Here are a couple places to shop for suits that you can actually swim in and some suits that will just look good while you're lounging and soaking up some rays:
Old Navy has a bunch of swimsuits in stores now including colorful bikinis, tankinis and one-piece suits. I'm in love with this red two-piece, the print is just perfect:
I saw Target roll out their swimwear weeks ago (I believe it was snowing the day I noticed this). They have a bunch of spring-break styles as well as maternity and plus-size (so does OldNavy.com).
Yesterday while out shopping, I saw a bunch of cheap bikinis at both Forever 21 and H&M in fun, fresh prints. Act fast, these styles are selling out fast and while they may be restocked, they never stay on the racks for long.
I get the DownEast Basics catalog in the mail and noticed they have some supercute swimsuits under $40 that offer a little more coverage. Adorable!
The affordable online boutique Ruche recently launching swimwear on their site and while the current selection is limited, I expect to see more great styles in the days to come.
If you're looking for a designer swimsuit, The Outnet actually has some great deals. The Tibi bikini below, for example, is just $38.80 for the top and $39.60 for the bottom. Again, act fast if you see something you love because the deals on The Outnet don't last long.
If you like to try suits on in person (which I do), then check out Marshalls and TJ Maxx - both offer a great selection of suits, you just have to dig a little!
