Dear ladies of the 100 Hour Board,
Where do you find modest swimming suits? How about inexpensive swimsuits? Please list as many stores as you can think of!!
-Haven't gone swimming in over 18 months
I use competition Speedos mostly for swimming laps, but they occasionally have cute patterns I like and get for normal suits. Buy them in the off season for big discounts.
Target is usually my go to for lounging suits. My current favorite suit I got like 3 years ago and it has held up really well.
I bought a suit off of Amazon for the first time a few weeks ago. It was cheap, which was nice, but not exactly what I wanted. I'll keep it to tan, but that's about it. I always look at the pictures of people in the suits so I can get a better idea of what they look like on real people.
My mom also swears by Lands End and shops there exclusively. They have quite a few styles and cute designs!
Downeast also has a good collection that you can look through.
In my opinion, it's worth spending more on a suit you love than buying a new, cheap suit every year once it falls apart. Keep your suit in good shape by hand washing it or washing it on a delicate cycle, line/hang drying it, and avoiding sitting on concrete and rough surfaces that can pick at the bottom.
