      you're quite welcome - i liked the look of the Salinas suits too (not sure I had ever heard of them), so I googled "Salinas Swimwear" and came up with a few more sites as well. Which one are you getting?

        so hard to decide!!! there are 3 or 4 i really like! do you know if swimoutlet lets you return? i couldn't find it on their website, i've never ordered from them before.

        i think i'll order a bandeau top and a triangle top with bottoms that tie on the side. i'll post what i get once i make up my mind...

          i haven't ordered from them - so i don't know. i may look into it though - they have some cute stuff, and some of the prices aren't bad.

            ok, talk about an impulse buy! i just bought 2 - free shipping for over $75 and you can return within 30 days. I got these:

            Salinas Goa Triangle Suit at SwimOutlet.com

            Salinas Trip Triangle Tie Two Piece at SwimOutlet.com

            Not sure how they will look... but SOO much easier to buy on line than having to try them on in a store. I'll let you know once I get them!

            I also got this bandeau one from a store last week for half price - (it's cute on)

              Anny - I love those suits. Very nice! Have you ever ordered a VS bikini before? I think i may order the "black" one above but I'm clueless on the sizes to go by on their chart?

              If I go by the charts I'm between x-small and small on top and between small and medium on the bottom so I ordered the top on small and the bottom on medium.. I'll tell you how it turns out when they arrive.. I'm concerened about it..

                Yuck swimsuits!

                No seriously, those swimsuits are HOT! Anny I love the second one you posted. I have had some good luck with JCrew's 2 peices int he past.. in fact I still have a bottom somewhere from liek High school!

                Anyway these days I am all about the tankini - I love that if I feel self-conscious I can keep the shirt down and if I want to tan my belly I can just hike it up!

                  Anyone at all considering getting one with "the bride" or "mrs. ..." or "just married across the bottom? Or is that so gauche? I am totally toying with the idea of doing that.

                    Laura, I think I will order one of those swimsuits just to be festive . . . I already ordered the flip flops that imprint "just married" in the sand so I may as well complete the look. There aren't too many times in life where it's cool to be corny

                      ugh, I know I want to pick up a couple of swimsuits as well. And I also have a strapless dress,, well kindof... So I need to get one that won't give me tan lines.. However I have two problems, one I have bigger boobs so I like my swim tops to have some support. And second I like the string side bikini bottoms because I hate my legs and those tend to make my legs look smaller. (IMO at least) So girls keep posting your swim pics, and hopefully if I find one that I really like you girls won't grab them all before they sell out.. lol
