How Much Do You Spend On a Swimsuit?

On average...

where i live, i'm in a bikini nearly every summer day, so it's worth the extra $$ for suits that will last AND look amazing. for under $50, suits are usually un-lined and ill-fitting.

It depends, most of the time I just keep one or two and stick with them since I know that it's going to be the same come next year.

malia mills (maliamills.com) suits cost over 100 but they are so worth it! i have never felt so comfortable in a swimsuit as i did when i wore one of hers last summer. the best thing is they all kind of mix 'n' match, so i can buy just one piece this year and mix it in with the two from last year. just go try them on if you have a store in your town - love love love!

I don't think I've spent over $100 on a suit. Even if it was for doing laps. I have too many suits.. if I spent over a $100 on all of them... I'd be broke!

i can't purchase cheap swimsuits b/c i don't have the body shape to accomodate what i find at Target, H&M, etc. My suit is a Perry Ellis and I even think it was on sale but it fits perfectly and really flatters me. I know I'll be wearing it for a few more seasons before even THINKING of trying on swimsuits again.

I spend around $90.00. Sometimes I spend more and sometimes a tad less. It depends on what I fall in love with.

I learned my lesson when I begged for a $80 swimsuit when I was in high school. I wore it for the first time to a friends pool party. She thought there wasn't enough chorine in the pool. So instead of measuring it - she just dumped some in. Well it was a black suit – and well…..after I took it off and rinsed it in the sink – it turned a very ugly shade of brown with orange blotches. I was so upset. So from then on – my swimsuits come from Target. I figure trends come and go and if you take good care of them, they can last a couple summers.

I always wait until mid summer when they're all one sale and buy a few.

i know! it´s a swimsuit. the past year i bought regular swimwear, but this year i want to buy one mor expensive, ok, if you have one expensive and more regular, you can wear the nice one in a special ocassion, or with special people.

Now it depends on what type of body you have. Yeah, before kids I could get away with a cheaper one because I didn't worry too much about things to cover or not jiggle. Now, I find suits about $100 that are good quality and help me stay put and support nicely.

I have to spend a lot of money on bathing suits for boob support. Those little triangle thingles won't cover anything. haha

under $50, are you kidding? i get pissed when i see separates around $30 each. however, i'd spend more than that if the swimsuit was beautiful and made me look drop-dead-gorgeous!

You can find good ones at target but they won't last... I just got a Vix from saks and it's awesome and i feel more comfortable in it. I don't wear one thattt much so I don't see a need to shell out big $ but if it's cute, it's totally worht the price.
