Going on holiday in 3 weeks, just booked it this weekend and thought id better get myself a decent swimsuit/tankini.

Ive been in Asda,Tesco,Matalan,TK Maxx,Next and THERES NOTHING

Just bikini bottoms.

Surely there must be a suit for me somewhere?

Can we have an swimsuit update on shops that have them in stock, pretty please.

Im in the north west btw if any MN,s are around from this area.

i'm afraid you will probably struggle now. Most shops have had their summer sales, which usual mean selling off all the summer clothes ready for the autumn/winter stock. This includes swimwear unfortunately . What about ordering online?

Sorry, I can't really help, just sympathise. I was in North Wales last week and spent the week before looking for a tankini with no joy. Ended up taking my maternity one.

My Gap has a very nice swimsuit, really cheap as well. Brown and crossed at the back

There were loads in Debenhams in the Metro Centre the other week, I was looking (and bought) from the bra sized type range (Freya, Fantasie, etc), so good discounts ranging from 30% to 50%. Also ordered a whole load from Figleaves (look in the Discount Codes section there is a 20% off code, think it was "compaug" it might still work). All but one of the Figleaves costumes went back but they had loads of choice and loads of stock.

Waiting for the right moment to break it to DH that I've actually bought two cossies, wonder if I just omitted to mention would he actually notice ... ponder ...
