Is a bathing suit in your future?

There's nothing a woman dislikes more than the thought of bathing suit shopping.
Maybe that's just me.
If that's not you.....just humor me and tell me you hate it it too.
I don't want to be the only one....
It's an interesting conundrum, though.
I like bathing suits and I like shopping.
But, put them together and I get that odd stirring in the pit of my stomach....and it's not because I overate....
Milky white legs, a little bit of hair hanging out there, a wardrobe malfunction there, an unsightly bulge over there......well, you get the picture...
The visual is enough to make me pray for four more months of snow.....

So, I always find myself doing major research beforehand.
As in....I buy every magazine that has a promise splashed across it's cover that it can help readers find the best bathing for any body....even mine.
Now that I have my pile of magazines, it's time to put those magazines to the test....
As I do every year.....
Will I finally be victorious?
Will bathing suit shopping become as much fun as shoe shopping?
And, will I find the perfect bathing suit that shows off my weight loss, makes me look 30 years younger, gives me a lovely cleavage, covers my rumpled belly, doesn't slide up where it shouldn't slide up, doesn't slide down where it shouldn't slide down, makes my arms and legs look fit and sets my skin aglow?
Oh....and one that doesn't cost half my paycheck!
(oh shit, if it does all that....it can cost my whole paycheck!)
Stay tuned....

LOL I totally buy all the magazines too! The whole bathing suit thing was better this year than last...but still! I agree with Miss Vickie - you deserve it!

P.S. Did you hear Spanx has bathing suits now? I don't know if they are any good.....

oh man..I have tried some already this season...So I used to hate it because I was fat and looked horrible in them. Now I hate them because of the skin. I need one with a skirt to hide my saggy thighs and a longer shirt to hide my bulgy tummy. The suit people only let you choose one though..eek! Let us know if you find a good one. I will splash out a bit of cash to get a good one.
