Tips for Shopping for Swimwear

Gathering information for this post made it pretty clear that shopping for swimwear is a task no one looks forward to. We also learned that proper coverage and good support are important features. With that in mind, we think you'll find the Perfect Fit Finder Menu at the bottom of the Everything but Water homepage pretty helpful. Check your personal needs within the "bust", "bottom",  "tummy" and "additional needs" categories, and then click "see your selections" for a myriad of options!

Size up. It is very common to need to size up with swimwear so we recommend reading the sizing charts and reviews before ordering.

Never leave any retail stone unturned! Land's End has been one of Mary's favorite swimwear brands to wear and recommend for years. She loves the bra-like support and ease of the tankini tops and the coverage of the skirted bottoms. They have lots of mix and match top/bottom options and the quality of fabric and construction stands the test of time. If you're "tired of pulling out wedgies," this is the suit for you!  Land's End also wins the award for most inclusive sizing, offering: regular, plus, petite, tall, and tall plus!

Thanks for reading and happy travels!
