Some years ago I purchased a greeting card that cracked me up. I bought it for myself, just to keep, because it makes me smile every time I see it.
Here's the front:
This inside of the card reads: "I think the ruffle really makes a difference, don't you?"
According to the on-line article I mentioned yesterday, the ruffle should be up around the neck. That would make all the difference. hahaha
Please don't think I am body bashing or being hateful towards my own body. I just like to laugh at my imperfections. Years ago we bought a house with a pool. I was thrilled because I could finally swim in private. The first time we used the pool, my husband and kids were already in the water when I came out in my swimsuit. Our dog did not recognize me in all my bright white blob-ness and began to growl with his hackles up. Seriously! Each time I tried to get to the pool, he got between the family and me, teeth bared and growling. It was soooo funny! We still laugh about it.
I've come a long ways since then. I weigh far less, and I can tolerate being seen in public in my swimsuit, which is a good thing since we now live in a condo and use the pool at the clubhouse. But still... trying swimwear on is just a grind.
