If You’re Going To Buy One Bikini, Make It From Here.

Sarah Sidway Godshaw has designed swimwear for top brands such as Puma, Show Me Your Mumu, Nanette Lepore, and more. She even helped launched Nasty Gal’s uber-successful swim line. Now, she started her own namesake swim label, Sidway Swim, which is inspired by 90’s supermodels condensed for everyday wear. I’m serious when I say that if I was to only buy one swimsuit this summer, it would for sure be from Sidway.

Quickly becoming a cult-fave among influencers, Sidway’s suits are the “elevated basic” version of swimwear. If you love long-lasting and multi-functional wear, then these are the suits for you.

Hits the spot.

Although they run about $180 a set, they’re meant to last. Each suit is designed to hug your curves, not dig into your sides (like most suits I’ve tried, tbh). The jersey/spandex blend fabric is hemmed with real rubber to ensure the elasticity of the edges. No more stretched-out crotches.

If I haven’t convinced you yet, check out some of my favorite pieces from their current collection, including their bestselling bright orange hue, “poppy”.
