Swimsuits For Menopausal Bodies
Perhaps the only shopping expedition more dreaded than one for new jeans is the one to find new swimsuits. The thought of the ill-lit fitting room with its funhouse mirror is enough to make any menopausal woman hide in the air conditioning until winter. Or, at least, that’s how it used to be. Now, even if you’re dealing with menopause belly or any other body issue, there are swimsuits to make you look hot. (And feel like a million bucks.) While we tend to think of swimsuits as a summer must-have, depending on the climate you live in and/or vacation plans, a well-fitting swimsuit is a year-round goal! And, this is the perfect time to stock up. We have you covered (pun intended!)
There are styles to camouflage your midsection and downplay the role gravity is playing on your butt. Suits to lift your girls and your spirits along with them. One-piece, two-piece, skirted, sleeved, patterned, solid—take your pick. In fact, a full swim wardrobe is in order for all seasons. After all, variety is the spice of life! As you browse what’s out there, you can actually enjoy the hunt. Shopping for swimsuits online is SO much less stressful than that dressing room doom and gloom! By the way, Erin’s swimsuit pictured above is sold out in this exact color but it’s available in black and white here and black mesh here.
