Online Shopping Spree: Land's End Swimsuit

I know that some of you living in cooler climates might be shocked to hear this, but it's almost swimsuit season here in Texas. And that means it is definitely swimsuit shopping season. (pardon me while I have a minor heart attack at the thought.) I've known it was coming but I really haven't been mentally ready to tackle that yet. Well, Land's End contacted me and asked if I wanted to participate in their National Swimsuit Confidence Week.

I may hate shopping for a swimsuit, but I am a firm believer in having fun in the surf and sun and not letting my size keep me from getting out there. So I fully support the idea of swimsuit confidence and naturally I agreed to participate. I had no idea that Land's end had swimsuits, but they have a ton of them. And not only do they have regular swimsuits, but they also have plus size and mastectomy suits! How awesome is that? I have a family member who had a mastectomy so I know how much of a problem swimwear can be.

Here is the swimsuit that I selected to try out. I picked it because (a) I'm long waisted and I've been wanting to try a tankini b/c I think it will work better with my long waist and (b) it's got an underwire which is a MUST with my figure.

Once the swimsuit arrives, I'll let you know what I think and how it fits.
