Are you ready to sit back and relax on your honeymoon? Your wedding day, of course, is a special day. But it’s also a busy, stressful one. Many couples look forward to the honeymoon, where they can relax without having to plan a single thing. Unfortunately, you still have to plan the honeymoon—and that includes clothing. Wherever you’re going for your honeymoon, we recommend bringing at least one swimsuit. Your hotel may have a pool or you may be traveling to a tropical paradise. So don’t forget to bring one of these stunning swimsuits for your honeymoon.
When choosing the perfect honeymoon swimsuit, you want to feel comfortable and confident, so it’s important to choose a ‘suit that fits your personal style. Some styles, like high-waisted bikini bottoms or ruching, are flattering on most people. And because it’s your honeymoon, we recommend adding a little drama—like an oversized bow or flattering cutouts. So we’ve gathered a variety of swimsuits for your honeymoon with a touch of flare to help you pick the perfect one.
1. Tie Side Swimming Costume
From: Ted Baker
This simple but stylish one-piece swimsuit is on the pricier side but it’s a worthwhile investment for newlywed life. The small side cutout with the accompanying bow adds just the right amount of drama. Plus, there’s a bow on the back of the shoulder strap, too! That makes it a timeless swimsuit that’s perfect for your honeymoon—and plenty of summers after.
2. Nyx Criss-Cross One Piece
From: OYE Swimwear
Another timeless swimsuit investment is the one piece from OYE Swimwear. It boasts a high-waist silhouette, which is flattering for most body types. And the semi-sheer, criss-cross details offer full coverage without compromising flirtiness. If you’re worried about being too warm on the beach—don’t! The open back detail will keep you cool.
3. Textured High-Waisted Bikini
This bikini set may look simple, but it has a lot to offer. For starters, it’s the perfect fit for a bride who doesn’t want a typical one-piece swimsuit—but doesn’t want an itsy bitsy bikini, either. The set offers medium coverage with a little cutout detail on the back of the bikini bottom. And as we’ve said before, it’s a high-waisted style, so it will be both flattering and comfortable! Plus if you want to get extra use out of it, mix and match with another set for plenty of swimsuits for your honeymoon.
4. Classy Retro One-Shoulder Swimsuit
Just look at the drama of this swimsuit! The shoulder ruffle offers a retro vibe, while the center cutout brings a touch of modern. And the soft, stretchy fabric makes it easy to wear and to wash. It’s the perfect honeymoon swimsuit if you’re looking to make a statement—or a splash—at your luxury retreat.
5. Macrame Bandeau One Piece
Ruching is another detail that flatters most body shapes, and this swimsuit has lots of ruching. The entire front is ruched to give a corset look and feel. (But we promise it’s more comfortable!) Plus, it comes with detachable straps, so you can choose whatever makes you the most comfortable. Personally, we love the subtle details in this one piece—you almost don’t see the ruching unless you’re up close. It’s simple, stylish, and surprising.
6. One-Shoulder Cutout Swimsuit
Maybe you’re looking for something less simple and subtle. Then this one-shoulder cutout from SHEIN is meant for you! It’s a statement piece in so many ways: it’s asymmetrical, it has one shoulder, and it has cutouts. Couple all of that with the high waistline, and it’s flattering for so many body types. It’s the perfect addition to your swimsuits for your honeymoon.
7. Go With the Flow White Puff Sleeve Bikini
From: Pink Lilly
We had to include this swimsuit because look at those shoulder ruffles! Most bikini tops lack coverage, and that can be problematic for bustier women or women who want more coverage overall. But this bikini top has capped sleeves for just the right amount of support and coverage. The high-waisted bottoms could be mixed and matched for any style, and the top has a self-tying back.
8. Danielle One-Piece Swimsuit
From: Saks Fifth Avenue
Who doesn’t love a buckle detail—or the 90s! This off-white one-piece is from Saks Fifth Avenue’s 90s Collection, so it has a belted waist and underwire cups. The result is a modern take on a fun decade, and it’s sure to make you feel stunning on your honeymoon.
9. Ribbed Open-Back Plunging Halter One-Piece
From: Rose Swimsuits
Keeping in line with the off-white theme is this beautiful swimsuit from Rose Swimsuits. With a plunging neck line and open back, it’s a little sexy. But the high waist and tie belt make it modern and chic, too. The stretchy, ribbed fabric means it’s comfortable, too. Perfect for a fashionable day in the sun!
10. “Bride” One-Piece Swimsuit
From: Rose Gold Rebel
Some brides want everyone to know they’re brides. It’s a big moment, and you should celebrate however you want! So if you want a swimsuit for your honeymoon that tells everyone you’re on your honeymoon—Rose Gold Rebel can help. This custom swimsuit comes in seven colors, so you can match it to your wedding theme, your favorite color, or your coverup.
Even though it takes place after the fact, your honeymoon is still part of your wedding celebration. That means it should be just as special—and you should feel just as comfortable and pretty as you did in your wedding dress. Granted, none of these swimsuits are going to be tailored to fit. But you can still choose one that reflects your style and makes you the star the show, even if it’s just you and your partner!
Which swimsuit was your favorite? Which would you pack?
