Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I just got a "tankini", which is better than a bikini for those of us with less-than-model-perfect figures. (I feel pretty comforable in it, anyway.) It's a dark blue. The boyfriend says he likes it (although maybe he's just being polite.)
Ever since I was a young girl, getting a new swimsuit has always been a highlight of this time of year.
When I go to the beach these days I walk on the beach, look in the rock pools for interesting wildlife, and then go to the amusement arcade and finally the pub.
My other problem is that as soon as I wear anything skimpy in the sun, I have to plaster myself from head to foot in factor 700 sun cream or I fry myself.
Still, any excuse to go shopping! I think a tankini would be good - I like the ones with the bottoms like little shorts if you know what I mean.
The weather here in the UK is getting very nice this week :)
Usual shopping session last for about a week, and the symptoms are :
extreme distress of mind
sleeplessness and disorientation
symptomatic over stimulation of the "verbomotor" brain center
switching obsessive fixation on various body parts every hour
After she finally spend 90 $ on a square foot of fabric, she will suffer intense insecurity for another week. During that time she will try to validate her choice with every one she knows (other females will usually b*tch her, in a subtle or even imaginary way). She will also cheat with artificial tanning sessions so she is just 'right' for the season.
I guess the final test will be wearing it in public and trying to look relaxed with a heart beat of 180. After 15 minutes of intense satisfaction, she will fall exausted and catch a sunburn.
When I need a swimsuit, I just pick the first boxer shorts on top of the pile.
They do have a bonus feature, though. Because they were cheap, and cheaply made, with cheap dies, they have a habit of inducing a chemicla reaction when the chlorine from a pool gets mixed with the detergent when you wash them. This results in them changing color every time I was them after I've been to a pool (though not after swimming in fresh water).
Original color: Grey. They have since been a dark burgundy, a light blue, a blotchy tan color, and are, at present, a shimmering bronze color.
it's not quite a tankini - but rather a soft cotton dark blue denim "cowgirl" style - so the top is a halter that comes down in a "V" to just above the belly button - and has suede drawstrings for accents.
BUT... I wore it at the hot tub in Telluride later in March & pretty much ruined it in the chlorine anyway- it's now mostly purple, rather than blue. still cute, but I should have known better that it wouldn't hold up to massive amounts of chlorine. a few of us dyed our suits in that hot tub that week!
I sometimes feel like I'm a leper because life never struck me as a catwalk.
My girlfriend's biggest passion in life is fashion and yet beyond commercial exploitation I don't even understand the concept... it seems comparable to walking into a bar and choosing a beer based on what you suspect your mates will think of you when they see you drinking it.
I might really freak out the locals and wear a thong...
.. or not!
I don't swim too much, would rather be tapping on a keyboard somewhere. But, the last few times that I have taken the plunge, it was immediately after shucking whatever clothing I did have on. What's a swimsuit?
grandpa, if you'd simply registered a new account under a nice imaginative nick like 'geekgirl' to post that, it would have made my morning.
I did make it to the pool and hottub late one night in orlando, but there was no party going on. Vegas may be a better atmosphere for a pool party. I drink strongbow; It's so very heavy.
It must be great to be a guy. Comfy shorts, comfy swim trunks, comfy pants, comfy shoes. Clothing is obviously designed by men to punish women. I hold on tightly to the fact that I won't go bald or grow hair on my ears. ;)
