I Want Your Opinions, please

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Okay so I'm doing this with hesitation because the last time I posted something involving something similar I was accused by a stranger of wanting attention.

I ordered 3 bikinis. I'm keeping them all. But I'm not feeling confident about them. I'm not asking for you to lie to me to make me feel better, but I'd like your opinions, please, because all I can see is how much work I need to do before Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks in advance!

    I like them all, but I think the second one is especially fabulous. Like over the top. But with THREE...well now you can wear them as you like. For example, when you get out of the pool from the morning dip and then want to go back in after lunch. YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A SOGGY SUIT! Soggy suits are the living worst aren't they? That's the BEST thing about 3 bathing suits. They're all fabulous.

    The first one looks like you're a Ninja Princess. Ready to take on a rugby game or compete in the Olympics at a moment's notice. Love it.

    The third looks great, but it's my least favorite. Not because of how it looks on you. But because I THINK I see a bow there for the clasp on the top. Let's just say I have less than stellar stories about how tops that were held together by bows turned out for me. *delicate cough*

    What fun!
    1-strong woman, 2-vintage retro cuteness, 3-fun day at the beach
    You look great in all of them!

    I actually like the first look the best. The cut outs are great and it has an athletic look to it that suits you.
    BATHING suits you, LOL (I crack myself up)

    Rock those bikinis! The middle one with polka dots is my favorite. But, you look killer in all of them!

    First off, you look amazing!

    I like the 1st one the best. Then the pink one. Then the polka dots.

    my two faves are the first one and the polka dot one. the first one shows your body to its best advantage. the polka dots seem to me like they reflect your personality the best. for some reason i feel like the color in the other one washes you out somehow. or it may be that the red isn't exactly in the right spot on your body. i can't tell which. i would say wear the top one if you are feeling particularly buffed, the polka dot one if you are feeling adorable, and the other one when you are tanned and feeling a little bit more aggressive. they all are wonderful--and i am so happy for you that you have this "dilemma"!!!

    OMG you look great in ALL of them and they are all different. So yes keep 'em. I need to get caught up with you, but if you are going on vacay where there's water, you NEED different ones. that is a #goalsbody!!! Your work shows!!!! And what more work? You are strong and fit and it shows.

    BTW, reading your comment on my blog, yes it must be frustrating - you have lost a LOT of weight and worked hard. So often people think it's easier for you or that perhaps you've always been that way if they are first meeting you. GRRR. You WORKED at it and still have to.

    I am a ways from my goal so get more of the "surprised" looks when I mention that I'm a runner! Hugs.

    I really like the polka dot one! Here's just a quick observation: if you ARE NOT feeling all that fine in the others, those with the straps across the bod and all...just think of anything that would be protruding just incase you have a heavy water weight day. Not that I think you would because you look FANTASTIC..but it's just food for thought. Out of the strappy ones...I like the black one if you are choosing between the two of them.

    Love, Love Love, the polka dots, but hun, you are rocking them all!

    Ignore the haters! You look great and they're probably jealous. I like them in the order you posted them. Maybe too many red bands on the third.

    I love the polka dot one!! You look GREAT in all of them, but I don't love the straps. It looks diaper-y.

    I love the cut-out ones - 1 & 3. Where did you get those?? I wonder if I could rock a high waist bikini instead of a've inspired me to maybe give it a shot!

    I'm not crazy about the top one, but I love the other two on you! Especially the polka dots!

    As for your body, Andrea, IMHO, you got nothing to worry about. You're rocking in those bikins!

    The second one is my favorite, you look more feminine in that one and it's a classic look.

    The 1st and the 3rd do not flatter you the same, I have never been a fan of strips so thats why I guess.

    Have you tried a middle waist bikini instead of a high waist? And maybe a high-cut side?

    Honest opinion, I love the polka dot one. The other two are nice, but I don't find the cutouts on the bottoms flattering on many people (It's a hard look to pull off). You look great, though, and if you feel confident, that's all the should matter. And if you don't feel 1,000,000% confident, Memorial Day is still a ways away.

    The polka dot one looks great.

    Honey, you look totally amazing. Is your inner critic taking away your enjoyment? Don't listen to her. The bikinis are cute, and your shape is enviable. Wear your bikinis and strut your stuff, girl. You look great.

    Where and what exactly is it that you see work you need to do between now and Memorial Day weekend? Also, heck yea I'd rock all those bikinis if I looked like you.

    Are you seeing "work" that's actually there? Or are you comparing?

    Ultimately you're the one that has to be happy with the way you look.

    I remember last summer when I was going swimming at a public beach. So much unproductive worry time in my head. You know what? As we walked through the campground, people looked at us not because of what we were (or weren't wearing) but because we were happily going to be taking a dip in Lake Superior (it's notorious for being wickedly cold even in summer). Better us than them!

    Here's to you being happy as you rock your bikinis!

    I ditto I_CAN_AMY and also wonder if a high-leg would look good on you/make your legs look longer.

    They all look great! I love the fit and the style of the top one. Love you body, it's strong and beautiful. You have worked hard for it, don't be afraid to show it off!!

    You look great in all of them - look at your abs!
    I too like polka dots most.

    SOOOO cute! Where did you buy them? I like them in order of how you posted them. Top one is adorbs and totally modern #1 The second is super cute and retro #2 The last is cute, but the straps are not as on point as the first one #3 but still a keeper! emoticon
    Your tushy looks fantastic in the first one. Great job on all of your hard work!

    I quite like the second one, although I think if it had a lower waist it would be perfect.
    671 days ago
    You look amaaaazing! They are all cute but I love the first one the most. =)

    I think you look great in all three!!

    The 1st one: I like the top on this one.

    The 2nd one: The pose you're holding in the first picture reminds me of a pin-up girl!! I think this suit is the most becoming on you.

    The 3rd one: I like the combination of the red and the print, but not fond of the banding on the sides of the bottoms. These bottoms give you the least coverage of all three suits.

    You look great in all of them! I WISH I looked like that in a bikini. I have 90+ pounds to lose. Pretend that you just lost 90 pounds and you woke up with that body! You'd be doing cartwheels and strutting in that bikini! Go out and rock it!

    I think the polka dots have cute vintage thing that works well. I don't love the shape of the bottoms but that is entirely personal...the first and third have great bikini tops though!

    Not crazy about the ones with the bands on the sides, I think they would look better if they weren't high waisted. I love the polka dot one though and it looks great on!
