Swimsuit Store in No. Va

I need some help with name or recommendations for swimsuit stores in the DC area. I heard there was one on Wilson Blvd- Swimfit?

I am looking for inexpensive durable suits for pool training.
Thanks.

Try Underwater Wear. I know this store is in Gaithersburg, but they are one of our merchant partners (10% discount).

Sport Fair has a discount rack in their back room - mostly Sppedos - depending on your size - the better the discount. The smaller sizes (under 32?) are usually a 2 for $45 deal - 34 and above are usually @$40 each.

I've haven't checked the in-store inventory lately, but I get mine at REI. This time of year, last season's swimsuits are usually discounted. I think that they carry Tyr.

Also a bargain ($30-$35) - grab bag suits from Speedo and TYR. Downside - You can't chose the style or color. You tell them your size and they send you whatever they have left, usually last year's models/styles. Upside - usually 50% off. I've liked the grab bag suits I've gotten in the past. Or you can save 30-40% and buy suits on sale from website, choosing your style and color.

Just a quick note: I prefer TYR or Speedo brands. The Finals suits are generally slightly cheaper, but they wear out more quickly. Same with Nike - avoid them.

Another online option is http://www.kiefer.com

Founded by an American gold medalist at the 1936 Olympics, who is still, amazingly, involved in the business.
