National Bikini Day is July 5, and there’s no better place to be on this holiday than Myrtle Beach. It’s the perfect time to finally show off that summer bod and flaunt the latest fashion on the Grand Strand. If you’re coming to Myrtle Beach for Bikini Day, here’s all you need to know to celebrate in style. Pack your favorite two-piece or treat yourself to a new suit when you arrive!

Where to Buy a Bikini in Myrtle Beach

There are plenty of places on the Grand Strand to buy a bikini you’ll want to show off on the beach. Here are a few of the top options to check out when you get here:


Ron Jon Surf Shop


Even if you aren’t in the market for a new bikini, this surf shop is well worth a visit! First established in 1959, Ron Jon has since become an iconic presence in beach towns ranging from Florida and South Carolina to New Jersey, Maryland, and Alabama. Ron Jon’s bikini selection is sporty and stylish, and the store is also a good spot for grabbing clothing, gear, souvenirs, and beach essentials like sunscreen.


Plan a walk to the pier or the Boardwalk. Bring a deck of cards, a good beach read, and sand toys for the kids and you’ll have a great time.

Tips for Picking Your Swimwear Ensemble

Finding the right bikini and swimwear ensemble for you can be hard sometimes, but here are some things to remember when shopping for that perfect two-piece and more:


Mix and Match


Don’t feel like you have to buy your bikini tops and bottoms in a matching set — casual and comfortable is the name of the game when donning swimwear, especially on the beach. To create your own unique look and style, consider mixing and matching your tops and bottoms. You will want to choose similar or the same materials for the top and bottom of your bikini pairing, along with similar colors or patterns when mixing prints. Further, look to pair tops and bottoms with similar coverage, and consider pairing a print with a solid color.


Lift Your Look


Adding the right out-of-the-water counterparts to your bikini of choice is a great way to take your look to another level. A fashionable cover-up can add a splash of style when you’re hanging out on the beach or by the pool, with good options to consider including full-length cover-ups such as flowy kaftans or maxi cover-up dresses, as well as shirt-style cover-ups that hit at or above the knee. A cardigan swim cover-up can work as a chic drape, or if seeking less coverage, consider wide-leg pants or short cover-ups that cover only your bottom.


Elevate Your Style With Accessories


Don’t forget to put the finishing touches on your swimwear ensemble with accessories like stylish sandals, an attractive beach bag, quality sunglasses and, for the final touch up top, a sun hat that fits your style. With all of these elements, feel free to mix and match with various textures, patterns and prints to complete your unique look.
