You may not be planning a beach trip for this coming weekend (brrr!), but it’s never too early to start scoping out bathing suits. Getting a lay of the land is important to finding the perfect one-piece, but knowing where to look can get overwhelming. To help you on your pursuit for the perfect suit, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite shopping spots.
