I hate shopping for swimsuits.
I HATE SHOPPING FOR SWIMSUITS!!!!
It's wrong; it's demeaning; it's... *sob* necessary.
My Italian vacation is only a few short weeks away, and I (of course) waited until the last minute to shop for a swimsuit. Since I do not feel the need to suffer the humiliation of seeing my white legs and post-childbirth stomach, magnified in a 3-way mirror under fluorescent lighting, I have avoided any in-store try-ons.
But our last week in Italy is spent entirely on the Amalfi Coast and Capri. Which means lots of sun and ocean waves; and swimsuits, in the plural.
I need not one, but two swimsuits! I refuse to wear one suit over and over for 5 days straight. Ew.
On top of having to find those two swimsuits, I also have to bother about finding a good sunblock plus a great fake tanner. Ha! Doesn't that sound contradictory??

Being as busty as I am, it can be quite a challenge shopping for a suit that fits both my top and bottom. While I naturally gravitate toward one-piece suits, two-piece suits, at times, are more practical for my body type. And by two-piece I mean a very, very thin strip of skin showing between the top and bottom.
Husband says if you can't see my bellybutton, it's not worth it. I say if you can't see my bellybutton, you're grateful!! HaHa!
Vintage swimwear is so much more glamorous and flattering than the styles of today. I especially like the swimsuits of the 1940's and 50's. Higher waistlines and fuller coverage tops, provide me with as much security as I can expect, while wearing so little!
