I liked A, but I can never get one like that to fit.....I need a long torso for a one piece, so I go with the Tankini and skirt. Now if I could wear the bikini, I would!

I'm just so happy now that there are so many new styles of swimwear. For years it was just the bikini or the one piece. I think the swimwear makers realize women come in all shapes and sizes.

I like the style of E, but I dont like the print.
I tried to wear one like A and C style but the skirt kept floating up in the water.

I like the white less is more one....bikinis are so hot looking. I can't wear them though.

I just bought a new suit yesterday. It has a halter bikini top and a brief , boy pants bottom. It all black. It is the first time in YEARS I have had a two piece suite. This one covers the problem areas. You girls know what I mean?

I guess my maturity is showing as I chose "E" as my favorite.

Maybe I'm too picky but I don't like any of them!
I prefer the 2-piece that looks like a 1-piece (tankini) because I hate having to get completely undressed to go to the bathroom!
I will not wear a bikini, and I will not wear those skirt things - ugh!

I let the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) pick, and without hesitation, she chose "A".

i like this one with some changes...instead of the whit on the top half maybe red and i dont care for the cut of the bottoms. i like the bottoms to have a high cut on the sides i think its called a french cut. i believe that if you got it flaunt so if i could wear a bikini i would but not that one. yuck! the ruffles have to go and if you have anything on top it would look like a bandaid. needs more style.

I vote for A, Macy's OPEN, OPEN, OPEN. No wait, that's Mervyn's.
Does one price get you both the bathing suit AND the gurl?

I like C. I would love to be able to wear the white one in orange, but I am beyond the little suite stage.

Donna, I completely agree about the one piece, and having to take the whole thing off. Especially when it is wet, and has salt water on it.

Although, one piece suits hide and hold in the mistakes, they are difficult to remove for certain necessary things that need done :o

I too like the tankinis.except some of the bottoms are not made for all bottoms.

Kohl's has some excellent sales going on right now!

I got this swimsuit for $15.00!

I like the colors on it but I'm not crazy about the skirted look. but for $15. I had to buy it.

I'm not sure yet I will be taking it on the cruise.
But I can always wear it to a pool party or something.



ALso got a warm winter jacket for only $30.
Check out Kohl's ladies! Going back there today.
