Hey everyone! I've recently gotten the idea to start swimming at the Y. However, I know it's almost winter and many stores aren't carrying swimwear. I've checked out specialty stores but found the prices to be a bit out of my range.
Does anyone know a place to get a one piece basic suit for under $30? I'm in South Carolina, if that helps at all.
I get mine from online catalogues. They're available there all year round.
I saw some in Target (in North Carolina) over the weekend.
I swear by Amazon.
Here's one under $30 in black:
Hi. My daughter is on a swim team and they go all year round. I've found great deals on swimoutlet.com. You can get suits with T-back/racerback (which is what you'll need if you're going to be swimming as a workout) from $20.
I've also gotten prescription goggles there for $10. And they work just fine, like those $200 ones do from the optician!
"Just keep swimmin', just keep swimmin', just keep swimmin' swimmin' swimmin'..."
I swim year round and I buy my stuff on Swim2000. They have a lot of stuff, you can get the "grab bags" for really cheap. I buy mostly the higher end competion suits since I swim a lot, those are usually around 50.00
SwimOutlet.com has a "grab bag" where you pick your style and size, but they pick the color. They're usually last years' patterns/colors, but the prices are right on: $20-$30.
If you've never shopped for speedo/TYR-type suits before, you might want to go to a Sports Authority or similar place and try them on. I find the sizes to be non-intuitive, and not particularly well correlated to pant sizes. You want one that's fairly snug, and yes - they're not particularly flattering. On anyone.
Ebay, online catalogs. I shop for swimsuits all year long - for cruise in spring.
