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 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. emoticon

    I know what you are saying. I have been putting it off for about 6 weeks now. I have three, one I love but it is a little tight, and another one is one I bought on E-bay, no big lose, it is a bigger one, but one I want to get rid of, and the thrid one, is another one I an not to fond of, it really has no support for us big busted gals. We are going to Lake Powell in ten days. I'll be on a houseboat with Dh and our two best friends. They are both close to 300lbs. So I am not to worried about this trip, I have plenty of cover-ups for myself. But in less than 100 days We are going on another Caribean cruise and I am going to be smaller and can wear a nicer suit. The only ting is I am not sure what size to buy and then in three months, the swimsuits are put away and winter coats are out!!!! emoticon
