While shopping for bathing suits, we came across a few really expensive ones. And of course, we really want them. One was a gorgeous Missoni knit bikini — $540. Another was a simple black halter two-piece that was made by Prada, so that made it $510.
Whether you plan to splurge on a high-end bikini this year or not, one thing’s for sure: You want to get your money’s worth (and hopefully a couple of seasons) out of your suit. That means you’ll need to take good care of it.
We suggest you stock up on a couple of CupCases. They’re great storage cases for bras – AND swimsuits – when you travel on vacation or just across town to the pool. The sturdy case protects bathing suits and bras from getting crushed, snagged or tangled in your suit case.
You can fit a couple bikini tops and bottoms in the CupCase and still have room for various accessories, such hair ties, head bands, or maybe some fun jewelry to accessorize your suit. The fashion mags say stacked wooden or beaded bracelets are great for summertime.
And don’t forget to slip a CupCase in your beach bag. It’s a great place to store your beach bling while you take a dip!
