Fashion Friday: The Bathing Suit

I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can’t see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato’s closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast!

Fashion Friday- The bad word “bathing suit”

It is that time again to don our bathing suits or hide from all water related activities. This is the time of year I think everyone dreads. I know that even though I am comfortable with my “dips” as my husband has named them. I would rather they go away. I have tried the creams, exercise, eating well only to make the dips less noticeable but still there. I have my suits already since I am “knocked up” I will be wearing maternity bathing suits yippee!!!

Here is my favorite because of the scrunching. I can even wear it after the baby. I got it at target for $19.99 for the top and $19.99 for the bottoms. Yes, this is way over my normal budget but I decided to buy a suit that was comfortable and fit well through the whole pregnancy. This suit was actually worn by my sister with her second and given back to me when I realized I was not done.

I will however attempt to get myself back into a normal suit before summers ends by walking and eating healthy food once the baby is born. I actually hope to retain some of my pregnancy weight because I like my curves.

I bought this suit last year at the gap outlet

Here are my rules-

  1. If you are going to do a two piece go to a store that offers mix and match tops and bottoms so you can get the top and bottom that looks good on your body type (Here are a couple of stores that offer this option Target, Gap, Victoria Secret, Kmart, Everything but Water, etc)
  2. Do not look at the size of your suit. I mean start with the size you normally wear and grab the next two sizes up. I normally buy bottoms to my suit that are one or two sizes up. This will insure my bum is covered and I do not get that uncomfortable ride up.
  3. Size does not matter the cut, fit, color, shape, and the fit matter.
  4. If you are going to get a one piece make sure it has an embedded structure to tuck, suck, or enhance curves
  5. Be confident!
