Ugh. You girls are younger. I just turned 40 and that bikini search isn't looking so good to me. We will see if diet and exercise gets me there in the next four months.

VS just came to Canada recently, so I don't have any experience with their swimsuits.  Are they generally good quality, flattering, etc?  What's the general consensus?  I'm lucky because I'll be able to stock on up clearance swimsuits at the end of summer, since I'm having a fall wedding :)

Weird. Thought I'd replied already. Anyhow... lol Let's try again. 

 

I have about 15 or so suits from VS. Mostly, I have the basic mix match types. I wear XS bottoms, L tops, so it's a lot easier to find suits that fit. Also, their basic suits come in several different colors, so you can have a lot of fun playing with the colors and styles. I have bandeaus, triangles, a few diff bottom styles, and all in multiple colors. The quality is fair, pretty good. Not spectacular, but definitely not cheap and flimsy. I am naturally dark/tanned and I haven't had any problems with see through issues, dry or wet. That's a good sign to me! Definitely catch a sale, make it must easier to justify the purchases and makes it so much more worth it.

You can do it! Four months is good time. 

 

For a good cheap find, try Old Navy. Yes, I'm completely serious. I had an appendectomy in July, but had a beach birthday party to attend on the 4th. So, I had to find a last minute one piece that was cute, attractive, flattering, and inexpensive. I tried Old Navy on a whim and lucked out. I got two one-piece swim suits. Very flattering, not too revealing.

I need to buy some new bathing suits! I haven't bought any but I have time my wedding isn't until 2012 so I have time. I actually got a really cute one at target, the only thing with them is that they have they're bathing suits out once Christmas is over. so you have to go to get first dibs. Can't wait to go shopping!

It is not based on age either.... I think you are as young as you feel so wear what feels good to you!
