Sometimes spending more money one time can save you money down the road. Buying a good bathing suit is one of those times when this rule applies. I have bought Eres bathing suits for years for many reasons–they are timeless yet modern, the fabric holds up forever (they don’t lose their stretch), and if you rinse or wash them after each wear the color never fades (with a delicate soap like one from The Laundress, in the sink or shower, not a washing machine).
While, Eres has new styles every year, they are also one of those few companies (thankfully) that understands the appeal of the their classic shapes, like this one-piece Cassiopee style Vanessa Traina is wearing (the pic is from her Insta), which they sell year after year. I have the two piece version and haven’t found a bikini I like better, so I’m going to invest in the one piece, because it’s flattering on everyone (I am posting some of the women who wear it on my Insta today and they are all hardcore chic–Ashely Olsen, Caroline de Maigret and others) and the style never gets old. An Eres suit fits with my buy less, buy better motto, because you don’t need a wardrobe of bathing suits (unless you wear them for work), you need a couple of flattering, elegant options you can always rely on. Plus, if you don’t need one now you don’t need to feel pressured, you can always wait until next year. Shop Eres here and here.
Top: Burgundy one-piece, $405, army green bikini, $340 (pieces sold separately); black one piece, $440; printed one piece, $500.

I love Eres suits but am sad they don’t sell them as separates any more! It was a lot better when you could mix and match the top and bottom styles!
Betsy, I checked out Jennifer’s link to Net-a-Porter and they have a lot of separates!
I have a few Eres suits that are 10 years old and have been in and out of the ocean, chlorinated pools, so many times…and they’re as good as new. I never use any soap, just rinse them out in the shower.
