I was pretty down in the dumps about my inability to find a decent bathing suit, because I really wanted to feel good about myself while hanging out at the beach.
Your comments helped me so much. And I thought, there's got to be something out there for me to wear. I googled where the best place to buy bathing suits, and then the type of bathing suit you should wear with a muffin top and I got some good suggestions.
It also said to find something you will feel good about yourself in.
So I decided to be brave and try one more time. I headed to Old Navy and found a black tankini--it's cute, I think I look pretty good in it, so unless they had trick mirrors up in the dressing room, hopefully that will do the trick.
I am feeling much better about hanging out at the beach and can't wait to go on vacation!
