summer is not over enough Again. And if you missed the massive Summersalt sale earlier this summer, you’re in luck. Starting August 16, the size-inclusive swimwear brand has its the biggest sale ever on the whole site. You can save up to 60% on some of our favorite Summersalt suits, which are made with recycled polyamide fabric and include a size range of 0-24.
That means you can find the Sidestroke swimsuit that’s right for everyone—it’s always on my beach packing list—for as low as $38 in select colors and sizes. Her comfy loungewear and cover-ups are also on sale.
Here are some additional details:
- Free shipping is available on US domestic orders of $250 and over
- No code is needed
- The entire site is included in the sale, except for certain third-party partnerships like Diane von Furstenberg’s limited-edition prints.
- All items are final sale, exchanges are allowed if something is not the correct size. (I found its size and fit guide, based on 1.5 million body measurements of 10,000 women, to be very accurate.)
Summersalt’s Endless Summer Sale runs until August 31st, but I found during its last sale some things sold out quickly. So it’s best to grab these deals while you can. Shop the whole sale on summersalt.comor keep scrolling to see the picks selected by the AFAR team.
The Sidestroke swimsuit
This swimsuit is one of Summersalt’s bestsellers for good reason. If you scroll through even a few pages of the over 6,000 positive reviews, you’ll notice a trend. It looks good – and feels good – on virtually everyone. Made with Summersalt’s signature compression fabric, this one-piece suit provides support in my midsection while providing full coverage on my, uh, rear section so I don’t constantly pull the wedges during a swim. The lovely one-shoulder design is modest without coming off matronly.
I purchased the Sidestroke in the “Deep Sea, Hydrangea, and White Sand” colorway in May 2021. Over the past 15 months, I’ve worn it everywhere from Necker Island in the BVI to Iceland’s Blue Lagoon and at the hot springs of Grutas Tolantongo in the north of Mexico City. Even though the laundry instructions recommend hand washing and line drying, I’ve tossed it in a cold wash cycle several times and it still looks brand new.
Side swimming gathered at the shoulder and at the bow
As a C cup, I find the original Sidestroke suit to provide good support in the bust area. However, some people with larger busts have pointed out in reviews that they don’t find it supportive enough as it lacks cups due to the diagonal seam in the design. If you prefer a costume with sewn-on cups, the Bow-Shoulder Ruched Sidestroke comes with these as well as an oversized bow on the shoulder for a touch of old Hollywood glamour.
The ribbed waistband backflip
“I love the retro 70s design of the Ribbed Waistband Backflip, a piece that I feel both fashionable and confident in,” says Jessie Beck, Senior Director, SEO and Video at AFAR. “The straps aren’t adjustable, but that hasn’t been a problem so far: they fit snugly and stay in place even when I’m swimming or moving around actively.”
