Need Vix swimwear at a discount? This is the guide for some of the best alternatives, anywhere online. I've decided to list some websites that seem to consistently have the lowest prices. Below are the websites that I recommend.
SUMMARY:I was curious about where the name "Vix" came from since I only think of cough medicine when I hear it. Turns out that it's derived from the name "Vitoria", which is the hometown of Brazilian founder, Paula Hermann. Originally, this label made Brazilian-cut bikinis but wisely chose to target a broader section of swimsuit buyers which in part explains their prominence in swimwear fashion today.
It’s relatively rare that eBay has the most meager selection of a brand as well as the highest prices, but it happened here. There are a couple of power sellers that carries a small selection of Vix apparel but with no notable discounts. One of them is an actual liquidator so my thinking is that they feel a bit proud of the fact that their inventory is not “gently used”. Amazon has an even smaller selection of this brand but after the discount, they still cost quite a bit of money. One of the merchant’s listed on Bizrate/Shopzilla seems to be having deep, deep discounts for this brand so for the time that I’m writing this in March 2009, this is the recommendation.
FROM THE BLOGS:
Given that this is an iconic and uniquely-named brand, it should come as little shock that they dominate the entire first page of Google Blog search results. Vix Swimwear seem to be particularly clever in creating their online presence in that their blogs domain seems to be different from their store domain but once you go access their blogs, you can easily click from there to the store. As you can imagine, most of their webpages have pictures of young models wearing the swimwear. Although some of the photos seem racy, I'm sure that the label can chalk these up to displaying the product.
Below is a new bargain website that I've come across that I thought was worth checking out. Whether it turns out to be helpful or not, I could not say for sure, as some of the links on this page look more promising than others. Hopefully, when you try it, it will prove to be a helpful addition to your bargain shopping:
