Can I let you in on a little secret about me?
I haven't bought a new bathing suit in eight years!
Mostly because of the horror I endure shopping for one.
Every year I say I will get one. I browse the stores. I see something I kind of like. But when it comes time to actually try it on I run from the store screaming.
We are going to Florida next month and prepping for my trip I have accepted the fact that I don't think my haggard old suit can survive another summer.
I've never really loved that suit. I remember buying it in haste because it was the only one at that time that fit me. This was right after John was born and I needed a bathing suit for a mommy/baby swimming class. He loved it. Me? What was I thinking?
So what do I do now? Shopping it is!
Here we go again....
I've never been a bathing suit person. I am that lady who always wears shorts and a t-shirt over her suit. Mostly because I have never found a bathing suit I've felt comfortable in.
Not since I was six and I actually looked cute in one....:)
I love the vintage styles of the 1950's.
The bottoms ride a bit lower on the legs and cover more upper thigh, which I for one really appreciate!
I also like the halter style tops. Most of them had a sweetheart neckline and are so darn cute I can't even stand it ♥
Is it possible for me to find one of these? Does this style still exist?
I am going bathing suit shopping today and I'm hoping to find a diamond in the rough! Something that I won't feel I have to cover with a t shirt.
My dream is that Liz Taylor will jump out from behind the racks and hand me a vintage baby pink suit with sparkles that's just my size.
Wouldn't that be perfect....♥
...but I'll probably just end up running and screaming!
Wish me luck!
