Now that school is out, it is the perfect time to find a swimsuit that you enjoy and is perfect for whatever you are planning this summer. Besides the usual department stores like Macy’s and Target (or sporting goods stores like Dick’s and Academy), there are a few specialty stores around Kansas City that sell swimsuits as one of their specialties. If you are having trouble finding a swimsuit that fits your body type or the type of activity that you are looking for, these stores might be your perfect option.
