I dedicate this week’s Throwback Thursday to the swimsuit dilemma. So… yup… you are seeing correctly. Last year around this time I tried on a bikini top. Everyone was raving on the Torrid website about how awesome their bathing suits are so I wanted to see for myself.
*As a side note…It doesn’t take much convincing to get me to go to my favorite store!
They are as amazing as people say! I never put on a swimsuit before (pre-boobs) that held them up like a bra. Usually every one that I have ever owned was very non supportive. I flipped and I flopped before I even get into the water!
This top was the exact opposite. They even have a piece in the cup that gives you extra lift… not that I particularly need the extra push… I was happy enough that they weren’t dangling at my knee caps.
Did I buy it you ask?
Heck no! It’s a bikini top! It shows way to much skin! I look like a beached whale remember?
That’s what you were told you. You’re an embarrassment. I can’t pull this off. Get one of those tankini tops. At least it will hide your tummy. You’ll still be fighting the status quo but in secret. No one has to know! Baby steps you don’t want to rush it anyway.
The 60 or 70 something dollar price tag for only the top also bought it a speedy one way ticket back to the racks. It was fun to try on though. I can dream of a world where this is acceptable for me to wear… Can’t I?
I’ll get old waiting for everyone in the world to accept me wearing a two piece to the beach. Why wait when I can do it now? Remember that long list of things I accomplished last year? Well this year I will completely conquer all the remaining beach fears. This year I decided that I will do it. I will use my Torrid haute cash coupons and purchase me a two piece swimsuit. I win in two ways. First, I get a nice swimsuit… one that has recently caught my online-window-shoppers-eye. Second, with the haute cash I’ll get it for half the original price! Plus I think I am owed an annual anniversary 10 coupon this month and I have another 10 dollar award… because well I shop too much and this is Torrid’s way of enabling me… Man I love coupons!
Only one question remains… Left or right?
I’m leaning towards the left but I can’t decide!
