Oh Crap.

Back-story:  We're taking the boys up to the snowy Rocky Mountains on Thursday to spend the night in a nice hotel and swim in their amazing rooftop pool (all for free, woot!).

So I'm in the shower a few minutes ago trying to decide if I should shave my legs now or wait until the day we leave for the hotel, when it hits me....  I have no swimming suit. 

The last time I wore a bathing suit was in August and it was a size 3X.  I had already lost about 35 lbs and the suit barely stayed on me.  Wearing it now after losing 70 lbs. is totally out of the question.

When I tell hubby about the bathing suit dilemma he says, "Well, just go buy one."

Huh.  Really?  Just go buy one?!  It's December in Colorado.  Its below freezing outside.  WHERE IN THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO BUY A BATHING SUIT?!?!  And a plus-size one, nonetheless!!!  (barely plus-size, she add hastily)

So I called up my mom who lives about 5 minutes from my house.  I'm going over there in 30 minutes to see if one of her many suits fits me.

My mom is 5 feet tall and weights 170 lbs.  I am 5'7" and weigh 230 lbs. 

Lycra is stretchy, right?


*sigh* My night may very well end in tears.  Wish me luck.


  1. I swear I heard someone say that the Lane Bryant in Ft. Collins had swim suits... but I'm not 100% sure I heard that correct. (might be worth calling first).

    Good luck! Sounds like the snow is really coming down up there!

  2. Hi Jenny,
    I live in Colorado and I've seen swimsuits at Target. They should have something that fits.

  3. Well, the good news is that my mom's bathing suit fit! Perfectly! Thank GOD for lycra! But thanks for the tips, girls. I guess I've just never bothered to seek out the bathing suit section in the middle of winter.

    On a separate note... where are you two at in CO? I know Tracy Z is in the springs...

  4. Sounds like a great trip - next time you need a swimsuit check online. AlwaysForMe.com has some really cute plus size swimsuit styles in stock year round. Plus they always have some thing on sale ....http://www.alwaysforme.com/

  5. So glad you figured something out!

  6. Hi Jenny - I live in Westminster. I'm glad you found something to wear! I'm sure mine is getting big too - I just haven't had it on in several months!

    Have a wonderful time! - Sarah
