Fall is upon us and swimwear might be the last thing on your mind. We’re attending a destination wedding in Mexico next week so I went through my closet and tried on various swimsuits at home to see if anything still fit post-baby.
Not too surprising, but I decided I needed a new one piece swimsuit for our trip. I went to the mall and to my dismay, neither my local Macy’s nor Target are carrying swimwear any longer. I’m guessing warm weather cities like LA and Honolulu will still have swimwear year round, but cold Seattle does not!
Here’s what I found to be your best bets for finding swimwear in the Fall, if you need it for a trip or even just for indoor pool swimming!
1. Buy swimwear online!
Macys.com, Target.com, Nordstrom.com and Asos.com all have fairly large swimwear selections online. They aren’t as big as what you’d find in the spring, but there are still plenty of sizes and styles to choose from. As a bonus, because its the end of the season, there are a few things on clearance.
2. At the mall, go to Nordstrom
Nordstrom stores still carry some styles right now. I found a few suits that were on sale and a few that were regular priced. Again, the selection wasn’t as large as in the spring, but if you need something in a hurry this would be a good choice. There were one piece suits, two piece suits and cover ups all in stock.
3. Swimwear Specialty Store
At my local mall, there is a swimwear specialty store called Everything But Water. Since it specializes in swimwear, it should have suits all year round.
4. Sporting Goods Stores
If you’re looking for a more sporty suit (or don’t mind one), sporting goods stores like REI and Sports Authority may have a few styles left this time of year.
As for me, I ended up ordering a suit from Macys.com and it arrived with enough time for my trip. I tried on a few but this is the one I ultimately chose! It was quite flattering all around and I am excited for our trip! 🙂
