How do you pick the right size for a bathing suit? Up one size or down one size from the clothes you wear??

I haven't worn a swimsuit in years. I saw a couple online that I liked but don't want to purchase and have to send back if it's wrong. Thanks

  • If you haven't worn a bathing suit in years, you REALLY want to go to a store and try some on. They're on sale almost everywhere now.

  • For me going up one size is just fine. I wear a 14 generally and my bathing suit is a 16 and fits great.

  • I would probably try one on somewhere so you know what size to get. lol. Then if you like the one online better, at least you will know what size is good?

  • I think it also depends on the company that makes them,I have suits in different sizes b/c of the way they are styled and the company
