Remember last month when I posted about the adorable polka dot swimsuit from J.Crew that I just had to have?
After a few of you mentioned how "me" it was, I caved and ordered it. And, well — hmm, how do I put this? — the girls, we'll call them Donna and Debbie (if you catch my drift), did not really fit in this suit. Not at all. It bordered between hilarious and offensive, and I was certainly not leaving my bedroom, let alone going to the beach, looking like that.
Talk about disappointment; it was so cute and a perfect fit otherwise, but the whole spilling-out-of-the-top part... not a good scene.
I reluctantly returned it and instead ordered the same suit I bought last year, but in a different color. This style has a variation for ladies with their own Donna and Debbie duo going on up top. I really like it, but I'm still mad at J.Crew for not offering the polka dot suit for the ladies with a little extra somethin'!
It has been a constant struggle over the last, oh, 15 years, to find swimsuits that fit right. Where do you find suits that fit your body the best?
