Bathing Suit Shopping

Since I lost my bag that had both my bathing suits during my excusion to dokjeokdo and was not able to track it down, I had to go bathing suit shopping this week for my trip to Bali next week. There are lots of places to go, like Myeongdong or Dongdaemun, but I've had the best luck in E-Mart, of all places. I bought my bathing suit for Vietnam there last winter, the selection was small since it was winter, but now, for the summer, they had a huge selection. I finally settled on two suits. I like Korean bathing suits, because, as Koreans tend to be a bit more modest than Americans, they always come with various cover-ups. I'm not quite thin enough to feel comfortable walking around everywhere in a bikini, so everything that I bought has some sort of covering to wear outside the water. The prices were good, only 28,000 won and 39,000 won respectivly for each set. They seemed to be having a sale when I went. The only problem? I'm a size 6 waist size, and I was wearing the largest size available. So... if you're bigger than say... an 8... or a B cup... you're probably out of luck unless you want to buy the ajumma bathing suits...
