Remember last weekend I mentioned that I was going to sign up for a membership to the YMCA so we could go to the pool this summer? Well, I did it! But now I need to find swim suit. (Read: A swim suit for my not-so-fabulous post-baby-bod.) Before Cameron was even born, I was determined to get into a cute polka dot bikini come summertime. My goal was to lose all the weight by May. And I did- I'm even a few lbs under! The problem, my friends, are the awesome stretch marks that are still hanging around, uninvited. A tankini, it is.
I've been perusing various websites for the perfect tankini. I checked out Lands End, as I've heard they have a nice selection. And they do- if you are 50+ years old. I may be a mom, but I'm not quite ready for the "mom" swimsuit just yet. Next stop, Victoria's Secret.com. Bad idea, Leslie. Just like watching the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at the hospital when you're in labor, 2 weeks overdue. Very bad idea. Those girls make the ugliest swimming suits look smashing. Last stop, Old Navy.com. When I was in the store the other day, the selection was picked over from Memorial Day shoppers, but I managed to find a size I fit into, and the prices were great. So I went online, and to my surprise I found styles and patterns I didn't see in the stores at even lower prices! Score. Here's what should be arriving at my doorstep in a few days:
