With summer approaching (because I live in Australia), I thought I would do some research into shopping for swimsuits.
It has proven to be a difficult task, because I wanted to find swimwear under AU$100 as most branded labels you would pay a good AU$120-$200.I’m all about the bargains, so I had to push my hunting a little bit harder.
As soon as I see a tacky looking site, I stay away from it. Don’t get me wrong, they might sell good quality products, but I have the mindset of – If your website looks low quality, your products are probably tacky. I also stay away from non-user friendly sites – the ones where navigating through the site is so confusing that you waste your time on it.
So here is my attempt at finding ladies & mens swimwear for under $100. Please note there are so many designers out there that I wanted to provide the cheapest sellers. The mens swimwear is towards the bottom of the list.
SwimWear Place I thought provided a good range of swimwear and categorized the range well. The have a clearance section on their website, but most of their normal priced swimsuits were just as cheap. They have cute, sexy, funky and sensible swimwear and caters for all different sizes.
Milanoo is probably the cheapest website I could find with the lowest price bikini at about AU$6.00. I personally liked the swim dresses and skirted swim suits because they look cute and fun. I also believe this site might be selling at wholesalers prices because it’s direct from China. It is similiar to this Ebay store: http://stores.ebay.com.au/Bestlingerielineau because it’s shipped from Hong Kong.
Amiclubwear is totally cute and sexy. Not sure how I stumbled onto this website but it’s not for those who would feel self-conscious in what their wearing. You definitely need to have the confidence to wear these bikinis.
Sheridyn | Fisher Swimwear I found was reasonably priced and they have 2 sections on the website. One section includes the fun, fashionable swimwear and then you’ve got the Very Vixen Cheeky range which includes Brazilian and thong bikinis.
Swimsuitsforall is perfect for anyone in any size. I like this website because the cater for small and large women. You can use a coupon code Best123 to get 30% off the 2011 Best Swimwear. Some of these swimsuits may not suit peoples’ taste as it is more sensible swimwear and covers up most of the body.
Hapari doesn’t have many items on display, but all their swimwear is on sale. I get the feeling of Hawaii from this website, because of the floral patterns on most of the swimwear.
Zodee has a cheap clearance section. Most are separates but generally you can find the matching top to bottom. You can find a full set for under AU$20 if you scan from lowest to highest in price.
InstyleSwimwear offers some cheap options in their clearance section with discounts up to 80% off. They do offer a good range of fashionable swimwear on sale with mainly bikinis on sale rather than one pieces.
The Orchid Boutique also has a good clearance section. Some of the items might not be within your budget. They include more designer labels on their website but I still managed to find some reasonably priced swimwear on this website. Most of these items are more fashionable.
Pallas Swimwear is more funky and playful swimwear. They, don’t directly sell from their website but do list stockists that you can buy from online. I like the bright colours this designer uses and for some reason I think of clubbin’ wear when I look at their swimwear.
Funky Direct uses bright colours and patterns for all their swimwear. They are a little bizarre but as their title suggests, they are funky. The men’s trunks make me laugh because I just couldn’t imagine anyone I know wearing them.
Swimoutlet as the title suggests is an outlet store for both men and womens swimwear as well as accessories. You can choose what kind of swim wear you want eg/ fashion, competition swimwear and it caters for designer brands at low costs.
International Jock does provide general meanswear but has the swimwear section also. They include mankinis, board shorts, trunks , shorts and briefs. Their sale items are mixed in with their full priced items, so it’s good for comparison. I couldn’t see any of my friends wearing the bikinis for men but you never know what might tickle your fancy.
Nuwear cater mainly for briefs and trunks. The lowest range in price is $10-$20. They do not have many items in the board shorts range so I would stay away from this site, if you are not a trunks or brief wearing man.
Dogfunk has a good sale section for men’s boardshorts. These are all brand labels at discounted prices. From simple plain colour shorts to patterned, fashionable board shorts, this website will cater for less exposed and surfer type of dude.
Tactics also cater for brand label men’s boardshorts. They mix in the sale items with the full priced items. Similar to Dogfunk in the range on offer.
The sites listed are able to do international shipping and these are just a few of what I could find. There is always Ebay to search in but I found these websites offered lower prices. And, like most websites, the more you spend, the higher in probability they offer cheaper options for shipping.
