When you’re visiting the Outer Banks in summer, chances are most of your time will be spent in swimwear, enjoying the beautiful beaches or a refreshing poolside. You might be surprised just how much more swimwear options are out there beyond what you find at your local malls and retailers. There’s no need to stress out and shop for the perfect suit before you make your way across the Wright Memorial bridge. You can find swimwear for the whole family in stores up and down the beach. Leave it to the experts, the managers and owners of these swimwear retailers to help you find just what you are looking for.
For men, find board shorts and swim trunks suitable for all of your favorite activities, including surfing, fishing or just kicking back on the beach. For kids, you can find the perfect suits to let your little ones enjoy the beach and bring back home all the sand.
For women, it’s a little trickier. We know it’s hard trying to figure out what suit fits best with each body type. And the options are plentiful: one-pieces, two-pieces, string bikinis, tankinis, Brazilians and itty bitty bottoms, high-waisted retro and pinup styles, athletic styles, full support, more coverage, less coverage. Let’s face it, the options are as exhaustive as they can be exhausting to try on. Let the swimwear experts help you make the right choice and find you a suit that you are comfortable with and love!
