Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Always Buy Designer Swimwear

Ladies it's time to get your bikini drawer right! We're letting you in on the top 5 reasons why you should buy designer swimwear over your average or below average bikinis from Forever21 or Zaful. We know you've seen those bikini haul review videos on YouTube and thought to yourself "should I try that out?". The answer, bikini addicts is absolutely not. And here are the exact reasons as to why you should always buy designer swimwear:

1. Quality 

This should be your motto to live by "quality over quantity". Luxury designer bikinis are quality crafted pieces of swimwear that were created with the finest lycra available globally. Designers source their lycra or swimwear material meticulously ensuring that it has certain features such as four way stretch or properly resists degradation from chlorinated water. Haven't you ever wondered how a bikini holds it's shape or how the color doesn't fade in the sun? It's all in the material. Take a look at the material used to make Target or Forever21 swimsuits before you think about buying one. There's a reason why they only last you a few wears, because their designed with the cheapest spandex or lycra that's usually sourced from China and feels like plastic instead of the soft, buttery feel of quality lycra.

2. Better Investment

If you're living by the motto we mentioned above, this is a no-brainer. Quality designer swimwear was designed to last. That means you get to re-wear your bikinis over and over again instead of just that one time that you wore your SHEIN bikini and it fell apart. Yes, you are spending more money but it's an investment in your bikini drawer that will last you a lifetime. Stop wasting your money on those cheap swimsuits and think about what your money is worth to you. How hard did you have to work for it? Would you just throw it away? Because that's what you're doing buying cheap swimwear ladies. Invest your money in things that last!

3. Better Fit

Since you're buying a quality swimsuit and it's made with quality materials, you're going to get a way better fit than you would with a cheap bikini. Designer swimwear hugs your body in all the right places by properly stretching over your curves and shaping to your body's movements. This is that four-way stretch feature that we discussed earlier and it's a game changer. Say goodbye to the bikini sag that you experience wearing cheap lycra. A quality designed bikini will hold its shape and hug your body wear after wear. 

4. Supporting Boss Babes

Designer swimwear is called 'designer' for a reason. It's crafted just like an art form from actual designers with a vision. Think about Gucci or Celine - it's the same concept in the swimwear industry and by buying luxury designer bikinis you're supporting the boss babe designers behind the brands. When you decide to shop cheap you're actually buying knockoff products that were stolen and mass produced in large factories in China. Think a little bit about where your loyalty lies when you make your next bikini purchase. As avid swimwear lovers, we hope that bikini consumers will make the right choice to support authentic brands.

5. Style Is Everything

Let's be honest, style is everything. Getting dressed everyday is a direct reflection of your personal style and your swimwear choices are a part of that. Be true to your own personal style and if that's designer swimwear than totally rock it! Be the girl on the beach that every other girl is secretly envying for rocking a totally cute swimsuit and owning it. With style comes confidence, and we can almost guarantee that when you're wearing a designer swimsuit you'll feel 100% more confident than you will in a knockoff one.

    I used to buy my swimwear from Zaful and it’s horrible. I won’t go cheap ever again. Designer definitely lasts and is worth it.
