    Default Where to find swimsuits for me?

    I'd really like a couple of new swimsuits, but I'm having the hardest time! Last time I bought swimsuits I got Lands End tankinis (which I very much like, and have worn for 5+ years). But now that our Sears closed and I no longer have a place to either try them on or easily return them with no charge it's not as good of an option. I also had a Nike suit I really liked, but their current styles are not my style.

    I'd love a place I can try on in person, but at a minimum I need free shipping and free returns. I'm printing out labels today to return all 7 of the options I ordered from Amazon because only 1 of them even came close to fitting...

    I'm usually a size small and do not like low cut tops (don't need high necks, just not a ton of cleavage!) or bottoms that ride up. Ok with either tankini or one piece, but no bikinis. Where should I start?

    Athleta - I held off and now my fave! I reach for them over my LE suits.

    Sounds like a trip to the "big mall" to try things on at Athleta is in order! If I don't find something I love there I'll also check out Lole.

    Athleta has more online. I would buy online. Free shipping over $50.

    I just got the cutest, most flattering one-shouldered suit on SummerSalt. https://www.summersalt.com/

    I like Carve designs. I also scroll through Zappos and order a bunch every year and return most. But there are lots to choose from which I like.

    There is a good chance I will end up doing that, but I want to have a baseline idea of how the brand fits me before I guess on what to order.

    I have two Athleta bikinis that I bought 3 years ago and I love them! I bought them both in the store fwiw during the swim clearance so pickings were a little slim, but I was able to find sized tops which tend to fit better for me.

    I also have a tankini from Boden that is nice as well and maybe from 2012 but I do prefer the Athleta suits.
