We won't tell.

Starfield companions. What would we do without them? They have our back in every battle, carry our weapons, scold us when we’re holding too much — you name it. What better way to reward them than swiping a swimsuit and offering them a delightful beach vacation?

Okay, let’s be real. That’s probably not why you’re here. You’re here to deck out Sarah Morgan or Sam Coe in as little clothing as possible. Luckily for you, players can outfit any Starfield companion* in a bikini or swim shorts, and all it takes is a quick trip to Paradiso. Here’s how to do it.

How to Find a Swimsuit (Bikini/Swim Shorts) in Starfield

  • Porrima-Starfield
  • Paradiso-Planet-Starfield

To find a Swimsuit in Starfield, head to Paridiso on Porrima II in the Porrima System. Our first exciting excursion is to the beach for a spot of shopping. Er, stealing.

From your ship, head toward the Paradiso Hotel. As compelling as the entrance looks, walk straight past it and toward the beach area. On your left, you’ll notice a white and blue circular building. Head straight in.

From the entrance, turn right to find two lockers. Inside, you should be able to discover at least one Swimsuit, as well as some casual Resort Wear. If not, keep trying the other circular houses on Paradiso.

You have no other option than to steal your Swimsuit, but crime is often necessary when it comes to fashion — or whatever your very real excuse is for seeking out a bikini.

Ensure you stay hidden while looting, and dress your companion as soon as possible to avoid being caught. Guards won’t stop you unless you have stolen goods directly in your inventory.

To dress your companion in their freshly pilfered swimwear, follow these steps:

  • Talk to your companion and select “Let’s trade gear.
  • Open your Inventory (LB on Xbox, Q on PC) and select the Swimsuit.
  • Return to your companion’s inventory (LB/Q) and navigate to the Swimsuit.
  • Select Equip (Y on Xbox, B on PC).

This will show a preview of your character wearing the outfit, but fret not; your companion will be wearing Starfield’s most revealing apparel as soon as you exit their inventory screen.

Lower your expectations if your mind is still fresh from a Baldur’s Gate 3 playthrough. As modeled by my in-game wife, Sarah Morgan, while my real-life partner wasn’t looking, Starfield’s swimsuit is perfectly modest. It also magically transforms into either a bikini or swim trunks, depending on the body type of the character wearing it.

Once equipped, companions will permanently wear the Swimsuit in any situation that doesn’t require a spacesuit. It can make for some very interesting trips to the Lodge, that’s for sure.

While you’re in Paradiso, check out our guide on finding Paradiso’s lost items. Returning them to Dirk at the hotel desk will net you a decent chunk of change and XP.
