I am one lucky lady! LB loves to give me attention, buy me pretty things, take me on vacations. He also likes to send me little “flashback” or “reminder” texts to brighten my day. Recently I received a text from him that read “only 6 weeks and 3 days till our tropical vacation”
I’m so excited!
This eventually prompted me to start thinking about my packing list:
- white halter and orange shorts
- red/blue striped off the shoulder and white shorts
- sun dress with lace up front
- sparkly flip flops
- floppy straw hat
- swim suit
Yep… it’s time to break out the swim suit again.
I’ll be having nightmares for the next six weeks
You can find a lot of blog posts that attempt to provide helpful information about what type of suit is appropriate for the over 40 age group.
I have a few suggestions of my own:
Just because you are over forty, doesn’t mean you have to resort to a suit that is boring, old-fashioned, skirted or the like. Coverage is important, and more so as we age, but trying to hide imperfections with a larger than life swimsuit isn’t the best strategy. An attempt to cover everything may only draw more attention to those seeming figure flaws. Case in point, if you have large thighs, don’t try to hide them under a swim skirt. You may inadvertently appear to be wearing your tent to a camp-out. Opt for a one piece with a higher cut.
This swimsuit has a higher cut, but it also has a lot going on. Very cute. Proceed with caution.
If you have tummy trouble, a high-waisted bikini bottom may only accentuate the tummy you are trying to disguise. A one-piece with stripes that point downward help slim your figure while providing coverage.
On the other hand, I have talked about The Power of the Peplum in the past for tummy disguise, try something like this
Or we can cover all the bases at once and opt for A Miracle Suit!

Have fun shopping!
