Thoughts for Thursday: the bathing suit struggle is real

Thursday, March 26, 2015

With summer quickly approaching and a trip to Key West in 35 short days [more on that later], I am in dire need of some new bathing suits. Lets just say I'm not exactly the size I was in college or high school. Remember when you could eat like crap at all hours of the day and not gain an ounce? Yea, those days are gone. It's time I stop pretending that my large butt fits into Victoria Secret bottoms anymore. The clock is just ticking until I'm in cute one-pieces. Hubs is not exactly thrilled with that idea. So we compromised: I will wait for one-pieces until I'm preggo ;) Insert: panic attack. Where do people shop for bathing suits these days?? I spent an hour on the internet and every bathing suit I found was $100+… no thank you. So I texted Meghan for advice [duh!] and she says try Old Navy. And surprise! I had luck!

Unfortunately they didn't have a huge selection to choose from, but I'm hoping it's still early and that they will have more to offer closer to summer. I scored this bathing suit and cover up for just over $60! I got a large cover-up because I like the added length to the bottom. Hence: COVER up my butt. Plus, it has a drawstring waist so that you can make it as tight as you'd like around the waist. And it's super light-weight… essential for NC summers!


So the question is… where do you guys shop for reasonably priced bathing suits? Help a girl out!!

Linking up with Annie!

  2. I always buy mine after the season is over, and it lasts me into the next summer -- last year I got my top from Anthropologie and it was on sale for $40! However, I am not ready for it to be swimsuit time yet!

  3. I love what you found! J.Crew Factory has some great options, too! I love the cover-up you snagged! xo

  4. Love the suit you snagged! Target always has super inexpensive options (like, you wear them for one season and that's good enough for the price!). Have you looked online at Victoria Secret? There are wayyy more options for styles and prices online!

  6. 6pm.com has some great options - I found a ton of very cute bikinis and coverups for my recent trip to Mexico. Good luck!

  7. I just purchased an adorable one piece (my first one!) with crochet down the middle from Target for just $40. I don't anticipate it lasting for forever, but for that price, I am ok with that! I usually order from Victoria's Secret, but will plan to wait until the end of the season when they go on deep discount!:)
