I love seeing old ladies at the beach in bathing suits. Course, I am one of those old ladies now, and I think our baby boomer generation goes to the beach in a different fashion.
This is my version of the skirted bathing suit:
|One piece bathing suit: Longitude brand from Beall's, $50.|
Two things I look for in a bathing suit:
1. Good bra support
2. Coverage in upper thigh area.
You may have different criteria depending on your body and what you feel comfortable in. Love it if you feel comfortable in a string bikini!!!
I usually buy a one piece with good bust support then add my skirt. I swear by the little swim skirts that are after-all, like a mini-skirt (my favorite article of clothing!). I buy them separately to cover what most bathing suits don't provide. I stock up on them when they go on sale; a few of my favorites here.
|Skirts: Marshall's and TJ's; most under $10.|
For the one piece part of my equation, finding good bra support is harder, as many suits are a low "v" cut in front and that does not offer me much support. I have found that a high neck can offer the support I need. And I don't mind that it covers my décolletage; a tender area for sunburn.
Hello to all my friends at Patti's Visible Monday!
And YES, it took some courage to post these pics!
Sorry about the no drawings-- I am working on a larger project!
