So, I have this great new body, right? I decided the other day that I need a new swimsuit; the suit I have now is of the “cover everything up” genre, and I want something a little less matronly.
I’m looking for a two piece with a sports-bra like top and a not-string bottom. Nothing fancy, so I figured it would be easy. I had no idea that such a thing would be damned near impossible to find.
I’ve been to literally every store that sells swimwear in my neighborhood. I found ONE top in my size in Dick’s (which was a heinous shade of impossible teal, so no). There were some possibilities at Sears (I ended up buying one of them; I don’t LOVE it (the pattern is a bit busy for me), but it’ll do). Everything else was more appropriate for teenage girls and (sorry, but it has to be said) sluts. Really? Fringe? Really?
I’m going to do some online shopping – hopefully, most of the swimwear is just about to go on clearance. Anything I find won’t arrive in time for our trip to the lake on Saturday, but at least I’ll have it for next year.
