This plus size swimsuit provider has been online for over eight years. It was founded in 2000 by Susan Barone who also acts as the company's CEO. Always for Me has been positively mentioned in magazines such as Oprah, Seventeen and Glamour. They also carry a line of active wear and lingerie.
Selection: Always for Me has over 80 stunning plus size swimsuits to choose from either by designer, style or body type. They offer the following brands as well as their own Chic, Sport and Control labels: Carol Wior, Christina, Delta Burke, It Figures, Longitude, Miraclesuit and Speedo. The plus size lingerie line includes babydolls, cami sets, corsets, chemises, long gowns, lounge wear and robes. And plus size active wear like camis, sport bras and yoga pants.
Sizing: Always for Me swimwear is available in sizes 14 - 26.
Styling: Always for Me styles are figure flattering as well as being colourful and pretty. The styles range from sexy to functional. I think any age group would feel comfortable shopping here for swimwear. I could not find any bikinis.
Pricing: Swimsuit prices range in price from $59 - $142 with the majority settling in at the $70 - $90 range.
Availability: Always for Me ships in the United States via UPS and internationally via Air Parcel Post. When you add an item to the shopping cart you can scroll down and find a handy shipping calculator which calculates costs. For one bathing suit the shipping charges were $27 for Canada (this amount does not include any duty). For the same suit to Topeka, KS it was $10.
Overall Impression: Always for Me has some of the best swimsuit styles I've seen and they are nicely presented; I especially like their signature Chic label which was featured in O Magazine. The website is easy to surf, it's uncluttered, there is an array of young models with different body types (but they could use curvier girls as well as varying ages) and the shopping cart is easy to understand and maneuver. I also like the shipping calculator; although I think the shipping to Canada is a bit on the steep side. A phone number for customer service is readily visible. I always hate it when I can't find a phone number. They seem especially open to customer's feedback on future designs.
