12 geeky swimsuits perfect for summer

There's a sea of options

We all know the only thing you have to do to get a bikini body is wear a bikini on your body but that still leaves you with the challenge of finding the perfect swimsuit, the one that makes you feel most you. Well, in case you have’t noticed, we have a penchant for geekery at Gadgette so we can think of nothing better than a trip to the beach wearing something inspired by our favourite film, game, or superhero characters. If you like the idea of this too, check out these incredible geeky one and two pieces we’ve gathered.

12. Super Mario

Pretend you’re going on a trip to Koopa Troopa beach with this two piece featuring all of your favourites from the Super Mario universe. This set comes with two bottoms if you find the patterned top and bottom together a little too much for your eyes.

£25 plus £3 delivery from Soft Kitty Clothing

11. Wonder Woman

The high-waisted retro look is back when it comes to swimsuits so why not just take it even further with this classic Wonder Woman costume. It even comes with a detachable cape, but we definitely wouldn’t advise wearing that in the water otherwise you might end up being the one that needs saving.

Available in sizes XXS to XL with long torso options available for $110 (£56) from Black Milk Clothing.

10. Space Heroine

You’re not swimming at the bottom of the pool, you’re exploring a water-logged planet in a galaxy far far away looking for other life forms. With an amazing space suit. If you’re not so partial to purple, the space heroine design from Living Dead Clothing is also available in other colours such as blue, green, and red.

In sizes XS to XL with long torso options available for $80 (£40) plus around £8 delivery from Living Dead Clothing.

9.The Joker

Not everyone wants to be a hero, maybe you’d prefer to channel The Joker next time you head down to the pool? Complete the look by forgetting you put mascara on before you canon ball in.

Available in sizes XS to XL at $34.50 (£24) each for the top and bottoms plus £26 delivery from Hot Topic.

8. Harley Quinn

If The Joker leaves you stony faced, maybe a Harley Quinn costume will make you smile? This one even comes with an amazing, though fortunately detachable, jester collar.

XXS to XL for $110 (£56) from Black Milk Clothing.

7. Circuit Board

It’s not something we’d immediately associate with putting in water with good results, but we love the design of this suit that’s as into circuit boards as they are surf boards.

XS to XL with long torso options for $80 (£40) plus £8 delivery from Living Dead Clothing.

6. R2-D2

Everyone’s favourite astromech droid doesn’t have a good track record with swimming. We’re sure R2 would rather forget falling into that murky pond on Dagobah. With this one piece you can represent the adorable droid and take to the depths in his colours.

Available in one size with measurements that stretch for £17.86 plus £9.55 shipping from GeekChicGifting on Etsy.

5. Darth Vader

I think we’d all like to see Darth Vader lounging on a watermelon shaped lilo sipping from a cocktail but wearing this suit is probably as close as we’ll ever get to making it happen.

Available in sizes XS to XXL at $24.50 (£17) each for the top and bottoms plus £26 delivery from Hot Topic. It should be noted there’s currently an offer at Hot Topic where buying the top will get you the bottoms for $10 (£7).

4. Eleventh Doctor

The Eleventh incarnation of the Doctor was one who embraced a more hipster style, with tweed blazers, a bow tie, suspenders, and a love of a fez hat. We loved David Tennant’s long coat and converse combo but unfortunately it doesn’t translate quite as well into a swimsuit as Matt Smith’s costume does. Just make sure you take your sonic screwdriver out before you jump in the water.

XXS to XL for $110 (£56) from Black Milk Clothing.

3. Dragon Scale

Dragon scales are smooth, light, and strong, which makes them perfect for moving swiftly through the water like a Gyarados.

XS to XL with long torso options available for $69 (£35) plus £8 shipping from Living Dead Clothing.

2. Sailor Moon

We can’t even express how cute we think this bikini is, we just wish there was more colours available so we could get all the sailor soliders together.

In sizes XS to XXL at $24.50 (£17) each for the top and bottoms plus £26 delivery to the UK from Hot Topic. It should be noted there’s currently an offer at Hot Topic where buying the top will get you the bottoms for $10 (£7).

1. Cyberman

The Cybermen are some of The Doctor’s most fearsome enemies but unlike the real Cybermen you’ll stand out as an individual wearing this suit. We also think that its design is kind of similar to a variation of Iron Man’s armour and we’re sure if you wanted to pretend that was the case no one would stop you. We certainly wouldn’t.

Available in sizes XXS to XL with long torso versions for $100 (around £50) from Black Milk Clothing.
