Swanky Swimwear

Find the perfect trunks or teeny-weeny bikinis

4 Seasons Swimwear in Palm Desert

David A. Lee

Palm Springs offers the perfect places to lose your street clothes and don swanky swimwear that ranges from the tiniest string bikinis to much more modest fare. Get your new suit at one of our favorites.

Designer Trina Turk is known for her ability to capture the essence of the desert experience with prints and patterns that evoke warmth, sunshine, and an abundance of style.  The expansive Trina Turk boutique in the Uptown Design District in Palm Springs features her resort line of men’s and women’s swimwear and cover-ups. Try a swim dress or tankini for the perfect fit on any body type. The Mr. Turk line for men is available in all styles, including bikinis, square-cut, trunks, and board shorts. All suits are available in Turk’s signature designs and vibrant solids.

Shop at the outlets on I-10 west of the Coachella Valley and stop by Rip Curl — the “Ultimate Surfing Company”. This private-label store carries one of the most extensive suit selections east of the coastal communities. Rip Curl attracts a distinct junior customer, with both one- and two-piece women’s suits available. Board shorts for men come in colorful solids and prints, and the Mirage suits line offers a quick-dry feature perfect for pool-to-casual wear. All suits are priced significantly less than at the full-line Rip Curl stores.  

Gay Mart, the clothing and lifestyle store in the heart of the LGBT corridor on Arenas Road in Palm Springs, is known for its inventory of men’s bikinis, square-cuts, and thongs — upwards of 4,500 suits in stock. Crowd-pleasing vendors like Andrew Christian, Jocko, Go-Software, and Sauvage fly off the racks — especially around Palm Springs White Party in early April.

Diane’s Beachwear has three locations in the Coachella Valley, with stores in downtown Palm Springs, The River at Rancho Mirage, and on El Paseo in Palm Desert. With women’s swimwear that will fit everyone from petite to full-figured, Diane’s carries tankini, bandeau, and halter tops, as well as tie-side, Brazilian, scrunch-butt, and string bottoms. It also houses a selection of stylish one-pieces. Vix Swimwear, available in many designs, is known for its support features and flexibility of coverage. Other notable brands include Jantzen, La Blanca, Pilyq Barcelona, and Despi. 

Find one of the largest year-round collections of bathing suits for men and women at 4 Seasons Swimwear. Discover gorgeous designs by Diva, as well as the full collection of slimming Miraclesuits. Speedo briefs, square-cuts, and trunks are available for men.

For the little ones, choose adorable water-wear at She She Kids at The Gardens on El Paseo. The store carries suits for both boys and girls by Kate Mack and Les Tout Petits.
