I want – I got twitter follower @edlynne wrote for a friend:

Where are there good non-skanky swimwear stores in Toronto?

I replied to this query on twitter but I thought it would be good to record the answers here for everyone. First, I had to understand what non-skanky swimwear meant. I had thoughts of this person wandering into the many shops on Yonge Street that carry a variety of skankwear. I came to understand that the friend was looking for more classic/ retro swimsuit shapes.

I had the following stores in mine for more classic/retro swimwear options.

I also suggested ordering a beautiful swimsuit from Norma Kamali online. Just because they are so gorgeous and perfect.

Candice Best tweeted the following additional stores to try

swimwear: decent options with lines like Eres, Vix at Sandpiper(yorkville) + LaMerceria carries Colombia’s Touche – gorgeous cuts!

Do you have a suggestion to add?
