Find Your Fit: The L*SPACE Swim Style Guide

If you know, you know...and if you're new around here, welcome! We're the ultimate destination for bestselling swim styles that you’ll love to live in. We definitely don't take life too seriously, but fit? That's another story. Our designs focus on those chic-yet-unfussy closet staples you'll cherish for years to come. We use luxe, buttery-soft fabrics to create pieces that are meant to hold up season after season. Whether you're looking for on-trend tie dye or a timeless vintage vibe, we've got a little somethin' for everyone. 

So here's the rundown on That Feel Good Fit:

FABRIC

Quality fabrics with a superior hand-feel have always been our thing. We call our signature staple fabrication the "Sensual Solid" because it not only feels great to the touch, it also feels great on you. Most of these styles are self-lined, seamless, and stretchy for a perfect fit. 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Kit, Playa, Parker, One Wave

Recommended Swim Bottoms:

Harrington, Cabana, Sandy, Breakers

Ribbed swim has been a huge trend the last few years, with our talented designers paving the way for its resurgence. These styles are just as soft as our signature pieces, with a contemporary textured twist. Expect Sensual Solid lining and sculptural silhouettes on our Ribbed swim tops and bottoms. 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Rebel, Tara, Lee Lee, Lala, Beach Wave, Daisy

Recommended Swim Bottoms:

Frenchi, Veronica, Vacay

Always innovating, our designers took Ribbed one step further with our new Pointelle Rib. These pieces are delicately detailed and are lined with the same luxe Sensual Solid fabric. This season we did them in an array of bold brights that'll make your tan pop (and heads turn). 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Camellia, Lee Lee, Daisy

Last season we were thrilled to launch of Eco Chic swim collection, constructed with 100% recycled Nylon fabrics from Repreve and Econyl. This is the start of a long-term goal to build our sustainable fabrications and leave a smaller carbon footprint as a company. Though these pieces are made from regenerated plastics like water bottles and fishing nets (how amazing is that?!) you'd never know it, because they're just as soft as the rest of our line.

STYLE FEATURES

L*Space high waist bikini bottoms

We could say high-waisted swim bottoms are back, but were they ever really out? (We don't think so). Classic yet totally on-trend, these bottoms will accentuate your waist with a vintage-inspired silhouette that's oh-so-flattering. 

Recommended Swim Bottoms:

Frenchi, Portia, Portia Stripe, Portia Girl, Jackie, Harrington

l*space minimalist swim styles

Sleek and sexy, minimalist swimsuits are ready to steal the show on your IG feed. These pieces are low on frills and high on style, with clean lines and contemporary silhouettes. You just can't go wrong - these are bikini drawer staples. 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Millie, Rebel, Parker, Lee Lee

Recommended Swim Bottoms:

Cabana, Jay, Veronica, Frenchi

L*Space color block swim styles

Another trend we've led the way in? Sporty color blocked swim! We're known for our timeless cuts and fun, striped patterns. When properly placed, bold stripes (yes, even horizontal ones!) are incredibly flattering and have a vintage-inspired appeal that's anything but stuffy. You could say these are our ride-or-die styles. 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Rebel Stripe, Rebel Heart, Missy, Gigi, Lala

Recommended Swim Bottoms:

Portia Stripe, Portia Girl, Frenchi, Whiplash, Vacay

L*Space high cut leg swim styles

Maybe you're getting flashbacks of old home videos of your mom in the '80s when you see this style, but you know what? Your mom was a total BABE in it, and you will be too! A high-cut swim bottom is incredibly flattering and will give all body types #legsfordays. We can't get enough.

Recommended Swim Bottoms:

Frenchi, Cabana, Jay, Whiplash

 

TOP SUPPORT

l*Space bralette tops

This style is a total no-brainer. These slip-on swim tops fit like your favorite bralette or sports bra (sans wrestling it on and off, amirite?!). With medium level support, these pieces give you everything you need in one comfortable, second-skin package. 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Parker, Rebel, Rebel Stripe, Rebel Heart, Playa, Lizzie, Beach Wave

L*Space D and DD swim tops

You asked, we listened. Tons of our tops now come in D and DD cups for our gals looking for more coverage and support! Got a smaller band? The Flashback swim top is perfect with its adjustable ties in the back for a custom fit. Our Camellia swim top, with its underwire support and an adjustable tie in the back, is a top favorite. 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Camellia, Jess, Nina, Tara, Lee Lee, Flashback, Parker

L*Space removable padding tops

Have your cake and eat it, too. These styles have removable padding, so you can choose your level of support and coverage! If you prefer the look and feel of padding, these pieces are perfect for you. Featuring soft cups for a natural look - nobody will know but you. 

Recommended Swim Tops:

Playa, Lala, Lizzie, Daisy, Millie, Shay

L*Space underwire bikini tops

 

Nothing beats an underwire for support, and we have several styles that fit the bill. These tops are so soft, you won't even feel it's there.
