The swimsuit catalog is named 'Everything But Water". I'm a bit confused about the meaning of this phrase. Does it mean "All you need is water"?

In the phrase "everything but water", but means except:

Except; apart from; other than. (Lexico)

It might mean that they're selling everything you need to go swimming except for the water itself.
