I needed a suit to swim in where I wasn't worrying about having to pull up the top or tug down the bottoms (you know the struggle). So when I saw this on top of my mom's pile of give-away clothes, I figured I would only wear it for working out. The suit seemed dated and tacky at first but the more and more I wore it, the more I fell in love.
First of all, I feel amazing in this suit. Because I don't have to worry about my bits falling out, I feel much more confident moving around in it. And by miracles of miracles, it fits like a glove! The cut on the neck, the open back and the high cut on the legs are also so flattering. But I think the thing that really makes it is the clever pattern design. For this pear-shaped lady, the bright stripes on top make my bust seem larger and the dark stripes on the bottom make my derriere smaller (optimal illusions for the win!)
I don't know what I'm going to do when this thing goes. There are a few tiny little wholes on the bum that I have meticulously hand-sewed.
Has anyone seen a similar suit to this one?
What's your favorite swim suit this summer?
