Holy Freaking Swimsuits!

I am about to cry. for swimsuit joy. usually I cry for swimsuits, but not in a good way.

Delivered just today was a swimsuit that actually fit me. Actually makes my had-a-baby-so-back-off curves look good. The two tone is part of the trick I think. I screamed and was dancing for my girls. Then I called Jason, my sisters and my mom. I have been scouring the internet for months. Not much out there for girls with curves (although the girl I met in Utah who worked there was a XS). I normally hate tankinis. But I found one, sound the alarm. Meaning it hid my goods and is soo cute. If they were smart they would charge $200 bucks because I would pay that much to find a dang swimsuit that didn't have people barfing as they walked past me on the beach. Sometimes too much of a good thing is all wrong (nobody wants a butt chest seriously....sorry for the visual boys). Not to mention a belly button that was ruined by Luke! I think I'm going to buy 4 more different ones.

I'm in love with this store. Seriously when do swimsuits make people happy? Never. We might all be matching on the beach, but who cares. Summer is all about fun in the sun.


All Hail LimeRicki!

Here is the one I got

Here is what I'm buying next.


And then this one I think.

I love the one shoulder ones too

By the way, I bought a large :) so go from there as far as your body type goes.

Thanks to Beth for the tip on typing SENSIBLY for a 15% discount. That adds up!

I should also add that I haven't actually bought the other three yet so don't worry about matching, I don't want anyone not getting one cause they think I already bought it. Plus if you live close to me, and we wear it the same day we will just laugh....or call each other and coordinate. I liked the Samantha one and Maggie as well so am debating between those....hard to make a decision, what a great problem to have!

Brooke I want to cry too. I was just talking to Michalle about how I need a new suit, badly. Thank you. And I was going to ask your size and you posted it, you're even more awesome. I hate trying to figure out sizes online. THANK YOU!

Beth said...

I am sooooo glad to hear this. After seeing them on Sensibly Styled I keep going back and forth as to if I should order one and which one and la-dee-dah. And I know I can get 15% off with code SENSIBLY (FYI) until May 15th. Now I'm gonna do it. I might even order a few and then return the ones I don't like as much. I'm ready for a BIG order. Now the question is one piece or tankini???

Thanks Brooke!

I just ordered the Gracie swim top and pink cinch shorts. I hope I like it. But if not, there are so many I want to try on I will just exchange. Why can't there be a store out here! Amber - yours in on my list. Let me know how you like it.
