Bathing Suit Shopping

With Mexico less than a month away, 3 weeks to be exact, I’ve been in overdrive mode about my eating habits and trying to make it to the gym a good 5 days a week (trying is the key word.) This wedding comes at a perfect time because it’s like a jump start into the summer!

Bathing suit shopping pre-kids was always kind of difficult for me. I had a tiny butt and big boobs so I could never just buy one size and have it fit perfectly. Back in the day to buy suits separately you had to go to stores like Everything But Water, Macys or Nordstrum, for a high school or college kid those price tags were a big no no in my book!

As the years have gone by everyone is selling tops and bottoms separately so it’s easier to mix and match. However, enter post kids body. My boobs just DON’T fit into suits like they use to and those low rise cheeky bottoms just do NOT flatter me any longer! I also have found that I can’t and SHOULDN’T just buy cheap bathing suits, those are the ones that don’t fit my body well. So just like a good pair of jeans, I need to spend a little bit more money to find suits that fit me.

Last summer I posted this photo online because I LOVED the way I looked and felt in my new one piece. This year I’m on the hunt for another cute one to add to my summer wardrobe but also some bikini’s that show off the hard work I’ve been putting in with my food and gym habits.

With working and having kids, getting to the store and actually trying suits on is a real pain in the ass. My love online shopping, point blank. I LOVE seeing packages on my doorstep when I get home from a long day at work and trying on in the comfort of my home, not worrying if I’m taking too long in the dressing room. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites I’ve been eyeing, now I just need to pull the trigger on a few.

    AERIE!!!!! They go up to 38D, and they have high rise bottoms! I know, you're not as big as me. I'm just saying, they have lots of options for lots of coverage and shit fits so good!

    I love these, especially the black and white one at the top! By the way, were you at Great Lakes yesterday? I thought for sure I saw you there!…or someone who just happens to look a lot like you.

    Ohhh how I WISH I could rock a bikini again! I'm just way too self conscious about it. I actually bought the bottom left blue Top Shop one and I really liked it but again, was too self conscious about my back so I returned it.
