We received these swimsuits from Red Dolly Swimwear coincidentally right before June came home for her last visit before the wedding. We decided to spoil ourselves and have a lake day... but our day definitely didn't go as planned. After driving 30 minutes to the lake, we were greeted by a barrier blocking us from driving to the 'beach' area. Being the rebels we are, we decided to walk to the area, which was not the best idea because after walking 2 miles in swimsuits and heels with our arms full of lake day supplies, we realized that our destination was much farther than we thought.. SO. MUCH. FARTHER. We ended up on the dock, sticking out feet in the water.
I've been telling Amelia since day one of blogging that if we were EVER contacted about swimsuits... she was in it alone. I'll be the first one to admit that I'm not entirely comfortable with my body and also yeah, I wear my corset most days and it's my security blanket but I sucked it up an wore a swimsuit anyways because 1) they were too cute to pass up and 2) I'd never make Amelia do this alone... even if I told her I was. My suit was The Noir Maillot and it was the perfect black one piece. I really loved the quality and fabric of the suit. However, because I'm only 4'11" and I have an incredibly short torso, I had quite a bit of excess fabric in my medium and my bust didn't fit in a small (Amelia's suit is a small and shes a smaller cup size than I am, but we tried it on me anyways... it was hilarious). Also, Amelia was confidently rocking the shit out of her swimsuit and I told her I felt like an insecure little raincloud, which made me feel like the photo below:
I've always said that I have the longest torso in the entire world. That may be a slight exaggeration, but it is super long, which is why I've never bought a swimsuit online before. This Red Dolly, "The Bella" in red and white polka dots surprisingly fit me pretty well! I will admit that I could have definitely benefited from having an extra inch or two, but that's only because I'm not used to my boobs being out so much. ;) Not to mention that I loved the print on the swimsuit, because we all know I rock a lot of polka dots.
Red Dolly Swimwear offers a variety of one pieces and two pieces for women, girls and babies. Now if only they had swimwear for cats so we could buy our fur daughters a matching swimsuit...
