So THAT'S what I've been hiding all winter...

It's that time of year again... the dreaded bathing suit shopping. Ugh. I seriously think I'd rather have a tooth pulled. I've been out searching for a good swim suit, one that will support me and isn't more revealing than need be. It would also help if it was flattering. No luck yet. I'm sure tons of women agree with me that standing in the dressing room mirror at the begining of swim suit season kind of makes you want to cry. Your looking at yourself in the swim suit thinking "So THAT'S what I've been hiding all winter".

We got a small pool for the backyard for Little Man, which we have all ended up enjoying. I've been hanging out in the back yard in my bathing suit from 2 years ago- which is maternity. Not exactly something I'd wonder out of the privacy of our back yard in. We also recently joined the Y and they have an awesome water park for toddlers. I've been so excited to take Little Man, which is why I've been so frantic to find a suit I'm comfortable in. After several days of non stop looking through racks, finding something I think will work, and being dissappointed, I am going to give it a rest for a few days and try again next week.

So to all you ladies out there struggling to find that perfect swim suit, know your not alone. Good luck to you in your travels from store to store, I hope you find something quicker than me! And to the rest of the ladies who fit perfectly in that itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini- I hope you get sand stuck in your suit :)
                                                    just kidding.


  1. Haha! Good luck with the suit shopping. I HATE that moment when I'm trying on clothes and I look in that full length mirror in that horrible light. It really does make you want to cry. Or really cry.

  2. I also hate, HATE, HATE the lighting in dressing rooms. Could it be any more unflattering?!

  3. I just found your blog, and I am so glad I am not the only one with body image issues!
