Bathing Suits

It's summer and we live in Florida so there's no way to escape wearing a bathingsuit.

My abs are actually much flatter than they were the summer after Annika was born but they still aren't back to normal yet. My legs aren't too bad, I just need a few more weekend runs and they should be back to normal too.

But my bathing suit tops, that's the issue.

I've always worn two piece bathingsuits. I have a weird torso (I think anyway) and have never been able to find a one piece that fits properly. My big issue now is that I have no boobs. No, they aren't small, I have NONE. They have gone away forever. I used to fill out an A cup (which is already small) and after Annika I was measured at Victoria's Secret and the lady sadly told me they do not carry my size (32AA). Well, those 32AA's that I bought in the children's department of Target are now too big which means all of my bathing suit tops are also big.

Luckily I have one bandeau style top that seems to work fine but all my bikini triangle tops and halter tops are done. Looks like I'll have to get some new tops from someplace now!

I like to mix my bathingsuits up too so my plan is to write down all the colors and styles for the bottoms that I have and then buy a maybe two or three tops that will match them all.

Aaaahhh...bathing suit season....


  1. I have the same problem as you up top. I'm the same size also and it's quite sad. One pieces don't work on me - I've never found them flattering with a small chest. Lately I have been wearing the tankini style. If you can find the right shape top it seems to fit well. I have found cute suits and Target before.

    I also had bra's that I bought in the Target children's department. It's so hard to find something that fits well!

  2. Bathing suits are always such a challenge. Hope you have luck. I did want to say how awesome it is that you are almost back to where you want to be. Any advice on starting a running program? My sister and I want to do a half marathon by the end of the year.

  3. I hate shopping for bathing suits! Good luck!
