Bathing Suits

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

There is nothing more hideous than a new bathing suit. Ugh. I was hoping to find one that would at least cover enough of me that I would feel okay out on the beach, but with a week until Mexico, I've still got nothing.

Just got the latest entry in the mail from Newport News, and it squeezes in all the wrong places. It somehow manages to make my thighs look fat and gross, an area of my body that I typically have no problem with. It manages to make me feel fat and ugly even with the 20 pound weight loss, quite a feat for a girl who's usually at peace with her body!

I don't know where to look! I am at such an awkward phase that the plus-sized ones at Target are all too roomy but the regular sized ones don't give enough support. Old Navy has like one choice that's not a bikini, but it's completely backless, so it might as well be a bikini. I don't want to wear a grandma suit, but I can't find a happy (XL) medium.

    Hi! I was just dropping in to see how you're doing. No advice on bathing suits, but given that you were in Mexico, like, ages ago, I'm sure you already found SOMETHING! :)

    Ok, I do a lot of swimming, so can I help? Lands End is far from ideal, but they have a lot of choices for "anxiety zones" and they ship quickly to your area. Have you checked them out?

    Focus on your GOOD zone--boobs, butt, whatever you feel most comfortable with, then focus on negating the rest! With a skirt, wrap, whatever. Really, you'll be on vacation, your honeymoon, even (Right?), so....the suit is important, but at the same time secondary.

    And, that said, I can't BELIEVE what swimsuits cost! Also, have heard lots of negative feedback about Newport News. :-(

    Good luck!
