Swimwear Issue: Edmonton's Best for Bikinis

You’ll be back on the beach before you know it (or lounging pool side at one of Edmonton’s finest outdoor pools).

To flaunt your poolside perfection, get a new swimsuit at one of Edmonton’s best swimwear shops.

Offshores Swim (32 Commerce Place - 10150 Jasper Avenue, 780.757.1915, offshores.ca, Facebook)
Offshores stocks bombshell bikinis and cover-ups worthy of hotspots from Ibiza to Ipanema. The store dishes high glamour with swimwear collections from Vitamin A, Betsey Johnson, Luli Fama and New York’s Carmen Marc Valco. The cover-ups and accessories are equally covetable and essential to completing your beach chic look.

Sublime Swim & Sunwear (335 140 St. Albert Trail, 780.460.0016, sublimeswin.com)
You’ll find a swimsuit style you love with Sublime’s selection of low-waist, full-bottom, halter, bandeau and more bikini separates that actually flatter your figure. Sublime Swimwear stocks over 50 brands including its best selling Australia Seafolly, Roxy and Billabong labels. Prefer a one-piece? Try the ever-popular miracle suit to ‘drop’ 10 lbs.

Swimwear Etc. (Southgate Mall, Kingsway Mall, West Edmonton Mall, swimwearetc.ca)
Mix-and-match prints from Hurley, Roxy and Billabong or choose a sophisticated Baku one-piece. Rather be swimming laps than lounging poolside? Get a Speedo or TYR. And for the men – a line-up of board shorts, trunks and sports wear.

Surfco (8882 170 Street, West Edmonton Mall, 780.424.5464)
Take a plunge with swimsuits designed to stay in place while you break waves. Brands included Rip Curl, Reef or Billabong, and an impressive collection of board shorts for gals. For the more glitzy crowd, try a bikini by Sauvage or a classic one-piece by Calvin Klein.

Dawn's Bra-Tique (10130 118 Street, 780-428-2727)
Bikini? You’re a size 6. On the bottom. Up top you’re a double-D cup. Dawn’s Bra-tique stocks cup-sized swimwear by Freya and Fantasie.

Make a splash with these suits at affordable prices: H&M, Old Navy and Joe Fresh.
