The Top Selling Swimsuits of 2008!

Some of us are a little gun-shy when it comes time to buy a swimsuit. Sure, it looks good on the model, but will it flatter our shape and keep everything in its place? No matter how much you like it, there’s always that nagging doubt that you’re taking a risk when you buy a new suit.

Well, get rid of the risk and buy one of SwimsuitsForAll’s bestselling plus size swimsuits of 2008. These suits suits tried and tested by curvy women like you – swimsuits which were so pretty and flattering that word of mouth alone shot them to the top of the sales list. Hey, ending up with a great suit is pretty easy if you let thousands of other full figured women recommend it to you before you buy.

Among the list of bestsellers is my favorite, the South Beach Border Liz Claiborne Tankini. I know I’ve mentioned this suit before, and have to admit that I did give in and buy it (and though I didn’t pay full price, it wasn’t as cheap as it is now, marked down from $112 to just $69). And I can tell you that this adorable little suit looks as good (okay, almost as good) on me as on the model.

Psst! Want to Take Part in a Secret Sale?
