What is it with swimsuits? I’ve always really struggled to find anything to fit me, mostly the problem is a long torso, apparently. In fact some companies make swimsuits specifically for us ladies inflicted with long torsos.
I not only have to suffer a long torso I also have serious cellulite on my thighs and I really don’t feel comfortable in public with nothing more then a bit of Lycra covering my rude bits. Problem is that most of the time said Lycra/spandex whatever these things are made out of fails to cover my rude bits properly. Bending over to look for something in my bag on a crowded beach is a no no. I normally fling off my clothes and run for the sea as quickly as possible trying to avoid watching eyes. I also need something that will remain in situ when I am flung down water slides after the kids or I am body boarding on the north Cornish coast. Yes, I have suffered the indignity of being proud of punch with myself for catching the surf on my bit of polystyrene only to stand up, victoriously punch my fist in the air before realising that I am naked from the waist up. Thank god the thing is secured at the crotch otherwise I doubt I would have ever seen it again…
So, back to the dreaded swimsuit shopping. I stick to black. Always. So much more flattering and chic, And bikini days are long gone – my tummy after 3 kids does not need to be on display. I have hunted high and low ladies trust me and this one by seaspray is really very good, it is my favourite suit and I find it really comfortable. It doesn’t ride up, its black and I love the removable straps. I like to wear a oversized white cotton shirt flung on top…
I also love these (don’t forget to check out my Pinterest page for all the info on where to buy)…
Talking of pricey I hear from reliable sources that French ladies swear by Eres, I guess I will never know how wonderful these are because the price is way out of my league, this one comes in at a cool £320 from net-a-porter
I would love some feedback from anyone else with a long torso who struggles with swimwear… where do you buy yours from?
