Did I miss the memo? When did swimwear prices go out the roof? I’m surfing the internet for a modest one piece…and yazooo…I see the price! $152!! $148!!! What happened to $29.99? I might even be able to go $49, but are you kidding me? I realize that with middle-age came needing a little more material to cover skin that I wouldn’t want seen, but what’s material cost, $30 a yd?
Some smart person out there is making a killing. Maybe it’s all that special material they use to tighten up, snug up, hold in my middle age spread…but it’s gonna cost me a fortune! Maybe it someone’s way of saying I shouldn’t be wearing a swimsuit at 50. One of the greatest things about being 49andcounting is the freedom to do what I want and wear what I want, and not be so darn influenced by what others might think!
So watch out world, you won’t be seeing my in a yellow poka dot bikini (thank your lucky stars), but after I get over the sticker shock I might just pull off a black & white zebra print once-piece!
