So pack your swimsuit, gather your friends and family, and get ready to soak up the sun and fun as we share this summer’s event details!

Mark Your Calendars

While this isn’t a comprehensive list at the time of writing, it covers a span of chronological events taking place in the summer of 2024. Let’s dive in.

Say Hello to Summer; Bubbles Block Party in South Jordan

Goldfish Swim School in South Jordan is kicking things off this summer with a swim party on Saturday, May 18th! From 3:00-5:00 pm, all are welcome to attend this FREE summer block party. Located at 1350 South Jordan Parkway South Jordan, UT 84095, guests can enjoy swimming for two hours, complete with prizes and treats from local vendors. It’s the perfect way to start the seasonal fun if you’re local (and get your stir-crazy kiddos out of the house). No need to RSVP—just rock your favorite Lime Ricki suit and show up!

Splash Days in Saratoga Springs

Let’s take things a little farther down south with Splash Days, hosted by the city of Saratoga Springs. From June 5th-8th, 2024, the city is packing the fun in with carnival rides, food trucks, live music, parades, and more, but we want to focus on the Kids Splash Bash for obvious reasons! This event takes place on Wednesday, June 5th, from 2-3:30 pm. Located at Sunrise Park (749 N. 800 W.), your family can play in the foam and water with the local fire department and enjoy treats and drinks from local food trucks. Know that it is designated for kids 12 and under, but if you’re chasing around a soapy toddler, you’ll want to dress the part. Our swim skirts and shorts were practically made for this scenario.

Cherry Days in North Ogden

Aaaand shooting back up north, let’s hear it for Cherry Days. (We don’t know who decided on having all these “days,” but we’re here for it!) If you live in Salt Lake City or beyond, you don’t want to miss out on Cherry Days. Similar to Splash Days, North Ogden will host a carnival, parade, outdoor movie night, pickleball tournaments, car show, etc.—the works! But again, we want to focus on the swimwear-worthy days.

Ramp Day at the North Shore Pool

Starting on Saturday, June 29th, the first 800 guests can swim FREE at North Shore Pool for “Ramp Day,” complete with a water playground for littles and a giant slide for the older kids. The event starts at 11:00 am and ends at 5:00 pm, located at 245 E 2550 N, North Ogden, UT 84414.

Flick ‘N Float at the North Shore Aquatic Center

Up next is a nighttime water event! On Wednesday, July 3rd, experience “Flick ‘N Float,” a chance to kick back in your inner tube or pool float (BYOIT or PF) while you watch the movie “Elemental.” No tickets are required for this family-friendly event, but note that it’s a late one if you have younger children. The movie will begin at 9:00 pm and go to about 11:00 pm. This movie/pool night is located at the same spot as above: 245 E 2550 N, North Ogden, UT 84414.

Foam Party at Wadman Park

Finally, don’t forget about the “Foam Party” on Thursday, July 4th! What better way to celebrate our country than being covered in soapy bubbles? It’s an awesome, family-friendly event that people rave about each year. The foam fun begins at 1:00 pm and ends at 3:00 pm, located at Wadman Park, 2700 N 1050 E, North Ogden, UT 84414. You do have to pay for a $2 wristband to get in, either online in advance or with cash the day of. Buy your tickets here.

See more details about the full Cherry Days lineup here.

Back of Beyond Paddle Race in Moab

Now we didn’t want to leave out our friends down south (we’re talking Southern Utah), so here’s one last event that doesn’t take place until Saturday, September 21st (the anticipation!). Don’t worry; it’ll still be swimsuit weather down there. The “2024 Back of Beyond Paddle Race” is mainly for our sporty gals, but if it’s more up your significant other’s or kids’ alleys, you can also just go to support.

The race will take place on the Colorado River in Moab (44 W 200 N Moab, UT 84532), and it’s two days of stand-up paddling and kayaking events through the spectacular red rock canyons of Southeastern Utah and past some of the world's most breathtaking scenery.

Day 1 is the 7-mile “Postcard Alley” flatwater race, starting at Dewey Bridge and ending at Hittle Bottom boat ramp. Day 2 is the “StandUp-ShowDown,” a whitewater race running through Rocky Rapid. Racers will sprint to navigate buoy turns through this class 2/3 rapid to take the title. Tickets range from $35-100 depending on what you partake in.

Whether you go to be part of the race or make a family getaway out of it, you’ll want a rash guard and swim shorts!

The Best Nursing-Friendly Swimsuits for Breastfeeding Moms

The Best Nursing-Friendly Swimsuits for Breastfeeding Moms


Shopping for swimsuits when you’re pregnant is one thing; shopping for swimsuits when you’re nursing that little human is a whole other animal. Fortunately, nursing-friendly swimwear does exist for breastfeeding mamas—you just have to know what to look for!

That’s where our team comes in. We want you to enjoy your busy, on-the-go summer at the beach or pool without feeling panicked about how you’re going to feed your child comfortably in public. Here, we’ll talk about our favorite nursing swimsuits and features to search for so you don’t have to compromise comfort or style.

Factors to Consider

The swimwear market is flooded with several options, which can make the task of choosing a nursing-friendly swimsuit feel overwhelming. To guide you in the right direction, consider these things:

Functionality: Nursing swimwear should be thoughtfully designed with convenient options like removable or easy-to-untie straps. The key is to choose a swimsuit that suits your preferences, ensuring you won't have to struggle with removing a damp suit each time your child is hungry, only to put it back on after feeding time is over.

Color/Patterns: It's no secret that milk tends to leak. Opting for certain shades and patterns, particularly darker and/or busier ones, proves to be more resilient against the unavoidable, good-ol’ spills and leaks often linked with nursing. 

Adjustability: As your body adjusts to postpartum life, choosing a nursing swimsuit with adjustable straps ensures a snug fit that can adapt to changes in the months ahead.

Now for the fun part: specific examples!

Tankini Tops

A tankini top with built-in cups is one of the most popular choices for breastfeeding moms. This nursing swim top offers the convenience of easy access for feeding while providing the coverage and support every mom desires. Plus, thanks to the cups, you can easily put nursing pads in. Look for adjustable straps and stretchy fabrics to accommodate changing breast sizes.

Speaking of adjustable straps, we are big fans of halter-style swimsuits for nursing mamas! The halter-neck design typically involves ties or a clasp at the back of the neck, allowing easy and quick access to the chest for breastfeeding. This feature makes it convenient to feed without having to remove the entire swimsuit. The adjustable neck ties also provide a customizable fit, which is—again—particularly helpful for changing breast sizes. Finally, halter-style nursing swimsuits offer good coverage around the chest area, which is especially helpful if you’re not used to your new cup size yet. Confidence and comfort? Check and check.

Adjustable Shoulder Ties

Similarly, adjustable shoulder ties or straps function the same way—there are just two of them instead of one. Shoulder ties allow for a customizable fit, easy access, and versatility. What’s nice about having two ties is you can leave one side done up while nursing on the opposite side and then switch to the other, ensuring more coverage if you’re in public.

One Shoulder

The asymmetrical design of a one-shoulder nursing swimsuit provides easy access to the breast for nursing. Moms can simply lower the shoulder strap (or untie it if it’s adjustable!) on the side they intend to nurse, allowing for discreet and convenient breastfeeding without having to remove the entire swimsuit. Plus, the one-shoulder design offers support and coverage that many nursing mamas prefer.


A woman wearing a striped zip-front nursing swim top

A zip-front nursing swim top is a practical choice for obvious reasons! This style features a front zipper, allowing you to adjust the opening for breastfeeding while providing a trendy and sporty look. Opt for high-quality zippers and durable fabric, and you’re in business.

Runner-Ups: Wrap-Style and Deep V-Neck

Similar to many nursing bras, a wrap-style nursing swimsuit is a great alternative. The wraparound design allows for easy access on both sides. A deep V-neck style also grants easy access. Our only qualm with these styles is the low-cut design, leaving chances for a different kind of spillage with your changing breast size. If ample coverage is not a worry to you, then go for it! We love to see a postpartum mama with confidence at the pool. If you want more modest options, however, Lime Ricki has got you covered—literally.

Nurse Confidently with Lime Ricki

Being a breastfeeding mom doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style for nursing swimwear. At Lime Ricki, we carry modest, nursing-friendly swimsuits that prioritize both fashion and functionality. Whether you prefer a tankini, wrap-style, zip-front, or one-piece swimsuit, there's a perfect option for every mom. Plus, unlike maternity swimwear, a nursing swimsuit is something you can wear well into the future!

Embrace your postpartum body with confidence, and enjoy precious moments by the water with your little one in tow. Dive into comfort and style with these handpicked nursing-friendly swimsuits, making your beach days even more enjoyable.

Enjoy Comfort and Style with the Lime Ricki Crew Neck Sweatshirt

As sweater weather finally returns, we have to share perfect blend of comfort and style in our Lime Ricki sweatshirt!

The Lime Ricki Crew Sweatshirt

Let's dive right in to all the features and benefits of the Lime Ricki Crew Neck Sweatshirt with a review of its comfort, design, and durability.

Comfort and Fit

The first thing that grabs your attention with the Lime Ricki Crew is its inviting, oversized fit. The relaxed silhouette is designed for ultimate comfort, allowing you to move freely without feeling restricted. Whether you're lounging at home or heading out for a casual outing, the roomy fit of this sweatshirt adds an extra layer of ease to your day. The sustainably grown USA cotton content contributes to its softness, but it is blended with polyester to enhance durability, ensuring that the sweatshirt retains its shape and form even after multiple washes. Pill-resistant air jet yarn also provides a smooth and soft texture, helping to avoid pilling and maintaining a fresh look for longer periods.

Design and Style

Fashion meets function in the design of the Lime Ricki Crew. The light pink hue is versatile and pairs easily with many other shades and pieces from our collections to create different outfits. The "Lime Ricki" embroidery adds a playful and chic element to the sweatshirt, and the embroidery is done with precision and high-quality craftsmanship, ensuring that it remains intact even after numerous wears and washes.

The crewneck design is a timeless classic, offering a versatile neckline that suits a range of accessories and complements different face shapes. It provides a balanced look, allowing for the perfect showcase of your favorite jewelry or scarf. This sweatshirt is a must-have for anyone who values comfort without compromising on fashion.


One of the standout features of the Lime Ricki Oversized Crew Neck Sweatshirt is its demonstration of our commitment to sustainability. With sustainably and fairly grown USA cotton, this sweatshirt supports ethical practices and responsible sourcing. By choosing this product, you're contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly fashion industry. And isn’t that what we’re all aiming to do?


Durability is a crucial aspect when investing in clothing, and the Lime Ricki oversized crew doesn't disappoint. The polycotton blend ensures the sweatshirt remains resilient and retains its shape over time. Pill-resistant air jet yarn further enhances its longevity, making it a reliable piece in your wardrobe for seasons to come.

Affordability and Value

Beyond its outstanding features, the Lime Ricki sweatshirt offers remarkable value at an affordable price of only $39.50. Striking a balance between quality, comfort, and style, this sweatshirt stands as a testament to accessible fashion without compromising on sustainability. The price tag reflects not only the craftsmanship and materials but also our dedication to making ethical choices accessible to a wider audience. Investing in this sweatshirt means investing in a product that aligns with your values, ensuring you get exceptional value for every dollar spent.

How a Crew Neck Sweatshirt Helps Us Give Back

Each purchase of a Lime Ricki sweatshirt is a great way to support us as a brand and help us continue to complete the charitable work that we do all year round. We’re so thrilled each time you purchase a sweatshirt from us because it means we get to keep giving back to the causes that are near and dear to our hearts! One of these charities is called Charity Water, and a portion of your purchase goes toward providing clean drinking water to developing nations. Learn more about the charities we support and how we're giving back.

The Lime Ricki Crew is a harmonious blend of comfort, style, sustainability, and durability. Its oversized fit and soft, high-quality fabric make it a go-to choice for all-day wear, while the light pink color and embroidered "Lime Ricki" detailing add a fashionable touch. The use of sustainably sourced materials also showcases our commitment to a greener future. If you're in search of a versatile and environmentally conscious sweatshirt, the Lime Ricki crew sweatshirt is an excellent choice that won't disappoint!

Packing List: Best Swimsuits for Summer Getaways

Whether your summer vacation involves a tropical island, a mountain getaway, or a city adventure, we've got you covered with the ultimate packing list to make your trip unforgettable. From the best swimsuits for summer to chic swimwear accessories, our guide has everything you need to enjoy your sun-drenched holiday. And don't just take our word for it – we put this list to the test on our recent getaway for The Sisters Collection photoshoot, where we modeled our new mix and match swimwear. So rest assured, our tips are tried and true!

  1. Outfits: When packing your outfits, prioritizing comfort and versatility will help you make the most of your trip. Choose a selection of lightweight tops such as tank tops, t-shirts, and loose blouses, which you can pair with shorts, skirts, or trousers. Versatile sundresses are also great for transitioning from day to night. And don’t forget pajamas!

  2. Undergarments: When packing undergarments, opt for breathable fabrics to stay comfortable in the heat. Nude or seamless options are ideal for wearing under light-colored or sheer clothing. You’ll also want to pack a few pairs of comfortable and supportive bras or bralettes that suit different outfit styles, and a few pairs of socks.

  3. Swimwear: As long as you're traveling when it's warm, pack at least one swimsuit just in case. Even if lounging by the pool isn't on your itinerary, you may find that you need a rest day from the jet lag, and the perfect place to spend it is by the water! This keeps you from having to spend quite a bit of money on a swimsuit at a store in a different country, or worse, a hotel gift shop, where you have limited options and a high price tag. Check out our mix and match swimwear (link 2) to find the best swimsuits for summer!

  4. Toiletries: Depending on your accommodation, you may not need to bring all your toiletries. Hotels usually provide shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner, but if you're renting a place, you'll need to pack these items yourself. Regardless of where you stay, remember to bring any additional necessities like contact lenses and solution, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, mouthwash, facial cleansers, razors, hairspray, brushes, deodorant, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, hair tools, and makeup.

  5. Shoes: When packing for a trip, choose neutral shoes that can be worn with multiple outfits to save space. Bring a pair of hiking boots or sneakers for physical activities and heels or wedges for dinner. If you’ll be hitting the beach or pool, some comfortable slides are always a good idea – shop our accessories page to see our options. Packing minimally and focusing on versatility will help keep your luggage light!

  6. Medications: If you take medication, make sure you pack enough for your trip. You'll also want to bring pain and cold/allergy meds, and any supplements or vitamins you take.

  7. Electronics and Chargers: If you are packing an e-book reader, tablet, or laptop, make sure to pack the chargers for those along with your phone charger. If you plan on hiking or exercising, you may want to bring headphones or a watch.

Your getaway essentials will vary depending on your trip, but this is a good start to your packing list. Now that you’re armed with the perfect list, you're ready to embrace the sun and make unforgettable memories on your summer vacation. Whether you're lounging on sandy shores, trekking through lush landscapes, or immersing yourself in local culture, these summer getaway essentials will ensure you have a stress-free and fashionable vacation!

Trending: Peplum Tankinis That Look Good

With summer in full swing, it's time to show off those stunning curves and soak up the sun in style! And if you're on the hunt for a swimsuit that combines fashion and functionality, look no further than the peplum tankinis from Lime Ricki. Not only do these swimsuits come in a range of sizes to suit every body type, but they also offer a fantastic way to embrace the season while staying supported. In this post, we’ll explain why the peplum tankini is the ultimate plus size swimwear piece that’ll have you feeling comfortable and confident, no matter where you are!

What is a Peplum Tankini?

A peplum is a flared ruffle or extension of fabric attached to the waistline of a top, dress, or in this case, a tankini. Imagine a chic and playful ruffle that starts at your waist and gently flows outward, adding a touch of grace and charm to your swimwear. It's like a built-in accessory that not only looks fantastic but also serves a purpose. The peplum's strategic placement does wonders in accentuating your waist while offering some coverage around the belly area. It's all about embracing your curves, feeling comfortable, and looking stylish at the same time.

Now, let's talk about the magic touch a peplum flare brings to our tankinis. If you have a love-hate relationship with your belly area, peplum is about to become your new best friend. The cleverly designed peplum ruffle around the waist adds a playful and flirty flair to the swimsuit, while also providing some extra coverage. Whether you want to conceal a little belly pooch or simply prefer a more flowy silhouette, our peplum tankinis have got you covered.

Are Peplum Tops Good for Plus-Sized Women?

Here at Lime Ricki, we understand the struggle that plus-sized women deal with when swimsuit shopping, and decided to change that experience for the better. That's why our peplum-style tankinis are available in a wide range of sizes, ensuring that everyone can find their perfect fit. Say goodbye to the stress of squeezing into a swimsuit that just doesn't feel right, and instead, embrace your body as it is and enjoy the comfort and confidence that a peplum tankini can offer!

Picture this: You’re lounging by the pool, sipping on a cool drink, and feeling like a million bucks. That's the kind of confidence boost that Lime Ricki peplum swim tops can offer. As you slip into one of these beauties, you'll notice how the strategically placed ruffle skims over any areas you might be self-conscious about. But don’t worry, it's not just about hiding – our designs are meant to accentuate your best features and embrace your body with open arms!

We designed a wide range of peplum tankinis to suit your personal style. From flirty floral prints to classic solids that exude elegance, there's something for everyone. Mix and match tops and bottoms to create your own unique combination and truly make the swimsuit your own!

Embrace Your Curves with Lime Ricki Plus Size Swimwear

How to Care for Your Swimsuit to Make It Last

We take pride in the quality of our swimwear, but we also recommend treating your swimsuits delicately to make them last after long exposure to pool chemicals and the sun. Unfortunately, we can’t control how much chlorine your local pool uses in the water (and they probably use lots!) but we can give your some of our tips to help make your swimwear last longer. We love our customers and we want you to get the most you can out of our suits! 

Our Best Tips to Help Your Swimsuits Last Longer

TIP #1: Hand Rinse and Hang Dry - No machine washing or drying

You really, truly, cannot put your Lime Ricki in the washing or drying machine. We have seen countless encounters of those things ruining swimwear. Instead, take your suit with you in the shower and let it soak in the cold water for a couple seconds, then hang it on your shower head to dry. Easy!

 TIP #2: Now I know we just told you to let your swimsuit air dry. But don’t leave swimwear out in the sun to dry! Heat, chemicals like chlorine, and direct sunlight can make colors fade in only a matter of hours. Here's a bonus tip:

How do you prevent bathing suit colors from fading?

Add two tablespoons of vinegar to a quart of cold water and soak your suit in the mixture for half an hour. This is an old trick that isn’t necessary, but will give you great results.

TIP #3: When wet suits sit together in a bag for hours the colors may bleed onto each other!

For those who love pastel, white, or cream swimsuits this is especially important to keep in mind. If you love mix and match swimwear, you can also bag your swim tops and bottoms separately with like colors.

TIP #4: Avoid sand at the beach! (Just kidding!) We love sand.. but also hate when it gets in our suits! Read our step-by-step guide on How To Remove Sand From Swimwear for detailed instructions to get sand out of your swimsuit.

TIP #5: Be careful not to rub your suit against the cement, rocks, or even wooden docks when laying or sitting by the water. Rough surfaces are usually the cause of bumpy and fuzzy snags known as pilling, but these surfaces can also rip or tear your swimwear.

  • A Tasty Spread: Food is obviously a pool party essential, so whip up some delicious snacks and refreshing drinks to keep everyone fueled and hydrated. From fresh fruit platters to ice-cold lemonades, the options are endless!

  • Sunscreen Stations: Set up sunscreen stations around the pool area so your guests can protect their skin from harmful UV rays. They’ll appreciate the thoughtful touch!

  • Pool Floats and Games: Ramp up the excitement by offering entertaining floats and games for your guests. Whether it's a massive inflatable unicorn or a game of water volleyball, these activities will keep the fun times rolling.

  • Towels and Shade: Make sure you have plenty of towels for your guests to dry off and relax in the shade when they need a break from the sun.

Attending a Pool Party? Here’s What You Should Bring

If you're the lucky invitee, it's time to pack your pool bag with everything you'll need for a splashing good time. Here’s what to bring:

  • Stylish Swimsuit: Rock your Lime Ricki swimsuit of choice and get ready to make a statement! Whether it's a one-piece, swim dress, or modest tankini, you know you’ll look and feel fantastic.

  • Sun Hat and Sunglasses: Protect yourself from the sun's rays with a trendy sun hat and a pair of fabulous sunglasses. Not only will you look chic, but you'll also shield your eyes and face from the sun.

  • Beach Bag: A spacious beach bag is a must-have to carry your essentials—think sunscreen, a beach towel, your phone, and some lip balm.

  • Hydration Station: Stay refreshed by bringing a reusable water bottle to fill throughout the day. Staying hydrated is key, especially when you're having a blast under the sun!

  • Cover-Up: For moments when you want to take a break from the water and enjoy some light snacks, throw on one of our stylish swim cover ups for a touch of elegance. Shop our collection of sarongs + coverups to find some seriously adorable pieces!

Classic Swim Style Comparison: Dress vs Skirt

Classic Swim Style Comparison: Dress vs Skirt

This season we had two classic swim silhouettes that left us wondering which is better: a skirt or dress?

Trends come and go so quickly, sometimes we feel like we're barely grasping them before they slip away and become “so last year”. Which is why we usually opt for classic swim style: timeless pieces that will contribute to your wardrobe year in and year out. So here's our review of each option, considering both as swimsuits with the silhouette of a minidress.

Style Comparison: Swim Dress vs. Swim Skirt

There is something so classic and timeless about a modest one-piece swimsuit, don’t you think? We certainly do! The inspiration behind the Lime Ricki Swim Dresses came from classic swim styles in the earliest decades of women's swimwear designs.

Explore our blog for more on the fascinating history of women's swimwear.

Our first swim dress was our classic Black Swim Dress, which remains a best-selling option. But we love to see our swim dress in fun florals and chic polka dots too. With an A-line hem and spaghetti straps, the swim dress is modest and does not hug curves. This swim style will boost your confidence and magnify your cute, fresh sense of style. 

Our collection of modest swim skirts and shorts offers a wide variety of style and coverage options, all of which also come in extended sizes. High-waist swim skirts with flirty ruffle hems have been a Lime Ricki staple for a while. The swim skirt with bottoms is easily paired with any Lime Ricki swim top - a great piece to keep in your collection of mix and match swimwear!

This year we also released the Capri Classic Skirt with Bottoms as part of The Sisters Collection! (Plus some really cute one-pieces!) With a second silhouette, swim skirts will take the first round of this contest.

And we can't help but award some points for the convenience and versatility that two-piece swimwear offers during a long day at the beach, poolside, or on-the-go with kids at the waterpark.

Swim Skirts Win the All-Around

In a head-to-head comparison of two classic swim looks, dresses and skirts, swim skirt is the winner! We love having a full coverage swim bottom that we can mix and match with any swim top, or even wear as an everyday skirt. Let us know in the comments which one you like better: the classic skirt or the high-waist with ruffles.
