A couple weeks ago, my bloggy buddy Andrea included me in this Tweet here.

Which led me to buy this gem:

And, no surprise here, it’s got polka dots.

Oh, and don’t even get me started on the embroidered anchor. It’s just that cute.

I was genuinely surprised when I forwarded the lovely picture to my wonderful and amazing husband and got this quick reply: “Buy it, buy it now, no matter the cost”.
WHA You say?!?! I mean, when all is said and done, it costs more than half of what my wedding dress cost.
He. Didn’t. Care.
He was excited neurotic me found a bathing suit I actually liked. See, I’m what you’d refer to as a “suit snob”. I’ve never had a swimsuit I actually liked, ever. Even when I was in college and weighed abucknothin‘.
The main problem I’ve had with suits is that I’ve got some rather ::ahem:: large chesticles. We’re talking sideshow here folks. Nothing keeps these puppies in. Nothing until this swimsuit! For some reason though, it just wasn’t laying right on me, so I took it into the tailor’s.
I did and…

I FINALLY got my bathing suit back from the tailor’s where they
took it in 2 WHOLE INCHES!

Yeah, I just yelled at you. I just yelled that my tailor, the faboosh Miss Veronica took my new bathing suit in!
I couldn’t be more happy, can ya tell? It’s not like I’ve lost any weight, but it seems to have either A) turned into muscle or B) gone to another place on my bod.
Who knows, and who cares!

This morning I took M to the pool in my new-and-improved suit, and got tons of compliments! I was so excited, and my confidence shot through the roof. I also didn’t have to worry about strapping the “girls” down, or worry about the “spillage”. My suit fit, and I was happy.

So, in conclusion, I want to thank you Andrea of Mommysnacks.net & Lolita Girl Clothing. You’ve made my days at the pool THAT. MUCH. BETTER.
