swimwear shopping

i am hoping to purchase a couple of bikinis (and maybe some wraps/sarongs) when we visit in september.

where would my best bets be for swimwear shopping? any particular names of department stores, specialty shops, surf shops? i am looking for reasonable prices - not flea market quality or prices - but hopefully something i cant find at home (styles, fabric, colors/prints).

are there any swimwear warehouses or outlets in the san diego area?

thx!

There is a great swin suit shop in Mission Beach called Pillard (I think). I find things there that I don't see other places. Along the same street there are several other bikini shops.

Diane's Swimwear

Horton Plaza and La Jolla

They sell tops and bottoms seperately which is the ONLY way to buy a swimsuit.

And if you get to Escondido

Everything but the Water in Westfield Mall

is great for selection and higher end brands
