(Closed) Going to the Bahamas for a week – how many swimsuits?

posted 11 years ago in Honeymoons
  • poll: How many swimsuits should I bring for a week-long honeymoon in the Bahamas?

    One is fine - your fiance is totally sane.

    2-4 - your fiance is nuts.

    5-6 - your fiance is nuts.

    7 or more - your fiance is nuts.

    I’d bring 2 but have the same neckline.  I am always each year a 2 swimsuit kinda chickie.

    I’m funny about straps/tanlines too.  Totally get that!

    Congrats Redherring!  Sounds wonderful!

    I am going to the Riviera Maya for 7 days and I am on a constant bikini hunt! So far I have 4 but I really want to get more! I just don’t tell anyone because everyone judges me “what the hell do you need so many bikinis for”?? For pictures you dummies, plus I hate doing laundry while on vacation!

    I also really like choices. Victorias Secret has really cute bathing suits. I like to hoard them in the winter time when they’re on crazy sale.

    When we travel, I bring two swimsuits and Fiance brings one. Same goes for a week in the Caribbean or two weeks in the islands of Greece.

    Now, I’d still want a second suit if I were you, just for fun, but I don’t think your Fiance is nuts for thinking you only need one.

    Kind of surprised to see everyone complaining about gross wet swimsuits – my bikinis never take more than a couple of hours to dry.

    I can’t imagine wearing the same swimsuit every day…. but then again where I live it’s bikini season all year and I, like most people here, have a whole drawer full. Most are from Victoria’s Secret, they’re reasonably priced and pretty good quality. I say you need to snag at least one more, and I’m sure your Fiance is right about one thing — that you look great in a swimsuit! 🙂

    I live in florida so I have a TON of swimsuits.  When I go on beach vacations I usually plan for 3 suits for 4 days.  A lot of time they can take more than a day to dry so you want at least 2 for every 2 days.

    I think 2 is the minimum but if I were you I would take at least 3. I am planning to take 3 on my mexico beach resort honeymoon.

    I would bring at least 2. You can rinse one out after you swim and let it dry. While it is drying you can wear another one. If you need to order quality swimsuits that look super hot, I would suggest Victoria’s Secret. They use high quality material that is cut well and they ship pretty quickly.

    I voted 2 or 4. But that’s based on how I roll.LOL I”m going on a 8 day cruise in June and I’m packing 3. I’ll do different water excursions and I dont want to wear the same thing ALL the time.

    I think your Fiance needs to pack more than one suit, just in case. But you know how men are.LOL

    I took 3 for a week in Riviera Maya.  And I made DH buy a second suit too.  No one likes putting on a damp swimsuit, and you should scrub out the bottom with soap after you wear it.

    I always bring like 4 or 5, but you need at least two.  Because sometimes you go swimming and then you go back to your room or whatever and then go swimming later.  I hate hate hate putting a wet suit back on.

    I also second other’s advice of finding one you like and buying different colors/patterns.  I have several of the same swimsuit from J. Crew because I love it so much!  I also recommend VS and I think they are having a huge swimsuit sale right now.

    @jennychicago – haha! your comment made me laugh – For pictures you dummies! Last night my husband said the same thing about a shirt I packed for him – he swapped it out b/c he didn’t want to be in pictures wearing the same shirt he wore last time we went to the island, hahaha. I totally get it!!

    don’t bring him along! enlist your Maid/Matron of Honor or a Bridesmaid or Best Man to help, and everyone will have fun.

    We are going to the Riviera Maya for 10 days and I’m bringing 3 suits. I also plan to buy a new one on Playa Del Carmen while we are there. You are most likely going to spend more time in your swimsuit than in regular clothes. Would you even consider bringing only one set of clothes?
