Becca Swim Review: High-Rise, Hipster & A One-Piece

I discovered BECCA swim a few years ago when I was trying to find a swimsuit after having Greenlea (via C-Section). I loved BECCA suits for their plunging necklines and not-too-cheeky but not-too full-coverage bottoms. They were always flattering and comfy and made me feel confident whether I was running after the kids at a pool or just nursing them on the beach (which I have done many, many times!).

So when I decided to try to find a bikini I love this year after almost exclusively wearing one-piece swimsuits for a while now, I thought BECCA might be a great place to start. I’m still trying to decide if I like high-rise or low-rise bottoms better, so I thought I’d try one of each: a low-rise (well, two, actually), a high-rise, and…a one-piece…just for good measure.

BECCA by Rebecca Virtue Hipster Bikini Bottom & X-Back Bikini Top

This bikini was my favorite! The color was MUCH brighter than I expected it to be, but I kinda loved it after trying it on! I normally stick to all black suits all the time, but the lining on this one is substantial enough that you don’t see details like you can with some other lighter suits (no nipple or camel toe outlines, please). The top is fabulous because the whole thing is adjustable…from the tightness of the halter straps to the sides. I love being able to adjust everything for the right fit (which also really helps when you have one boob that’s bigger than the other 🙋‍♀️). There’s ruching on the back of the hipster bottoms, which always looks more flattering, IMO, and I also like that you can wear them down around your hips or pulled up a bit higher on the sides (middle pic), which I think looks better somehow. The bottoms are a bit tight, but should loosen up after actually wearing them in water–suits always stretch out a bit, right?

BECCA Horizon Metallic Stripe Lace-Up Hipster Bikini Bottoms & Halter Top

I wanted to try this one because of the adjustable sides on the bottom and the cool colors. It was alright. I definitely like bottoms that can be adjusted on the sides, but something was just…off…about this suit. The top was a bit too small even though it has a tie-back…and I don’t think I liked the wide straps. It was ok, but not my favorite…and when you’re investing in a swimsuit you don’t really want to settle for “this is ok.”

BECCA Horizon Plunge One-Piece Swimsuit

OK, this one-piece was much better than the two-piece. It still had those cool colors and metallic details I loved, but the fit was just so much better. Comfortable, adjustable, and shows a little skin without inhibiting movement…the one-piece was just much better overall, and I felt a whole lot more confident wearing it. And a little confidence can make a world of difference. (Can you spot a little man patting my bum in the first pic? 😂)

BECCA by Rebecca Virtue Women’s Color Code Banded High Waist Bikini Bottom & Triangle Top

I really wanted to love these because they’re super-comfortable, but I just didn’t find them as flattering as the bottoms from Good American. They came up higher, which I liked, but the fit was off somehow. Maybe because they’re straight across on top and cover my belly button? I thought I’d like that, but it looks kind of weird to me now. The top was great, though! I mean, you can’t go wrong with a black halter with two adjustable straps, right? I think I’ll keep this one instead of the bandeau top I tried to wear with the GA bottoms.

  1. Love Becca suits. I love the bright yellow on you.. just wish they had it without the halter option, too.. hurts my neck too much. You look great though

  2. I’m petite – 5’ 2”. I struggle with finding one piece swimsuits that aren’t too long for me. Do you have anyone who is also petite?

  3. Would you review Vix? I love the one I have but am wondering if the bottoms need a refresh (like the good American ones you did)
