You know, sometimes summer sucks! It’s actually one of my favorite times of year up until it’s time to find a swimsuit! I own a lot of them, but I don’t like most of them. At the time I bought them I liked them, and then I look at them later and think “what the hell was I thinking?” especially after seeing pictures of myself!
Does anyone else have a hard time finding a suit that you like, looks good on, and is actually wearable? I have ordered them, got them in department stores, and at Target, but am not completely happy with any of them. It’s like people who design suits are thinking of 12 year olds that have no boobs or curves yet or grandma’s who want to cover everything up! I’m tall (very tall I guess!) and have a long torso so finding a one piece that doesn’t break the bank is impossible. Tankini’s are a great idea but I have yet to find one that gives me the support I need without having thick straps or doesn’t smoosh my chest to nothing. So, I have 2 piece suits and I’m not always feeling great in those either! Then try and find a color/pattern that looks good on! Heaven’s to Betsy it shouldn’t be this hard!
Why the anger? Because I just ordered a suit from VS that looked cute in the catalog, but when I put it on was not so much! The bottoms fit, but I looked like I had torpedo boobs a) because the cut of the top and b) because it was too big even though I bought my bra size. So, that one is going back and I’m out $20 for s/h. Oh, and then I ordered one from AE and it’s really cute if I was 13 and didn’t mind my butt hanging out and the sides of my boobs showing. I think each year I order at least 3 suits and try on dozens more. Anyone have a great experience with them? Anyone have any suggestions as to where to find a good one? Now that it’s the middle of July I’m happy that swimsuit season is almost over, but then there’s always next year and the viscous cycle starts again.
