Anyone who has been reading this blog for a while has probably observed that une femme is not comfortable flashing a lot of skin, and could very well be accused of having some Body Issues. The prospect of a beach vacation and the necessity of shopping for a bathing suit was daunting. But I tried. I went to two different swim shops at two different malls and allowed the sales associates to bring suit after suit, which I dutifully tried on despite my skepticism. Some came very very close.
But in the end, I went online, thew a cyber dart, and ended up with this number (the DD version) and couldn't be more pleased. It's comfortable, doesn't expose too much (just enough in the right places) and, indeed miraculously, gives me a waist! I've been able to roam about the beach and pool with confidence.
(Recommendation, buy at least one size larger than your normal clothing size to avoid the sausage casing fit and feel. )
