Swimsuits are Like Haircuts

It doesn't matter what they look like in the picture, they will not look the same on you!

Yes, today, for the first time this summer I took Ellie to the public pool, which means I had to wear a swimsuit. Not my favorite thing to do. I mean, what woman...let me try again, what MOM likes to wear a swimsuit?

And when you have small children, it is not just modesty you have to worry about, but you have to stand in front of a mirror and bend, squat, and lean in unnatural ways to ensure that no body part or hidden area will peek out to say hi. Because let's face it, when you have small children you do end up bending, squatting, and leaning in unusual ways. Either chasing a kid, saving them from going under water, or having them hold on to you for dear life!

So after today and the wide array of styles, I was left longing for the swimsuits of old times. Those beautiful little dresses that were appropriate and covered everything that needed to be covered.
I mean, why not?

And how, how did we go from little dresses to something that covers even less than underwear?

Maybe I am on to something, maybe I should start a new swimsuit company that targets moms. Then we can all wear cute little dresses that compliment our body and will for sure cover all the stretch marks and lose skin that quite frankly need to be covered.


  1. I think that is a great idea!

    You should also check out they have some great swimswear that not only protects from te sun but also keeps you quite covered. There are also some modest swimswear companies out there.

  2. Lands End makes some nice suits that are modest, functional and look great.

  3. I got a decent swim-dress @ Walmart - covers what needs to be!

    Perhaps this company might interest you?

  5. If you did, I would buy one!
