I don’t know a soul who likes to buy swimsuits. Shopping for them usually leaves women feeling fat and ugly.
This makes me sad, as when I see a swimsuit, I see the promise of summer and sunshine. Yes, they show off my belly chub and flat out fat thighs, but dammit, I’m a woman who likes to eat. I do eat in moderation, but if the price for that piece of tiramisu is these thunder thighs? Then dammit, bring on the cocoa powder.
Anywho, I had no intention of purchasing a new swimsuit this year. I have three that fit me from over the years. They are in various states of wear, but all of them are acceptable to don in public.
Then a friend forwarded me this e-mail from Land’s End showing me that it has this 30 percent off sale going on through the weekend. It includes clearance, and I managed to put myself together a bathing suit for $16.04. That’s with shipping. To top it off, she swears the brand of swimsuits are extra well-made.
Naturally, I have to share: Go to Land’s End. Feel good, for once, about buying swim suits, because you can make it happen for less than $20.
I went with this top half (I’m having issues with the pics) and these bottoms. They’re both in “deep sea,” which probably isn’t the most exciting color, but it was the one that allowed me to put together a suit in my size that matched. I do love that yellow, but I totally already have a yellow-polka-dot bikini. It makes me happy.
So! Go forth. Buy swimwear. Spent little.
