I’m A Fashion Editor, And These Are The 5 SKIMS Swim Items In My Cart

I’m planning vacays to match these bikinis.

I have officially joined the hordes of netizens getting stoked about the launch of SKIMS Swim. Say what you want about Kim Kardashian, but she knows how to create truly bomb products for all different body types. You simply cannot deny the power of SKIMS.

SKIMS Swim launches Friday, March 18. To give you some inspo for your own cart, I’ve scoped out the pieces I personally have to have.

We at Elite Daily only include products that have been independently selected by our editors. We may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.

Swim Sleeveless One Piece

I love a swimsuit that manages to be alluring without exposing my whole body and that I don’t have to worry about losing while bodysurfing. This one-piece suit is giving Bond girl and chest support and I am *here* for it.

Swim Tank Bikini Top

There’s something incredibly inviting about a square cut neckline and it’s rather rare to see them in swimwear. Once I saw this bikini top on Kim, my mind was made up — it’s being added to my online shopping cart ASAP.

Swim Long Sleeve One Piece Swimsuit

Sleeves at the beach are a whole vibe. This one-piece swimsuit also features a long back zipper — which has some definite sporty yet flirty appeal — and an extra-long branded zipper pull. Thoughtful details that elevate a look? Yes, please.

Swim Plunge Bikini Top

One thing I’ve noticed about the whole SKIMS Swim line is that these are elevated basics: simple silhouettes given a fashion injection from thoughtful detailing. Case in point: the rubberized logo and narrowing strap length on this plunging bikini top.

Swim T-Shirt

You know how you have a favorite T-shirt that’s simple and cool and goes with everything? Now your favorite T-shirt comes in bikini top flavor. The crew cut neckline is a yes for me.


SKIMS Swim is available on Friday, March 18, exclusively on Leading up to the launch, you can explore all the items in the collection and see each piece on models with a range of body shapes and sizes on the website.
