With summer right around the corner, it’s no surprise we jumped at the opportunity to do an Everlane Swim review. The San Francisco–based brand, known for its elevated but reasonably priced basics, made its foray into the swim category this spring. Glamour readers have proven they’re big fans of the brand—we tend to agree (and so does Meghan Markle)—so we obviously had to try the collection out for ourselves.
According to Everlane’s site, the brand tested the swimsuits on 112 different women to ensure a flattering fit for every body, and we decided to conduct our own little test, courtesy of five Glamour staffers.
The swim collection has seven minimalist cuts: two one-pieces as well as three bikini tops and two bikini bottoms that you can mix and match. The color range is pretty expansive—you can go neutral with chocolate brown, black, or off-white; opt for a primary color with red or blue; or make a summery statement with golden yellow or floral print. The suits are made of fabric derived from recycled plastic and range from $30 to $70. The size range still has room for expansion, but all in all, we were impressed by the quality feel and fit of the fabric. Ahead, read our Everlane Swim review to see the suits in various, colors, and cuts.

There’s something I find more comforting about being in a sports bra and compression shorts than a two-piece swimsuit, but Everlane may have changed the game for me. The fully-lined, quick-drying fabric reminds me of the support you get from athleisure—but the soft Italian material makes the suit feel seamless against the skin. I’m so glad I went with the rich Marigold color; the top was pretty spot-on size-wise, especially with its removable padding. Although I’m petite, I’m a bit curvy at my bum, and because Everlane’s High Rise Hipster Bottom has moderate coverage, I should have sized up from an XXS to an XS. But still, the bold yellow and modern square neckline are guaranteed to stand the test of time.
