operation: muffin top

Let us face the facts, shall we?:
-many of us have had kids
-most of us have dignity
-all of us dread bathing suit season 
Why aren't these in every bathing suit store?? Someone pleeeease tell me why on earth they are focusing on bringing back shoulder pads, rather than mass producing these timeless gems?....instead of ones that make me look like a dowdy early '90s mom. Some of us want to "rock what our mamma gave us" in a flattering one piece, and not look like we are bubble wrapped in a lycra floral pattern reject.  I do not have the luxury of a private beach....there are other people outside, and i am willing to bet most of them HAVE. EYES. Ones that can see me building a sand castle with the seven inch wedge that my butt ate for breakfast. and then again for a snack. Please don't get me wrong...BE. COMFORTABLE. IN. YOUR. OWN. SKIN....your body is a masterpiece...a gift! I couldn't care less if some perspective-less waif were judging my love-handles, and the sand covered chips i was eating...cause maybe i like my small curves.....but don't necessarily need to showcase my au naturale goods in four inches of fabric ;) So no matter your size, why can't we all just be rockin' this style?  But speaking of bathing suit season, let us be a bit nicer to ourselves...check it.
*but lets NOT bring back those sweet little swim caps....cause my face would look gi-normous :) Also....WEAR SUNSCREEN!!

Brooke said...

Hahahaha!!! This is why I love you so much! So freaking true! But no matter what swimsuit I wear I will always have stumpy frumpy legs...booooo!

Kara said...

hilarious. my favorite suit of all time is a one piece 50's number. putting myself into it this year is asking a bit much of the otherwise very forgiving ensemble.

You're hilarious! So true. I put shoulder pads in the fanny pack category (read:things that WILL NEVER BE COOL AGAIN. No matter what people say or how many ads they push.)

Carolyn said...

How is it that i picked out those exact suits? the yellow one is so amazing with the little ruffle. They were two of my top three picks. check out my blog, you have inspired me to post the alternative i bought for my honeymoon suit. <3

haha I'm sorry to hear you want to burn all triangle tops. Seeing how I have yet to bear children I do still love my tops. I hope you find your 50's one piece because we all need to admit they are fabulous.

This is great! Also, I own that little yellow number from Victoria's Secret and it's fabulous on.

Marianne said...

OH my gosh..I have found 2 of these fabulous 1 piece suits at TJ maxx. Totally old school! Love it!

Love&Marriage said...

geri said...

(and the word "muffin top" makes me smile.)
