This summer my goal was to find a swimsuit that would cover up trouble areas like my tummy while still being flattering. Let’s be honest, a six pack is hard to come by when you’re juggling a full-time job and two kids. So I searched high and low and, alas, I found a Jessica Simpson Monokini from Macys.com and decided to order it. When I received it in the mail, my first reaction was wow this is really pretty and when I tried it on, I thought, this is gorgeous! But, *sigh* it sagged a little in the midsection and no matter how much I tried to adjust it, it just didn’t fit right (a small is really a medium and it doesn’t come in XS). So I had to face reality and return it. So back to the store it went. 🙁
Nevertheless, I kept searching and found the Becca by Rebecca Virtue halter bikini online at Bloomingdales. it was really pretty online and so I said what the hey and went ahead and ordered it. Well, all I can say is that the photo online did not do it justice. The colors are more vibrant in person and it is definitely flattering. Albeit to say, I’m still showing my tummy but I’ll just have to suck it in, suck it in (in a singsong voice) so that I can wear this gorgeous swimsuit.
