6 Minimalist Swimwear Options to Shop For

Maybe your home is outfitted from top to bottom with neutral tones, clutter-free corners, and a few purposefully-placed pieces of furniture. Or perhaps your lifestyle is a passionate pursuit of simplicity, one that actively eliminates the extraneous and makes room for only the must-haves. 

Whatever the case may be, a strong minimalist spirit is usually at the core of most decisions you make—even the seemingly small ones like what fashion to wear in the sand and sun. 

That’s right—your swimwear can be a reflection of your less-is-more mantra, too. Instead of bikinis or beach vacation essentials with bold prints and even bolder color palettes, you might prefer to slip into an unfussy fit—one that’s sleek, timeless, and endlessly pairable. 

Fortunately, we’ve pared down your shopping list to make searching for minimalist swimwear just as simple as your preferred aesthetic. Here are six minimalist bathing suit options to keep you looking and feeling your best on beach days.

The Classic One-Piece

Hey there, beach babe. Let us introduce you to one of our oldest friends—meet the one-piece. You might even know her already. She's always in style on the seaside, lake, or pool. It’s that classic form-meets-function, pull-on bathing suit that covers just enough but never too much. 

This category of swimwear is a versatile one, and the ideal blend between all-day comfort and head-turning style. Plus, it’s been strutting its stuff in all sorts of waterscapes since the 1920s, making it a tried-and-true staple for any warm-weather closet.1

#1 So Chic One-Pieces

For the minimalist shopper who’s looking to make a subtly sexy statement on the beach or boardwalk, look no further than So Chic one-pieces. 

These sophisticated, figure-hugging swimsuits might leave more to the imagination than a two-piece, but their fashion designs accentuate your natural shape, making you look and feel as sexy as you should. Plus, they come in a variety of earth-inspired colors and double-lined fabric materials.

Try these two on for size:

  • So Chic Plunge One-Piece – This plunge style sexy one-piece swimsuit features a bust-inclusive mono V wire in the front and a customizable fit thanks to its adjustable neck and back ties. However, knowing how to wash a bathing suit can affect the fit of this one piece, so be careful to wash with care. Wear it in a rum-colored hue while you sip down a daiquiri, or slip into lilac for a look that’s just as soft as the sand beneath your toes. 
  • So Chic One-Piece Storm – This must-have one-piece trades frills for simplicity, and busy prints for a flattering fit with clean lines . It features a plunging neckline and a high, cheeky cut that emphasizes your body type—not to mention, adjustable shoulder straps and gold swim hardware.

Better-Than-Basic Bikinis

Sometimes a one-piece just won't cut it. Maybe you’re looking for a stylish, minimalist bikini bathing suit. You know the one—it hits all the right spots for your body type, allows room for lots of tanning (with sunscreen of course), and is poised for maximum comfort and wearability.

Lucky for you, there’s more than just one. Below you’ll find a whole boat-load of better-than-basic bikinis that’ll keep you frolicking in comfort and in summer style from sunup to sundown. 

#2 So Chic Bikinis and Bottoms

The So Chic collection wouldn’t be complete without bikinis—and this time, we’re pairing modern minimalism with a flattering, skin-flaunting form.

Several of these two-piece options feature: 

  • Adjustable strings
  • Cheek peeks galore
  • Simple, sleek designs

Whether you’re lounging by the pool with a romance read, catching waves with your fellow mermaids, or chasing waterfalls, these summer styles allow you to carry minimalist vibes with you wherever you go:

  • So Chic Halterneck Triangle Top – The beachier equivalent to a little black dress, this Halterneck Triangle top comes with neck and back ties, giving you the very best in terms of comfort and versatility.
  • So Chic Plunge Bikini Top – Featuring underwired cups for sculpting and an added boost, this mono-wire V plunge creates a bare, natural look that’s suitable for both large or small busts.
  • So Chic Top – For another clean, beautifully-bare look, try this wireless top. It’s got adjustable straps and a back tie to accommodate busts of all shapes and sizes, so you never have to worry how should a bathing suit fit.
  • So Chic Side Tie Bottom – For bare-bottomed beach days, opt for this side-tying number. Fall in love with its low-rise front, adjustable booty coverage, and customizable ties—perfect for any size. 
  • So Chic Cheeky Briefs Bottom – Accentuate your one-of-a-kind figure with these mid-rise bottoms, featuring medium coverage and a classic, Brazilian-style cut.

Everything about them is meant to maximize comfort in whatever space you’re wearing it. With comfortable, breathable swim material, you’ll be ready for any water-saturated adventure that comes your way.

  • For You Coconut Crop – Can’t get enough crop tops? Neither can we. Wear this Crop Coconut top for a stroll through the sand, or pair it with high-rise denim shorts for a flirty night out. 
  • For You High Waist Bottom – Capture all sorts of beachy comfort with these hip-hugging, high-waisted bikini bottoms featuring a slightly cheeky cut. Coconut, caramel, rosebud, or cherry—choose your own color adventure. 

#4 Good Vibes Bikinis and Bottoms

  • 90s minimalist-inspired swimwear
  • Flirty prints
  • Low-key colors
  • Inclusive bust and waist sizes

Whether you’re off for a sunset swim or picnic by the lake, these bikini top styles and bikini bottom styles invite a touch of playfulness—without sacrificing that simple, clean look:

  • Good Vibes Triangle Print TopThis top practically lives and breathes the 90s. It comes in an adorable leopard print and boasts back and neckties for easy adjustment. 
  • Good Vibes Underwired Top – This balcony-style, underwired top is suitable for any bust size—a knockout choice for a chic, minimalist look. 
  • Good Vibes Side Tie Print Bottom – This is the could-be leopard-print counterpart of the aforementioned top. It boasts an adjustable tie on the side,  a cheeky bikini bottom, and a low-rise front.
  • Good Vibes Sculpting High Waist Bottom – If you’re more comfortable in an ultra-high waist bikini bottom, pair this sleek, sculpting option with a bandeau top of your choice.

#5 Resort Bikinis and Bottoms

Looking for a more classic, refined look for the yacht club or a poolside soiree? These Resort tops and bottoms are elegant and sexy, never giving up on style for comfort.

Plus, they come in beautiful neutral tones to complement any minimalist swimwear look:

  • Resort Triangle Top and Bottom – If you’re looking to make a slight shift from your go-to aesthetic, try adding a touch of barely-there texture. This ribbed triangle top with gold hardware is touchably soft and ideal for any bust size. Pair it with matching bikini bottoms to tie the look together seamlessly, and create an effortless design. 

#6 Mix-and-Match Tops and Bottoms

Just because your minimalist heart may sing at the sight of streamlined shapes and muted designs doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with mixing and matching. All of those aforementioned styles? Sure, they could go together, but that doesn’t always mean they should.

Remember, you’re the queen of your closet, and you get to make the sustainable swimsuit rules. 

To bring a bolder attitude to your swimwear selections—without overdoing it—ride the wave of these one-of-a-kind combinations: 

  • The pool party – Need something that looks good wet and dry? Try pairing the So Chic Plunge Bikini Top in a neutral color like cacao with Good Vibes Cheeky Bikini Bottoms in black or white.
  • The beach day – If you’ve ever lost a bandeau  top to the ocean, you know that form and function go hand in hand. To combat waves in style, try the For You High Waist Bottoms in rosebud alongside the Resort Triangle grey top.
  • The boat ‘n’ float – Time to laze out on the lake? Pair the leopard print Good Vibes Side Tie Bottom with the For You Crop Top in white for a relaxed fit.
  • The backyard suntan  – Want to flaunt as much skin as possible and minimize tan lines? The lilac So Chic Halterneck Triangle Top and a pair of chocolate Good Vibes Side Tie bottoms should do the trick.
