Where to buy swimsuits

Postby paast10 » Thu, 27 Sep 2007 1:38 pm

I cant find a topic on this so i have opened it. I need to buy a swimsuit - I am looking for one with a tank top piece and a little skirt type bottom piece. Not too expensive as I will use for 1 month or so only.
I checked at Mustafa and did not find what I was looking for. Are there any small shops where I can find them? I assume department stores will be at least $50.
Thanks!

Check it out at the Arena shop located at Suntec city or Parkway parade.
Price might be $60 and alittle more.

Thank you for the information. I will check the place out at Suntec but I really just need something to wear a few times and then never again - so cheaper is better!

Visited the shop in Singapore Plaza on basement one, it has a limited selection and very expensive ($400).

Try the OG store in China Town, their range of swimwear is good.

Depends

Hi,
It depends where you are coming from but IMHO MRT would be better, the OG is next to People's park.
While you are there check out the local stores in People's Park as well, some great stuff available.

Hope this helps you.

I will try that - thank you! I did get a "temporary" swimsuit from KL this past weekend...but I dont really like the style - but it will have to do until I find another one.

I was looking through this month's issue of Cleo - and they review the best places to buy swimwear in Singapore.

I think that New Urban Male was one (I always assumed they were a men only shop - but obviously not!) - and the other one was an Australian brand, can't remember the name. If you don't want to have to buy the magazine then just pop into Borders and leaf through it quickly...
