Best Swimwear Shops In Dallas

Swimsuit shopping is not at the top of the list of most people's favorite things to do. Finding the right styles, the right designs or the right cuts can be difficult and time consuming. When shopping for a swimsuit, first define your style and your life. Are you sporty, girlie, sexy or conservative? Who will you be swimming or poolside with? If you're going to be with your kids, you'll want a suit you can swim, play and horse around in as opposed to a barely-there option that might result in a Janet Jackson-style wardrobe malfunction in front of other members of the PTA. If you're going to lounge beach or poolside with your sexy partner, consider more daring, embellished or revealing styles. Here are some DFW swimwear retailers that make finding the perfect suit a litter easier:
