Hannah and I have been searching for the perfect swim suit. Something cute. Something hip. Something in a size tiny (for han). Something modest.
When I say modest I don't mean this:
I mean regular swim suit coverage. No cap sleeves, no long shorts. We'll buy board shorts to match, and we have rash guards to cover up on top, but we want the option to tan. Board shorts and rash guards really are important in surfing. Especially if your spend more of your time struggling to stay on the board than on your feet. So we have those. But we want a cute suit for the beach and the pool.
Cute, but not scary. No high cut briefs. No cleavage. No bikinis. A tankini is okay, but we want full belly coverage.
This is proving to be more difficult than I had hoped. Even in the land of sun and surf.
We found some cute separates at Lands End, but the smallest they come is a 4-6. That's great for me, but not so good for Hannah. They have cute kids swimsuits, but we need a little support, you know? Also, when we decided to go ahead and order the small and just see how it fit, we found that they had already sold out of many of their small sizes. Bummer.
So we've gone to local swim shops, but low cut in front seems to be big this year. And little boy shorts are cute, but we need a little more height - we gots'ta be able to bend over!
My sister sent a link to Modbe. They have cute suits, but, I think a little more mom-ish than Hannah wants. In fact, I might order one for me, and a skirt. But, I have a feeling that I can only order if I join their little home-sales party club.
What's a mom to do?
We ordered this:
But I'm not sure. We are going to try two more stores this morning, and if we don't find anything we like better, than we'll keep it, but...
Do YOU have any ideas?
