Swimwear made in the USA

How to Choose a bathing suit video. Link to a 3 min. 23 sec. video to help select the swimsuit that best fits your body.

Mainpoint: Finding swimwear made in the USA is easier than you think.

Swimwear or What Used to be called Bathing Suits (I mean did you really need to a suit to bathe?)

Well, it is almost Memorial Day and that means summer is soon approaching. And in the Northern hemisphere, summer is closely related to hot weather, the beach and swimsuits. So, go out and buy your swimsuit now, in the Spring, because that is the only time the new swimwear is available. Heaven forbid, you should wait until the weather actually gets warm before buying your swimsuit, or you will have to do some very hard hunting just to find a few, leftover  swimsuits within the discount rack, because all of their summer apparel space will have been replaced with Christmas stuff.

Made in USA Swimsuits

As some of you may know, the United States only manufactures about 2% of the clothes that we buy. So, some items of clothing are exceptionally difficult to find. Thankfully, swimsuits has not yet become one of those endangered species. Many of the department stores still carry swimwear made in the USA. And one of the ways to find these would be: going to a department store website like Nordstrom’s, and under search, type in “swimwear made in usa”. And a number of swimsuits should appear before you. This is true for Nieman Marcus, Barney’s, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s. Sears – not so much. Sak’s – it still does not have a search term for “made in usa”. The others: Target, Kohl’s, WalMart, Ross – forget about it. (Updated January 7, 2016)
