I have had this one swimsuit for probably four years now. I’ve really liked it, but wanted something a little different this year. It dips a bit too low for me in the front, showing what I lack more than what I’ve got ;).
That’s one of the things I love about it—full coverage on my tummy even when I’m preggers!
After trying on a few new swimsuits last week, I remembered how very much I HATE swimsuit shopping. (yes, hate is a strong word, but it is indeed the feeling I have when it comes to trying on swimsuits). And since I liked everything about my swimsuit besides the low cut on top, I figured I’d try and make it work for me. So here’s what I did with it:
*Obviously, not every swimsuit will have extra ties to do this with. You can find some matching swimsuit fabric, use a pair of matching bottoms that you can cut up, or there may be some extra length on your swimsuit (which was what I had originally planned on doing—just taking some off the bottom to make the ruffles). I also thought you could try it with knit or, if you don’t mind finishing the edges, any other fabric, though it will probably fade in the chlorine. White ruffles could be cute and wouldn’t fade, however!*
And P.S. These pictures are a bit embarrassing to post…me, with my bright whiteness, posting a bit too much skin for my comfort!
