    bathing suits are way overpriced in aruba shops.
    that being said there are many many shops at the resorts and downtown and in the hi rise area that have lovely suits.
    about 10 years ago i did buy a gottex suit (i could not live without it) at one of the shops across from the palm beach hotels. (not in a mall)

    i have also been using www.swimsuitsforall.com

    There are some shops downtown behind the mall that are a little more reasonably priced. But if cost is not an issue you will find tons of cute little stores at every resort.

    Don't know why I didn't see this thread previously but I had to add that SWIMSUIT SHOPPING IS THE MOST DEPRESSING TYPE OF SHOPPING TO DO. THANK YOU VOGUE, COSMO AND VANITY FAIR.

    I have found that many of the swim shops at the hotels/beach area seem to cater to the "skinny/i only eat salads/have perfect hair on the beach/get me a $10 drink please cross-section of visitors (not said to be offensive; and kudos to you if you can fit into the barbie sized suits, I have a friend who can But, the tiny suits that carry huge price tags are not for the fluffy/i love my desserts/ponytail/byob ladies.

    That being said, I've often seen the tiny suits on larger bodies and it takes a day or two once I get to Aruba to realize no one cares how people look in a swimsuit. You'll usually see it all at one point or another.

    In answer to the original question, I would buy suits prior to going to the island. As with any tourist location they cost big bucks, sometimes jaw dropping big bucks.

    I agree with CindyO, I love my Lands End suits. They are good quality and worth the price, especially the end of season sales. I am on our boat every weekend and they get machine washed regularly and still hold their shape and durability.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Me THREE! Love my Lands End suits. Mix and match separates for perfect sizing. They have most suits on sale right now with limited size availability, but their new shipments begin in November.
