Swim Suit + Cover-up Roundup | 2016
Summer has arrived and I need a new swim suit! Not only do I have the regular summer activities coming up, I also have a few summer trips planned, and our annual trip to Kauai. Time to get to shopping!
Okay, things are about to get real right now. I hope you look at me the same way after I tell you my difficulties with swim suits. - I'm not crazy about swim suits. I can never seem to find one that I look right in. Bikinis aren't enough material, one pieces are too much, and I just don't go near the thought of a tankini. I'm not about these new bottoms that show your entire butt and I can't handle how low the average swim suit sits - it's slightly uncomfortable and my bottoms always fall off when I jump in the pool. I don't do high waisted anything, so that's not an option. I like the idea of a cute white swim suit, but the second I go near one the thought of all the things that could go wrong while wearing it scares me away. I'm not crazy about patterns, but I don't like things to be too plain. I have small boobs so I don't fill out a lot of tops, but I have semi-broad shoulders and a large ribcage, so thick bands look odd. I hate the strings on standard triangle tops because unlike a lot of girls I don't tan at the pool/beach, I swim (and maybe wrestle Cody/play obnoxious child-like pool games) and they get tangled or come untied. Same thing with bottoms that tie on the side - I can't tell you the number of times those have come straight off while swimming. Yikes! And lastly bandeau style tops - no thanks. Those don't do anyone any favors.
THE STRUGGLE IS REAL YOU GUYS.
I've collected all the swim suits I'm keeping my eye on. I still haven't decided which one to get, if I end up getting any of these, but I thought I would share them with you! I've also included a few cover-ups because you always need one of those!
Where do you usually get your swim suits from? If you have any recommendations for my struggle of a swim suit search, leave them below. I need all the help I can get!
