The beach calls to me. And I’ve answered back by planning a weekend getaway. Do you feel the same way? Have you already visited the beach several times and are wondering what has taken me so long? LoL No worries! Your bloggerly host will be a satisfying her whims soon enough.


However, I need some gear for this job. You know what I’m talking about: the cool, colorful bag, the hair essentials, the floppy hat and most of all the bathing suit! Now, it seems that some women have built-in radars for finding that last item. You know the ones I’m talking about … Yeah, can we say skyscraper legs and perfect hourglass figures?

But for the majority of us, the ones who are embracing our flaws, finding the right suit can be a challenge. I can tell you that’s the case with me. How bad is my inability to find a suit, one that flatters my super small torso? We could be here all day listening to my woes. Yet, there’s a light at the end of that there tunnel. Last year the high-waisted suit made a comeback along with the ruffle top and dress style bathing suit. I even found a few oddball long-sleeved suits while searching for the perfect one for me. I’m not even sure what that was all about, but okay.


This month’s Crush Craves features the swimsuits I finally settled on. Yes, they are high-waisted. Yes, they’re going to emphasize my lack of a torso. But gosh darn it, I’m fully ready to embrace my flaws (great topic for another post). I’ve worked hard to get in shape. And continue to do so. I want to flaunt my waistline a bit before I can no longer do so. LoL

Having said all that, I’d like to share my first collection of bathing suit goodies. I promise to take a picture in the one I choose so you all can see what it looks like. And yes, I’m leaning toward one of the cute little purple numbers from Etsy and Choies.

What do you think of my choices? Have you found your perfect suit(s) yet? Sound off in the comments and let us know!
