Swimsuit Shopping

Swimsuit shopping makes me want to poke my eyes out
I despise it
This year I’ve decided to shop online
I’m not sure it’s the best approach
But it’s the approach I’ve decided upon

Swimsuit shopping makes me sigh heavy sighs
I waste so much time checking reviews
And putting swimsuits into my cart
Only to delete them later

Swimsuit shopping makes me cringe
And wish for a different kind of body
And the guts to try something new

Swimsuit shopping makes me anxious
And annoyed all at the same time

Swimsuit shopping is the worst.

  1. I ordered (and returned) 13 different ones on amazon last year since you couldn’t use the store fitting rooms. The worst. best of luck!


  2. I so agree with you! I try to avoid this as much as possible. In fact, I’ve been known to wait until the elastic no longer is elastic, before I shop for a new suit. Thanks for sharing!


  3. I love that subtle rhyme between “eyes” and “sighs”, and also the progression from deciding not to go shopping in person to not liking shopping online to realizing it’s a bigger issue than the shopping. Funny, and not funny both.


  4. Such a universal topic! In an unbelievable stroke of good luck, I ordered a tankini set online after reading every review available, and both top and bottom were perfect. Shocking. I proceeded to order another one in the same size, so now I will not have to search for years.Hurray. Cute post.
