Swimsuit Season is here!
I no longer cringe at the thought of buying a suit. High school was a whole other story, but we are not here to relive my traumatic past.
As a woman in her mid 30’s, I no longer find swimsuits intimidating. Annoying and sometimes ridiculous, but not as traumatic as my teenage years.
A recent trip to my favorite store, shout out to Target, wasn’t too terribly bad. My daughter was with me and input her opinions on which one I should buy. She actually has good taste and sure thinks her mommy can pull of any design. Thanks kiddo.
How Low Can You Go?
Let me tell you one thing, low-cut, one-piece swimsuits are not practical unless you plan on laying by the pool or on a beach towel all day. Luckily, there is a large market for that lifestyle. For those with sagging boobs and chasing after kids, no so much.
I was not aware that this look would not be favorable on me. I went into the dressing room unassuming. The first problem, I am tall. One-piece bathing suits have always been a challenge. I either have to slouch or have a severe case of camel toe, neither of which I find attractive. My second complication arises from my less than perky chest. Let’s face it, those things are useless. (Side note, for a good laugh, watch this video. I Mom So Hard is awesome!)
For a plunging one-piece to work, you should probably be mid 20’s, no kids, and short. For those who fit this description, high-five to you. Strut your stuff. For the remaining public, no worries, we still got it going on. Be proud and work it girl, just not in that particular item.
