As you are searching for a pageant swimsuit, there are so many different styles and designers and it may have you a bit confused. Keep in mind that pageant swimwear is not the same as the swimwear you’re going to wear in the hot tub tonight. Pageant swimwear has a specific style. It should have high-cut sides to show off your legs and a top that will enhance your features. So what brands of swimwear should you be looking at? Here are my top four pageant swimsuit brands.

Venus swimwear is not available in stores. You can start by looking at www.venus.com. These swimsuits are available at relatively affordable prices (for a pageant swimsuit) and come in just about any color or style you could want. I can guarantee you’ve watched a pageant that had a girl wearing a swimsuit from here. The best styles to go for from Venus from person experience are any of the halter push up tops or scoop/ low rise bottoms (multiple state swimsuit winners every year wear some version of their Goddess swimsuit). A con about Venus swimwear is that most of their swimsuits do not have embellishments, so if you are looking for something with rhinestones or a hoop on the hip or halter part, keep reading about the other designers. If you are looking for an affordable solid color swimsuit this is your stop.

If you are looking for a one piece swimsuit, Lady M is the way to go in my opinion. There are many unique one piece swimsuit styles that I haven’t seen other designers offer. There are also great rhinestone designs available for these swimsuits. There are twenty different colors to choose from for your suit as well. There is also an option on the site to request a custom made swimsuit. Most of the two piece designs look similar, but if you look closely there are actually differences. When looking for a two piece make sure you look at enlarged photos of each before selecting. www.ladymswimwear.com

Jamye Shaw is the top designer in pageant swimwear.
I am sure you’ve heard someone bragging before about their Jamye Shaw swimsuit. These swimsuits are made to last but also are the most pricey, averaging a few hundred dollars. These swimsuits are cut to perfection in my opinion. She is the most well-known swimsuit designer and has sold winning swimsuits for years. There is also an option to create a custom order for this designer. These swimsuits have such a huge range. From striped to solid color, these swimsuits definitely stand out on stage and are styled like iconic pageant swimsuits. www.jamyeshaw.com
