For those of you who can’t wait and are seeking warm weather for spring break we’ve got you covered with a great selection of the hottest 2017 swimwear already in stock!
Jackie, Siobhan and I were so excited when these new swimsuits came in that we all tried them on then convinced our friend Sara to come model a few while we took some marketing pictures. The best thing about 2017 Swimsuit trends are high necks and fun, detailed backs!
At Tahoe Mountain Sports, we have swimwear for active women and girls who go to the beach to get wet, dirty and have a good time. You are swimming, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, running, chasing kids or balls and having fun. You want a swimsuit that will stay in place as you move, is quick drying and feels good wet or dry, doesn’t bunch or bag or fade or pill, it covers up where you want to be covered, doesn’t dig in and accentuates the areas you want accentuated. That’s easy to find, right?? Check out some of the styles we carry and either come into our store to try some on or click one of the links to buy it online.
One of our favorite brands of Swimwear, Carve Designs, is based in California and founded by two female surfers who are determined to push the boundaries of outdoor apparel and prove that functional can be fashionable and well-fitting. Their swimsuits and clothes are designed to be as inspirational and versatile as the women who wear them. Our favorite top from them is the –
- This sporty top is fully reversible and provides coverage and flexibility for all water activities
- Seamless construction is comfortable
- 50+ UPF Rating protects you from the sun
- Cute racerback style with keyhole cutout gives you a modern look
- Made in the USA of nylon and spandex that is quick drying and high quality so it will last more than one season
- It pairs well with Carve Designs Cardiff Bikini Bottom
We have lots of other swimsuits by Carve Designs in stock including the super cute Sanitas One-Piece and the Carve Designs Sophia Tankini which is a perfect blend of activewear tank and water friendly tankini, wear it with a pair of Carve Designs board shorts and you’re all set for a SUP Yoga class this summer!
Remember Water Girl swimsuits from the Patagonia Outlet for like $10 a top and $10 a bottom 15 years ago? That’s the last time I wore a Patagonia swimsuit until the spring 2017 line. They have really stepped it up with the best swimsuits that fit great made from fabric that feels amazing, it’s supple and luxurious with just the right thickness and the perfect amount of stretch. It’s sporty, functional, comfortable and makes you look and feel amazing!
Patagonia has great patterns and colors this season, like Ikat Fish and Monsoon Kelp, in fun styles that look good on most body types and hold everything in so you don’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions. We love these two styles, the Bottom Turn Top and the Tallowood Top, because they have the right amount of coverage while still showing off your curves. For bottoms we have the Paires bottom, which Patagonia has been making for a few years now, the coverage and cut on the 2017 version is perfect. Sometimes boy shorts can be too cheeky or make your tush look bigger than it actually is, the Paires bottom is cut perfectly to give you more coverage while the solid lines in the pattern and higher cut legs are very slimming. The Side Tie Bottoms provide full coverage and the side ties give you adjustability for a great fit with no slip.
New PrAna swimsuits are scheduled to arrive at our Truckee Store in May 2017. Here’s a preview of what’s coming and some links if you want to buy it now online. PrAna burst on the scene with swimwear about 3 years ago after having great success with strappy tank tops and climbing pants. Their swimsuits have beautiful, bright colors and prints inspired by exotic cultures and places around the world. The quality is high although sometimes the modesty cups are a bit funky; they do seem to be improved with the 2017 line. I get a new PrAna swimsuit each season, I have to because I’m the buyer, right? I just got the PrAna Dreaming One-Piece and took it with me for a week in Mexico. I could have worn a different swimsuit every day I packed so many but I choose to wear this one practically every day. I really want it in another color now!
Here’s a sample of the PrAna Dreaming Collection in some of the colors and patterns we’ll be getting, I love the scoop neck in the front and stunning back detail! Click the links above to see other colors and patterns.
Another cute style that is super flattering on was the Brina Top, it’s got the trendy high neck line although not as high as the Carve Designs Sanitas Top and it has spaghetti straps across the top and back for a less sporty, more playful look.
We also have traditional triangle bikini tops like the Prana Atla Bikini Top with reversible straps that cross or can be straight, the Prana Aleka has a fun, colorful t-back design that is fully adjustable and boardshorts including the Millie Boardshort which runs kind of big so order a size down and the Silvana Boardshort, coverups and lots of swimsuit bottoms.
Sometimes you just want to hit the Truckee Recreation Center Pool and swim laps as you prepare for your summer triathlon or you want a suit that will lay flat and stay put under a wetsuit. TYR has you covered. These suits definitely have an athletic fit so come in the store and try them on. We have one-piece styles and 2-piece styles.
We know it’s hard to find the perfect swimsuit but we are here to help make the process a bit easier and more fun. Stop by our Truckee Store and ask for Jackie or Siobhan and they will be happy to help you find the best swimsuit in Truckee!
