You mean a sukumizu? Can't you just buy a regular one-piece swimsuit in navy blue?

I've bought things from J-List before. They're great. The newsletter subscriptions give an interesting perspective on Japanese life from the eyes of an American living in Japan.

But a school swimsuit is really just a navy blue one piece swimsuit. Unless you need a specific one that a specific character wears, I don't see the difference between buying a regular navy blue one piece and one that someone claims to be a school swimsuit. o.o;

Navy blue is a pretty common colour for one piece swimsuits like that, so it will probably be easier and cheaper to buy one at a store that sells swimsuits.

Because in a way it's not a two piece. The Jap is kinda like a two piece.

Your could try mimicking them with a long tank top and bottoms?

http://www.jlist.com/product/NET041
I know what you mean by them being unique in that the hip bone area is completely covered compared to most one piece swimsuits.

Here's 1 ebay seller with different sizes.

Ah okay. I didn't know you were looking for a specific kind. A standard school swimsuit can just be a navy blue one piece so....

I don't know where to get one, but like Ani BEE said, you could always just get a navy blue tank top and put it together with a swimsuit or some kind of bottom. o.o;

Or use the ebay seller she provided.... But I don't know if you want to pay $80 for something so simple. >.<;

Ahaha ya it's too expensive. Anyways even bottom is very very different from the bottom from Japan. It's a two piece remem? Not a one piece. Lol! Besides I don't think it'll be easy to find a top that long.
