Well, I had to buy a new bathing suit. Horrible thought!
First I went to Dillard's and got one of the real expensive ones with the underwires in the bra and all that stuff and went and tried it on. It was awful! I would rather appear naked! At least when you're naked the rolls of flesh kind of smooth out - this suit made me look as if I was made of multiple sausage rings! Or like the Michelin man.
After that I was going to just give up and sit in the sun wearing shorts and a halter top - or maybe an artfully draped sarong. However, I decided to go to Steinmart.
I tried on several tankini parts, pretty unstructured and in different sizes, and guess what? I didn't look too bad. Plus I had seen the same suit pieces at Dillard's for twice the price!!!
