Here are the best reversible swimsuits for travel:
Get the most from your bathing suit by choosing one that not only gives you two color choices but different looks, too – a solid color on one side and a pattern in the other like this Maaji Swirl Reversible Fixed Halter Bikini Top Swimsuit. Reversible bathing suits serve a multi-purpose function acting as swimwear and underwear.

A bikini can easily double up as a halter bra and emergency undies. After searching high and low I finally found the perfect bathing suit at Nordstrom. The Maaji Sublime Reversible Hipster Cut Bikini Bottom bikini was offered in many colors and had a solid color on one side and printed on the other. I chose the black as a good travel basic and have been thrilled with my purchase.
I mix and match in 4 different combinations, interchanging the solid and pattern sides to keep my look fresh. My favorite part of this bathing suit is that it adds just a touch of feminine accent with a small and delicate lace trim.
Otherwise, the simple styling allows for flexibility and fits well with my personal style, too which is the golden rule of packing. At $100, it’s a bit of a higher pricepoint but I rationalized the price as two bathing suits in one like this Tommy Bahama Gingham Reversible One-Piece Swimsuit.
Many travelers designate one packing cube just for their swimwear, bras and underwear.
Separates from budget shops like H&M and Target range from $14.99 – $24.99. Purchasing one quality suit that also provides multi-purpose is worth the higher price tag. This rule generally applies to all my travel gear.
I love traveling carry on only and multi-functional items help me stay in check! I highly recommend investing in a reversible bathing suit like this one. It is truly a travel must have!
