If you live in a cooler climate and don’t go to the swimming pool or any local lakes or beaches very often, then odds are you don’t have a lot of variety in your bathing suit collection. It’s not uncommon for a woman to only own one or two bathing suits, and to stick with lower priced brands if she’s not going to be using them very often. However, when it comes time to take a vacation to the sunny, sandy beaches of, Jamaica, Hawaii or any other tropical location, picking up some designer swimwear might be a goo investment. The price might be a little higher, and you might be hesitant to fill your closet with a multitude of bathing suits, but you’ll see how worthwhile it is when you land at your vacation destination.
Swimsuits that Hold Up
The main thing that you have to remember about beach vacations is that you will essentially be living in your swimsuit for a week or two (depending on how long your vacation is). You won’t want to wear the exact same thing every single day, and you probably don’t want to be wearing a cheap, flimsy suit either, as it might not hold up very well. When you look at it this way, you can see that designer swimwear isn’t an indulgence at all, but a wise investment that will make your vacation much more enjoyable.
Another important thing to remember is that once you’ve gone on one tropical vacation, you’ll love it so much you’ll immediately start planning another one for next year! Your designer swimwear won’t go to waste after your vacation is over, because it will last you for a few vacations.
Some people like to just lie around on the beach during vacations, but many like to engage in beach activities as well. Whether you’re playing beach volleyball, going snorkeling, enjoying a boat ride, or going for a sunset run along the beach, you will need swimwear that is durable, flexible, and good quality. Cheap swimwear often sags, tears, loses its shape, or becomes see-through if it’s wet for too long. Having a bathing suit emergency is a great way to spoil an otherwise fantastic vacation, so investing in some good quality designer swimwear is essential in easing your mind and helping you to relax and have uninterrupted fun.
The Affordability Factor
Of course, some people might not be able to afford enough designer swimwear to keep them in a new suit every single day for a vacation that lasts two weeks. As much of a good investment as it can be, it isn’t necessarily affordable to everyone. If you feel like buying ten new pieces of designer swimwear would be a little bit too much for your budget, keep in mind that you can always mix things up by combining designer swimwear with more affordable bathing suits and beach accessories. A good way to keep things budget friendly is to buy a couple of higher quality suits and save them for days when you will be engaged in more active endeavors.
As mentioned, you don’t want to be playing sports or exerting a great deal of energy in a suit that might stretch out of shape and sag. On days when you are planning to engage in heavy activity, have your better suits available so that you don’t have to worry about swimwear that doesn’t hold up. On days when you are planning on lounging beside the pool all day, you can afford to wear cheaper suits, as you won’t be putting any strain on them. If you still want to achieve that designer look in a simpler suit, you can always buy a couple of fashionable accessories, such as a wrap, a hat, or some designer shades, and pair them with any of your bathing suits.
If you don’t live anywhere near a beach, designer swimwear might seem like a bit of an indulgence, but going on a beach vacation is certainly reason enough to invest in some good quality (and good looking) bathing suits. Good quality, designer swimwear will hold up better than your average suit, and will provide you with the peace of mind you need to enjoy your beach vacation.
