Posts Tagged ‘It Figures’

Wow, what a difference a year makes.  Last summer I was getting up the nerve to go into a public pool in a swimsuit and tonight I just bought two. I already have 2 swimsuits that I love, but because my plan is to go to the pool as often as I can this summer, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have another one.

To be honest, I didn’t intend to buy any suits tonight.  I was trying to find something to watch on t.v., and of course I landed on QVC.  (It’s so funny how often that happens, just ask my wallet).  They were doing an It Figures show, which has great swimsuits  that are made by real women.  Plus, they had models of all shapes and sizes modeling the suits, which really gave an accurate idea of how they would fit.  I’ve never bought this brand before, but the reviews were phenomenal, so I figured I’d give it a shot.  As I browsed through the inventory, I saw a great swimdress on clearance for $41 with only my size left (how lucky is that?):

I think it’s cute, and since I don’t have anything in these colors, I thought it would be a nice addition.

Then I was surfing around, which always gets me into trouble when it comes to online shopping, and I came across this swimsuit on another site, which had amazing prices on their suits.  Seriously, if you need a new suit, I’d check them out.  I have no idea what the quality is going to be like, but at those prices, if I get one season out of it, I’ll be happy.  I got this one for $38:

I love the hot pink and black together, and I think the style is going to be very flattering.

So you know what this means, don’t you?  I really need to start going to the aqua aerobics classes at the gym, otherwise I’m going to feel guilty that I own 4 swimsuits.  My new suits won’t arrive until next week or so, but I do still have the two other suits, and I really should start putting them to good use. One of the 24 Hour Fitness locations that I go to offers aqua classes all the time, and 3 evening classes that I have no excuse not to go to – 6:30 on Mon., Tues., and Wed.  This week I’m going to commit to going on Monday and Tuesday, and if I feel really into it, I’ll go on Wednesday too.

Tune in Tuesday to check up on me and see whether or not I made it to Monday night’s class.  Be sure to give me sh!t if I don’t go. 😛
