I don't know why, but I ended up looking at Nordstrom.com yesterday, specifically the swimwear dept. Am I a glutton for punishment? Maybe. Since having my three kiddos in three and a half years I have lost 25 lbs (and still working on more), but in no way do I have a swimsuit body. It is inevitable though with said three kids that I will have to be in the water this summer.
I bought two cheep swimsuits last year that are not in great shape to be used again so, I'm splurging this year and hoping for the best (I ordered online!). I chose this one piece for many reasons: black-always a good bet, asymmetric-more stylish, cute-gathers and mesh, and the all important spandex to help with the mommy tummy. A cute one piece is hard to come by so I jumped on it even though I won't have a need for it until the end of May. It is already on back order and the cutest are the first to go and nowhere to be seen come June. In times like these I'm so glad for my 'fun' job that allows me to splurge on myself when I otherwise wouldn't have.
Here's to being ahead of the game and hoping it fits!

Update: The swimsuit fit and did work out well. Too bad my dear husband liked the affordable swimsuit from Old Navy better and I wore that one most of the summer.
