Default Poll-How Many Bathing Suits...

...Do you take for a seven day warm weather cruise? Nothing worse than pulling on a cold, clammy suit is there? I enjoy the sun and pool on the ship and water sports during the shore excursions, so I probably bring more than the norm. Four! But I bring less clothes, lol Oh, but then there's the "cover-ups"....

Four at an absolute minimum.

There are by-the-pool suits ... the industrial-grade dive suits ... and the parejos which cover up years of going to the buffet too many times.

Suits can be crammed into the corners of suitcases with no wrinkle effect.

And there is NOTHING worse than an icky, not-dried suit !!!

Ok, I just purchased my first bathing suit in 17 years. The last time I bought one was for the last cruise I went on. Gosh that ages me and shows how little fun I have had. . .Anyway, it was torture to buy one-how can you get 4???? BTW, I purchased the only suit that didn't make me want to cry so it was an easy choice for me.

Usually I only take one, but as a precaution maybe a 2nd. Most of the time I just get in the spa with the whirlpools and it self cleans. Hang it out on the balcony for a dry and it is ready for the next day. Of course there is always the hair drier for a quick dry.

Here's CruiseAholic's Rules of Swimsuits!

ONE for every day of the cruise (at a minimum), with matching shirts, and if room permits, take ONE extra, just in case you have to change during the day.

Cannot, and I repeat CANNOT be seen in the same suit TWO times during the same cruise!

Just one - it's the only one I could find that I'd be seen in public in (sniff, sniff). I've got quite a few in a bottom dresser drawer that didn't look too bad "once upon a time" and maybe someday I'll wear them again. But if not? I prefer to think of my personal expansion as more room to love hubby, the kids and the grandkids!
Have a great Friday all!

Oh you need at least 4 or 5, but I like to go along with cruiseaholics way....bathing suit with coverup to match.....and flip-flops too....at least 3 or 4 different pair....I don't like the thought of having to wear the same suit twice on the ship....but can always mix with different coverup and sandles

I take 3. Like Pamda, I have the industrial grade for snorkeling and the lighter ones for use on the ship. I always rinse it off in the shower and hang it up to dry. I hate putting on a damp swimsuit.

Take Care;

P.S. The 3 bathing suits don't include the 3 or 4 thongs I take. <VBG>

Hmpf. I have seen April in a bathing suit and I thought she looked plenty OK.

But, she's seen ME in one, too.

Psst, April ... don't tell !!!

two, one to dive in and one to just sun bath on the deck. of course at least 3 cover-ups, which stay on more often now than in the past due to the extra pounds i've picked up over the yrs.

Coordinated flip flops to match 02? Cool. Now that's an idea.

Two to 3 suits with matching cover-ups or pareao's. Of course, I have to buy one new one with cover-up before every cruise. My bottom draw has quite a selection too. Luckily, I belong to a Health Club with a pool, so get to wear the ones that aren't quite as lovely to the highly chlorenated pool all year round.
Bon Voyage

Interesting poll and I usually bring two, but I have four and may take them all for this Hawaii trip. However, they aren't all the same size so that may very well be wishful thinking! I probably can't get in all four and should try them on in the next 28 days! I might not be in the pool or ocean if I don't have a suit! Sue

I take TWO - one for the first few days...since I have been frantically dieting for my May cruise...and one a size larger that I can fit into the last day at sea when I look like a beached whale from eating non stop!
Same with clothe....slinky nighttime dresses for the first days and a short set one soze larger for last day and a COMFORTABLE flight home!!!

Like CruiseAholic, I need one for every day...almost. I take 5, sometimes 6, each with a matching pareo or skirt and sandals. Hey, these people on the deck see me every day. If I were at the beach, I could wear the same one all week.

Best place for "fancy" bathing suits ... the kind you wear around the pool ... is A.B.Lambdin

Not surprisingly, their website is <www.ablambdin.com>

They are "sensitive" to ladies whose bodies are no longer 21 years old.
