More Pear than Hourglass (June Photos, Day 26)


The swim suit saga continues.  Went shopping today (handy, since that was the basis of the photo prompt) ,and tried on more suits than I care to remember.  Too small.  Too big.  Too SI Swimsuit Edition.  All too something.  Now, I gave up on the idea of having a perfect body almost four decades ago, so I wasn’t surprised by this difficulty, but I was annoyed. 

Anyway, I finally found a suit I thought I could live with, though I can admit it may have been mostly that I was just getting worn down.  I knew it was a tiny bit too loose, but figured better that than the opposite.  Unfortunately, I didn’t take into consideration the fact that I was trying on while wearing my own undergarments, which were providing an extra layer.  Once I got home and didn’t have my bra on, too loose.  Not as potentially revealing as my old one, and in much better shape—and much cuter—, so I guess it’s still a win.  But I just can’t believe that after all of that rigmarole, I still may have to consider alterations.  Ugh.

Also (and this is a little bit of a complaint), I hate that so much of the weight I’ve lost had to come off the top.  I mean, seriously, as much butt as I have left, you’d think I could trade at least a little bit of that for just a tiny bit more boob!

On the other hand, at least the results of the shopping expedition made for a decent photo.

26.  Where You Shop


  1. it looks nice :) pleased you found one after all that
    shopping can be frustrating cant it

  2. Frustrating for sure. I'm certain that those skin-and-bone model types have their own share of problems, but every once in a while I'd like to be them just for the sake of easier clothes shopping.
