1. Las Olas. This King Street surf shop has a big selection of suits for guys and girls from hot brands like L’Space, Vitamin A, Volcom, and Reef.

2. Sally Bettes Resort Shop. Catering to the tourist crowd down on Market Street, this new shop is one of the only places in town where you can buy girly suits and cover-ups from local designer Marysia.

3. Everything But Water. This swimwear chain located in Charleston Place Mall has options for a wide customer base, from cute little bikinis to suits with body shapers.

4. McKevlin’s Surf Shop. When you’re out on Folly Beach, McKevlin’s is one of the most authentic places to shop. Their selection is based on performance first, then uniqueness.

5. Target. Because let’s face it: No one wants to spend $150 on a suit they’ll be tired of three months from now.
