Where there are rules, there are rule breakers.
Age should not be a factor when deciding on a bathing suit - unless of course you're too young to make such decisions. But for adult women, it's not about age, it's about what works for you.
Swim suit designers continue to create new fabrics that hold it together and stop the sunlight from shining through. Patterns and carefully inserted control panels make the wearer appear 10 pounds lighter just by putting on the suit. Of course, the reality of wearing such a suit is similar to wearing a sausage skin. You are packed in there.
What's a woman to do?
NanciArvizu, What do you think of diving suit-like waterwear or tankini tops with cycling shorts for cold-water swims?
So good to hear! I will have to check out the website.
I have several one piece swumsuits, All are modest, with no wild cutouts, and sensible lengths for the legs, not those high cut ones. I do need one more, and you mentioning the tankini style reminded me to look at those.
BTW - i really got a chuckle out of your 'bandages and dental floss' remark. As a Florida resident and frequent cruiser, I've certainly suffered through the sight of plenty of those!
Thank you Claudia for the comment! I wish I could get 2 or 3 suits, but really, why? Other than just wanting a different style. I'm not wearing them so much anyone would notice! (lol)
I'm well over 40 and got a nice one piece...I forget what it's called...but similar to what you show above. It is comfortable, I do wish I'd gotten a solid color like you show, however.
I love the tankini, but a nice one piece works too. That's the key, finding what works for you! And trying on all those suits is a workout ;0
I recently bought a new one-piece swimsuit, but now that you mention it I should have looked for a two-piece tankini! :D
