What Swimsuit Style Do You Wear Now?

Posted by Marsha on

Swimsuit styles come and go from our closets.  Our tastes change.  Our modesty levels change.  What we used to wear, we can no longer wear or we no longer want to wear for whatever reasons.  Either we think we are too fat, too old, too out of shape, or too cool for that old swimsuit style.  

When I was young, I would not be caught wearing a bikini.  I was self-conscious and couldn't stand my pale, skinny limbs AND belly showing for all the world to see.  As I have aged, I have developed a healthy amount of apathy.  I simply want comfort and with a long torso, that usually means a bikini.  Bathrooms are no longer a problem, either.  So, now I have a storage container full of swimwear, but a majority of the pieces are tan through bikinis!  

As my weight increases, though, my apathy wanes.  I don't want anyone to see my fat, pale limbs AND belly sticking out for all the world to see.  This is the main reason that I keep a few one piece swimsuits in my beachwear collection for such occasions.  

My age hasn't really affected my swimsuit choices, though.  I have come to like the string bikini.  Last summer, I wore almost exclusively bikinis with string tops and either string bottoms or traditional bikini bottoms.  When I lose my winter (and spring and summer) fluff, I will go back to my bikinis because they are the most comfortable and liberating.

Let us know what your favorite swimsuit style is.  If we do not offer it on our website, let us know and we will consider offering it in a coming swimwear line.  As always, we welcome comments and suggestions from our customers.

I'll see you all next time.  I hope you have a great week in the sun!
