Swimsuits [Dec. 30th, 2007|04:40 pm]
Lanette
After a long search, I've ordered many skirted swimsuits to try on for my Isla Mujeres trip in Feb. You try finding skirted swimsuits in size 8. It's a riot! They assume if you are smaller you want to wear a bikini, but trust me, the world isn't ready for this much extra skin in public.

Black and White

Embroidered

Keyhole in Peacock

Plunging

and last but not least laced in purple




Hopefully one of these will work for me.

I haven't had the easiest time finding a suit, so when they all arrive I'm going to try ever last one, and hopefully one will stand out as the clear winner.

I agree on the keyhole, and these people at least don't want to see anyone in a bikini. ;)

Fourthed. Is that a word? LOL!
I was just thinking about this the other day. Oh, the odd and cruel irony of being smaller than I have ever been, yet maybe even more self conscious than ever in a swimsuit.

It is only semi-cruel irony. ;) I just think about how amusing it is and try to remember that YES, I am planning and saving for plastics.

The only one without color is the plunging one, so unless it looks by far the best, I'll most likely keep the peacock or purple one for that reason. I like a bit of color.

I have one up on you.
Try finding a size 20 suit that isn't matronly that is pocketed for prosthesis! Apparently swim suit makers all believe breast cancer survivors are all over 60 years old. I would have the same problem if I was a size 8.

What about miracle suits? I would try the 2 piecs...mix and match:

The way my body is shaped, I look terrible in tankinis. I have no idea why that is, but it is true at any size for me. I think that people with fewer curves who need more of an hourglass shape look good in those, but for me, it just hides the hip to waist ratio and makes me look boxy. I like all of the choices they have.

Love the keyhole, but also think the plunging one will look nice. :)

It may come down to whichever one hides my thighs more. Every pound I lose makes me thighs more creepy. I'll for sure be having a thigh lift one day.

Keyhole or embroidered imho. Too bad they don't have the keyhole embroidered!! I liked the skirt on the embroidered one..

I am not sure which will look best. It is going to be quite the contest of which holds in the most extra skin. :)

It does look very forgiving in the thighs. I hope it fits well.

Oooh I think they are all pretty. I am very interested to see what the keyhole one looks like, it seems to have a different cut. It looks like the black and white one may have the longest skirt, but I think it's the one that looks, how do I say this, not matronly, but not the youngest style?

I LOVE the back on the purple laced one, but none of the pictures show what the front looks like. *l*

It's hard to say which will look the most matronly on, so I ordered them all so I can try them. It's nice to have so much variety in my size. I love the fact that they make so many suite styles in every size.
