    I don't get how anyone comfortably buys bathing suits. Even when I was thin I hated that experience.

    Check out amazon swimwear.
    They have some very cute part and full coverage suits now.
    I even see many young women choosing suits they can swim in and not worry about falling out or bubbling out.

    Some look like workout wear with legs of different lengths and even zip-up short and long sleeve suits.
    Some are advertised as water ski suits but you can pretty much choose the amount of coverage you want.
    I like the one piece kind as a daily workout swimsuit that goes from the gym to the pool in a snap!

    But there Is pretty much any and as much coverage as you want and people are so used to seeing active water-wear now that it’s normal for all ages.

    I loooove this suit. I didn't realize they had ones with sleeves like this. It would be wonderful not just for the style but for the sun coverage. It would be nice to be able to swim without worrying about how well I did my back with sunscreen.

    Do you have a link for this particular suit?

    There's a couple listings that seem to have different sizes, so you can search the brand on amazon if this listing doesn't have your size: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0784WVGGR/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?th=1&psc=1

    TMI but I need a rash guard lower down, if ya know what I mean. Shaving has always been nightmarishly painful. Nice to know my ugly old Lycra shorts might actually be fashionable at the pool this year, although now that I’m down weightwise, it would be lovely to be able to show it off in a “normal” swimsuit. *sigh*

    ...the amount of money you will spend on new clothes.

    I calculate I bought about six whole new wardrobes during the course of my weight loss. Even with charity shops, that got expensive.

    But what I didn't anticipate is how much I'm still spending on clothes now I'm at my final size.

    First there was the 'this is my final size, I can buy good clothes that will last' splurge. Then there was the 'hey, I don't have to hide my tummy anymore, I can buy styles I never even looked at before' splurge. Then there was the 'holy *kitten* what is this "cold" malarkey, now I understand why people have a separate winter wardrobe' splurge. Then there was the 'wait, I can wear designer clothes now' splurge.

    Help, help, I think I've become a fashion victim... :s
    Same!!! lol I need a bigger closet :blush:
