Because I love you, because I want you all to look great in a swim suit this summer, because I want you all to find an affordable swim suit, and one which you did not have to spend 1000 hours searching for, I am going to share my discovery with you. I was looking for a modest swim suit, one that didn't cost a fortune, and I HIT THE JACKPOT.
Modest tankinis? Check.
Three piece tankinis (skirt included)? Check.
Boyshort tankinis? Check.
Boyshort bikinis (great for covering up that pesky bottom half while accentuating the top half)? Check.
And if you are into bikinis, but worry about the more jiggly parts, they have full coverage bottom bikinis.
And if you just want a skimpy bikini, or one of those cutaway one pieces that only look good on 13 year olds, well they have those too.
Two years ago I spent $59 for the top and $35 for the skirt and $29 for the bottom of the swim suit I wore 3 times before I somehow lost it. For that price, I could have bought four different bathing suits at.....
MARINA WEST (only available at Amazon, evidently).
Most of their swim suits are between $25-45 for the complete 2 or 3 piece set!
And don't say I never did anything for you. (Just don't show up anywhere I go with the one I got, or you're dead.)
p.s. If none of Marina West's 157 options floats your boat, and you really want to pay 3x as much, you can also try:
Shade Clothing (who may or may not actually have cute swim suits but I can't tell because their swimsuit model has such a horrible body for swimsuits!)and
Rey Swimwear (be warned--they have gaggy Christian rock playing when you first open the site.)
Oh, and Mom? Here are a couple for you...
