    I’m a huge fan of Everything But Water in the Mall of America – tons of separates to choose from, organized by color, lots of cover-ups. All suits are of quality and have lasted me long after I stopped wearing them! A little pricey but well worth it!

    I love Nani Nalu! They have way more options then Everything but water and department stores combined. Plus, the sales people actually know what they are doing and really help make the dreaded swimwear shopping experience a positive, and dare I say it… fun one! Same prices as everywhere else, with free service – It’s the only place I shop for my suits!

    I went to buy one for my daughter 3 weeks ago for swimming lessons as she had out grown her older one, and NO ONE had any decent ones that would fit a slightly larger young girl.

    She was too big for the kids, and the ones that she would have fit into would only be proper for playboy; what a self esteem breaker for her! Needless to say, she was heart broken and wanted to quit shopping for one. We finally did find one, a little more expensive than I thought it should be, but she was happy with it.

    Come on stores, lets remember there are some young girls that aren’t models and don’t have model bodies, that would like to have a swimming suit, too, that doesn’t look like a string and a couple of leaves. I went to Target, Walmart, and Kohls…nothing was decent, and Kohls was way out of the ballpark on what they were charging—come on, $60+ for a little girls smimsuit???? I was, however, told by the manager that I should come back on one of their sales. Frankly, they have more sales there than they don’t have sales, so I was surprised to see I was not there on a sale day. And, what ever happened to having a “fair price” off of the get go to get–and KEEP–loyal customers?


    For decent swinsuits for girls and the entire family try LANDS END available in most sears stores, online and inlets and outlets as well. They have appropriate suits for women and girls that are great quality.

    You want variety? Swim ‘N Sport definitely has it. I’m a big fan of tankinis and they have many to choose from; from different colors, styles, prints, etc. Best of all, Swim ‘N Sport makes everything easier to shop because I can purchase everything I need for the beach in one stop. They have several locations and you can also shop on their website
