On-sale bathing suitsThere's nothing better in my mind than saving a few bucks, which is why I adore end-of-season sales. Bargains and I, we get along like peanut butter and jelly, like fall weather and pashminas, like Snooki and Jionni. OK, you get the picture.

Let's get to the point: swimsuit season is coming to a close, and that means there are loads of AWESOME deals (many of which peak around Labor Day) going on both online and in stores. I know I know, you're probably more interested in buying cozy sweaters and leggings right around now. You're also probably worried about what will be "in-style" next year.

Not to fret bargainistas! I've found a whole slew of timeless, on-sale styles that will be perfect for swim season 2012. Check out these 8 classic bathing suits under $100.

Are you a fan of Labor Day sales? Do you ever buy ahead?
