So while some of my fellow bloggers splurge on adorable Middle Earth dresses, my weakness is swim suits. I have so many already; 90% of them are too degraded to wear, but I keep ’em anyway in the back of my closet. Seriously, a few were worn until the fabric hung in shreds, so they look like they would be fantastic props in Jurassic Park: Plesiosaur Edition.
But no worries guys! I bought more! Whew.
Today I just got two in the mail from our new favorite swim supplier. For all you ladies, this is a style I forgot to mention in my last video! They’re both two-pieces, so while they take a little confidence, they can be pretty comfy and allow for a wider range of motion. They’re even specially designed so a hard push off the wall doesn’t mean you’ll be scrabbling for a kickboard to cover yourself. Check ’em out:
I took the blue Sporti one for its inaugural swim in the pool tonight, and I’m pretty happy with it. While it’s a bit tight, the chlorine will soon take its toll and loosen it up. Also, remember how I told you in the video how the parts pressed tight against skin aren’t affected by contact with cholorine as much? There’s already a color difference between the outside of the suit and the little edging bits on the inside. No bueno! This one might not be in it for the long haul, unfortunately. Still, I’ll take it for $15 over $60 Nike ones anyday.
