Victoria’s Secret recently announced that it’s phasing out its swimwear.

And while you’re covered for this season, it may leave you wondering: Where should you shop for women’s swimsuits once the styles at Victoria’s Secret run dry?

Have no fear, we found seven great alternatives.

Forever 21

From bikinis and one-pieces to cover-ups and flip-flops, Forever 21 has a huge selection of stylish swimwear. Plus, some tops and bottoms cost less than $10 apiece. The apparel and accessory store offers free shipping on orders over $50.

Abercrombie & Fitch

Surf’s up at Abercrombie & Fitch, where there’s a swimsuit style for every taste. Tops and bottoms are sold separately, so shoppers can mix and match to create their own looks. The store’s also a one-stop shop for cover-ups and towels.

American Eagle

Personalize your shopping at American Eagle. Swimwear is divided by trend and type, and there’s even a bikini mix-and-match tool where you can essentially design your own suit and see how it’ll look. Complete your look with the store’s selection of sunglasses, flip-flops and beach totes. Plus, for a limited time, get free shipping on all orders with the purchase of one or more AEO or Aerie swimwear items.

Keep your beach style on point with the help of Venus. The store’s vast selection of swimwear is categorized by the latest trends. You’ll find an assortment of tankinis, halter tops, swim wraps and more. Use code FS2016 at checkout to score free shipping on orders over $100.


PacSun makes snagging your perfect suit simple, especially if you know just what you’re looking for. Refine your search by top, bottom, one-piece or cover-up, then get even more specific with filters for crop tops, side-tie bottoms, hipster bottoms and more. Plus, get free shipping over $50 or pay a $5 flat rate for orders under $50.


If designer beachwear is your thing, head over to the swimwear and cover-up section at Dillard’s. In addition to the sheer volume of products, the store sells bikinis and swimsuits from big-name labels like Betsey Johnson, Kate Spade New York, Michael Kors and Jessica Simpson.


Lululemon is known for its yoga apparel, but the retailer is also a perfect fit for those who like to exercise in the water. While the selection isn’t huge, the store has a handful of quality swim-suitable apparel, including tops, bottoms and rash guards. Standard shipping is free.

In the meantime

Victoria’s Secret swim styles aren’t history just yet. You can stock up on sale-priced swim essentials now before they’re gone. We’re currently seeing up to 60% off hundreds of styles online in the swim section.

And before you buy swimwear from any store, always consult the retailer’s return policy (it may take some combing through fine print on your part). In some instances, swim styles are final sale.
