A 2009 Los Angeles Times article states that the average dress size of a US woman is size 14, yet designers continuously make clothing for women in sizes much smaller than that. With 14 being average, one would think finding appropriate, fashionable clothing would be easy since the majority of women are in that size range. If you ever considered it easy, go swimsuit shopping if you’re anything above a size 6.
I had the pleasure of shopping for a swimsuit in a sporting goods store – one that carried all the popular designer brands – and ended up leaving empty handed and defeated. It was then that a friend reminded me that those designers make swimsuits and bikinis for androgenous looking girls who are all bones, no hips. A mommy needs a swimsuit that’s functionable and fashionable. Enter in SwimsuitsForAll.com.
With swimsuits ranging in size from 8-16 and 16W-24W, you’re bound to find something suitable for the beach, a vacation, or in my case mommy and me swimming at the local pool. I was looking for a swimsuit that wouldn’t be all er…showey…one that would keep everything contained should my 2 year old decide to use my chest as a climb and launch pad in the water.
The Longitude Color Block High Neck Swimsuit is perfect for this purpose. AND, should I get adventurous and actually join water aerobics this winter like I said I would, I can use it there as well.
The orange, yellow and pink color block pattern against the black ground breaks up the torso to slim and lengthen your body.
The conveniently high neckline provides extra coverage that will both support your bust and lengthen your torso, creating a long, lean silhouette.
I can’t remember the last time I wore a one-piece, so it felt weird putting it on for the first time, but I was impressed with the fit and comfort. I expected a one piece to expose every french fry sin but the tummy control is awesome. The fact that it’s on sale right now for $48 is great too – you can have a second swimsuit for activities with the kids without spending a fortune.
