In Singapore, the year-round summer weather means you can’t do without swimwear, and you’ll need a few. It’s a hard life! Whether you’re wondering where to buy a bikini or a full swimsuit, or even something more sporty for swimming laps, there’s a good range of shopping options. This list includes the best online and physical stores to buy swimwear for women of all shapes and sizes.
La Pêche Swimwear
As Jolynn and Valerie floated on a giant blue seashell on a hot summer day in Ibiza, they chatted idly about how it would be great to design their own line of resortwear. And that’s how La Pêche Swimwear got its start.
The pair’s mantra is: ‘Love your body and love life! Let us do the heavy lifting for you to look great.’ Their swimwear fabrics are made from recyclable materials from Italy and Spain. The fabric print is hand-drawn in Singapore, and then printed in one of the best printing mills in the UK. At La Pêche, the belief is that fashion should look good but also feel good; that’s why ethical production and honest social responsibility are key foundations of the brand.
Combining sleek silhouettes with arty aesthetics, the brand aims to make you stand out in any beach setting, whether it’s lying under the sun or partying away in a beach club. Their swimwear is cut to accentuate feminine curves, and the beautiful details and thoughtful design elements make you feel gorgeous. In fact, their pieces are so pretty it’s hard to take your eyes off them!
New! Tropical Fruit Garden Collection 2021
“Extraordinary swimwear for extraordinary times – our new theme encapsulates the rich diversity of tropical flora and fauna found in this part of the world. With the concrete jungles we live in, it’s a reminder to slow down and appreciate the beautiful and natural world that we belong to. Go ahead and enjoy the sunshine!”
Founded in 2019, this Singapore-based swimwear brand doesn’t break the bank. We’re eyeing the latest Casa Amber collection, a fab line-up of minimalist designs featuring luxurious velvet on a blend of soft nylon and spandex. Intricate details are key in this contemporary and easy-to-wear range, with delicate rose gold hardware meticulously hand-sewn onto each piece. If you prefer something with more coverage, go for the fitted, sporty-looking Robin top ($40), which provides ample support for fun in the sun. Pair it with the matching Robin bottom ($37), a high-waisted, figure-flattering silhouette that hugs in all the right places.
The designs are available in limited runs, so if you’re eyeing something on the site, you’ll want to get your hands on it, stat! Each order is also packed in an Amber Swim Essentials bag that’s made with an off-white canvas and completed with a luxe midnight blue ribbon; the pretty packaging makes gifting a breeze.

Wondering where to buy a bikini that’s made ethically and responsibly? Check out local label UBU.

On top of that, it feels amazingly soft on the skin!
