Last year we did not really have a summer to enjoy, thanks to the raging pandemic. So, this year as beaches and swimming pools across UAE slowly open for the public, we must aim to savor the remaining days of summer.
And what better way to enjoy the season than sitting alongside a beach in brand new swimwear while flaunting the gains you have slowly made working out while being stuck at home. Now, shopping can be overwhelming for the best of us, so we understand if you feel lost while scouring the world wide web for “The perfect” swimsuit for you.
Here are a few brands that we feel will be perfect for you to flaunt your beach bod in this summer:
Want to buy from a brand that is popular among Instagrammers and models across the world? Then Beach City is all for you! This Dubai-based brand is a perfect balance of fast fashion and elegance.
If you love the traditional shopping experience of perusing the aisles of clothes, then their massive store in Palm Jumeirah’s Nakheel mall is quickly going to become your favorite. On the flip side of the coin, if you love the convenience and gratification of buying stuff online, their easy-to-navigate website will quickly become your go-to for everything. Be it from beachwear to brunch wear and even accessories.
Ongoing offers: Beach City currently has an end-of-summer sale. They further have a next-day delivery for customers across UAE and 3-day delivery worldwide. And the cherry on top is that they even offer a 4-hour delivery in Dubai if you place an order before 5 pm.
This amazing swimwear brand offers deluxe swimwear and beachwear. It was found by sisters cum business partners Cyrille Verstuyf and Charlotte Verstuyf. Their motivation for the same was a belief that women, irrespective of their body type, style, and personalities, deserve a proper, fashionable swim/beach suit in which they feel comfortable and confident.
Ongoing offers: Cocobum is currently offering free delivery across the UAE. And to top it off, if you sign up now, you can avail yourself of a discount of up to 10% off.
Sand Dollar Dubai
Lucy Gibson, a mother of two from UAE, noticed a dearth of “try before you buy” online beachwear stores. She decided then and there to fill that space in the market and founded Sand Dollar Dubai. The brand delivers top-of-the-line, fashion-forward beachwear and swimwear to your doorstep. Sand Dollar does what others fail to do. They are selling over 100 brands from across the world, from Caha Cao to Sunseeker.
Ongoing offers: Currently, they have a fantastic sale on their designer swimwear. So go on to their amazing website and get a pair or more for yourself.
Established in 1992, this swimwear brand has since become a commonly heard name amongst the beach-going elites of the UAE. Bare Essentialshas everything, from a brick-and-mortar boutique store on the 1st floor of the Jumeirah Centre to an easy-to-navigate online store.
Ongoing offers: They are currently offering free same-day delivery in Dubai and free international shipping (on orders over $100).
Point to note: Bare Essentials was the first swimwear specialist brand to have the pleasure of serving the people of the UAE.
Léa The Label
Léa Daaboul the founder of this brand was born in Lebanon. Its a country that has a deep connection to the beaches. So it was not surprising that Léa was heavily influenced by the sea. And thus he went on to create this amazing swimwear brand focussed on promoting sustainability and minimalism. Her designs are timeless.
They accentuate the female figure but ensure that you do not look like an eyesore in front of the calm sea in a loud neon swimsuit. All the products under this label are made from 100% regenerated nylon, are chlorine and suntan oil resistant. But above all else, Léa’s swimwear is the epitome of comfort. Her brand has since been featured in many world-acclaimed publications, including Vogue.
This Summer in the UAE, prepare to set fire to the beach as you saunter around confidently with the salty breeze in your hair, the sand between your toes, and an amazing swimsuit accentuating your curves.
