Bathing Suits I'm Loving

Let's chat bathing suits...'tis the season, right?! What sparked this post is that upon moving, I went through all of my swimsuits. Years worth, and decided what fit well, what I truly loved and what had seen better days.

I realized that a lot of the suits I had were no longer my taste or 'in' and a lot of them had seen better days! So, I got rid of around 15 bathing suits. 

I was then left with very few to choose from so I started shopping for some new ones. When did swimsuits get SO expensive? I am of the belief that you should always choose fewer high-quality pieces (which often comes with a higher initial price tag), but when it comes to bathing suits, they really only last a few years so there is no point in spending a ton. 

I have purchased a few pricey suits from brands like Marysia and Solid and Stripe, and while I really do love them, they aren't really THAT much nicer than my $30 Target swimsuits. 

So, here we are, I have rounded up some of my favorite swimsuits. Some are still pricey, but I am sharing a lot of affordable swimsuits, too. I personally prefer a full-coverage/more modest swimsuit... I think there is a time and place for a sexy, fun swimsuit but for me, those times are few and far between.

So I am all about finding one that is cute, full coverage, quality, not too pricey, and not matronly looking...finding all of these qualities in one suit is tough.

I need a new bathing suit bad however I'm still trying to lose a few pounds !! It's tough trying suits on only to look in the mirror and be incredibly embarrassed.

Right?!!? I've never splurged on any super pricey swimwear (ok, granted I did get my daughters two Lilly suits that were like $78 and died a little inside but I had a gift card and they were swim DRESSES so they wear them more places than just the pool...), but I do rotate through a decent amount of swimsuits through the years. I have a small pile I need to discard now. I've been holding onto a triangle top string bikini from when I was 17 (lol) that doesn't serve me at all these days and a boy short pair from 2003. Goodness!!!
