Bikini Babe? Yay or Nay?

I have never felt comfortable in a bikini. I think they're adorable on other women, I just have yet to find one that I think is flattering on me. I'm about average sized (6 in pants, small on top) and I've found some that look ok on me, but nothing I feel confident in. I've got some stretch marks below my belly button from my pregnancy that really should be covered, but I do feel like my waist is nice enough to showcase. That's why I've been searching for a "retro high-waisted" swimsuit. I think they're really cute, but you don't see them on too many women in Southeast Missouri....maybe a little too retro for some? Anyway, what do you think of this one? Found it at JCrew.

Both pieces, top and bottom, are sold separately, so total I'm looking at $64.00 and that's on sale. Kinda pricey, huh? But if it fits well and I feel beautiful in it then the price really doesn't matter to me because I've been searching for the perfect swimsuit for awhile. I even bought two other swimsuits this year already that I just don't absolutely love. By the way, let me know if you're looking for a new tankini or two because I'd love to swap with you! ;)

Anyway, I'm looking for some feedback here....what do you think of this suit?? Do the bottoms remind you too much of a diaper? Or do you think it's adorably retro?


  1. This looks definitly adorable retro to me, so try it! It will look pretty cool. I came to this site looking for some different versons of bikini songs as I got a cd full of "Itsy Bitsy" stuff and a favourite is "Too big for her bikini" by Gerry Granahan, but don't worry, he didn't have you in mind.

  2. Love it!! its really in here in Spain too ;)!!


  3. Haha thanks Rockinbavarian! I wish I knew some bikini songs for you!

    And Stefi, if you love it, then I think it's a winner because you're one of the most stylish ladies I know!!

  4. No problem, I've got enough and I'm sure even a Spanish version for Stefi..Unbelievable, but there are songs about everything. By the way, today I watched the US soccer team playing the world championship here in Germany, great action!

  5. I love it, retro is very adorable, and high-waisted is definitely coming back! If you're buying online, make sure they have a good return policy just in case you don't end up liking it in person. I'm always cautious about buying clothes online.
