Listen, guys: we know a great swimsuit when we see one. Whether it's a cult-favorite $25 one-piece with over 1,600 five-star reviews on Amazon, or a bikini that actually supports the girls, we have a knack for scoping out grade-A bathing suits (and testing them in the Good Housekeeping Institute!).
However, it doesn't take an expert to see that Summersalt's best-selling Sidestroke one-shouldered swimsuit is amazing - the style literally sold out 25 times within its first year of sale. The waitlist for the suit is regularly filled with thousands of eager would-be buyers, and nearly 200 reviewers have given the suit a perfect 5 stars. Luckily, it's finally back in stock, just in time for the Fourth of July.
What makes this bathing suit so special? Summersalt is a direct-to-consumer swimwear company that offers "the best designer quality at the best price," which means that none of the suits will set you back more than $100. While Summersalt suits are not Amazon-cheap, they're also better-than-Amazon quality (sorry, it's true!). The company claims the UPF 50+fabric is five times stronger and has four times the compression of ordinary swimwear for a softer yet more durable suit (magic!). You can also expect a superior fit, thanks to 1.5 million body measurements taken from 10,000 women that inform the fit.
The Sidestroke is crazy popular because the brand claims it is built to move with you, but stays in place where you need it most. That means you won't get wedgies from taking a few steps, or have to avoid bending over for fear of indecent exposure. Reviewers say the claims are legit: "I like how comfortable I feel in it. I’m not constantly pulling and adjusting it," says one, while another raves, "I am never worried about a nip-slip in this suit."
Reviewers also say the style will have you shedding that security blanket towel: Its diagonal paneling is insanely flattering and the strong fabric is smoothing, yet "way more comfortable than the tummy squeezing Miraclesuits." This universally-flattering bathing suit comes in sizes 2 to 24 in over 9 colors with varying tush coverage, depending on your preference. Summersalt has also adapted the super-popular style into a bikini, too. Above are some of our favorite colors - good luck choosing just one!
