Glutton for Punishment

I just made the very grave decision to look at the swimsuits on the Victoria's Secret website.

And from Ordinary Angels, I hear Micah's voice in my head:
"What the hell were you thinking?!"

They've got all kinds of categories:
Beach Sexy
Miracle Bra
Very Sexy
Body by Victoria
Shop by Top
Shop by Designer
Shop by Category
Destination: Summer
Must Haves

And I found myself mumbling, "How about a "I'm 33 and I Weigh More Than 90lbs and I Just Want to Cover My Ass" category? Where's that one?"

They don't have that category.

Oh, but Newport News does. They're ugly, but they cover yer tush.


That's okay. My cheap little suit suffice for the mere week I need it. That's one of the perks of living in Seattle. You don't really need to have a swimsuit. Unless you're one of those water lover types that likes to swim and kayak and crap. Luckily, I am not one of those people.

I prefer wool sweaters, thankyouverymuch.

So you really want the "scoop" back bottoms. Full coverage. They have a few like that on the VS site...

Not that I would know...

Swimsuit shopping sucks! The only reason I have a swimsuit this year is because it was on clearance at Old Navy for $20 and it covered everything.

There is absolutely nothing worse than bathing suit shopping - and I mean nothing. Looking at a VS catalog - makes you feel just great about yourself, doesn't it? And even if you order the "scoop" back bottoms, you probably need to order a size larger than what you normally wear!
