Off to Kohl's I went. I'm a sucker for a good deal, and I had seen some cute swimsuits online that were worth checking out. I found a surprisingly good selection! I usually do my swimsuit shopping at Target, but I have been frustrated with the quality of their clothes lately so I opted for Kohl's this time. I'm glad I did! In a short amount of time, I found myself with arms full of many many options. I swallowed my fear, and went into the nearest dressing room to see what I was up against.
I know I'm not alone on this, but isn't swimsuit shopping the worst thing in the world? Way worse than jean shopping. I was not looking forward to seeing the way the swimsuits accentuated the flaws in my body that I'm already too aware of. But we do what we must do...and so I tried them all on.
And they fit. And they fit well. I actually felt cute in a swimsuit for the first time in years. I'm not saying that I'm going to be swimsuit model material anytime soon (or ever really), but I found swimsuits that I was comfortable in. I liked not just the fit, but the way my body looked in them--I was actually comfortable in them. It was probably the greatest NSV I've had to date.
So I bought three different swimsuits to celebrate. :)
You will have to wait until I post pictures from my trip to see them in their full glory, but here's a photo from one that I bought:
They didn't have those cute bottoms, so I got one with a black skirt instead and it was super flattering. Loves it. Can't wait to wear it in the ocean!! If I don't post much over the next couple of weeks, you know why! :)
