandals or wedges to complete the look.

Here's an example of The Chic with a pink jacket and leather pants at New York Fashion Week.
