Anyway, last year I discovered this new style of bikini top at Target, and I fell in love. I see they are back again this year at almost every store, so I must not have been the only one.
I present to you, what is called the flounce or hanky style top:
Not a tankini, but not hey-look-at-my-boobies triangle top. Because I have never looked good in a triangle top, not even at my smallest. I like it because it is still a 2 piece, but offers a bit more coverage, I don't feel naked, and I don't feel like H is going to yank it off and give everyone at the community pool a free show.
This year I bought a royal blue top from Target, but because I am slightly curvy on bottom, Target bottoms do not work for me. Serious case of muffin top. So I am still searching for matching bottoms, and hope to find them soon. I don't like matchy matchy anyway, so I am just looking for something that coordinates. Hoping to stop by a VS soon and try one on that I have seen online.
We are taking 2 trips to the beach this Summer, so a new suit or 2 is definately needed. I already scored a super cute cover up at J Crew on clearance with a gift card. So I paid $.03 for it. Score!
