I know there are places to buy swimsuits on the island, but is there a place I should definitely check out? Many styles? Great prices?

I have one old bathing suit, I've shrunk out of my other ones (lost weight). And boy don't they yank those suits out of the stores early up here in New England!!! I couldn't find anything when I went looking back in Sept.

LaLinda department store downtown has some suits.
The resorts have shops with bathing suits and seems to me the prices are high.

Have you checked the Lands End or LLBean catalogs?
I just got 4 suits from Lands End.
We live in FLA, and the bathing suits have been out of the stores since early august :-(

Not sure what part of New England your from but there is a year round bating suit store down the cape. I think in Hyanis. If your near there I will at the Cape next weekend and will get the address for you.

Thanks Bill, but I'm in Central Mass and Hyannis is a bit of a hike. But I will check out the online links posted here.

I'm hesitant to order a swimsuit online just because the fit is so important..kinda like shoes, you really have to try them on to see if they are going to work.

Ah! Wrentham! I could see myself driving there in the next month. Thanks!

I've purchased a b'suit from Red Sail Sports downtown near the cruise port . . . maybe the Hilfiger store downtown too? Michael

There is a bathing suit store at the Wrentham Outlets that you may want to check out if it's not too much of a drive for you. It can be pretty pricey but they have a great selections and the quality is high. Good luck with your search. You could always try Venus or Vikki's on-line if you are pretty sure of your new size. Congratulations on shrinking out of your current suits! :) I wish I could do the same.

I think 75% of the stores downtown have suits of some kind. Jewelry store excepted, of course.
