Summer is in full swing, and it's a hot one this year!
If you're like us, we're spending most of this summer in our swimsuits bouncing from one water activity to another. Which is why you should probably have a few different swimsuits on hand. Shopping for swimwear is a lot like shopping for jeans. It takes a lot of effort to find one that fits great.
When we hurriedly buy a couple suits a few days before our vacation we are way more likely to keep something we don't actually love. We say "it'll do" and throw it in the suitcase. But then the next time we have a fun poolside day planned, we open the swim drawer and aren't excited about any of the suits we see. To avoid this I have a couple quick tips.
Shop for suits EARLY. I start shopping for swimwear in January and February, which may be a little early for your taste. March and April are great months to start your search while the stores have their biggest inventory of swimwear. After the end of April, there's not near as many sizes left.
If you're shopping for suits online buy at least five in hopes to secure one that you love. Don't shop for swimwear online unless you're prepared to deal with shipping back a return. Online shopping has a return rate of 50%. So half of all clothing that is purchased online is returned. I predict this number is 4-5x higher for swimwear. So if you're planning to buy your suit online, buy a lot of different cuts and a lot of different sizes, and hopefully you'll secure one suit that looks and fits great! SEND ALL THE REST BACK!
