Guide: How to Pack Your Favorite Swimsuits Properly

Bring several suits, with one in your carry-on.

Why not bring all of your alternatives on vacation if you're lucky enough to have a drawer full of lovely swimsuits? You never know if you'll be in the mood for a strappy bikini, floral tankini, or sassy one-piece, so bring plenty of options. You'll be glad you took the time to do so! Aside from fashion trends, packing various swimsuits is also practical. Have you ever had to wiggle your way into a dripping wet swimsuit? The word "comfortable" isn't the first to come to mind. You can hang your daily beach suit out to dry while wearing another suit for nighttime hot-tubbing if you have extra swimsuits. Don't forget to bring a swimsuit with you in your carry-on bag. If your checked suitcase is missing, you won't have to lay by the pool in your airport clothing.

Tops should be stacked with molded cups.

Molded cups provide additional support and enhance your bust, so keeping them in good shape when traveling is critical. Stack molded-cup swimsuit tops on top of one another in your baggage to save them from getting destroyed. Furthermore, packing them this way saves space - and who doesn't want additional room for coverups, shoes, and accessories?

Clean your suits with a travel-size delicate or lingerie soap.

Over the course of your vacation, your swimwear will be exposed to everything: chlorine, seawater, sand, sunscreen, and perhaps even a splash of spilled pineapple margarita (hey, no judgment here). Don't put off cleaning your favorite bikinis until you get home! Bring a small bottle of delicate wash or lingerie soap with you so you may hand-wash your suits in your hotel room. The longer those substances and chemicals are allowed to linger on your suit, the more damage they can cause to the elastic, color, and fabric.

Bring wet swimwear in empty plastic bags.

While you don't want to miss out on a last-minute swim before flying home, you also don't want to cram a sopping wet swimsuit between your regular clothing. To travel wet swimsuits without getting seawater or chlorine on the rest of your apparel, keep a few gallon-sized plastic bags in your luggage. Just make sure to swiftly unpack these plastic bags when you arrive home, so your swimwear doesn't grow musty or moldy!

Bring a variety of items that you can mix and combine.

Do you have a limited amount of luggage space? Just carry those clothes that you can mix and match if you can't bring every swimsuit you want. Black bikini bottoms, for example, can be combined with a wide range of printed and solid-colored bikini and tankini tops. For an evening out, a trendy one-piece can double as a bodysuit. Hiking shorts can be made from swim shorts. 

Think beyond the box and pack smartly! With a little practice and these baggage packing recommendations, you'll be packing swimwear like the most seasoned travelers. It's now time to let your wanderlust loose. Start your next vacation off right with new swimwear and a new style. Swimwear in your travel bag should be comfortable, enjoyable, and limited to only a few items.

Unfortunately, your wardrobe either has too many or too few options, and none of them appear very enticing for a fun beach vacation.

If you're looking for a couple of new swimsuits, I SHINE365 has a great range for you to choose from.

In Your Travel Bag: The Swimwear You'll Need

The Swimwear You'll Need

The Swimwear You'll Need

Swimwear: Underwired

Finding a bikini top that fits right isn't always simple for big-busted women. Unfortunately, many bikinis and one-piece swimsuits only come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. However, fantastic underwired and bra-sized swimwear has been developed in recent years.

Women no longer have to be concerned about leakage or too-tight bikini tops. You may now get a bikini top or one-piece swimsuit in your bra size — larger sizes are also available.

Swimwear: Reversible 

Unfortunately, when packing your suitcase for a trip, you must weigh which items are essential and which are not. You know you can't bring five different swimsuits, but wearing the same two bikinis for the whole of your trip isn't tempting. Investing in reversible swimwear is a simple solution. You can make ten or more attractive swimsuits for your vacations by mixing and matching the bikini tops and bottoms from just two reversible bikinis. Is there a more beautiful creation than this?

Swimwear: Ruffles

Ruffles add a touch of femininity to a one-piece suit that might otherwise be plain. They're stylish and fun, and they're ideal for women who enjoy full-coverage swimsuits. Ruffles are particularly great for curvy and plus-sized women who don't want to wear a two-piece. Ruffles are fantastic for disguising those extra curves and making you feel absolutely feminine.

Swimwear: Tankini

Tankinis are perfect for more vigorous beach activities like surfing, volleyball, and scuba diving. While the tankini is similar to the one-piece, it is more playful and exciting, and you won't have to strip down to your underwear just to use the restroom. Yes, I'm sure we've all experienced that awkward moment in the beach restroom, which is why the one-piece is a less popular swimsuit option for ladies. On the other hand, the tankini gives the coverage of a one-piece without the drawbacks.

The best part is that, like the bikini, you can mix and match (or even reverse) your tops and bottoms, which is ideal when packing space is limited.
