Bathing suit shopping is stressful at the best of times. Last minute "I'll take whatever I can get!" shopping is exponentially less delightful. I'm checking out Newport News, since they seem to have stock available, but I have no idea what to buy.
In case you need a visual, here goes: I'm medium-tall with long legs (curvy thighs and skinny calves), a stumpy torso, generous hips and a bit of a belly (I'm - at the very, very least - five pounds more than I ought to be. More like fifteen if I'm being honest*). Bikinis are out. No way, no how. EVER. Tankinis are a possibility (for example. this or this). Is it better to go for a one-piece, though (as in this or this)? Or a swimdress (like this or this or, were I to magically lose those fifteen pounds in the next two weeks, this)?
meh. Off to scowl at tauntingly slim models some more.
*It's not all my fault, I swear. It's partly medication, partly other. Doesn't make me any less cranky. Someday I'll tell you all about it. We'll laugh and laugh...
