Okay, so I am really making plans for the impending snowstorm when what to my wondering eyes should appear in my inbox but a SwimSuit email. Yes, it is that time of the year. I have a new body and plan on showing it off in a new swim suit that fits.
It is not that I do not have a swim suit. I have three – a tankini, a one piece and a racer back one piece. I do know how to swim and enjoy doing so which means that whatever I happen to buy needs to be functional as well as – ick, dare I say it – “age appropriate” and fit me like a suit has fit in many years.
I am thinking of trying on some at a local store and the ordering online. I like the idea of being able to order tops and bottoms separately. No, at the wonderful age of 47, I am not contemplating a bikini but I am contemplating a new tankini. I can keep my racer back for when I want to do laps. It is large but will work.
So when you go out swim suit shopping – which, as far as I am concerned, ranks right up there with jeans shopping – what do you look for? What do you buy and where do you buy it from?
