Default Swimsuit Woes

Hi:

I've been in every store in town looking for a new bathing suit for my upcoming cruise in March. I've come to the conclusion that we have the ugliest clothes I've ever seen in the town where I live. I found one that was exactly what I was looking for at Neiman Marcus on-line, but I don't trust ordering anything on the computer. I need to try everything on. I looked in store locators and they don't even have one in the state where I live. It is very frustrating. Every time they open a new mall, I hope that they will add a Nordstrom or N.M., but the best we get is Von Maur or Dillards and it's just not the same.

Happy Cruising......Anita/Buddy

Anita - Lands End has some great swimsuits,very good quality. they run true to size and you can even buy them as separates. Give it a try, you can always return it if it doesn't fit you.

The best part of ordering from Lands End is if it doesn't work out, you can return it to any Sears location and you don't have to pay shipping to ship it back to Lands End. They have the BEST suits! I just got one from them in their "overstocks" section and it was only $50!

Land's End has the best swimsuits ever made.

I'm a size 26, and, thus, I've always been kind of afraid of swimsuits However, I feel completely comfortable, and actually kind of attractive, in the Tugless Tank.

I don't doubt you'll find something fabulous there.

You might also try Travel Smith, they have some great swim suits and you can order them out of season too. I 've had great luck with their customer service.

AnitaBuddy,

I've been in every store in town looking for a new bathing suit for my upcoming cruise in March. I've come to the conclusion that we have the ugliest clothes I've ever seen in the town where I live. I found one that was exactly what I was looking for at Neiman Marcus on-line, but I don't trust ordering anything on the computer. I need to try everything on. I looked in store locators and they don't even have one in the state where I live. It is very frustrating. Every time they open a new mall, I hope that they will add a Nordstrom or N.M., but the best we get is Von Maur or Dillards and it's just not the same.

Major sporting goods stores, like The Sports Authority, usually have some swimsuits in stock all year because they are catering to dedicated athletes who train in indoor pools in the winter.

I've also had very good luck with LL Bean. The best swim suit I've ever purchased came from them. It fits perfectly and stays in place.

Do uou have a Burlington Coat Factory near you? I went to a number of places and tried on 50-60 bathing suits before I went there. They have styles I didn't see anywhere else...good quality in the $25 range.
