'Everything But Water' House of Fauci's Store Review

For most women, going swim suit shopping is not fun! After I had my first child I became 'that woman' that wore a tank top over her swim suit and constantly felt awkward, especially when my bum kept popping out of my swim suit bottoms. After my husband told me that I needed to buy a new swim suit because we were going to the beach, I knew I needed to put on my big girl panties and find the perfect swim suit and I knew exactly where I needed to go, Everything But Water. 



The following weekend we headed out so that I could find my perfect swim suit. I told my husband exactly where we needed to go and he complied, well sort of. Here is my story of that day and my store review of 'Everything But Water': 

Yep, that is a crazy freeze frame! 

So let me know what you think. What are your swim suit shopping experiences? Have you ever been to 'Everything But Water'? Do you get stressed out about putting on a swim suit?

  1. I have never been to "Everything But Water." Normally my swimming suit shopping trips end with me crying in a fitting room. Maybe if I went looking somewhere other than a department style store I would have better luck!

  2. that's where I went for my last fitting. They are amazing! They had suits pulled for me before I even got there. And, they even were honest when a suit didn't look good! The one you picked is super cute!

  3. I don't try on ANYTHING in a store. I would rather buy it, try it on at home and return it if necessarily. I don't have many issues with bathing suits, thankfully!

  4. I'm not a big swimsuit shopper. I prefer to grab new ones toward the end of summer so they are on clearance -- and hope they fit the following year!

  5. I have walked by the store many times but never gone in. Looks like a great one-stop-shop for bathing suits!

  8. I have never heard of this store. It has been a while since I have gone shopping. I do prefer tankinis. More covereage and easier to use the bathroom :)

  9. I've never heard of this store before. I may be the strange person here, but I don't mind swimsuit shopping. I think with knowing what flatters my pear shape, it helps me find things I feel comfortable in.

  10. I've never been, but I love that color! I do try to shop sales in the winter, but in Florida, there are not TOO many sales since we can always use a swimsuit!

  11. I've never been to this store before but it sounds really great. I usually end up ordering a swimsuit online. I hate trying them on in the store!

  12. I agree, it is awkward to be around kids, ESPECIALLY your own kids or their friends, when your swimsuit isn't modest. :) Yours looks like a great choice. I love the bright orange color!

  13. I never heard of this store before. I hate swimsuit shopping but I told my daughters I will find a swimsuit so I could get in the water with them.

  14. I honestly don't even wear one anymore because it's so uncomfortable for me. I really need to just get out there and find one that makes me feel good though.

  15. I don't enjoy swimsuit shopping either! I finally found a cute one that covers my post-baby tummy but I could really use a new one!

  16. Swim suit shopping requires lots of bubbles! I hate it! I found a cute suit at Lane Byrant last year, and I actually love the suit!

  17. I've never been and swimsuit shopping is not my favorite thing. It's more a body image issue than finding what I like.

  18. I've seen this store around, it's been around (or something similar) for quite some time. I haven't purchased a new swimsuit in years...I don't think I've worn the one I bought two years ago. :(

  19. I had not hear of Everything But Water until now. That swim top looks sturdy and supportive without being...well...lame. LOL!

  20. Oh girl I HATE swim suit shopping!!! Makes me want to go cry in a corner. I definitely need to check out Everything But Water...

  21. I've never heard of Everything But Water. I used to get stressed out buying a swimsuit when I was fat. I've lost over half my body weight so I'm not stressed about it anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah, I enjoyed it before I had kids, too. Now, swimsuit shopping is torture! I've had the same experience as you with shopping- there's so much out there for teeny boppers. I wish there was an Everything But Water near me!

  23. Wow, bold choice you got there! I love the color

  28. I have long since gotten over the stress of swimsuit shopping, because I figure that everyone has thighs that jiggle - some just more than others. There is no shame for me! I have had a lot of luck with finding suits on One Stop Plus.

  29. Last time I went swimsuit shopping was when I passed by the clearance rack at Target! I found two really cute suits, but I'm still in search for a great cover up! I've never heard of "Everything But Water". Definitely going to look them up.
