Damn you, swimsuit season

Oh, how I hate summer. I mean, I LOVE summer, but I HATE putting on a swimsuit. And most of all, I hate shopping for a swimsuit.

I hate it so much that I wore the same top for 8 years, and even when the back clasp broke, I continued to wear the top and kept using the MacGyver-ified grey rope that held the back together. For like 3 years. I'm sure Slim will remember because it all went down at the lake on their pontoon boat.

Anyway, one of my requirements is that the bottoms be shorts, not some skimpy bottom. Mr. Sasha doesn't understand, but the backs of your legs at 34 just don't look like the back of your legs at 18. Even if I was underweight, the yuckiness would still be there.....

Anyway, I am thinking about getting this suit but am not sure which print I like best. Opinions please?


Heat Wave Print

Ebbtide Print (on model above)
Beach Breeze print

oh, cute suit. I like the beach breeze (last one). Good luck! I had good luck this year with Lands Ends suits.

Very cute suit! I've never tried one with shorts, but that's what I need. However, my stomach is gross too - so the bikini top would be scary for me. I love the ebbtide print.

I love the suit on the model. I usually suck it up and just wear regular bottoms with a tankini but I might go the shorts route this year, if I find one like this! I love it...where is it from???

I actually just got the suit (same top/different bottoms)in the Beach Breeze print and LOVE it. I have several things from them and really like the fit and quality.

i bet your legs are great! You are a runner for crying out loud!

oh.. I dont have any hair secrets, my hair stylest is a good friend, and very honest with me. Thanks for the compliment though!

I agree, beach breeze! Jealous that you have the tummy to wear that!

Are those from the Athleta catalog? I bought 2 last year with the swim shorts and holy crap they rocked. It's a bathing suit w/o the anxiety of flabby/ass thighs grossing everyone out!
They are all cute, you couldn't go wrong.

Love those suits! After two Csections, I think I'll have to skip on the bikini thing (at least until my tummy tuck). I have always bought my suits from Victoria's Secrets-the miracle bra ones and the body by Victoria ones are good at disguising.

I vote for the one on the model! I like that print best.

i like the beach breeze suit! good luck with the search! i've had the same bathing suit since gosh for like 5 or 6 years...never can find one that fits just right...

I like the one on the model. The pattern isn't loud enough to draw attention to areas I'd personally not want to draw attention to. Not that you have that "I've eaten Manhattan and it's all sitting on my arse" problem.

I like the one on the model. I'd love to be able to wear a suit like that!

My problem is the saggy stretch marked belly. I have to wear tankinis to cover up the c-section pooch :(

I think you should splurge and get the first two suits. Lord knows you have some making up to do if you've been wearing the same suit for 8 years! Just think... if you got two, you wouldn't have to do this again for 16 years!

I personally like the one on the model. Good luck with your suit - I've always hated shopping for suits.
