When it comes to a bathing suit I must admit I have not had one on in more years than I can count.
I quit laying in the sun in my mid to late 30s so really the only time I remember wearing a swim suit is when we went to Hawaii.
Let's face it I don't really like what I see when I see myself in a swim suit, but I have vowed to myself I am going to change that.
We have access to a beautiful pool, and an indoor lap pool, in our new community. We have water aerobic classes offered here so I truly need to plug in.
So here's the deal, I needed to buy some swimsuits in order to even go to the classes. So the search began!
If you are like me when I look at the perfectly proportioned models wearing a swimsuit I like, I forget it is not going to look like that on me. This is where disappointment can set in, but I am determined!
I took the plunge, and ordered several suits to see which ones will fit my proportions. I know some will have to go back and hopefully some will actually fit and serve my purpose.
I figured I am probably not the only one in this position so I thought I would share some of the suits and cover ups I liked, or at least liked enough to try.
I did receive this first suit and it fits perfectly and is very comfortable so it is a keeper. I found years ago that the longitude brand fits me well since I have a long torso.
I loved the colors in this one. I have not tried it on yet so the jury is still out.
Next came cover ups. This is where I had a real problem and again I am not sure how these will look once I receive them but I still wanted to share with you all just in case you need to buy a swimsuit or something to put over them.
I was trying to find something that was an easy put on pull off. I sure don't want to have to be a contortionist at the pool in order to get my cover up off. Omgosh, can you imagine how embarrassing that would be? Yikes
This looked comfy and the colors will look good with the black and white suit or the blue and black.
This is similar to the long one, but a bit different and shorter.
This next one is pretty out of my normal box, but it looked flirty and comfortable so why not give it a try....
I thought this would look good with the blue striped suit, if it fits!!
So there you have it! Wish me luck!
I hope some of my choices will help you in making your own choices for swim wear.
Now for the real commitment!
Here I come water aerobics!!!
