Swimsuits for chubby girls

Alright, so I'm not really "chubby" per se, but I'm not skinny enough any more to wear a bikini. It's just not going to happen. Not only that, but I have the most disgusting blob of SKIN hanging off my midsection now after getting so gigantically pregnant with Cora. My stomach looks like an old woman's, all saggy and gross. You can feel the muscle under there, I faithfully do crunches and stuff, but that skin doesn't appear to be going anywhere.

So yeah, no bikinis for me, ever again. Which sucks, because there are SO many cute bikinis. But I could get over that. Except for one problem - apparently no one who wears juniors sizes wants to wear a one piece bathing suit. I found two at Target yesterday to try on - a medium was way too big - it was all baggy through the midsection (kind of like my stomach, ew) and the small was too tight around the legs and made me look like I had marshmallow baby legs. The ladies' section is still an option if I can find a bathing suit small enough, but then I'm looking at swimsuits with skirts attached and bodies that cover every inch of me - I dont' mind something a little sexy, just something that covers the belly. I'm so irritated!

I guess I'll just have to sit on the beach naked.


Dani is pregnant. Oooooooh I'm so jealous. I'm happy for her, but I'm jealous. I want more babies! and I want them NOW! Gotta fill up this new mini-van, ya know.


So today, I drive my fancy-pants new van over to my mother's house to show it off. I'm looking forward to it. Other than that, I have no excuse to leave the house, which means I'll need to be cleaning. :::sigh::: I just wanna drive. We do need to load stuff into the van though, things we usually have with us in the car. it'll be fun with all that cool storage to find places for everything. :o)

On today's list: change the cat litter, finish going through spring/summer clothes downstairs, buy disney tickets and maybe make Vegas reservations, and do a good run-through on my bedroom with a dust rag and vacuum.

Off I go!

I hate bathing suit shopping. This year, I AM going to wear a bikini with a big pregnant belly since I started showing at like 10 weeks with Delaney!! YAY!!!!

I am so jealous of your van. We definitely NEED one now!

they have some really cute one pieces at walmart, so quite a bit of skin, but cover the belly. They would look awful on me, since I am more than chubby, but they would probably be really cute on you.

I have a two-piece "tankini" I think it's called. I got it at Kohls, and the nice thing was you had to buy each piece seperately, so I could buy a different size for the top and the bottom. It's got a little skirt, but a cute one, since it's the "tankini" style and not an old lady pleated thing.

Can't wait to see pics of your van. We have a Pontiac Montana, not quite as loaded as yours, but I L-O-V-E it! (Now I need a pickup, as impractical as that is, I love them too!)
