Yesterday during my one-hour lunch break I ran to Macy's in desperate need of a bathing suit or two that I could actually wear in front of others. I've been wearing two-pieces from my pre-Jack era and although (surprisingly) the bottoms fit pretty good all of the tops have been way too small - plus I'm still working on my mid-section since baby.
I would probably just made due this summer, except that this weekend we are going to be in our swim gear in front of others. Cover-ups are good for walking around, but sitting on a boat in the Houston heat you want to be in as little as possible.
I ran into Macy's knowing one hour was pushing it to find the perfect suit - a must to try-on. To make it even harder, all of the suits had been moved from their normal area to a teeny and crammed space thrown on a few racks and all mixed up. I would have paid full price just to get some organization.
Due to lack of time, I went through and only grabbed suits with a Ralph Lauren tag...old faithful! I went into the dressing room with a mountain of options: two-pieces, one-pieces, tankinis and skirts.
Good news: I found two suits that looks really good on and are super comfortable
Bad news: I just can't rock a two-piece these days
That's okay! I'm working towards getting back to that one day. In the meantime, I LOVE the one-pieces that I found. They are both "tummy-control" but I love that the material isn't super thick so I'm hoping it won't be too hot. Very flattering and I will feel confident wearing these in public!
I have several great cover-ups to thrown on when walking around including this Pom-pom Tunic from J. Crew:
What do you wear when sporting a bathing suit in public? Do you dread bathing suit shopping as much as I do?
