As I grew older, I still kept the principles I had learned in my youth close to my heart. However, it has not always been easy. You see . . . I am a friggin giant. I can't go anywhere without people asking me, "Hey. How tall are you?" or "Do you play basketball?" I am 5'10" and I always wear heels. And I don't play basketball. I embrace my height fully--but, they just don't make clothes easy to find for women with my condition. Apparently, the average adult women in the United States is about 5'3".
So, you can imagine that swimsuit season is always a nightmare for me. How do you find a one piece swimming suit that fits properly (and is awesome) when you are freakishly tall?
I wish I could answer.
I have 5 swimming suits, and I don't like any of them.
I just tried on my 'favorite' of all the ill fitting nightmares, and I was unimpressed. A definitely 'good not great' moment.
If I could have any swimsuit in the world, it would be this one:
But, I am too cheap to even pay fiddy dollars. And it might have been made for a short person.
So, we move to other options.
I love this one . . . but guess what? They don't even make it anymore.
But, what if I ordered it, and it was totally unflattering?
So, basically, what I'm getting at is: I need help. Where can I find an awesome, flattering, and modest swimming suit on the cheap?
Is it even possible?
