Everything You Need to Know about Buying Your First Swim Skirt

So you're thinking about diving in and buying your first swim skirt. From all of us at Amphitrite, we are so excited for you. Finding the perfect swim skirt can transform your relationship with swimwear, leaving you feeling confident, empowered, and beautiful. In this blog post, we uncover everything you need to know about buying your first swim skirt and why it's destined to become an essential part of your swimwear collection.

What is a swim skirt?

As the name suggests, a swim skirt is a style of swimwear that features a skirted bottom. Unlike coverups like sarongs or pareos, which are typically made from cotton and are designed to be worn out of the water, swim skirts are made from swimwear fabric and are designed to replace your traditional swimwear.

Why choose a swim skirt?

For many women, shopping for swimwear can feel like a daunting task. From fears about whether it will flatter your figure to concerns about whether a style is practical or comfortable, many women experience swimwear anxiety and struggle to find options that make them feel confident and beautiful.

Swim skirts solve many of these concerns. Swim skirts offer additional coverage around the hips and thighs, making them ideal for anyone who feels self-conscious wearing more revealing swimwear in public or prefers more sun protection. They also include a built-in brief, providing a sense of comfort and security. The beauty of a swim skirt also lies in its versatility. Swim skirts effortlessly transition from the water to other activities, ultimately replacing the need for a cover-up or resort wear. Whether you're planning to stroll on the beach, lounge by the pool, dip in the ocean, or visit a beachside bar or restaurant, swim skirts are a chic, stylish, and convenient option.

Swim skirt sizing & care

Like all swimwear, choosing the right size is important. Before buying a swim skirt, we recommend that you measure your waist and hips, then refer to our size chart to find your perfect fit.

Once you have made your purchase, swim skirts are easy to care for. They should be rinsed with cold water after each use to remove any chlorine or saltwater. Then, we suggest hand washing your swim skirt in cold water, and if you choose to use soap, use one that is mild and fragrance-free. Swim skirts dry best on a flat surface in the shade, and like most swimwear should not be ironed, soaked, dry cleaned or tumble-dried. It is also important to avoid contact with suntan lotions, oils, rough surfaces and jewellery that can stain or snag your swim skirt.
