The best time to buy a swimsuit? Whenever you go on vacation. “I have always found my favorite suits are at the resort’s boutique and local shops. These places tend to be well-curated, so you can find a really unique suit,” says Sanders.

If you don’t have a vacation on the calendar, no worries. Stick to off-season months like early spring or late fall. “Stay away from big department stores during the summer holidays” says Sanders. “This is when everyone is buying swimsuits, and all the cute suits get bought up in a snap.”
