I decided.

One nice day and I have spring fever.

I have already begun the dreaded swimsuit shopping escapade.

I am refusing to buy a teenie tiny bikini this summer.  They are not flattering.  I am no longer a little 90 lb. teeanger.  I’m 5’3 and 125lbs.  I’m not a big woman, but the swimsuits seem to get smaller and smaller every season.

I may as well just wear 2 bandaids and a cork and call it a day.

Every spring I get so down on myself because I feel that it’s me that gained too much weight or something–but it’s not me!  I am happy with my figure but I can not be happy with these “barely” there swimsuits.  For woman that are 6’0 and 100 lbs—Kudos!  It’ s great if they work for you, but I don’t feel comfortable at all.

These tiny bikinis are giving me muffin tops and I don’t even have a muffin top!

The shape I am is the shape I am going to stay.  I am not longer going to shop in juniors, squeezing myself into these suits.

So, here is my solution:

Sexy tankinis!  I always thought one-pieces and tankinis were made for older women, and someone my age would look ridiculous in them.  I was so wrong! My mom and I went swim suit shopping last week and I found 2 beautiful tankinis by Carmen Marc Valvo and Perry Ellis.   I even found a great bikini from DKNY.  The solution is to shop better brands and look in the “Misses” departments of stores.  I found a great two piece by DKNY that does not have a tiny, tie-string bottom.

If you would like to join with me in this crusade, I found a few gorgeous suits from Victoria’s  Secret.  My suits are similar to these and they still are fun, pretty, and sexy without being skanky.
