Why is that buying a bathing suit is one of the biggest ordeals for many women? I dread it like the flu. We are going to Florida in a couple of weeks and I will be spending time on the beach. I love the sun. I can wear something to cover up until I lay down. That way I can avoid been seen in it for a while. I seriously would rather see my body flat out nude than in most bathing suits. I think it is because its all the globs that stick out of bathing suits.
The funny thing is, when I was in my 20's, after having three children, I modeled bathing suits. I ran 5K's and 10K's. I worked out consistently. I had a 22 inch waist at a time back then. There was a very exclusive women's shop at the time and they asked me to model bathing suits for their style shows. I did not have a problem with it at all. There wasn't anything sticking out back then, except maybe a little cleavage. Make that a lot of cleavage, I have always been very well endowed.
Now buying a bathing suit and putting it on is worse than going to the dentist. I keep thinking maybe I should see if I can wear my old ones, then I won't have to go to a store and try one on.
I talked to a lady at the gym, she told me about a place that customizes bras and bathing suits. I don't know if that would help. Maybe, they can figure out a way to keep everything contained. Do you think they might be miracle workers? Has anyone been custom fitted for a bathing suit? The biggest problem with that means I have to have someone there when I try them on. Ewww!
If my son isn't home I go in the hot tub nude, just because I don't like putting a bathing suit on. Do you suppose that would be a problem at the pool and hot tub at our condo? Yeah, probably not a good idea!
