Make no mistake: Despite what the weather channel may say, spring has sprung, and pool season has begun. In Las Vegas, what you wear at resort pools and dayclubs is just as important as what you wear to experience the nightlife. That bikini of yours may have been cute in the days of yore, but now that its elastic is shot and the fabric is pilling, it’s time to donate and replace it with something contemporary and new, and Vegas is the best place to do that. So take notes and book a spray tan – these are the best places to shop for swimwear during your Las Vegas vacation.
J.Crew at Las Vegas North Premium Outlets
A long-standing favorite among swimwear shoppers, what J.Crew fans love about the brand’s swimsuits is that they are durable, come in a wide range of sizes, and feature silhouettes and colors that are classic. If what you’re looking for is something simple yet stylish, then J.Crew swimsuits are for you. Opt for snazzy stripes or romantic ruffles to make an outstanding impression that takes you beyond basic.
Everything But Water at Fashion Show Mall
This sweet boutique literally has everything you need for poolside fun but water. Selection varies in brands and price range. The budget-conscious are sure to find something pretty that doesn’t break the bank, but for those with loose purse strings, know that you will find plenty of luxe swimwear to compete with any real housewife. Keep an eye out for blocked-color styles to help you steal the poolside scene.
Bikini Bay and Original Penguin at Miracle Mile Shops and Planet Hollywood
At Bikini Bay, not only will you discover swimwear in petite and plus sizes, but the boutique also carries chlorine-resistant items, too. When you’re soaking in a pool jam-packed with revelers, it’s great to know the chlorine is there to keep things sanitized, but boy can it wreak havoc on your swimming attire. Knowing you can pick up something sexy and chlorine-resistant at Bikini Bay is a definite plus.
Men won’t be left out of the outdoor fashion fun when they partake in a spree at Original Penguin. A brand that is valued for its dapper styles, Original Penguin’s swim trunks are offered in both bright colors or whimsical prints. Check out the reversible swim short, which gives you two looks for one.
Molly Brown’s Swimwear at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
Shoppers looking for California style in the middle of Sin City can find it at Molly Brown’s Swimwear. Stocked with the hippest, freshest and sexiest cuts, Molly Brown’s has an impressive collection of Vitamin A swimwear, which is produced sustainably from recycled nylon.
