So yesterday I went and bought some bathers - well there are 4 pieces to these bathers as I have trouble getting bathers to fit my body shape - sigh.
There is a swim bra, some swim knickers with a little skirt and a ruched swim top and a little pair of swim shorts. All in black - plus I bought some really lovely (3 in fact) cotton cover up tops which are so nice I think I might wear them at other times too.
But the reality is, I look like a black sausage that has very white legs, the swim pants are a little big I realised when I got home and it is a good thing I bought the little shorts, otherwise there are bits of me that no one should see that might flash to the world - if you get my drift - sigh.
Now I know I will never look like this (I don't think I did even when I was a size 12 back when I was a teenager).
I sort of look my like this from the back - but it is the front view that worries me - I am telling you people - a very lumpy sausage is the best I can do in sharing without actually taking a photo and that I am not prepared to do.
So will this be another waste of money, will they languish in my wardrobe while I continue to wear my very loose top and long (below the knee) leggings to swim in. I just think that I may draw more attention to myself looking like a sausage than I do swimming in clothes - sigh.
Now my hubby, bless his cotton socks, says I look fine - but he loves me so I can't trust his opinion, I can only trust the mirror - and that my friends scares even me - sigh.
