Default Fashion/shopping experts... help please?

So I really like this swimsuit.
http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/the...p-couture.html

Nevermind the retro nautical look, just the cut looks really adorable. No way can I afford $80 on a swimsuit though, especially given I've never tried it on.

I went out this weekend looking around a bit trying to find something with a similar cut and I couldn't find anything. Old Navy usually has some cuter one piece suits but I came up empty there. Kohls only had a bunch of old lady looking one pieces and a bunch of cute two pieces which I have zero need for more two piece suits. And Target has completely failed me in the swimsuit department for like three years in a row.

SO... has anybody seen something like this at a store? Or online somewhere that it's not $80? I'm game to spend $20... maybe $25... but no way can I spend $80.

Help plz? =3

Are old navy bathing suits really that inexpensive?! I've never managed to find a bathing suit under $40. I usually buy a suit in August/September by picking through the half price remnants and can snag individual pieces of a 2 piece for $20/each if I can find them in my size. Luckily I don't swim enough to require a suit more than every 3 years or so.

JC Penny's site has some similar cut suits on there--you could go in store to try them on, at least, though they're still $30-50.

All of them: http://www.jcpenney.com/jcp/XGN.aspx...005&pagesize=1

Otherwise, all my usual suspects for suits, and all my google searches for these kind of styles bring up $79+ as the price

I've never found a swimsuit for under $80 . It seems like the standard swimsuit price.

That suit is CUTE!

Right now their bikinis are $15 per piece. They frequently go on sale $12.50 per piece, plus if you're an Old Navy Card holder you almost always get 10-20% off on top of that. Price-wise it's about like Target, especially when you know what their sales have been in the past and are patient waiting for them to roll around!

ModCloth is super cute retro stuff, but most of them are more than $80...
But keep it in mind for the future :P

Lands End has swimsuits very similar to what you would like, but they look to be in the $80+ range. However, Lands end swimsuits are really, really high quality.

If there's a Ross around you it might be worthwhile to check there.
