Goa is synonymous with beaches, just like how Biselri is to water. Isn’t it? There are no second thoughts when thinking of a beach holiday. It has to be Goa. Goa is the queen of beaches and has the most exotic ones in India.
If you are planning a summer vacay in Goa, you know what you need to pack first and foremost – stylish, trendy swimwear.
There are striking monokinis, retro bikinis, easy-breezy capes and dresses, to name a few. We share with you some fun swimwear trends to try while you visit the sunshine state of Goa.
Swim Wear For The Hot-Bods
As the temperatures soar, the water looks even more compelling. It is, indeed, the right time to take a dip and cool off while looking jazzy and trendy in the new swimwear. Here are a few you can shop for your beach vacay: –
A Bikini/ Monokini or a Bodysuit
A Bikini is an all-time favourite beachwear for every girl. It is a two-piece swimsuit fashioned in various styles for every body shape.
One Piece Swimsuit
One piece will never go out of style. It is a forever fashion swimsuit that has a vintage look.
Tankini set is a melange of a tank top with a bikini bottom. It brings a flattering look and hides the tummy fat flawlessly.
If you are looking for an elegant swimsuit for a lady, a Swim Dress is just what you need. The melange of a swimsuit with a dress makes it unique and flirty at the same time.
Skirtini gives a kittenish and coy look, perfect for pool parties. Show your flashy and girly side with this modish looking short and sexy looking swimsuit that would cover up your hip and thighs.
A leg suit is a figure-hugging swimsuit that would suit all the hot-bods with long legs. This comfortable and sassy fashionable suit is perfect for aqua aerobics and swimming. Add a dash of style to this leg suit and show your charismatic side.
A sling swimsuit is also a sling bikini, a suspender thong with an alluring and bold look. The Y shape style slingshot swimsuit will grab attention and make you stand out in the crowd.
A ruffle swimsuit brings a flirtatious vibe and would even look fashion-forward. Ruffles add a busty look and so would look amazing on women with small busts.
Bandeau swimsuit reflects a tropical look and would be an ideal pick for Goan beaches. And colour block bandeau would show a vibrant and zesty side of yours.
Top-Bottom Set is another demure swimsuit for women who want to experiment but are shy to show skin. But there are even more flashy, and sassy top-bottom beach wears that are trendy and a favourite of every beach babe.
Cool, fabulous and swanky looking three-piece swimsuit is sure to catch the interest of all beautiful girls. A three-piece swimsuit is an innovative and versatile wear for all those who don’t want to bare it all.
Cover-ups, Sarongs, Maxi Dresses
The best part of a place like Goa is that you can party in your beachwear. Just carry a sassy and vibrant cover-up dress or a sarong, and you are all set for a nightclub.
Shorts and Tee go handy
Keep it casual with a short and simple tee over your swimwear. The best part about shorts is that they are comfortable and most of the restaurants, clubs and pubs in Goa allow the customers in shorts.
New Trends In Beach Wear
New Swimwear Fashion of 2022
Sequined: A white, sequined monokini can add the required amount of oomph and glamour to your look.

Goa is waking up with eco-friendly beachwear fashion. So say hello to eco-friendly swimsuits.
A good swimsuit is functional, fashionable, and should dry out quickly. For this reason, the swimwear is traditionally made with stretch-happy fabrics like nylon and spandex that have high plastic content. However, with this awakening, the Indian fashion industry is innovating and stepping into sustainable fashion to overturn the trend.
Here is the list of sustainable swimwear brands you can shop for even in Goa:
Verandah was one of the first Indian labels to look at making swimwear sustainable. Founder Anjali Patel Mehta founded Verandah, which uses ECONYL, a favoured fabric with many conscious swim brands.
Swimwear designer Esha Lal, who launched The Beach Company, created an eco-conscious resort label.
Another sustainable swimwear brand making the rounds is OOKIOH, started by an Odisha-born Vivek Agarwal, who uses upcycled fabrics.
Shivan and Narresh is India’s OG luxe holiday brand and are working on a line of swimsuits made of sustainable fabrics.
A sustainable approach to fashion includes ASOS. The black One Piece never goes out of style. The speciality of the mesh insert swimsuit is that it is made with ECONYL, a fabric that uses fisher nets and nylon waste fabric.
You can shop for sustainable swimwear at Verandah in Calangute – Arpora Road, Anjuna, Goa; Angel Croshet in Arpora – Bardez, Goa; and at Curves Goa in Calangute.
