Buying a bathing suit in Barcelona: Where should I shop?

Instead of a typical souvenir, I'd like to buy a bathing suit in Barcelona during my long weekend there in March.

I'm 40+, nice figure, rather short and busty.

Any good recommendations? I'm interested in both a bikini and a one piece.

Thanks!

Oh and no padded cups please. I'm big enough as it is.

El Corte Ingles also has a rooftop level cafeteria and restaurant with one of the best views in Barcelona.

Thanks for the tip. I'll put the department store on my list of things to do. It sounds like the cafe on top is worthwhile just for the view alone.

And Lobo, my Portuguese George Clooney, I read your message and it made my day. No, my week. Actually, my month.

Lobo: By the way, we'll be staying in H10 Marina from March 19 - 22. I've got a group of 16 people together. If you and your lovely wife would like to join us, we would be happy to have you as part of our group.

Dear Schuler
We are very pleased with your offer, but we are unable to join you this time.
I hope you to have a wonderful time in Barcelona. Barcelona is one of our very favourite cities ever.
Make sure you are able to take your group to Lisbon somewhere in the future. Next time, we'd love to spend some more time with you.
Kind regards to the English young lady in your group (Susan?) and to Mr Otto and wife. I smile even today, when a remember the crazy waiter in Gravatas, saying; "hello, mr o.t.t.o"
