There is a nice bathing suit shop in orient village in the newer section of stores. Also there is a store on front street in Philipsburg called endless summer that has beautifully coloured suits.

My wife and I would recommend buying your suits before you go to SXM. Lots more variety is USA and much cheaper.

It depends on where you live in the states. The suits that Francesca carries at Forever New aren't to be found anywhere near where I live and shop. No, they're not cheap, but sometimes price isn't the only consideration.

Agreed that the patterns on the bathing suits are unique. There is something special about that suit from St maarten once you are home as well. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Thumbsup.gif" alt="" />

Nowhere in cobourg for sure. Bigley's in bobcaygeon a close second to the suits in St maarten/st. Martin. But they aren't from the island. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Groovin.gif" alt="" />

Forever New as recommended by GaKaye actually sell suits imported from Canada, Shan I believe is the brand.

Shan is a popular Canadian brand made in Montreal. It can easily be purchased here.Shan has stringent standards and much of the work is handmade.

Great soft prints on their cover up skirts and pareos. I find Shan at Saks or Neiman Marcus in the U.S.

I love the fit on their swimsuits. I'll have to look at Saks and Neiman Marcus when I get to a city.

Not that I'm tempting you or anything, but if you can't get to Charlotte, Neiman has free shipping and free returns!

LOL! Thanks for that info. We actually can get to both in Richmond faster than in Charlotte, and there are also stores in Raleigh, which is even closer!

Malibu Strings dot com and wicker weasel if you have time to allow for shipping.


But now I think about the good times, down in the Caribbean sunshine...
