This week is Spring Break for my oldest son, so our family is on Spring Break. Spring Break is not always what it was during my college days. This year, we are not near a beach. Instead, we are in the Washington, DC area visiting family and the many beautiful sites and amazing museums. That said, I know swimsuit season is just around the corner. (BIG sigh because this body has been yearning to get back to regular exercise, and life is just getting in the way. Next week!) You know what I say? Get a spray tan…because everyone looks better with a tan, even if you’re not in the best shape.
Now that you know my secret, let’s get to the real point of the post. Swimsuits. I find swimsuit shopping one of the most frustrating tasks. Yes, it’s a task to me because it’s really difficult to find a suit that I feel comfortable wearing. If you feel the same and dread this search, I hope this post will help. The suit I’m wearing in the photo above is a classic. I’ve had it for a few years, and it’s still going strong. The top can be tied differently to be worn three to four ways (strapless or around the neck), and the shape of the cups provides great support or gives the illusion of larger breasts…whichever you might need.. The bottoms are flattering but still provide full coverage in the buttocks because, well, I need it. I’m wearing it in Indigo, but it comes in many colors.
My favorite new two-piece of the season is this affordably priced blue and white striped triangle top and high-waisted bottom. I purchased a Size 4 in both. It really looks amazing on, and you can’t beat the price.
As for one-piece options, there are so many! But I did purchase this animal print option, and at $13, how can one go wrong. I purchased a Size 4 in this, as well.
I plan to order a few more of the options I’ve chosen below. I’ll try them at home, and ship back the others that don’t flatter my figure. I really recommend this for everyone who is swimsuit shopping because it can be quite time-consuming. And it’s much easier to do it in the privacy of your own home when you’re not rushed to make a decision. Simply scroll through and click on the images below to shop. Two-piece options are up first, then one-pieces.
