There was a time that I didn’t even own a swimsuit. I didn’t lay out or go to the lake… Just didn’t need one.
And then I married Roy. We travel. We spend the weekend in Branson and use the pools and hot tubs so I bought a swimsuit. Just one. Technically, it’s a swim dress. When I was 17 and pregnant I went from a size 0 to a 14 in less than 9mths! Good bye string bikinis! Another reason not to have a swimsuit… stretch marks! 150 miles of stretch marks!
So Anyway, once we bought a pool, I bought many suits. I have so many, I’ve lost count! And I mostly just wear the bottoms when it’s just me and Roy. But for the next cruise, I want something new. So off I go to find something cute and that covers all the stuff I want covered… NO SUCH LUCK!!
All too tight! I don’t want to look like I a stuffed sausage!!
Or made for someone that 6 inches taller than me!!
And now I’m frustrated. I’ve thought about makin’ my own but there are no patterns available… odd! I suppose I could use my panties or my skorts to make the bottoms… hhhmm… something to think about.
But what I did was, grab the one I wanted in a size that is too big but I know I can alter to fit… it’s just as cute as it can be and only $25!
All the swimsuits that are made for us Fat Bottom Gals are so freakin’ expensive!! Another reason to make my own!
So the first thing I do when I get home is try it on… and I’ll be damned! It fits like a glove and is still super cute!!
I may go back and get another in a different color!
Moral of the story… by a swimsuit 2 sizes too big and be please that it super cute and to hell with what the tag says.. cut the damn thing out!
