Because anything real is a bummer-Swimsuits for Belize! [Nov. 20th, 2008|07:50 am]

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

Distraction is key today.


The top 2 suits I have a 20% coupon for.


So, this would be pretty hot? It's $29.99


This would cover more for snorkeling and maybe make my chest look better. It's $49.99

Or, should I get some cute MOAR Monokini suits?


The rufflebutt item is $23.99. I like this one the best, but it is so cursedly low cut. What if I order it a size up and tie the halter part higher? It is very very amusing to me with the ruffley butt.


This is only in White and has an open back, but is somewhat more covered.

Please dress me for snorkeling like a paper doll. Do I order them all and send back that which doesn't fit?

For those who need a reminder, this is me in the leopard monokini last summer. I'm a little skinnier, paler, and more weary since theses shots were taken, but not much.

That would go well with my hair and it DOES have that old fashioned glamour look I like. It's a bit more for a woman my age as well.

Yep, gotta say I love the second one too! You will glisten like the gold of a thousand shipwrecks while snorkeling!

Hmm...that was meant to sound more poetic than it actually is :D It's early, what can I say.

Also, the top would be super flattering for yer bewbs.

I agree. Although, I'm finding that the halter styles do suit me well lately. I have less to support up there.

I'm in favor of order them all, take pictures, then decide. Order the ruffle butt in two sizes. Appropriate and larger.

Though if you are really pale, the white one isn't what you want to go with. It'll help make you look even more pale, or rather next to death...depending on how pale the gold is on the second one, it'll also contribute to paleness...thus why I would order all and try them on to be sure what is flattering.

Just my .02

Good thought. I don't wear white very often because I am pale, but I love the style of that suit and it would be nice to have something more covered for when it is really sunny, but perhaps that's what a coverup is for?

I do have room to order them all up and send back all but the one I like best on. So far I also have a pair of shorts and a few t-shirts that fit. I could use a sundress, but maybe I can just buy that in Belize if I need it with how much suitcase weight costs on planes anymore. We are flying American Airlines.

Not sure how soon you guys are going, but I do have a suggestion about the paleness and other things. you might want to consider tanning a little before your trip. It'll keep you from burning while there, and will help your color in a general sense. Plus, it's been shown that people in Seattle and England (places that have a lot of cloud cover and not a lot of direct sunlight) benifit from tanning once a month. It gives the body some of the vitamins it doesn't get on a regular basis.
But that is just a thought.

I tanned before going to the Bahamas for this very reason, even though I generally don't burn, I knew it was much more of a possibility in a tropical setting. Keep that in mind. :)

And I would indeed wait to purchase a light sundress there. Because let's face it, sundresses aren't exactly in season in Seattle right now ;)

As for more coverage, there are LOTS of cute little wraps and cover-ups that you can buy.

But yeah, I would order all of them and try them on. :)

As for the cost of luggage, the only airline not charging these days is Southwest airlines. Bleh, I hate them.
Your first bag up to 49 pounds should only be $15 though.
And remember that you can always ship stuff back to yourself when you buy stuff there. Most hotels will accomidate you and help with that kind of thing, especially with the cost of baggage on airlines.

Have fun!

*giggles* Me,...tanning? That's funny. I'm a natural redhead. The choices are pink, red, or white. :)

I love the ruffle-butt but agree that the front is cute ridiculously low.

I've looked at the ruffle butt one for a YEAR now. I think it's time to take the $24 plunge and try tying it higher. The butt just cracks me up.

Re: nice!

I'm thinking if I ordered it a size up it would be less low cut and I could just tie the halter up higher.

Re: nice!

Maybe, but you don't want a saggy butt! That's my problem with "too big" in swim-suits.

I LOVE the white one and the gold one.
I dig the ruffle butt one too but something about the colors remind me of Fruit Stripe gum!
LOL

I think the polka dots and lack of reserve are what crack me up about that suit. Even the strap trim has polkadots.

I may order both since that company has strange sizing and a liberal return policy.

Number 3 makes me LOL. What is that, lettuce on her butt? I have the urge to put thousand island dressing on it.

Remember how I thought you were skinny? Well, I've changed my mind. Did you see how freakin' skinny those models are???

Personally, I love the white one, but I'm as pale as you so know how white looks on us. I love the color and sides of the first one. The gold one is classic. I think that ordering them all and keeping whichever looks best is a good idea.
