Swimsuit Shopping is No Fun!
Tuesday, June 09, 2009
As summer quickly approaches I realized I'm going to need a new swimsuit this year. Not only because the one I have worn the last two or so years is a little loose (only the top) but also because I've never really liked it.
Unfortunately, when you're obese/overweight, full-figured, voluptuous (whatever you want to call it), buying basically any type of clothing - from dresses, shirts, bras, swimsuits - is no easy feat. I've never been able to walk into a store, spot a super cute swimsuit, try it on and jump for joy because it fit, or because it looked wonderful. Nope, I'm the lucky one who gets to either shop around until I find one that half fits, or try to get lucky shopping online.
Shopping online...not exactly my cup of tea when it comes to shopping for clothes. But, I found some really cute ones on Spiegel.com this week. I ordered five of them today and decided I'll return the ones that don't fit. It's so hard to pick the right size even after looking at the chart for measurements. Hopefully they will arrive next week. I need something that fits by the 4th of July, at least.
Anyways, that's all I've got for today.
