I am going on vacation in 2 weeks and need a new bathing suit. I want a high quality one that will suck and tuck it all in! So needless to say i'm not a size 0 so I can't pick one up just anywhere but def. want something flattering and stylish. I know there is one in Southpark mall but they didn't have very much. Any other good bathing suit shops with quality suits?
I can't buy something from online. I have to be able to try it on.

I tend to like what Pac Sun has to offer some of the suits seem more velvety strong than than feeling like it a dish cloth. I dont know if that is best analogy. I just wish they had "sales" like the other stores do or when I am shopping put a sale on for me lol.

Miraclesuit, Google it.

I prefer 1940s/1950s vintage bathing suits that basically have a built in girdle though. I'm pretty skinny, but those old suits shape you like no other. Gotta do Ebay for those and the cute ones get pricey.

If you take your measurements correctly you should be able to buy online. Just a thought

You can order through the catalog at sears and pay no shipping. Also, if you need to return a catalog purchase, you can do it at Sears.
The very thought of putting on a bathing suit depresses me!!

Does Sears carry Lands End bathing suits in the store? That is my favorite, a bit pricey, but the extra control and skirted version are my best bets.
I just picked up two very reasonable suits at Marshall's this week, like $12.99 and $16.99 a piece, one was a Nike.

Dick's has a surprising selection. There are lots of different styles/cuts, and I was able to find some nice stuff.
Is it just me, or does swimsuit season come earlier every year? Or maybe I'm just more unprepared...

I just thought I would mention that the Sears store located in Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, NC has all of their Lands End swimwear (bathing suits) and accessories at 30 percent off! (plus if you sign up for a Sears credit card you will receive an extra $10 off your statement, (OR) they also have a Master Card where you will receive $15 off your purchase)
