Is buying a bathing suit traumatic or no big deal for you?

 at the beach  Normally it's a traumatic experience for me but went to Penney's and found something right away. Whew, that's done for another two years.

No. I'm not one to care what people think about my clothing, lol. I go in, pick up something I think is cute, and walk out (after paying of course).

No one has ever said anything to me, except when I was pregnant with my oldest son, I was at the hotel pool and some chick walked past in the same bikini I had on and said, "Ugh, skank. Put that nasty pregnant belly away." I just looked at her and said, "Yeah, because your flab is MUCH better."

Seriously, the biggest you could get was an XL (cheap Wal-Mart thing) and she needed at least a 3XL. Her bottoms were so stretched out they were see through. I was like, "What an odd person to talk about my "nasty" belly."

 Same thing for me give or take. Only I have to get a new one this year I think. Mine are all out of whack in sizes. Since I've lost weight, gained it, got pregnant, lost weight, and now put back on 5 lbs. I hate you five pounds. Lol. Anyways yes, it's traumatic. I find something I love then realize, my stomach should NOT be out. So it's a pain, as I don't like one pieces either. Maybe one day.

 And you said nothing other than that and you were pregnant? Lol. I don't think I would of kept my mouth shut when I was pregnant if someone made a comment like that to me, dressed as she was. Lol. Kudos to you for being more of a decent human than I!

yep. 5 lbs don't seem like a lot but when it comes to clothes it tends to be. I tod my husband today that my pants got smaller  and he laughed. they have gotten so tight in the thighs and butt i honestly thought about finding another pair, yet they still don't fit in the waist. 

with swim suits i tend to wear shirt over then if i am anywhere people besides my family can see me.

I just said, "Yeah, because your flab is so much better."

I didn't realize her suit was see through until she walked back by and I saw her backside.

And by the way...I'm probably as big now as she was then, so I'd never wear that suit now. I have more sense than that, lol.
