The last time I bought a swimsuit was 1984. Okay, so two years ago, more like. But a bikini is a hilarious joke ha ha and post-twins, I'm 1piece4lyf. Which is fine. Still. Swimsuits aren't my favorite thing to shop for. Which is why I have bought two of them in nine years. Which is why I'm writing this post because I know zero women who are like, "WOOHOO! Let's go bathingsuit shopping! How fun does that sound?!"
Okay, I know one woman who's like that. And if I had the same smoking ass bod, I'd be a professional bathingsuit shopper. I'd also be naked right now and always and that would be my life. Naked life bathingsuit professional life naked.
Back to the reality of bathingsuit shopping four babies later...
At the end of the month I'm taking my kids to my parent's house for the week to hang by the pool and take a thousand pictures of sandy babies in the matching swimsuits I just bought them. (I guess I do love shopping for bathingsuits. For babies.)
Anyway. Since I've spent a good part of the last two days narrowing down my top five favorite one-piece bathingsuits on the Internet, behold:
Red & White Stripes from Esther Williams:
I went ahead and bought this one. Because I have the same suit (polka dots) and minus a little butt squeeze weirdness it's the most flattering suit ever ever. I actually feel sexy in it, which is muy importante. P.S. I'm currently weighing 158 at 5'8 and I ordered a size 10.
Polka Dots: J CrewI adore this suit and will quite possibly purchase it also. Would love to hear if any of you own this puppy? How does it fit? Also, how 'Merican am I today with my color scheme. Yankee Doodle went to town.
Only Gull in the World: Mod Cloth
I chose this suit for the name alone, actually. It's also sexy as hell but I'm afraid my D cups would runneth over. Or at the very least, my scars. Totally hot suit, though, don't you think?

Do not be deceived by the lack of childbearing hips, this suit is perfection and would look gorgeous on any and all shapes, sizes, skin tones, et al.
Care to share what you're wearing this summer? Anything fabulous I overlooked in my reluctant little search?
