    Lets be honest...MOST of our fiances are probably more excited about bikinis than they are about wedding dresses. Is anyone else doing some major pre-wedding bathing suit shopping?

    I'd like to get a monokini and a new bikini, and I'm hoping to find something white, and something a bit sexy (that I'll wear once my family is gone!).

    I'm trying my best to resist running out and buying hundreds of $200 bathing suits, so I'm wondering what the rest of you ladies are doing? Any specifically great finds out there?

    I guess this is basically a "post your bikinis!" thread, so post away!

      lol, great thread ideas!

      Admittedly, I'm planning on doing an "Oscar style change" -- so basically, a new suit for every pool appearance. To achieve this, I'm gradually stocking up on OP bathing suits from ... wait for it... WALMART!

      Then I'm splurging on two bikinis. FI and I are heading down a week early so a strapless Bandeau was a must:

      Anika | Anika Beaded Front Bandeau Bikini at ASOS (I love the purple!)

      And then, of course, a really great white one to rock out during wedding week! I love the personalized "Bridal Bikinis"

        I love that personalized bikini!!! I really really want it, but they don't have my size
        Bookmarking and hoping it comes back in stock!

          Victoria's Secret is having a pretty good sale on bikinis.
          Victoria's Secret - $29 & Up Bikinis

          I got two there on clearance pretty cheap. You have to hunt around a bit for sizes and such.

          Ash ~ I love that you are doing "Oscar" changes. That's too cute!

            I bought 3 from Vix a couple months back when they posted their spring line (I posted a 25% coupon on this site somewhere that is my VIP discount so other ladies could use).

            I am still looking for a cute Mrs. suit in white.

              I wish. That's all Bermuda needs is my body rolling around on the beach in a bikini. I'm getting married at West Whale Bay Beach. Seems appropriate now. But I am going to splurge like you all are if I lose this baby weight!

                To be honest after having a kid your boobs definitely aren't perky anymore so I HAVE to have a push-up bra and Victoria Secret seems to be the only one I can find that provide them!

                  I'm stuck w/ a small selection from VS and expensive bikinis. I have the mom boobs and they are DD so just trying to find a swimsuit that covers perky DD isn't fun. Not to mention its alway like they assume if you have DD you must be bigger around so all bandeaus are like 38 + all I want is a freakin cute bandeau that is 34DD and actually holds the mamas!!!!

                  I am really big on mixing and matching tops and bottoms!

                    ack, i just spent several hours looking at bikinis, and I kept seeing a bunch designed for DD's, but I totally ignored them b/c my flat little chest is somewhere between an A and a B! I'm off to bed, but I'll see if I can relocate some of them tomorrow (I also have a bunch of bathing suit pics to post, but I'm too tired to round them up right now).

                    I'm definitely going to have to make a big VS order. Between swimwear, lingerie, and cute dresses they have sooooooo much I want, and it's all well priced. I'm going to spend way too much money, but my FI is strangely supportive about this kind of stuff :P

                      Jacilyna!!! I am with you. I wear a 34DD and it is soooo hard to find swimsuits. I can only wear halter tops =( so I usually stock up at VS because those are the only ones that seem to fit. This seasons VS halters aren't that cute though! Ugh!

                      Everything But Water - The Swimwear Source, womens designer swimwear, separates, bathing suits, swim suits, bikinis, tankinis, beach wear, resort wear, cover ups and more. -they have really cute Betsey Johnson swimsuits and they have the Sports Illustrated swimwear!
