Four months ago I was sporting quite the pregnancy bod. I gained 50lb with Little Bean, and while I’m still working off the last 15, I’ve been feeling pretty good in my post-baby body until….
Bathing Suit Season.
*cue the dun dun duuuun here*
DAMN what is it about wearing a bathing suit that reduces me to a self-conscious 17 year-old little girl?
Maybe it’s because I was a self-conscious 17 year-old girl who would refuse to be seen in anything but a big baggie t-shirt and umbros (remember those?) I’ve always dreaded wearing a bathing suit. Always.
Knowing that all my current suits were not going to fit this slighter larger ass and thicker midsection, I ordered a new suit on a whim a week before our beach vacation.
Thankfully, I just happened to receive a Lands’ End catalog with discounted swimwear in time. Leafing through I was happy to see an array of Swim Dresses more than half off.
I ordered the Women’s Regular All-over Control Slender Grecian Swimdress in black. The only color they had left.
Honestly, it is AMAZING! At first I was worried. Trying it on was quite the challenge–like stuffing sausage into a second skin, but once on… WOW! Very flattering! At least I thought it was and really, that’s all that matters. A comfortable mom is a happy mom, especially on the beach.
Here are a few pics of the suit and me in it.
