My fiance and I booked our honeymoon today to an all-inclusive resort in the Bahamas (EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!). We’ll be staying for a week,and I currently have only one swimsuit, due to overwhelming anxiety when it comes to the wretched combination of fitting rooms + bikinis. And even that one was only purchased after my fiance reassured me 2981 times that I looked good. When I warned him that we’d need to endure shopping for additional swimsuits, he looked at me like I was insane, as he didn’t understand why in the world I would need more than one. So, am I crazy? I can’t quite imagine hanging out in the exact same bikini for a week, but maybe I’m just weird.

When I go on vacation I bring a bathing suit for every day. I also revolve all my vacations around Scuba Diving so maybe that is why I bring so many swim suits.
Your Fiance is nuts. Is he bringing only 1 pair of board shorts?

For you I clicked the 2-4 button. For me? I’d be clicking higher than that! I don’t like seeing the same bathingsuit in pictures as much as I wouldn’t like looking like I only wore one outfit all week. And you get really up close and personal with your bathing suit in the hot sun.. Ha. Go get at least 2 more. Ex: try on a VIctoria’s Secret halter top suit and if you like that, buy one in a solid color, and the other in a pattern!
And woo hoo on your honeymoon!!

I think you will be fine with one, especially if you dont want different tan lines from different suits. I brought 2 swim suits on my honeymoon only because I had them already and I change my mind often 🙂

At the very least you need 2- one to wear while the other is drying. There is nothing worse than putting on a damp suit!
I had 2, bought 2 and am debating about another one.

I’m bringing all the bikinis I own, which is about 7. H&M is having them on super sale right now, or you could hit Target or Old Navy for inexpensive suits.

I personally would take about four. No less. I don’t think you need any more.

I take 2 when i go for a week. I mean, are you going to wear a different swimsuit every single day? Don’t you want only ONE set of tanlines, not a whole bunch of differnet weird ones overlapping?!
My husband only brought two pairs of swim trunks
Haha apparently i’m in the minority…i hope you don’t why you overpacked

I usually bring one per day. I like to give myself options.
I actually have a funny story related to this. A few years back I was going on a week long resort vacation with my then boyfriend. I only had 1 or 2 bathingsuits that I liked/that fit so I set out to buy more so I’d have one for every day of the week. This was all on my poor college student budget. I did some very smart shopping and ended up packing 7 lovely suits. Well, when we got to the island, my luggage was lost and we didn’t get it for a day and a half. So I ended up having to buy ANOTHER suit at the resort giftshop because it was so hot there. That suit ended up costing as much as all my other ones combined. Luckily my then Boyfriend or Best Friend was super generous and bought it for me, (it’s still to this day one of my favorite suits.)

I would bring 3, but I think you could do with 2. I HATE putting on a wet bathing suit…gross! They usually take a day to dry depending on where you keep them. And then the extra is for the spa in the evening!
I also usually have a sportier one for watersports or things like that.
Fiance – totally crazy!

I suggest ordering a few of them online (Victoria’s secret has some super cute ones) so you can try them on at home and not stress out and don’t have to stress out your fiancee by dragging him to the store. He’s not crazy, he just doesn’t get it. Then, you can return what you don’t like!

One is definitely enough, but I’d bring two, since I hate putting wet bathing suits on (I always rinse mine in the shower to get the salt/chlorine out, and it’s not always totally dry in the morning). More than two is definitely too much…

We’re going to Maui for a week and I’m bringing 3 bikinis. I like having options and my swimsuits never dry completely in one day… putting on a semi-wet bikini is yucky.

He’s nuts, but is probably just because he doesn’t want to go through the shopping drama =) For a whole week on the beach I’d definitely want more than one – I’ll probably take 3-4 on my honeymoon.

I usually bring one for every day, because I <3 choices, haha.
I’d definitely bring more than one, though, unless you want to put on a wet swimsuit! They always take SO long to dry!
