My San Fran cousin

I am going out to San Francisco to visit my cousin GK and his family. I'm very excited because he is taking the whole week off, and with any luck, the kids, GK and I will head off on some adventure or another. . . should be loads of fun.

I mention this because he called tonight to check-in and discuss options. I'm game for anything, so I'm hoping the kids will have ideas of what they want to do. I may have to suck it up and buy a swimming suit. Going to California, odds are good there might be swimming. sigh. It needs to be a one piece since my stomach still looks like I was in a terrible car accident. OK. Not terrible, but not a fender bender! What do you think of the swimming dress? Does anyone else wonder when you hit the water does the whole dang thing float up and over your face? hmmm.

Then we have the tankini - again, if you have a belly, does the dang thing roll up when it hits your belly?

The green intrigues me. Is the stuff across the middle itchy? Does it really pull el stomach o in? I'd like to find a store - but all the good suits are gone now or totally expensive. These were all on newport-news and some are nicely priced- like $30.00. If anyone has suggestions, please feel free to chime in on what suit is most likely to NOT cause me utter horror when I put it on.

  1. Step away from the skirt thing. I have had one and can vouch that they do indeed immediately find their way up to your ears. Lands End makes Tankinis that stay put and are very cute. Mind you, you will pay extra for the good behavior. That green is a FAB color, but I bet the mesh doesn't feel so good. Probably a 1 piece in a great color will be your most comfortable and cute to boot.
