Believe it or not, bathing suit season is fast approaching. Suits are filling the stores, so you need to shop now for the best selection. I have a couple of tips when shopping...
1. Make sure this is the only thing you shop for on this trip. It can be overwhelming when you are trying to find multiple items on your shopping list. You will most likely be hitting several stores so pack your stamina too.
2. Realize that your body is what it is and if you want to enjoy the sun this season, you need to find something that works. Don't lament over the pounds you haven't lost or the lack of muscle tone. Have confidence!
3. You will have to go up in size. Don't fret - The swimwear companies hve not changed their sizing like the regular stores have. Get the size that COVERS you!
Here are some stores and websites I like for suits with great return policies.
Eddie Bauer... $146.00. Miracle suit with great coverage. The ruching covers the tummy well.
Soma...$96 for the top and $48 for the bottom. Not only great for sleepwear, check out more options on-line or in their stores.
Athleta...$62 for the top and $46 for the bottom. this is my FAVORITE place to buy becuase they have several pieces to mix and match with print and solid. They have great coverups and the prices are great. Look for thier first store in Houston to open in Town & Country in May.
White Houst Black Market...$92. Surprise - they have swimwear. It is really cute and a little old school - think Esther Williams! In stores and on-line.
Target... top - $30, bottom - $26. I was pleasantly surprised to find the Spanx lower priced line called Assets in Target offers swimwear. Much more on line to choose from than in store.
