I waited in terrified anticipation until it finally arrived in the mail. I opened the package, was nauseated by the scent of the lycra and spandex, and hurriedly tried it on -- for fear that I would lose my courage. It didn't fit. It wasn't unbearable tight, but it was unbearably short. I had an entire Interstate of cleavage hanging out the top -- and this is a tough feat to accomplish, seeing as how my boobies don't start nearly as high as they once did. I am not excessively tall, but apparently I have a freakishly long torso. This is new information for me.
So, I sent the suit back and re-ordered the same one in a larger size. It's quite hard to find a cute swimming suit sized for a long torso -- and I am super not ready for a bikini. It should arrive tomorrow and I am hoping the extra room will provide me some extra length (in the mean time, I have just been hanging out in running shorts in the back yard while my son splashes in his baby pool). If not, I have already picked out what I will order next.

|This one might be better because it will keep my hair dry -- |
which will help me to not have to do the mom-style giraffe neck thing.
Be brave, get a wet suit. And thanks for keeping me In Good Company.
