I never owned a 2 piece suit in my life… even though you can’t tell!
- Sorry about the strange head tilt… Never owned a suit that wasn’t primarily black either!
CAN I HAVE A WOOHOO? THERE ARE BATHING SUITS AFTER A MASTECTOMY!
Today after a few annoying things happened (like setting up Meghan’s appointment for Friday morning with the stupid surgeon, and fighting with a credit reporting agency over an old identity theft issue) I got to try on my new bathing suits.
Now, this (almost 39 year old) body, is in no condition to model, but I was so very excited I had to share.
Since the mastectomy I have had a lot of work getting used to my new boobs. They are smaller than the old ones, and that seems to be just as difficult to adjust to as if they had become bigger. It just changes everything – the way everything fits and feels.
I have also had to get used to no underwire – in anything. That has been an understandable, but difficult transition. So, I have pretty much transformed my closet into tops that worked for me. Lots of new T shirts, a couple of dress shirts that still need a tuck at the shoulder to tighten them up by the boobs. But all in all – its going ok.
When I first put on last years bathing suits I did cry a little. I had to immediately put all but 1 (which was salvageable, but not great) up in the attic. Not only did the boobs just not work in those suits, the stress of the last few months has taken off some pounds. So they were a mess. I ordered 1 suit a few weeks ago. My husband made me take it off because he said it made my boobs look fake. (LOL… newsflash honey… ) But I understood.
Got these in the mail today and got the seal of approval on both. I have some nerve showing them here… but I want to know what you think.
So come on tell me – black, pink, or try again?
Have to have some fun, right?
