If you buy a $90,000 car and own it for a year, the cost of ownership is $.17 a minute. If you buy a $5,000 wedding dress and wear it for 5 hours, the cost of wear is $16.67 a minute. Yikes. Fortunately, there's a way for savvy brides to make their wedding dress purchase more economical, to the tune of 50 percent off retail. That's thought of all the people, but Dudool can help you reduce money on wedding dress. 2013-Corset-White-Strapless-With-Flower- 2013-A-line-V-neck-Sapghetti-Straps-Floo New-Simple-Style-Pleated-Sash-with-Flowe 2013-Satin-A-line-Embroidery-Classic-Sty 2013-Satin-Simple-Embroidery-Pleated-A-l 2013-Sweetheart-Neckline-Embroidery-Long

There’s a reason some women pay hundreds of dollars for inches of cloth.

It's all fun and games till you see the price tag.

swimsuits For American women it’s a summer ritual: walk into a clothing store, pluck a playful swimsuit from a throng of brightly colored cousins, flip over the price tag—and hastily return the suit to its rack, lest it automatically charge itself to your credit card. The price of a women’s swimsuit—that uniform of summer vacations and sweltering poolside afternoons—can easily hit $100 or more, even at stores not found on Rodeo Drive. How can a scant handful of fabric squares, strings, and clasps go for such a hefty sum?
swimsuits For all their skimpiness, women’s swimsuits are complicated garments whose prices are tied up in the complexities of global manufacturing, seasonal retailing, and designing for a wide range of activities and body types.
womens swimwear “Constructing even a simple swimsuit is every bit as complex as constructing a dress,” says Nancy Stanforth, a professor of fashion merchandising at Kent State University. Designers must push the latest trends, while carefully considering fit: A survey by the NPD Group showed that fit outranked comfort, style, quality, and price for women when purchasing a swimsuit. Ideally a swimsuit will compress some places while revealing others. It won’t ride up and won’t come undone with the first wave or jump off the diving board—all while making the wearer feel comfortable and confident. “Because the customers are wearing less, they’re more critical of their bodies. We’re working on a small canvas, so it’s more challenging to create a suit that feels good and … is innovative and fashion-forward,” says swimwear designer Karla Colletto of Karla Colletto Swimwear .

cheap swimwear for men Another reason swimsuits are costly? They’re stretchy. Stretchable fabrics, which revolutionized women’s swimwear in the 1960s, are more expensive than many other materials (including, for example, the sturdy nylon or cotton used in men’s swimwear). In addition, manufacturers need special machines to handle the spandex, Lycra, and similar fabrics typically used in women’s swimwear.
swimwear on sale Swimsuit material is also expensive because much is required of it. These fabrics and other swimsuit components, such as underwires, must stand up to a wide variety of elements—water, chlorine, sand, salt, sun—and activities. “It is just as important that the style looks great as it is that the item is technically stable and able to withstand swimming, sunbathing, etc.,” says Samara Fetto, who manages the swimsuit division for the online retailer ModCloth .
The relatively brief amount of time swimsuits spend on store shelves also contributes to the garments’ higher prices. Peak customer demand is limited to a few months of the year, so designers have less leeway on the time needed to get garments manufactured overseas and sent back to the States. The tight timetable and smaller orders mean they get fewer manufacturing discounts. Designers whose output is a fraction of the blockbuster brand names’ output also pay more to produce their limited-run suits—Colletto, for instance, has taken the unusual step of manufacturing her suits at her Vienna, Va., facility to avoid the hassles and high costs of manufacturing overseas.
Although seasonality may slap a few extra bucks onto the price of your new bikini, it’s not as hard as it used to be to find a suit off-season. Purchasing a swimsuit used to require a trip to the department store sometime between the last snowfall and the first blast of air conditioning, but the rise in online shopping has made swimwear a year-round venture. Online retailers can sell bikinis to Australians planning beach vacations while Americans are stockpiling winter coats and snow boots. Web-based stores can also offer more sizes, particularly plus sizes. “Plus-size swimwear at ModCloth has been a huge growth opportunity and something we have seen tremendous success with,” Fetto says. Unfortunately for consumers, longer shopping seasons and a greater range of sizes haven’t translated into lower prices.
But swimwear, like swimming itself, has long been democratic, says Christine Schmidt, author of The Swimsuit: Fashion From Poolside to Catwalk . Just as you don’t need a trip to the French Riviera to escape the heat, you don’t need to empty your savings account for a suit that feels like a million bucks. In the 1920s you could make a swimsuit at home from a store-bought pattern, or you could purchase a suit from one of the newly created collections of elite French fashion designers. Nowadays the swimwear industry—a $3.5 billion-a-year-and-growing business, according to the NPD Group , with women’s swimwear accounting for 70 percent of the market —is rife with competition. Retailers such as Target and H&M sell lower-cost alternatives for even the most basic of suits—the little black bikini—that retail for double at Victoria’s Secret or tenfold with a Dolce & Gabbana tag . More competition brings lower prices—and more excuses to hang out at the pool. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.
Thanks to Tori Praver of Tori Praver Swimwear for her insights on the swimwear industry.

Watch out Samsung: Google and Nokia are gunning for the Samsung Galaxy Gear with their own smart watches.

The Google Gem is reported to be headed for an official announcement on 31 October, when Android KitKat -- the next generation of Android software for phones and tablets -- is expected to be officially launched.

And leaked photos from China purport to show a prototype Nokia smart watch, if they're real.

Nokia's in a good position to make a smart watch, as the Windows Phone software used in the Nokia Lumia range of phones scales well to different-sized screens. In fact, Samsung's Galaxy Gear basically nicks Windows Phone's coloured square tiles rather than trying to squeeze Android into a 1.5-inch screen.

Wearable technology is set to be the next big thing, with smart watches leading the way. Recent wrist-worn wonders include the Sony SmartWatch 2  and Nissan Nismo , a watch that talks to your car. Hit play on our video for more on this exciting new wave of gadgets:

Samsung is expected to quickly follow the Gear with a new watch that packs more features -- and works with more than one phone -- after admitting the first incarnation " lacks something special ." And Apple is also heavily rumoured to be planning its own iWatch.

Way to go, posting a mock up image of something that clearly can't be made by todays technology and pretending that what it will look like.
Lazy "journalism" at the extreme.

Thanks for your comment, Nathan. The image is indeed a mockup and is used here purely for illustrative purposes. No-one's pretending anything

North Korea demands China return defectors A tightly guarded border separates North and South Korea Continue reading the main story Related Stories S Korea kills man swimming to North S Korea in 'defector' orphans plea Watch N Korea refugees 'sent back by Laos' North Korea has demanded that China return 13 defectors who were arrested as they tried to make their way to South Korea.

north face It said they should be returned "as early as possible" and accused South Korea of "abducting" North Koreans.

north face jackets The escapees were caught in China's Yunnan province. North Korean refugees tend to make their journey to South Korea by first heading to China.

north face jackets China often repatriates them to the North, ruling them economic migrants.

the north face outlet online sale China is North Korea's only ally and a major trading partner.

the north face outlet "The DPRK [North Korea] calls upon the countries concerned... to send back its inhabitants as early as possible as required by international law," a statement by North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said on Friday.

north face jackets It described those who helped the defectors as "agents and human traffic dealers of the South Korean Intelligence Service" and accused them of "abducting inhabitants of the DPRK to forcibly take them to South Korea".

Rights groups say refugees who are repatriated can face punishment and imprisonment.

In June, the UN said it was dismayed over reports that China and Laos forcibly repatriated nine young North Korean refugees.

Escaping North Korea is extremely difficult as all its borders are heavily patrolled.

Most North Korean refugees leave via China and head for nations in South East Asia, from where they can get to South Korea - which provides financial assistance and training.

However, the number of North Korean refugees arriving in South Korea dropped by 40% last year.

Activists say North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is taking stronger measures to prevent people from trying to leave.

The North and South remain technically at war after the 1950-53 conflict ended in an armistice and not a peace treaty.
