Perfected Prints & Chic Solids | The New Swim Dress | Mix & Match Separates |

When it comes to comfort and support, the right swimwear makes all the difference. That’s why we went straight to the source and developed the Swim Sense Collection in collaboration with designer Carmen Marc Valvo. Not only do we bring you swimwear that looks good, but we also ensure each style provides the coverage and ease of wear you want. This season brings a few exciting updates to the collection...and just in time to add to your vacation packing list.


1. Perfected Prints & Chic Solids

Prints not only liven up a swimsuit but they also draw attention toward the pattern, so they work to smooth out imperfections and add personal flair. Our latest Exploded Blooms abstract marries muted blues and lavender to create a stunning tonal print.

You may opt to mix and match this print to a coordinated solid, or just go with a total Single-hue look. The collection offers both one-pieces and separates in a rotating assortment of colors, so check back often for the latest in solids.

2. The New Swim Dress

It’s time the Swim Dress made a comeback. We are obsessed with this chic swim statement. It is sophisticated, timeless, and ultra-glam when you want maximum coverage. We designed the Swim Sense Swim Dress with a shape-enhancing halter neckline and a side slit for tying it off at the hem when you feel a little flirty.

Note: Love one-pieces with a bit less coverage? Opt for the iconic surplice one-piece with front ruching.

3. Mix & Match Separates

Customizing swimwear is essential to accommodate different body types and style preferences. The collection 

is the perfect solution for creating custom looks and can be ordered in different sizes on top and bottom to create 

a custom fit. And coordinating cover up options keep your Swim Sense look matched to perfection.

With a choice of moderate or full coverage, Swim Sense swim bottoms are designed with a high waist for a smoother, more flattering fit around the tummy area. The bikini brief uses ruching around the waist and hips or benefit from our skirted bottom with a power mesh front panel, providing extra control and balance on top.

Swim Sense swim tops are constructed for coverage, support, and comfort with mindful design details. Necklines accentuate and support the bust, wider straps won’t dig in, and ruching minimizes around the waist.
