Living at the beach as we do, you'd think I'd be buying a few new swimsuits every year, but instead I rely on two that I bought on sale several years ago, and I only ever swim here, where it's pretty cottage-style, only my neighbours and family around, and I can change out of my suit very quickly. Luckily, we never do tropical/resort holidays. I hate, hate, hate swimsuit shopping! If I could stand to do it, these swimsuits look perfect, but given that we're barely warming up at the end of June, I suspect I'm going to eke another season's wear out of these sorry old suits.
I've realized I love my Anitas. Flattering (as such) and comfortable. I've never tried on a Miraclesuit. Does the tightness around the middle bother folks? I tried a Lands End and thought I would pass out for lack of air.
dana - I don't find Miraclesuits particularly constricting. Some of the Land's End suits can feel like putting on a girdle, but I still love that retro halter one.
These are nice. The wrinkles on the tummy look cute. A good choice.
I have never been a beach girl (pale irish genetics - the sun is NOT my friend...) but I have on occasion had to go swim suit shopping. Hate hate hate it, no matter what shape I am in. I usually wind up with a black suit as they tend to make black - or garish colors...hot pink etc....Thank god for catalog/online shopping! I do find it funny that I have a few suits in the same design as the suit you chose, and a few pics of my mother in the 70's version of the exact same shape. Flattering is flattering, no matter what decade we're in! Excellent choice!
