I use ‘swimwear’ in the loosest possible sense here, as actually, I can’t really swim.
Bit of a shocker isn’t it? I’ve never learnt proper strokes or breathing or anything, but I could once manage to get up and down the pool without drowning. I seem to have forgotten though. Now when I try to swim, Belle says I like look a walrus having a fit.
Because of the shame of not being able to swim, I’ve never really felt I can justify spending money on swimwear, so when we went to Spain last year my choice was between a black one piece that straps my boobs down like I’m auditioning for a male part in a panto, and a ‘bikini’ made up of two very brightly coloured but clashing pieces from a discount bin in Monsoon.
Again, not terribly sexy.
This year I’m only going to Cornwall, but you never know, the rain may let off for long enough for me to want to lie on the beach, with the potential for paddling, so I feel I should splash out* on something that doesn’t make me look like a weirdo.
So, while I was meant to be working, I had a casual browse at Panache Swimwear, and am thinking of buying this:
What do you think? My finger is hovering over the ‘checkout’ button, but I’m just not sure. Obviously I’m under no illusion that I would actually look like that in it, but still, it would definitely be better than what I have now. On the down side, if I do buy it, it will most likely rain for the entirety of the holiday.
What should I do?
*See what I did there? Splash out? I’m so funny.
