It’s that time of year again… Swimsuit Season. And if you are like me, that ensues some panic inside you. I have put on some pounds this winter and spring and certainly don’t feel 100% bathing-suit ready. I have a list of criteria when it comes to bathing suits. So basically, if I buy one (and keep it), the heavens open and Alleluia starts to play in my head. Allen likes me in a two-piece but I have to have more full coverage if that’s the route I’m going. I can’t have my chest falling out of my suit while leaning over the kids at the pool. Also I have some scars on my abdomen that I prefer to have covered BUT I can’t stand when bottoms accentuate my hips/ love handles. No string bikinis here! I have returned WAY more suits they I have kept. This is why this post is so late. I have been trying on suit after suit after suit since early May! Sometimes it can be so disheartening. I thought one-pieces might be the way to go but they all accentuated things that didn’t need to be or they didn’t work for my torso. Ugh. I really wish Victoria’s Secret was still doing bathing suits! They were cheap, simple and it was easy to mix-and-match tops and bottoms and style styles. Here are some ones that I have found will work for me.
Shoshanna is a brand that works if your chest is a little on the larger side because some of their tops are sized by cup size.
