We may not be able to go on a tropical getaway this summer, but that doesn't mean we can't look good while dipping into one of Hong Kong’s best pools or visiting the beach to soak up some rays. A statement-making swimsuit is mighty essential for the summer. While there are plenty of high street stalls and local markets that can provide all your basic beachwear needs, there are some precious indie shops and online platforms that can really make your outfit stand out. Join us and dive in to discover some of the best stores in Hong Kong for chic and practical swimwear.

Shopping Tsim Sha Tsui

This Italian legwear and beachwear label has an abundance of bikinis and other swimwear on offer. Not to mention, all the styles and cuts you can think of. Triangle tops, ruffles, one-shoulder, push-up, strapless, criss-cross – you name it, they’ve got it. The designs aren’t boring either, ranging from plain colours to detailed prints and stripes. And the best thing? They’re all padded. Complete the outfit with a flowy summer dress and some eye-catching accessories.

Hollow the Label

Launched by Shek O native Petra Greening, this locally based e-commerce brand is inspired by Greening’s love of design, travel, and minimalism. Frustrated by the dearth of swimwear options in Hong Kong, Hollow offers bikinis in straightforward European cuts with understated colours. The designs sculpt and hug your curves, and the options can be mixed and matched in any style and colour you want. As well as Hollow’s website, you can also pick up their products from shops like Mahka.

Mint Escape

The variety of swimwear on offer in Hong Kong is usually rather plain and limited in that you end up buying a full set by default. Luckily, Mint Escape is here to help you mix and match. There's a great ratio of bikini tops and bottoms in different block colours – in flirty yet practical cuts as well – along with swimwear pieces in fun, floral patterns. You’ll also find one-pieces and tankinis that actually look chic and trendy.
