Ideally, your bathing suit search should be a leisurely in-person process, used to test every available cut and how it holds up in when you do jumping jacks/bend over/pretend to spike a volleyball. Sure, it might not be nearly as fun as say, fancy sandal shopping
, but you'll be grateful when there isn't any fit issues on the beach. However, if you must
order online, be sure to pick a place with free returns, in case something isn't quite the way it looked on screen.
