I needed a swimsuit. But I didn't know where I should get one. I saw several cute ones at my beloved Target, but none that would fit my body shape correctly.
Then I remembered Modcloth. I never purchased anything from the site, but I always admired their items. (No, this is not a sponsored review.)
Their stuff isn't exactly cheap. Some items are, but the swimsuit I wanted was $89. This is a lot of money to me. When I read magazines and see swimsuit prices, I want to shout, "Who would PAY that?" (One bikini set went like this in a magazine: $45 for bottoms, $60 for the top. I mean WTH? That much for a little material?")
However. My birthday was coming up, and Tom said I could get what I wanted. So I decided to get the swimsuit. It had fabulous reviews.
I went with this one:
Now, my conundrum was this: what size should I get? The page suggested to get a size up from what you normally wear. Well, what I normally wear is size 5/6/7. It depends on the brand. To be safe, I went with a size 10.
The swimsuit arrived about a week later and I thought, "Here we go." I am glad I went with a size 10, because I did have to tug at it a bit.
"I probably shouldn't have eaten all those McDonalds fries!" I said.
I got it up and I liked it. The only problem is I have small boobs. 34 A boobs, to be exact. The swimsuit sort of swims over them, but it's okay, who looks at my boobs anyway? I asked Tommy what he thought of my new swimsuit and he was like, "Hold on, I'm mining," because he was playing Minecraft on his PS4. He eventually looked over and went, "I guess it's okay?"
I'll take it.
I asked him to take a photo of me. He went, "But people might destroy my town." I gave him a Look and he went, "Okay. Fine. Real quick."
I recommend the swimsuit if you like the retro style. Yes my cellulite is visible behind me, but it is what it is. I am not a size 0, nor will I ever be a size 0. I like to eat. I cannot get excited about kale and green smoothies.
I'm ready for the pool this summer.
Are you comfortable in your swimsuit?
