Thanks, OrchidFlower! I've always thought swimsuits are wayyy too expensive for the little fabric they require. I guess the price is not material-proportional. Thanks for the tip!

OrchidFlower is right. In my earlier post I said I had 2 new suits on hand purchased in advance. That's because my existing suits are polyester and will not die. I may have to update my will and bequeath the new suits to somebody.

I have three. I will have to follow Orchidflower's advice of 100 percent polyester. I think all of mine are either from Lands End or LL Bean and are at least 6 years old. I like the kind that are two piece but look like one suit...no flabby midriff showing. I only went swimming once this summer, to a water park attached to an amusement park. I wish my gym had a pool.

Believe it or not, one polyester suit I just finally threw away after 3 years and bought another. Just got sick of it--even tho it still fit and was in great condition. Yes, I know..this isn't LBYM, but I rationalize it by figuring I'm saving over $45 by not having to wear pantyhose anymore.

I bought two in July at Lands End in Sears, on sale, $100 for the two. They look like halter tops over tennis skirts. I figure I'm good til the grave now.

Pantyhose for me have gone the way of the iron, ironing board and the Dodo.

I think we caught the same sale.
I bought several halter swim tops, a few short skirted bottoms and mid calf coverup skirts at dirt cheap prices online at different times over June and early July. I do a lot of boating and lakeside bumming around, so they will be dual purpose mix and match outfits for years to come.

FD said it before and I'll say it again- This thread is useless without pics...

...why scare the little children?

Regardless, I do wash my swimsuit out in cold water after each wearing before drying, which is supposed to keep it working longer, also. My LBYM effort, anyway.
