On swim wear...

Here's some basic recommendations on choosing a swimsuit. I pray that some younger readers find this and take it to heart, to save the world from the horrors of an improper suit choice:

1. Wearing a suit with a skirt doesn't mean that we can't see your butt. So when you're standing in front of me (and my view of my swimming kids, thanks) and bend over just a bit? And your suit's underwear part is in a severe wedgie? So it looks like your ass is NAKED? Well, let's just say the skirt isn't helping anymore.

2. Just because you can make the material of a size 3 string bikini cover the parts that need to be legally covered, doesn't mean it FITS YOU. I am all for being happy with our bodies, no matter what their shape. But the attention you're getting as you thrust your size 20, barely covered body in our line of sight? It's not the kind you're hoping for. It's NOT. There are suits that are appropriate for everyone. A string bikini is rarely appropriate, let alone desirable.

3. If you have breasts? Then please wear something to cover them. Women are forced to. I believe men with large boobs should have the same consideration for the rest of us.


It's going to be around 90 and humid today. FINALLY, it feels like summer. Not that I want to endure the stickiness of the heat, but our neighborhood has a pool, and we have only used it about 3 times so far! I have a feeling that I will be less tempted to sit at the computer with its additional heat that radiates from it, and more time lounging by the pool, enjoying the breeze from the lake...

Can't wait to see the suit choices today!

oh oh oh....that goes for every piece of clothing actually. Just because the material and hardware hold? Does not a fit make.

tracy

Oh My Gosh! I totally agree! LOL

we are reilly said...

speaking of clothing...what about 'skinny jeans'???? NOT appropriate if you're not 'skinny' and I think the only individuals who are actually 'skinny' would include pre-puberty/pre-teen girls! Whoever invented skinny jeans?

I am SO with you on this! That being said, I will not be purchasing a maternity suit so if the sight of a big ole pregnant momma in a bikini happens to bug someone, I'm rather inclined to think they best just deal with it! (Not that I plan on going to any public places in a suit....in my current state)

Amen to this!

Let me clue you in to my secret shame.

My 59-year-old mother still wears a bikini. Now, she is slim, but let's just say that "things" aren't where they used to be. There is sagging, drooping, and lots and lots of pregnancy-caused vericose veins to behold. It isn't pretty.
