I am on a mission to find something to wear for both the wedding week and the honeymoon. Because my dress is strapless, I want to find a nice bandeau style suit so I don't have to worry about tan lines. But that's my problem to deal with!

    Anyway, I am aware of the obvious sites and listed some below, but what other great sites am I missing? I don't mind spending a little more $$ for a good quality suit, but I don't want to spend a ton of $$ just for a designer label!

    JCrew: J.Crew > women's > shop by category > swimfinder

    Victoria's Secret: VictoriasSecret.com Swimwear - Bikinis, Tankinis, One-piece & Two-piece Swimsuits

    Venus Swimwear: Venus.com 2007 Sexy Swimwear - Mix and Match Bathing Suits

    Bluefly: Bluefly - Big Discounts On Fashion Designer Womens Swimsuits At Bluefly
    Okay, please tell me who in thier right mind, no matter how rich they are, would pay $405 not including tax for a towel. I am in shock. Could not stay to look at the swimsuits after that shocker. lol

      I just bought a cute bathing suit from target, 28 dollars! I am going to check out VS, I love all the suits that have been posted from there. I wish I could get strapless, but the girls would be down to my waist, I totally need a halter top!

            I just bought a bikini top from J.Crew and it came out to $7.99. Granted I have no matching bottoms, but that is okay b/c I usually like to mix and match my bikinis. I love J.Crew swim suits they are nice and small so they stay on well.

              The swim suit color is growing on me. It's a purple isn't it? (reason I ask I think I may be a tad bit color blind) LOL
              I bought this suit last summer. It's black

              It's really cute on and fits pretty true to size.

              I like this site CeaSwim | Collection 2007 . I bought one of their suits at a fashion coop last spring. It was cheap and super cute! Well constructed, too.

              another great place to look is www.dianesbeachwear.com

                It's supposed to be more common in men apparently....but if it makes you feel any better I thought that it was navy hehe

                  OMG! I was ranting in another thread about not wanting tan lines and was going to get a strapless top but still resented the fact that my cleavage wouldn't match if I wore a low cut top later.

                  WELL, I found this and some of them are not the most stylish, but some I like and I am super excited:

                  Solar Tan Thru Swimsuits All-over Tan Thru Swimwear for Women and Men

                  Anyone ever wore one?
